“Without realizing it, we often carry the ancestors on our backs; their memory patterns deeply embedded within our vital tissues and cells.
We continually re-enact patterns that originate in the history and memory of our family lines. When we do not recognize ancestral traumas we are likely to ferry them into every aspect of our lives.” - Maya Tiwari
In the Vedic tradition, tarpana is the practice of honoring one’s ancestors who have passed. We connect to generations past by expressing gratitude for their gifts, working through resentment or grief, and making offerings of forgiveness and love.
By honoring our ancestors, we are able release their pain and move forward in our own lives in peace and freedom.
Please bring photographs of family members with whom you would like to connect, a small gift to offer them (such as a favorite food or object), paper/notebook, and a pen.
