Healing Family & Ancestors – Ceremonial Family Constellations
Presented by Jill Purce
Heal family trauma, release unhelpful patterns, and dissolve trans-generational tendencies in this powerful family constellation workshop. Family or ancestral traumas like accidents, suicides, wars, addictions, mental illness, emigrations, incarcerations, or adoptions can cause painful patterns of exclusion trapped in the unconscious field of the family, acting as magnets for later generations to unconsciously repeat. These inherited patterns can create powerful unconscious compulsions, resulting in finding ourselves doing things that don’t make sense in the context of our current lives. By honoring and restoring what has been excluded, we re-establish the integrity of the field, dissolving trans-generational tendencies and liberating the living. This work can be intense, oracular and profoundly healing. Purce’s unique method combines chant, ceremony and family constellations to heal the resonant fields of family and ancestors, unlocking persistent patterns so that order and joy are restored.
Jill Purce is a voice teacher who developed a new way of working with the voice, introducing group overtone chanting to produce a single note while amplifying vocal harmonics. Since the early 1970s she has taught internationally diverse forms of contemplative chant. Jill worked with German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, exploring the spiritual dimension of music, and learned overtone chanting in the Himalayas with the chant master of the Gyutö Tibetan Monastery. She has practiced Dzogchen since 1978, working with Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. In the last twenty years, she pioneered her workshop Healing the Family and Ancestors, a unique combination of family constellations, chant, and ceremony. Jill is author of The Mystic Spiral: Journey of the Soul, and her recordings include Overtone Chanting Meditations and The Healing Voice.
