Celebrating Ancestral Wisdom: 2012 Conference of the Earth Medicine Alliance
This October 20th-21st we invite you to join over 15 ceremonial leaders and teachers of diverse Earth-honoring backgrounds for a full weekend of embodied learning, interfaith dialogue, and co-creative ritual around the theme of celebrating ancestral wisdom.
On Saturday we'll gather from 9:30am to 6:00pm at the Unitarian Center in San Francisco for a day of teachings, ceremony, and interfaith dialogue.
On Sunday participants are invited to join in earth-honoring rituals co-led by conference presenters at one of five locations in and around the City. Join Luisah Teish, Ohlone elders, and teachers of different indigenous traditons in co-creating concurrent rituals as a collective offering and prayer for the well being of the ancestors, the land and waters here in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Registration is $90, and we welcome you to bring a friend for FREE. We aim to host a conference that is spiritually nourishing, heart-centered, and welcoming for people of all backgrounds and traditions (or lack thereof). We also have reserved seats at a discount for volunteers who can give support before the conference and arrive early on the day of. We're looking forward to a nourishing weekend and we hope you can join us!
