WELCOME TO

ANCESTRAL EROTIC

A place to awaken the senses, ignite the body, and touch the origins

Ancestral Erotic is an initiative and a mission to connect the dots between what we feel in our bodies, what we carry from our lineages, and what wants to be transformed in ourselves and the world around us. Through the power of elemental ritual and intergenerational healing, we seek to eroticize our past by bringing tenderness, intimacy, and reconciliation to the unresolved ancestral conflicts that we carry, shaping the way we make love with our partners and with our lives.

We recognize that the body itself is ancestral erotic – that we carry the wisdom of our ancestors in our bones, and that we would not have come into this world were it not for the continuity of erotic passion across the generations. We learn to meet this body – with all the echoes and reverberations from the past that speak through it – as our ritual container, containing all the magic that ever was or ever will be. And we learn to evoke that magic, transforming the dead-weight of shame, guilt, blame, and confusion into the living power of playfulness, clarity, radiant joy, and inter-dimensionality.

Do you...

Seek to understand your life (& purpose) in the context of your lineage and ancestry?

Feel comfortable in the realm of the mind and goal-setting, but want depth in your spiritual practices?

Hear “we’re all one” but aren't sure what that actually means?

See the benefit of connecting with your dream landscape and integrating the unconscious with your conscious?

Intuitively feel drawn to the elements and want to deepen those relationships?

Look for ways to integrate of the work you’ve already done?

Then, your indigenosity may be calling you.

Your roots and the stories in your bones are asking to break through.

WE, AT ANCESTRAL EROTIC, ARE EXCITED TO INTRODUCE:

THE ELEMENTS OF INTIMACY

AN 8-WEEK PROGRAM

We believe the elements offer a personalized path to inner harmony.

In this 8-week immersive journey, we will guide you to deepen your relationship with your ancestors and the elements, learn how to address imbalances, and create impactful rituals for healing and transformation.

In future courses, we will build on this foundation and dive deeper into our Ancestry, Purpose, Radical Ritual, & Erotic Spirituality.

Drawing from the West African cosmology we study, we will work with each of the 5 elements below.

Week by week, we will color our interior spiritual landscapes through discussion, rituals, dreams, and sharing in community.

Fire

Water

Earth

Mineral

Nature

Ultimately, this course is about opening up your aperture to the sacred.

When you begin to discover that the psyche can be nurtured through communion with the natural world around you, you’ll touch a newfound sense of intimacy with yourself, others, and the flame of life which connects all sentient beings together.

WElcome!


WHAT IS INCLUDED?

4 LIVE sessions

We will meet every other week, with rituals for you to practice in-between sessions. Two sessions will be offered in-person in Topanga, CA (with a live-stream option available), & the other two sessions will be offered via Zoom. Each session is bespoke, based on the elements as well as your dreams and experiences.

Rituals by

the Element

Each week, we will invite you to work with and focus on one or two elements. You can, of course, continue working with all of them at any time. We will share with you radical and daily rituals (as well as tailor your ritual experience based on your needs).

Dream Journaling

We will invite you to begin and/or develop your dream landscape. Psychic rebalances according to the elements can often invite us into more exploration through our dreams and we will ask you to develop (& share about) this practice throughout this course.

Sharing Forum

If you are supported by writing, we will provide an online forum to digest your experiences. This is entirely for your benefit and for the benefit of the community, and can be used as a diary for your dialogue with the elements, your Ancestors, and your unconscious.

Community Support

 Although Ancestral and Elemental work is a deeply personal journey, we will benefit from coming together to debrief our rituals, dreams, and intuitions.


ADDITIONAL Resources

You’ll find that you may want to go deeper in your relationship with a certain or several element(s). We are here to give you whatever guidance and support you may need to dive deeper - whether that be books, articles, videos, or additional rituals.

AN 8-WEEK GUIDED JOURNEY INTO THE ELEMENTS, IN COMMUNITY

HOW WILL YOU BENEFIT from working with the elements?

Understanding Who You Are

You’ll begin to re-member a larger, more empowering context to your life, one that has “things makes sense”. Like Simba who looks into the water and sees the reflection of his father, the Lion King, you’ll discover meaning by reaching up into your ancestry line and the stories you come from.

Healing the Lineage

By cultivating the ability to regulate with the natural world, you’ll have constant access to healing energies. You’ll create a circuit between you and universe around you. By understanding what’s out of balance, you can restore not just yourself but the energy of the family line, too.

Powerful Story-Telling

With a foundation of both understanding and claiming your role as a lineage healer, you quite literally begin to re-write the story for past and future generations. You break cycles of trauma and re-establish the continuation of your family’s magic. You become the Ancestor you want to be.

"When the ancient is caught up to the present, it is no longer ancient. It is NOW."

Elder Malidoma Somé

2024 is a Mineral Year

In the West African (Dagara) cosmology we work with, 2024 is a Mineral Year. This means, it's a year of re-membering your story, connecting your gifts to your community, ownership, and of being seen. Individually and collectively, we are being asked to offer our gifts in their most authentic version yet.

To kickstart your Elemental journey powerfully, we strongly suggest you include a divination with your journey if you've never received one or it's been more than 6 months since your last one.

“There is a world beyond ours, a world

that is far away, nearby, and invisible.”

– María Sabina, Mexican Curandera

ABOUT CAMERON

Cameron has devoted his life to pursuing depth and ancient wisdom. He spent nine years studying with the ninjas of the Togakure-ryu lineage, eventually earning a teaching license from the
grandmaster in Japan; spent seven years studying erotic spirituality full time; wrote a thesis on the archetypal feminine in the Medieval Western and Iranian alchemical traditions; and undertook a deep study of West African ritual and divination with Elder Malidoma Somé, traveling to Burkina Faso to study with the shamans of his village and becoming a certified diviner in his Dagara tradition.

