In this webinar we will cover
Healing doesn't necessarily "just happen" with time.
Many people who lose a parent, hardly ever talk about them again. The tenderness of the wound can create a feedback loop, where we don't want to talk about them because it hurts, and it's so painful because we haven't spoken about them and really processed this immense loss and the transformational nature of the transition.
This breaks my heart. It's BIG. And I know another way is possible.
Where we smile when we hear the name of our loved one. Where we have given and continue to give ourselves the space we need to grieve, so that we are able to experience the joy of remembering this beautiful, deeply significant person in our lives. Where our relationship with them continues to grow and evolve, in new ways. inside us.
I believe that this loss can actually become a window into a deeper knowing. And an opportunity to connect to a wide and deeply transformational web of unseen support.
This is the prayer of this offering.
May we create a world where we cultivate an ongoing connection and intimacy with our ancestors. Where the flow of love and life continues to express and experience healing through us. Where the whole cycle of Life and Death, back to Life is honored, celebrated and held with care, joy, love and respect.
This is my hearts work.
If you resonate with what I am sharing here and you feel this path calling to you at this time, welcome!
I trust that you will know if this is a journey is for you.
How is this experience unique?
In Losing a Parent, Gaining and Ancestor, I've woven in some of the post powerful tools that have supported me in my own healing journey and spiritual evolution.
We explore shadow work, somatic embodiment, deep imagery, ritual and ceremony, to create a cocoon where you are safe to experience the river of grief with loving witness and expert support.
This is the only course I know of that offers this type of initiation into ancestor work.

The Magic of a Group Journey
There can be a serendipitous and alchemical, way that this type of group work constellates.
Often a person is a step ahead or a step behind us, so we get to see processes supported that may be coming a bit later on our own healing journey. Or we may witness others in circle experiencing lessons we have experienced in the past.
This enables a rooting in of more understanding and healing, because we're not only receiving and witnessing support from our present vantage point, but seeing into later steps and reflecting on past processes with a bit of distance, as we witness.
In my experience, this co-creating of community, rooted in vulnerability and Trust, is the antidote to feeling alone in our suffering. By gathering in this way, we create a community of support. So that we become more resilient and resourced, we rise up together.
As Ram Das so eloquently put it, "we are all walking each other home."
Weaving with the Mystery
My orientation to facilitation is to support the flow of the mystery. So, I create structure and then move intuitively with what wants to come through.
Because of this every session that I offer is unique and alive and in this way, tailored to those who choose to enter.

"I loved working with Natalie. I loved the way there was plenty of time to get into deep state of processing and vulnerability. I loved how safe I felt, how seen, heard, felt and cared for.
Natalie is a balanced and strong guide. She is watery and feminine and focused. She has a seemingly endless capacity to acknowledge the things we feel are too dark to love, and helped me to shine my own light on [these aspects of myself, as well]."
Nula Fisher -Artist and Medicine Maker
The gentle guidance back to the present moment, present goals and how they make me feel was so helpful.
And being able to open up and be truthful with no fear of judgement was wonderful!
Honestly, I would not change anything about my experience.
