Our Ancestral Ties to Plants

Through intentional and reciprocal cultivation and respectful relationship with these diverse and multi-dimensional allies, humans have been able to access the masterful and mysterious healing miracles and deep wisdom afforded by these highly intelligent ancestors, towards greater alignment with our own authentic purpose, greater wholeness, peace, and balance with the natural order of the universe that ensures and sustains all life.  

This wisdom of “plants as ancestors” is practiced and tended by Indigenous and traditional peoples from all over the globe, rooted in and passed down by the original ways of our ancestors. 

Join our Plantcestor Series, where we explore these interconnections between humans and the plant kingdom. Inviting us to cultivate an intimate and reciprocal relationship with them. 

Relationship Reclamation to Death 

Throughout history, life and death, have found a space for contemplation in the human experience. Both experiences have been the object of inspiration, amazement or fear, but also a turning point to relate and understand the world around us.

Death is something that has been and is very present in the lives of human beings.

It has been a topic that has worried or been in contemplation of humans since the beginning of our time.  This contemplation and experience is something we all share cross culturally. 

 Like many of my teachers say, we are spiritual beings living an earthly experience. And death is a phenomenon that every person, and living being experiences, therefore we must look at how Life and Death are mirrored in relation with each other. 

Join our monthly anthropological death gatherings or our annual Reimagining Death Cohort, where we communialy bring awareness to this relationship. 

Ancestral Wisdom Transference 

It is a time of great Revelation where we are being asked to sit and listen closely to the signs of Life, to the intelligence of plants, and most of all to our teachers and elders who have walked this earth before us. 

This wisdom transference of elders is practiced and tended by earth based cultures around the world as a means to survival and kinship. Our Inheritance comes from the wisdom of our lineage. 

Passages conducts Life story Interviews for elders and communities who are asking to harness wisdom, stories, and legacy for the future generations.  

In the same breath, we want to bring opportunities for the community to hear from wisdom keepers- join us in the annual cohorts that explores Rites of Passage, or our monthly talks with guest Curanderas from Mexico and Guatemala.
