Date: Saturday, 9/11/2021

Time: 2-5pm ET, meeting at 1:45am

Location: Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, NY

Since its beginning, every session of SES has begun with three honorings: honoring native land, honoring Asian lineages, & honoring ancestors. For the past few months, we have been exploring these three honorings as foundations for sacred earth awakening. In April, we explored honoring the Asian lineages of our practice. In May, we gathered in Central Park to explore honoring Native Land.

What does it mean to honor ancestors? Join us in September as we cultivate relationships with our personal genealogical ancestors as well as practice reflections and meditations that touch the truth of the whole of nature as “all my relations.”

We look forward to exploring our inner and outer world together with you in nature.
