My article, “Reciprocity and Compassion in Ancestor Work,” was published in the Fall 2018 issue (#117) of The Troth’s magazine, Idunna: A Journal of Northern Tradition.
In this personal narrative, I discuss some of the challenges and learning experiences that have come with ancestral spirit work. Here’s an excerpt:
I started intuitively, as many do. Dreaming of my beloved paternal Grandma, always with a matter-of-fact acknowledgment: “But Grandma… you died.”
“I know,” she’d say, “but I want to visit you.”
If you’re not a member of the Troth, contact email@example.com directly to inquire about purchasing a PDF ($3) or hard copy ($6) of the issue. Back issues of the magazine are also available after a year on their Lulu website.
