Wyld Practitioner Track

Shamanic Witchcraft Year One – Ancestral Practice

Instructor: Lady Raven, The Wyld Witch
 12 months
Class Level: 2
Pre-requisites: Fundamentals of Shamanic Witchcraft
Offered: Once a Year

In this course, we will explore our relationship with our Ancestors.  This relationship is the foundation of all of our spiritual practice and should always be our first stop when we are looking for spiritual helpers. We are part of many lineages in our lives today.  Our biological family lineage, our soul lineage, our spiritual lineage, and we even have lineages at work.  What is the difference between all of these lineages and how do we know if they are well?  We will explore the difference between healthy ancestors and those who are not well and how we can contribute to them becoming healthy over time.  What is Ancestral trauma and how do we clear it? How do we build an ancestor altar and begin our ancestral practice?

We will move step by step to help you build your practice and understand every aspect of ancestral veneration.  This course takes place via Zoom live sessions.  Each session is recorded so you and re-watch them as many times as needed.  Each lesson will also have activities for you to complete to put the skills you learned to work! We highly recommend signing up for the Wyld Witch program to make this a fully immersive experience.
