Event description
Explore the spiritual tradition of ancestor medicine and how you might benefit from exploring your lineage.

About this event

We all have ancestors that can give us support, guidance and healing. But few modern or religious traditions outline ways to come into conscious connection with those who have come before us.

In this experiential exploration, Lucumi priestess Yaromil Fong-Olivares will explain how her tradition utilizes rituals to connect with blood-related ancestors, spiritual ancestors, as well as spirit guides going back thousands of years. She’ll may also guide us in some simple exercises aimed at helping us to connect with ancestral energies, plus lead a discussion on the role of ancestral energies in our lives.

"In the Lucumi spiritual tradition every ritual begins with honoring those that have came before us. Ancestral energies are composed of our blood-related ancestors, and spiritual ancestors as well as spirit guides going back thousands of years. In the sacred language of Lucumi we group these energies together and refer to them as eggun, " Fong-Olivares explains

"Eggun protect us from harm and guide us to our highest purpose. In turn we honor them with prayers, offerings such as sweets, libations and flowers but most importantly we honor them by listening to their messages; these messages come in the form of dreams and our intuition. In this way, our relationship with Eggun is interdependent and serves as the bridge between us and our sacred unique path toward developing as a human being and as we connect with Lucumi deities known as Orishas."

Organizer Sacred Inclusion Network

Organizer of Our Ancestors, Our Selves

The Sacred Inclusion Network is a network of people who, as one of your members put it, "act from the knowledge that our spirit is connected to all life, all people, all time, all dimensions."

Our foundational principles are embedded in our former name, the Diversity and Spirituality Network. True to our roots, we honor all expressions of the sacred without discrimination, with a bias towards accepting as truth what was best expressed by Sting's The Police, back in the day: "We Are Spirits/In the Material World."
