Our ancestral mothers cry “Mercy” Let’s roll up our sleeves and get to the heart of it!




“I don’t see distant wars and anti-environmental capitalism being able to survive in a world full of initiated woman.” ~ Dr. Oscar Serrallach


Our ancestral mothers cry “Mercy” Let’s roll up our sleeves and get to the heart of it!

So much of what is happening in the world around around us can be tracked down through an initial cultural wound of the emergence of patriarchal systems. Through this, the very source of how we are brought into the world, our Mothers, was systemically stripped of all majesty. Enslaved, related to property, a common market place status, this wound leaves with it a legacy of the emergence of other cultural wounds: war, poverty, caste systems, and earth disconnection. As patriarchy became institutionalized it relegated women to end fighting amongst themselves, and attempting to reclaim their power through their daughters as our ancestral mothers struggled to find some balance of the sovereignty they once knew. Thus grew the what we have come to know as the mother wound.

The mother wound is a matrilineal wound, a burden that manifests in mothers, and is passed on from generation to generation. It’s the pain and grief that grows in a woman as she tries to explore and understand her power and potential in a patriarchal society that doesn’t make room for it, depriving her of her destiny and forcing her to internalize the dysfunctional patterns learned by previous generations of women.


Symptoms of the mother wound include limiting core beliefs which are a form of personal self sorcery. They include: comparison: not feeling good enough, shame: a consistent background sense that there is something wrong with you, attenuation: a feeling you must remain small in order to be loved

and a persistent sense of guilt for wanting more than you currently have. Frequently this is manifested as: not being your full self because you don’t want to threaten others, having a high tolerance for poor treatment from others, emotional care-taking, feeling competitive with other women, self-sabotage other wise known as self sorcery, and being overly rigid, controlling, and judgmental.


“For every human being, the very first wound of the heart was at the site of the mother, the feminine. And through the process of healing that wound, our hearts graduate from a compromised state of defensiveness and fear to a whole new level of love and power, which connects us to the divine heart of Life itself” ~Bethany Webster

Transforming and transmuting the mother wound is an opportunity for healing and for transformation. This does not imply removing or fixing the traumas and scars from our childhood that we all carry. Transformation and transmutation is about slowly developing a new relationship with what is difficult in your life, such that it is no longer a controlling factor. As we engage in this healing process we will slowly remove the layers of projection that keep us stuck and emerge with a clear sense of self and personal destiny.

In this one day immersion we will embark on a transformational journey to the collective healed ancestral mothers where we will:

Explore the ways the mother wound has created burdens on your ancestral lineages and the current ways it impacts you personally.
Develop a personal relationship with a healed ancestor and guide who will support you as you retrieve vital soul essence and transmute the mother wound into a source of empowerment and sovereignty.
Receive initiation into the divine feminine for your personal healing and re-connection to the Earth Mother, by way of the feminine.
Journey as a collective of newly initiated women to perform a larger world healing around the cultural wounds of patriarchy.

A we emerge from the collective tending as a tribe of newly initiated women we can expect to have:

  • Fluency and honed skills in handling of emotions as they are now seen as a source of wisdom.
  • Sovereignty: having healthy boundaries that support you.
  • Integration with an inner mother who provides unconditional love, support & comfort to younger parts.
  • Self assuredness: Knowing yourself as competent and open to infinite possibilities
  • Renewed compassion for yourself and other people
  • Self Validation and the sense of no longer needing approval or permission from others to be you!
  • Renewed trust in life to bring you what you need
  • Backing from your healed ancestral mothers & with the divine feminine to support you in your life.
  • Increased trust in your intuition, your inner compass.
