Online on October 24, 2020 from 4- 5:30 pm Eastern Time
Inspired by a traditional Dumb Supper, we will come together with our own delicious foods and share stories of those who came before.
We honor many types of ancestors, including those of our bloodlines and families, those of our spiritual traditions, and those who lived on the land before us. We invite you to consider how you might include foods your ancestors would have enjoyed in your meal, as well as setting a place at your table for them.
We will begin all together and then gather in small groups. We invite each participant to choose one ancestor to tell a story about. We’ll come back together at the end and close with a brief ritual piece honoring the dead.
A note on children: children and families are welcome at this event. We ask all participants to largely remain muted, which can be helpful for allowing families to participate! We will frankly discuss mortality and grief at this event and rely on parents’ best judgement about whether this is appropriate for their particular children.
The password, to this Zoom event, will be posted to the private Rites of Spring Facebook group, or you can request it by sending us an email at ESCTechHelp at gmail dot com no later than Friday, October 23.
We look forward to celebrating with you!
