Tea and Cookies with the Ancestors with Sophia Shultz
The ancient Egyptians believed that the ka’s of their deceased required physical nourishment. While they usually included offering tablets or paintings of offerings on tomb walls, some actually paid individuals to bring food to the tomb. On special occasions the family of the deceased might even dine at the tomb. We will remember our ancestors, write their names, and keep them near us as we enjoy tea and cookies (source TBD). While we have our refreshments we will talk about our ancestors and their impact on our lives. Sounds terribly dry, but we did it last weekend at Stones Rising and it was very moving.
