Ancestral Call To Balance Embracing Feminine And Masculine Wisdom
Re-emerging your ancient grandmother and grandfather wisdom Ancestral Call to Balance is an alternative recovery process that is a unique holistic journey designed to assist those who are seeking to balance unhealthy patterns. The process guides individuals by moving through the medicine wheel teachings, healing each stage of life from childhood to Elder hood. The program integrates earth centered teachings and ceremony, experiential and expressive arts and principles of recovery. The aim of this process is to inspire participants to discover their own inner wisdom guided by the Grandmother and Grandfather stories, songs and expressions I received throughout my recovery process into balance.
*For every 5 complete Ancestral Call to Balance resources sold, 1 resource will be donated to a treatment centre, shelter or an individual in need of this resource.
The program is designed as two, 13 month cycles, one following the Grandmother Teachings and one following the Grandfather teachings. It can be utilized or delivered in a variety of ways such as circles/group format, working independently or with a therapist/support person, in treatment settings and educational settings. The experiential storybook and workbook is divided into 26 stories; therefore, for those using this as a group experience will meet 26 times. Depending on how the program is delivered, participants can meet according to their needs. Groups might meet once or twice a month, individuals may approach the steps weekly or monthly – the pace is flexible to adapt to the participants needs. Each step builds upon the next and all the creative and experiential exercises strengthen the healing component.
At each step, participants experience an earth-centred story, experience a song and expressive exercise. Each activity is designed to allow participants to express their own experience and bring into balance their own masculine and feminine aspects. The 13 moon cycles can be repeated over time to deepen one’s healing process.
To go on this journey of self-discovery you will need some tools. A new dream journal chosen by your inner child is required for this work. Basic art supplies could include paint, construction paper, coloured pencils, scissors, markers, crayons etc. Additional materials will be listed within each creative exercise. In between each teaching story, participants will turn to the workbook where they will find the corresponding two weeks’ worth of expressive exercises for each step story. The workbook contains weekly dream recording, affirmational and creative exercises, daily check in focused writing, and inspirational images. PARTICIPANTS CAN DOWNLOAD ACCOMPANYING RECORDINGS OF THE STORIES AND SONGS FROM THE ANCESTRAL CALL TO BALANCE WEBPAGE. These are included with the purchase of this alternative recovery resource.
