We will be ancestors

Ever since this past Samhain season, I’ve kept tripping over information about ancestor worship, working with ancestors, ancestor shrines… These things have never been a part of my personal practice and I still don’t feel called to them now, or, at least, not in the ways I’ve seen them done. There’s nothing wrong with those ways; just not my thing. But I do see the power of acknowledging where we come from.


I have two urges: To go very far back and to go very far forward.


I want to go back to the ancestors of modern homo sapiens – Mitochondrial Eve and Y-Adam – and honour our deepest origins and our beautiful shared humanity.


And I want to go forward and explore what it means to be the ancestors of the future, worthy of being honoured.
