Walking the Path of the Ancestors: Honouring Tradition and Legacy
Indigenous teachings from both the North and the South speak of the importance of “walking in a good way.” Jhaimy Alvarez-Acosta discusses how this teaching provides us with a map from the ancestors and the generations who came before us and can support us in finding our space in humanity that is grounded in Mother Earth, and connected to the cosmos. With reverence for ourselves, for each other, and for all living beings, we find our path towards “Sumaq Causay” and to a greater sense of peace and purpose in our lives.
In this session, you’ll discover:
- A deeper understanding of the Andean principle of Sumaq Causay — living in a good way with all of existence
- How to connect and have reverence for the traditions and legacy that the ancestors have gifted to humanity
- Practical tools that you can implement into your daily practice to help ground ourselves to Mother Earth and the Cosmos
