Honoring The Ancestors
November 2, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm MDTFree
As the Earth slips into a deep winter slumber (Northern Hemisphere), the veil between this world and the Spirit world thins and we honor those who have established the foundation whose shoulders we stand upon.
Join us for an hour or two as we break bread (or share cookies and treats) and celebrate our grandmothers/grandfathers, our great grand parents, aunts, uncles, etc.
This will be time of celebration with a little ceremony added in for good measure!
There will be a fire in the fir epit and we will be gathering in an out building (it will be heated) but I would suggest that you dress for a Minnesota November evening 🙂 (Bathrooms are inside the well heated house) And we will have warm cider to share.
What to bring:
–A treat to share–think comfort food 🙂
–your own cup/glass/mug for cider and/or water. We will have napkins for you to use but if you think you want/need a plate then bring your own —-we are trying to be environmentally friendly and have downsized significantly.-
–a camp chair/folding chair of some sort–there will be a few chairs already here.
–a keepsake of an ancestor that represents them—a picture/piece of jewelry, etc. We will share some stories with each other and honor those who you bring with you!
We will share food, do some storytelling, a bit of drumming (bring a drum or rattle if you have one, there will be a few to share) AND love and respect for honoring those who have come before us. Laughter, maybe a few tears and a lot of SMILES!! And hugs!!
After we have shared our stories and our beloved Ancestors with each other, there will a few minutes of sharing a new movement that is occurring…..Shamanism Without Borders. This group will gather at times when there is a trauma–earthquakes, floods, violence, car accidents and so on…We will gather and address those traumas on a spiritual level. All are invited to stay to hear more.
This will be an alcohol free event.
There is no need to RSVP Come if you are led to. Stay as long as you’d like—for sharing, treats, drumming, storytelling, etc. and leave as you need. Some of you might have a Halloween party to attend that evening….come for a bit and then head to your next event.
Hope to share with you!!
