Celebrating those before us – Life in death As we are facing the “dark” side of the year, let us honor those who have lived before us: Our ancestors of the land, ancestors of blood (relatives) and ancestors in spirit and let us all together celebrate this magical time of the year! We are going to set up a huge spiral in the room. After our celebrants have set the space, called in the elements and opened the gates to the west, everyone will be able to walk this spiral while our musicians will drum for you. In the middle of the spiral, there is going to be an altar on which you can light a tealight candle to honor a relative, a teacher or lector, a friend who has passed.
If you wish to join the shamanic drumming while everyone walks the spiral one by one, you are invited to bring drums, flutes or rattles. Let us all raise energy and celebrate the living and dead. You will also be able to leave little offerings at the altar if you wish to.
