Ancestral Memories & Medicine Stories: Myth-Making Practices for Cultural Healing
Velma E. Love, PhD, focuses on personal and cultural healing through meditative rituals for ancestral reverence, memory, repair and reconnection. She will share a teaching story from the Holy Odu, the sacred text in the Ifa tradition of the Yoruba people of West African origin, and talk about the importance of shape-shifting narratives to create space for the emergence of a liberating and healing spirituality. She will also provide case study reports from her ancestral lineage healing practice.
In this session, you'll discover:
- The value of ancestral healing work in re-scripting narratives for social transformation
- The four primary assumptions that undergird the ancestral medicine approach to lineage healing and repair
- The importance of ancestral knowledge in releasing one's genius in the world
