Medicine For The Earth is a wonderful course that was created by Sandra Ingerman
"With Medicine for the Earth: Gathering and Healing with Spiritual Light, you learn how to transform personal and environmental pollution by transmuting negative beliefs, attitudes, and emotional energy.
This training will investigate how you can work in cooperation with helping spirits and the spirits of the land—as well as getting in touch with your own internal divine nature—to create healing and positive change.
With spiritual practices and learning how to shift our consciousness, we can add to all the brilliant environmental work going on today. But we must learn the power of integrating spiritual work into our daily lives." Sandra Ingerman
These powerful skills, once learned can be integrated into our daily lives.
Shamanic journeying experience is required. (if you have questions call or email Alec)
Suggested reading Medicine for the Earth: How to Transform Personal and Environmental Toxins by Sandra Ingerman.
"Sandra Ingerman’s book Medicine for the Earth introduced readers to powerful practices that can allow us to generate profound and measurable healing for our environment."

“Participating in a Trance Dance gives the opportunity to connect more clearly with your heart,” says Alec Davis, facilitator of the Trance Dance events. “All of us spend a great deal of time in our rational mind; this is the chance to really listen to our heart versus our head.”
Trance Dance is a unique blend of body movement, healing sounds, dynamic percussive rhythms, transformational breathing techniques and the innovative use of a blindfold or bandana - together stimulating a 'trance' state that promotes spiritual awakenings, mental clarity, physical stamina and emotional well-being. Driven by unique musical soundtracks recorded specifically for this method of healing, Trance Dance takes participants on an 'inner journey' not limited to our normal perceptions of space/time. Ritual trance journeys have been a vital part of shamanic and eastern dance cultures for thousands of years.
Come journey with us; contact Maya Whole Health to register contact Maya Whole Health the link is just below.

"Feeling freedom and then connection with the universe at Trance Dance was uplifting and helped me find peace in this busy world that can take up far too much of our time and energy. During the remarkable time, I was able to focus on my breathing and let the rhythms flow through me. I heard many positive affirmations such as, "I am light", "I am life", "No more fears" and single words such as "peace", "joy", and "open". I was able to go inside myself, feel comfortable, and then be inspired. I hope everyone will make the time to enjoy such meaningful encounters by joining Alec for his next Trance Dance."

Ancient cultures know the importance of honouring the ancestors. They know that each one of us is part of a long chain of those who came before us. They know that healed ancestors means a healthy family. For that reason honoring the ancestors through ritual is embedded in daily life.
However, many people today are disconnected from their ancestors because of family dysfunction, trauma, war, or possibly from a lack of cultural knowledge.
I would say that about 80% of the issues my clients come to me with are a result of a wounded family. In order to heal the family, we must also heal the ancestors because past family experiences often pass down the family chain to affect us today. All our ancestors need to be honored, especially those who lived or died tragically, so the trauma of their death stops disturbing the family. When we honor them, we restore them to the family tree and repair the collective lineage.
Honoring our ancestors is honoring our future. We are the bearers of both pain and blessings of many generations. Working with and healing the family tree is a powerful way to support our well-being, and the well-being of our family at the present time.
By remembering our ancestors with laughter or with tears, we welcome them home, and allow the tree of our lineage to become strong. As a result, we feel more supported, and less lonely or abandoned. This is so because our ancestors care about us deeply, and wish to energetically empower us.
Should you feel called to step forward and be the healer of your family lineage, you may want to consider joining this workshop. This workshop teaches how to find your guardian ancestor through shamanic journeying and how to forgive, be forgiven and heal those who came before you. It is powerful work that benefits you, your family, and your family’s descents of future generations to come. The objective of this course is to reconnect with the ancestors, so that they can heal us and support us in manifesting our dreams.
