Ancestral Reconnection

for Witches and Radicals of Celtic Descent

– an invitation to connect with ancestral plant kin through lore, relationship and ritual –

Autumn 2022

This sacred container will engage in conversations on ethical relationship building with plant kin culturally relevant to descendants of Celtic cultures from the lands today known as Eiré (Ireland), Alba (Scotland) and Cymru (Wales). We will open into lore and historical practice; ritual for connection to season, place and kin; dialogue on settler identity and responsibility on North America / Turtle Island; and community connection with others of shared lineage and politics for resourcing and accountability. Participants will be invited to consider what ancestrally rooted unsettling processes could look like, and, together with plant kin, envision personal and collective steps inward and forward.

this is an offering about plants and process.

FAQs
How long will I have access to the course?

Participants will have access to the content for the life of the course. This will be at least one year on the Podia platform (but likely longer!). 

What is the time commitment for this course?

This is a 12 week program broken up into six, biweekly sections. For each session, you will have access to 1-2 hours of learning + experiential content through Podia. You are encouraged to work through this at your own pace over the two weeks in between calls. There are invitations to practice, as well as bonus content, and you are invited to engage with these as deeply as feels supportive to your process. The practice invitations for each module can range from 30 minutes to 3 hours; it’s all up to you how deep you want to go. Additionally, we will have 6 calls which will each last 1.5 hours. This is an invitation to devote 1-2 hours each week throughout the winter to tending your ancestral connections with care and intention.

Will we be ingesting plants throughout this course?

No! Within this course container, we will focus on non-consumptive relationship building with plantkin.

My practice is slow, intentional and intimate. I’m not only social media so much; I do occasionally share things through my instagram, @hawthornandyew. However, the best way to stay in touch and hear whats new is to sign up for my newsletter.

You’ll hear from me on a monthly-ish basis, and these notes will contain info on upcoming workshops and programs, new zines, things my friends and peers are working on, and more.
