Communing with the Ancestors
Communing with the Ancestors demonstrates how to communicate and make contact with ancestral spirits, including practical methods for seeking their guidance. Raven Grimassi explores the realm of the ancestors and the role of reincarnation in the soul’s relationship to ancestral lineage. He explains the interactions between ancestors, the living, and the dead and examines how communication with the ancestors is strengthened through various techniques and ritual practices.
True to Raven’s style, Communing with the Ancestors includes folklore, legend, and superstition surrounding the topic. Shrines, altars, and offerings are discussed in detail. Ancient practices related to communing with the ancestors are revived, and new rituals are provided, including an exercise to lead readers into the “cavern of the ancestors” through guided imagery. Sacred sites, power places, special portals to the ancients, reincarnation, and the “restless dead who are still bound to the earth realm”—he covers it all.
