In many cultures, Autumn is the time of year when the veil between worlds is said to be thinnest. It is a time when you can connect with and remember your ancestors. In the spirit of Halloween, All Hallows Eve, I present Assembly of Ancestors, an embodied reminder of that connection. In the treatment room I use this as a spirit point when my patient is feeling disconnected to their past, their ancestors, the world, or their spiritual sense of self.
