CBD 2023: Healing with the Ancestors – Toltec Practices for Intergenerational Flourishing with Brenda Salgado, MS

October 31, 2023 | 4:00pm - 5:30pm

Toltec and indigenous traditions have a deep understanding of the importance of cultivating relationships with our Ancestors in order for us and future generations to heal, flourish and thrive. For many in modern society, we don't always know how to work with ancestors, may not know their names or stories, yet we still carry strong imprints in us of their traumas, challenges, gifts, and talents that have been passed down the line. In this workshop, Brenda will introduce participants to healthy ways of working with Ancestors, and will lead Toltec breath and energy practice to support the healing of ancestral trauma and patterns that no longer serve us. This helps us to clear the patterns in our line that we don't want to carry forward, and to access the gifts that they share with us.

This workshop is part of a two session series taught by Brenda Salgado. Attendees are encouraged to register for one or all sessions in the series, as well as for other Contemplation by Design Summit sessions.  The first part of Brenda Salgado's series is on Oct. 29 and titled,
"Mindfulness, Indigenous Prophecy, and the Time of the Sixth Sun with Brenda Salgado"
