To forget one’s ancestors is to be a brook without a source, a tree without a root. -Chinese Proverb
We arrived here on the shoulders of our ancestors, is the ancient wisdom commonly shared.
None of us truly lives in isolation, even if we feel like it at times. Ancestor Veneration has been happening from the earliest times, across many cultures and spiritual traditions, but how do we go about establishing a modern ancestor practice today?
Join Winifred Costello for an inspiring and interactive workshop to learn how to get started building an ancestor practice that will be transformative, healing and mutually beneficial to you and your Beloved Dead.
Winifred will draw from her many years of experience in ancestor veneration as a Pagan, Witch and Seer known as working the “River of Blood” to share the following teachings:
What is an Ancestor Practice and how do you begin your own
How to build your ancestral altar (we will build one together in class including basic offerings)
Who are your Beloved Dead (also known as Exalted Ancestors) and who are not
How to get started building a positive relationship with your Beloved Dead
What to do with those ancestors lurking in the blood line that were not so great when they were alive and how to set up healthy, protective boundaries
What to do if don’t know who your ancestors are
Offerings for your Beloved Dead
If you want to begin an Ancestral Practice but are not sure how to go about it, this class will empower you to get started building an interactive practice that will open the door to mutual healing and blessings.
*Please bring with you a notebook and pen. If you have a photograph of a Beloved Ancestor you would like to place temporarily on the altar we will build during the workshop, please bring it with you. It is important that the photograph has only those who have crossed over in it and not include any living persons.
All levels of experience are welcome!
