“HONORING OUR ANCESTORS”
presented by WEPA NYC
Saturday, May 31, 2014 (1 - 8pm)
A day of celebration and gratitude for those who light our path and strengthen our souls. We pay homage through music, dancing, drumming and loving one another.
In these days of social media, it’s easy to lose touch with who we really are and our human connection. We are descendants of people who made sacrifices so that we could live a better life. Let’s keep their memory alive and share our heritage, especially with the children.
At the end, we are all ONE.
In tribute to our ancestors, we are encouraging wellness of body, mind and soul. We are looking for Yoga, Tai-Chi, Meditation, Nutrition, Dance, Zhumba, Stretching, Health Drinks, etc... Please contact us if you would like to participate.
Drum Circle begins at sunset... bring instruments, a blanket, elders, children, anything you'd like to share and an offering for "The Tree of Life". Pets are welcomed
