The Art of Ancestor Veneration: Daily Rites, Rituals, and Devotional Acts to Honor Your Ancestor Spirits
Ancestor veneration is a practice of sharing love and respect with those who have passed on. It uplifts the remembrance of their love, sacrifices, and lessons, and ensures their continued wellbeing. Our ancestors can assist us in creating a beautiful life — if we know how to honor them. Charlotte Nguyễn provides a Buddhist lens that will guide you in developing your own ancestral veneration practice including altar work, rituals and practical yet meaningful ways to remember and celebrate the ancestors.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- Simple practices and rituals to develop a veneration practice that's uplifting and affirming for you
- Ideas and inspiration to remember and celebrate your ancestors year-round
- How to receive the benefits that come from veneration, including making petitions and offerings