Today he lives and works as a writer in the beautiful nature of Topanga, CA.

Indigenous wisdom invites us to view disharmony energetically.

From this view, the solution is always elemental.

THIS COULD BE YOU...

The Elements of Intimacy was a deeply profound immersion into the depths of my roots and lineage that was healing on a level beyond what I have experienced in therapeutic or experiential settings, in a way that is almost impossible to put into words. Vicky and Cameron present and introduce each element with beautiful clarity and depth as they share how to practically engage with the wisdom of these elements through weekly rituals that were both enlightening and self empowering.

- CHRISTINE, CALIFORNIA

This course has also sparked a desire to work more with my intuition. I can hear my intuition much more now than I could before. It's like this intelligence has awakened in me that I get to connect to through the rituals, my ancestors, and my dreams. I LOVE how all it all connects so beautifully.

- NINA, CALIFORNIA

I uncovered nuggets of wisdom from this course and its facilitators that continue to pop up and serve me after it ended. The expansion into ancestry work, rituals and the use of the elements proved to be a creativity merging of complementary pieces and served my spirit in new and unexpected ways.

- JANE, NORTH CAROLINA

THE TRANSFORMATION IN THIS COURSE HAPPENS IN THE MEDIAL, IN THE SPACE BETWEEN, IN THE DEPTHS OF PSYCHE, IN THE REALM OF THE SOUL. SEE TO GET QUIET ENOUGH AND YOU WILL FIND IN YOU AN INTERIOR WORLD YOU THOUGHT WAS ONLY POSSIBLE IN THE MOVIES.

PAST CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

I feel so much more open hearted. I also learned about codependent and anxious patterns I had, patterns of putting other's needs before my own, and learned the root of that and how to create that for myself. I loved the way she helped me find all of my needs within myself, and supported me when I saw how these patterns that kept me from getting my needs were familial and ancestral.

- JENNY, Alabama

I became so much more solid in my sense of self, trust, and confidence. I began to create art from my core. I created my own business from my warmest desires. The trajectory of my life has changed after graduating from a period of rigidity, shame, and striving. My favorite thing I gained is this new perspective on my life: If I desire it, I am meant to have it. This has fostered so much self trust and space for me to experience and play in this life.

- LAYNE, Los Angeles, CA

During our time together I was able to connect to my own power and self expression in a way that hadn't yet been accessible to me. She saw possibility where I couldn't and helped me get honest and vulnerable about my vision, dreams and what I want to create with a soulfulness, tenderness and humanity that I cherish. Her partnership is something I will carry with me forever.

- SOPHIE, Los Angeles, CA

There is a saying –

that when a modern person is placed in an indigenous environment, their Spirit thrives.


But, when the indigenous person is placed in a modern context, their Spirit longs for the indigenous.

The Elements of Intimacy is a portal to this indigenous context.

QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE:

Who is The Elements of

Intimacy for?

Anyone with calling to go deeper into themselves and into the natural world around them. If you feel hesitant or uncertain, that is completely normal. This guided introductory journey will help soften your conditioning and elevate your relationship with life.

What if I already have a relationship to the elements? 

As with any relationship, you can always continue to cultivate it over time. The more you engage with each element, the more you will learn about yourself, your lineage, and the nature of life itself.

If I’ve received a divination before,

will this help me?

Absolutely. A divination is the secret sauce of elemental work. If you haven't received a divination before, or if it's been more than six months since your last one, we strongly recommend you select the divination option below when you enroll in this course.

What if I don't live

near nature?

Those living far from nature will benefit greatly from this course. We will provide adjustments to rituals so anyone can participate. Regardless of where you live, deepening your relationship to the elements will awaken your inner healer.

Can I take The Elements of Intimacy along with other programs?

Yes, of course. In fact, elemental orientation will help integrate and anchor in any other work you may be doing.

WE INVITE YOU TO OPEN YOUR SENSES with us in 2024.

Ancestral Erotic℠ is an initiative and a mission to connect the dots between what we feel in our bodies, what we carry from our lineages, and what wants to be transformed in ourselves and the world around us. Through the power of elemental ritual and intergenerational healing, we seek to eroticize our past by bringing tenderness, intimacy, and reconciliation to the unresolved ancestral conflicts that we carry, shaping the way we make love with our lives, and thereby our partners.

We recognize that the body itself is Ancestral Erotic. We carry the wisdom of our ancestors in our bones and we would not have come into this world were it not for the continuity of the spark that is life across the generations. We learn to meet this body – with all the echoes and reverberations from the past that speak through it – as our ritual container, containing all the magic that ever was or ever will be. And we learn to evoke that magic, transforming the dead-weight of shame, guilt, blame, and confusion into the living power of playfulness, clarity, radiant joy, and inter-dimensionality.

Let's Check In On a Few Of Your Elements

How's your Earth?

Life serves heaviness, and you take it on. From there, you can’t be a part of the solution. You experience anxiety and agitation. By the same token, you may feel ungrounded which could range from clumsiness and falling to more scary things like car accidents.

How About Your Water?

Maybe your sense of self is watery and you tend towards codependent tendencies. You lack the boundaries that would actually increase the level of authentic connection in your life. Or, you may feel like an endless pit of grief that were you to actually touch, it would consume you. 

And Your Fire?

You feel dull, numb, and lethargic inside. You drink strong coffee to feel creative, but really, you know it’s a compensation for a lack of creative fire and inspiration. You alternate between tired and wired. Deep inside, you crave access to the inner erotic fire and passion for life.
