This November, we’re peeling back the layers of time, unmasking its true essence. From vibrant harvest celebrations and rituals grounded in ancestral wisdom, we work to dismantle the modern, distorted history of “Thanksgiving.”
The true narrative of November – centered around harvest rites and spirit exchanges – is far more enriching than the modern, damaging “Thanksgiving” tale. Demand authenticity, honor our ancestors, and immerse yourself in the deep wisdom they offer. Let’s celebrate the true spirit of November.
Below is a collection of lovingly curated resources that beckon you to come, learn, and celebrate.
Rather than just handing you knowledge, I invite you to look within yourself and explore the possibility of authentically celebrating this season.
