Limited Capacity seats available

In the African Yoruba Orisa tradition, ancestors are the foundation of all things. They are the link between what is seen and not seen on the earth plane. You can talk to them and ask for their help and guidance when you need it.Known my many names Ancestor Sticks are used when calling on the energy of the ancestors to stand with us in the work that we do. Decorated with fabric or ribbon of nine colors representing the ritual number 9 of completion and in some cultures death. In this workshop participants will honor the tradition of pounding for the ancestors by decorating their own Sticks. Each participant should bring 1 piece of fruit. A picture of Ancestor-No one in the picture should be alive or an object to represent them if a picture is not available. An open mind and heart. Linking our present work of activism and inviting our ancestors to stand with us in this work is the purpose of this workshop
