Did you know that when you heal yourself, you are also healing your family line? The work that we do in healing ourselves has wide-ranging effects, way beyond our awareness and the present day. In this special circle, we will focus on the links between ourselves and our lineage, and how they are affecting our daily lives - our coping mechanisms, how we care for and support ourselves, our relationships, money, and security. We are the living embodiments, the legacies, of our ancestors for better and for worse.

The latest research in the emerging field of Epigenetics shows that the effects of trauma experienced by our ancestors have far-reaching effects. A family history that includes war, colonization, abuse, displacement, and other traumas can be passed down to descendants through genes and DNA. We carry this pain, and these ancient memories, in our bodies and experience them somatically and energetically. 

 When we think of healing our ancestors, we may envision ceremonies being performed in far away lands that are too remote for us to even identify with. The reality is, there are many accessible ways to heal the trauma of our lineage. In this circle, we will call in and connect with our ancestors to assist us in this work. We will use the ancient Pranayama Breath technique to shake up stagnant energy and release it up and out of the body to free ourselves and our ancestors. This process not only creates space to magnetize our desires, it facilitates the healing and release of old traumas, old stories, anxieties, fears, and lower vibrational energies. This is a life-changing practice that will transform energetic patterns that are not in your highest good, or are preventing you from carrying out your soul's mission and life's purpose. 

Breathwork is a fast and easy way to get clarity about a situation, release old programs and patterns, and restore your physical, emotional and spiritual body to a state of wholeness. You can actually feel your vibration rising with this ancient practice! Release what no longer serves you. Leave feeling renewed and refreshed. You will feel so much lighter! And, Breathwork is a completely safe, natural healing tool that perfectly complements any other healing or therapies you may be doing. During the session, Jordan will hold space for you and support your journey with love, essential oil blends, palo santo, sweetgrass and Reiki.

What Is Sliding Scale?
We offer all of our community offerings and some private sessions by Sliding Scale. 

We believe everyone is entitled to heal their wounds so they can thrive; we also believe that the wellness and healing practitioners deserve to make a living wage.  In order to make this possible, we ask you to pay as much as you can, so those who might not be able to pay as much can still receive their healing session - this is the idea behind 'paying it forward'.  We are all in this together, and we choose to do our best to take care of one another.  Thank you in advance!
