Nourishing Parents

an Equinox Ritual for
Renewal and Reconnection

March 20th, 2022
90 min/ 2:30pm EDT • 19:30 CET • 07:30 NZDT (+1)

Receiving ancestors through the love and care of children.


Our Invitation

Parents, educators, and anyone who loves and cares for children are invited to join for a free, public ritual this Equinox. Amidst the many current challenges, ancestors continue returning to Earth as their precious and demanding little selves. How well we receive them is a daily test of our character and an opportunity to nurture the world to come.

Our intention is to hold a nourishing space that celebrates your service and helps you to directly access even greater support. We honor that there are myriad ways to participate in the dynamics of parenting and care for children more generally.

People of all backgrounds and life experiences are warmly welcome to join. Children are warmly welcome too, and the focus will be primarily on the adults present. This offering aims to be inclusive with respect to ancestry, gender, geography, and diverse kinds of families.

The Equinox Ritual

In our shared time Daniel and three co-leaders (bios below) will weave 90 minutes of teaching, song, prayer, and experiential practice with the ancestors and supportive powers.

There’s no expectation to participate by voice or video, and the recording will be shared afterward with all those who sign up. Our time will be resourced by others in the Ancestral Medicine Practitioner Network.
