Tending the ancestors has become a lost art and practice for many of us. Re-igniting the ancestral flame can bring healing, blessings and resolution to our lives and to the lives of family members. Our ancestors are also are strongest connection to the spiritual knowledge that is our birthright and they are our fiercest allies and protectors. A Season With The Ancestors is designed to give you a solid foundational knowledge of ancestral tending and reverence that you can return to seasonally or incorporate as part of your daily spiritual practice (and it's also fun!).
