The Audience with the Ancestors ritual will be offered for the first time simultaneously in three locations- Southern at Georgetown, Delaware – Northern at Fort Washington , PA and Northern New Jersey in Bergen County. This ritual has been presented at Free Spirit Gathering and annually at Seelie Court since its first writing by our Elder,Ivo Dominguez, Jr. Its first use was at Samhain of 1985 by Keepers of the Holly Chalice, the first coven of the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel.
About the Ritual:
For the duration of the ritual, the land is given over to the Mighty Dead and Ancestors and each participant has opportunity to personally reconnect and gain insight from their chosen ancestor. The Gates and space of this interaction are cast and warded by priestesses of the Tradition. This very moving and powerful ritual has been part of our Tradition’s community offerings and we are excited to be hosting this event in our Tri-State area.
