Ancestor Wisdom: Wounds, Gifts & Legacies
October 26 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDTFree
We all have ancestors who have wisdom to share. How do we locate our ancestors and build a practice of connecting with them regularly? What can our ancestors teach us: whether they died at the hands of capitalists or participated in the oppressive violence that ravaged the lives of so many? How do we address violent, oppressive legacies? How do we honor our ancestors? Join us to explore these questions and find ways to further connect with your ancestors on your own.

Julie Ann Rosier (aka Red Thread JAR) is a writer, performer, cultural organizer, and community archivist. In 2008, she launched Red Thread Commons — a company that uses story to reveal the invisible red thread of destiny that connects us all — in her hometown of Detroit. Born and raised a devout Catholic of French Canadian descent, she has since cobbled together queer faith practices that incorporate the following sacred texts: The Bible; Tao Te Ching, by Lao Tzu; Witches Tarot, by Ellen Dougan; Methodology of the Oppressed, by Chela Sandoval; and Of Water and Spirit, by Malidoma Some. She aspires to be a Black Sheep Shero to all of her niblings (her siblings’ kids) and to help those who have been estranged find a spiritual home.
