Our next book for the May Book Coven is Ancestral Medicine by Daniel Foor. They say that once you start planning a ritual, the ritual has already begun, and I think a similar notion may be applied with certain books such as this one. Once you decide to acquire and read it, the work has already begun – and the spirits are paying attention.
This book covers foundations of ancestor work, ancestral healing, ancestor contact, ancestors of place, funeral rites, and more. Each chapter has at least one exercise to integrate the information in your personal work. Our optional activity is to simply pick one of these exercises to do on our own, then share our experiences with it at the meet-up (if you feel comfortable doing so). If you are interested in participating please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you’d like to be added to the ongoing Book Coven mailing list, let me know and I’ll get that set up for you.
