Ancestral Altar Cloth Weaving


Our ancestors are more connected to us than we may think, and they play an important role in what we are handed down  from family member to family member, both the good and the bad.


Many of us however have lost sight of who our ancestors were, and how we might be connected to them.
As a weaver and ancestral healer, I would say, that the fabric of our ancestral legacy has holes that need reparing, or re-weaving as it were...


This workshop is an opportunity to sit in a safe container and explore not only your connection to your ancestors, but to begin the repair and weaving work of re-connecting once again.



In this week-end workshop we will:

~Participents will weave their own unique Ancestral Altar Cloth.

~We will open the weekend in ceremony whereby each participent will be invited to connect in journey with a healing ancestor.

~Together as a group we will engange in an ancestral offering ceremony, whereby we invite in these safe and loving ancestors to support us in our weaving work.

~Participents will have the opportunity to sit with a full colour palatte and choose a spectrum of colours and textures that carry meaning for them and their ancestors that they will being into the weaving, including any fabrics or items they may have brought from home with them.


Practical Details:

~ Paeticipents will be using Rigid Heddle looks to create their altar cloths and I will be teaching the basics of warping and weaving on one of these looms.

~I will provide all of the yarn unless participents wish to bring some of their own from home

~This workshop is only open to 6 participents, as I wish to create a tight and safe container for our work.



When we have an ancestor from our past that needs healing they hang on energetically to our family line causing us to have a harder time letting go of things that no longer serve us, and leaving us with feelings like we are stuck, or we may notice that we repeat the same patterns over and over, knowing that this is causing us pain, but feeling like there is no way out.

I have come to understand that ancestral healing is extremely beneficial for most people because when we release and heal these ancestral patterns and collapse them, any blockages we have in our lives clear and heal, and this in turn clears the way for our children and future descendants.

Nikiah is very experienced and skilled in many types of spirit work and I have had the privilege to work with her many times over the years. Doing ancestral healing work with her was life changing for me and was essential to my process.

Despite years of effort, I felt blocked in an area of my life. Ancestral healing explained what was happening and helped resolve some key family lineage issues and patterns. And just 3 weeks after the session I started noticing big changes right away.

And now, a year later, everything is different! I feel relieved that I am no longer struggling with that issue and I would absolutely do ancestral healing again. I’m so grateful to Nikiah for her deep caring, generosity, expertise, and most of all her compassion, strength, clarity, and perseverance when dealing with challenging ancestral situations. I trust her integrity and am grateful to have her in my life. I highly recommend her and recommend ancestral healing.

Nikiah’s guidance has been paramount for me in the ancestral healing work that I’ve sought to explore and integrate over the last few years. Her kind, loving, wise, and practiced approach allowed me to unlock and deepen connections with well ancestors, and honour those who needed care in their life, and now. These connections have provided me and my family with relational healing and a deepening of our ancestry. An experience of support that I highly recommend.



The journey work I'm learning with Nikiah is like the cheesecake after a long time without have had it...nourishing, divine, delicious!  Always challenging, this work brings a lot of joy into my life and helps me sort through daily life's ups and downs on another paradigm.

Nikiah holds a very powerful and high integrity space in all of her offerings. I have had the great gift of receiving ancestral healing from Nikiah- it has been life changing in all the ways that I didn't believe possible. She is also true artist. The custom 'storytellers shawl' she channeled for me is one of my most prized possessions. It truly came through her from the Spirit Realm and holds countless threads of magic.

What does an ancestral healing session look like?

At this time all sessions are via Zoom.

We will begin by taking some time to get to know one another and I will ask you a series of questions as I seek to get to know your ancestral lineage better.

If you were adopted I am still able to do this work, not to worry.

When we do an ancestral healing, I journey with the aid of my guides and seek to discover where these ancestral patterns are occurring in your family line and where healing is needed.

Working with my guides we track to find the cause of the original ancestor and the pattern that has become pervasive in your family line, and together we then work together to make sure that this ancestor who had not crossed over go to the collective of ancestors on the other side and then collapse this pattern, taking it down through all generations, backwards and forward to yourself and your descendants, creating healing, and stopping the negative pattern.

After the work has been done there is often a ritual or ceremony that is required for the completion of the work, and this piece is an important aspect of the healing, as we take responsibility for our ancestors and work to heal them.

For some it can be helpful to continue the work as they wish to deepen their understanding of working with helping ancestors and possibly moving into lineage clearing, in which case a four hour session might be the best choice.
