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.
