February - May 2019
Every lineage includes loving and wise ancestors. Ancestral support amplifies personal vitality and enhances communal well-being. Cultivating connection with these bright and benevolent ancestors creates ease with living family members and helps clarify one's life-path, relationships and purpose. This connection can be a great support toward healing trauma as well as anchoring ancestral blessing and gifts.
The Jewish Ancestral Healing Online course weaves practices of Jewish ancestor reverence with immersive individual Ancestral Lineage Healing sessions. The immersion includes three personal Ancestral Lineage Healing sessions with Taya Mâ or ancestral lineage healing practitioner Yael illah, content material on Jewish ancestor reverence practices delivered in audio and written format, and optional (recorded) monthly group video calls. The three personal sessions include an assessment of students’ four primary bloodlines and continue toward connecting with an ancestral guide to anchor blessing and bring healing / repair through one of the lineages.
In our opening call (optional / recorded), we'll review the principles of the Ancestral Lineage Healing model and set clear intentions for the work. The second two calls (optional / recorded) are check-in and integration calls, space for sharing experiences, questions, receiving feedback and connecting in community. Audio and written content of the course highlights Jewish ancestral reverence practices including working with stones, yahrzeit practices of remembering, the ancestralization practice of reciting Mourner's Kaddish, the practice of pilgrimage known as Hillula, and more.
Course registration is $475 upfront or 3 monthly installments of $180 (totaling $540). To register, or with questions, fill out the contact form.
Video calls are Sundays February 3 and March 3 @ noon Pacific / 3 pm Eastern, April date TBA - calls are optional and are recorded for those who can’t attend.
The seven weeks between the Jewish holidays of Passover and Shavuot - known as the period of counting the Omer - invite us on an intentional journey from constriction to pleasure, union & revelation. The Omer offers a focused opportunity to bring attention to patterns we desire to transform.
In Sex and the Sephirot, we’ll engage the Omer toward experiencing greater erotic presence, deepening our commitment to sex that is nourishing and healthful for us, and embracing ritual practices of self-pleasure - or pleasure with partners - amidst the support and container of sex-positive community and joyful accountability. We’ll work with the sephirot through an embodied pelvic mapping of the kabbalistic tree of life created specifically for this course.
This offering is for you if: You have a pattern around self-pleasure or sex with partners that you want to transform. You feel excited - and perhaps a little nervous - about being held in a lovingly tended group container to additionally integrate the sacred into your erotic life. You desire to claim pleasure as prayer.
This seven week journey includes weekly teachings delivered by audio and text, three collective video calls which are a combination of teaching and personal check-in's, optional chevrutah connection with a classmate and a 30 minute individual support session by Zoom with Taya Mâ. Video calls are Sundays April 21, May 12 & June 9 @ 10 am Pacific / 1 pm Eastern.
