About the Event
9-11!!! Who do you need to call on when facing emergencies and life challenges? Your Ancestors!!! This 2hour workshop class gathering is to discuss and explain the purpose of having an Ancestor altar. You will learn the importance of Ancestral reverance. You will learn how to create and setup your personal Ancestor Altar Space. You will learn how your Ancestors are indeed your allies wanting to connect with you on this Earthly plane from the spirit realm. It is African and Indigenous culture and tradition to be in constant communication with the Ancestors. When Native people and land were stolen, the people were threatened with death and other harsh realities if they held firm to their way of life. So the elders used oral tradition to keep the culture alive. Our people still honored the Ancestors in secrecy to avoid prosecution. The conquerors were afraid of the power that we invoked when we tuned in to our Ancestors. They did not understand our way of life and accused us of practicing witchcraft, being ungodly, and heathens. They had witch hunts to kill the healers of the villages. Hunting the so called witches and warlocks, the magicians, and intuitive ones. With the shift that is occurring on the planet, it is vital to tap into our spiritual systems. I Am my Ancestors’ child. Their way of life has been reignited in me. They have given me this mission to share and provide the tools to help others reconnect with their Ancestors. A range of relevant topics will be covered and discussed to assist with creating sacred space for your Ancestor altar. You will know how to acknowledge their presence, honor them and interconnect them in your life. This class is specifically for melanated peoples. I will begin libations promptly at 1:11pm.
