Ancestral Veneration: Honoring the Dead Across Cultures

Ancestor veneration is one of the oldest spiritual practices on the planet. Time honoured traditions of venerating and remembering those who have come before us, the dead and the long forgotten span across pre-colonial spiritual practices, seep into neo pseudo religious cult, saint followings and nearly every known culture across the globe. It is based on holding remembrance, love and deep respect for those in our blood line and inner circles.  In this talk we explore what it means to honour or venerate one’s ancestors. Past and present ancestral traditions including the building of altars, research into family genealogy and the excavation of spiritual practices previously suppressed. We will look into death rites and practices and how these can inform our own relationship to death and the already deceased.
