Whispers from the Moon is proud to offer a special Honoring the Ancestors – Dia de los Muertos Workshop
The reality of losing the significant people in our lives can be a heartbreaking, life-changing, traumatic experience. Finding inspiration from other cultures can be a balm for the healing process. The indigenous and spiritual Mexican holiday of Dia de los muertos celebrates the balance between grief and joy, mourning and celebration, life and death.
How would it feel to connect with our loved ones, our ancestors, through joy and celebration? This Honoring the Ancestors workshop intends to bring this connection and celebrate the life cycle through the cultural holiday Dia de los muertos.
Durning this workshop we will
- Join in ancestral ceremony as we make a community ofrenda, or altar, to honor our ancestors through the Mexican tradition of Day of the Dead
- Discuss the history and symbolism behind this ancient tradition
- Create our own sugar skulls and Huichol yarn photo frames as a way to honor and connect with our loved ones and learn more about these indigenous art making traditions.
Whispers from the moon is offering 3 workshops to choose from this month.
