Event Description

The Queen Mothers of Manya Krobo Ghana asked me during a visit, “Is it true that in the United States, the farmer will put a seed in the ground and say no prayer, offer no song or dance, make no libation, and not even say thank you to the ground and expect the seed to grow? Well, that is why you are all sick.” Let us come together to learn how the Black agrarian tradition informs a relationship of consent, reciprocity, and deep listening with the sacred earth. In this workshop, we will explore specific spiritual tools for healing our relationship with the land, including ritual, song, and divination.
