Many cultures throughout the world see this time of year as one to connect with our ancestors. On Sunday November 1, 2020 we invite you to practice flower watering of an ancestor of your choosing. Flower watering is a Buddhist practice of recognizing the beautiful qualities of a person and the positive energy they have transmitted to you.
To participate email us for the secure zoom link. We ask that you have present a representation/symbol of your chosen ancestor. The representation/symbol may be in the form of a picture or an item that reminds you of your ancestor (a paintbrush, a cup of soil, a clipping of your hair). We will each have time to share and participate in watering the flower of our ancestor.
“Breathing in, I see all my ancestors in me: my mineral ancestors, plant ancestors, mammal ancestors, and human ancestors. My ancestors are always present, alive in every cell of my body, and I play a part in their immortality.”
