HONORING OUR ANCESTORS
Special Guest: Doug Gomez
Residents: Antonio Ocasio and Ace House Nation
Hosted by: Joann Jimenez
Please bring an offering for “The Tree of Life”
Lower East Side Amphitheater at FDR Drive & Grand (Manhattan). Entrance on Cherry Street then walk over the pathway
What is an offering?
As you are reading this, you may have already thought of a friend or family member that has passed on. Think of something they liked. You can bring their photo or something that belonged to them, memorabilia, flowers, candles, fruits or other offerings. We welcome all religions and traditions to come and join in. The important thing is that the tree has the energy of everyone in attendance. As the day progresses, it becomes an ancestral altar. Whatever everyone contributes can be taken back when it’s your time to go.
What should I bring?
A positive attitude, an open mind, comfy clothes, a blanket, food / drink, children, elders, your pet is welcomed too – they will thank you.
If you have any questions or would like to make a contribution, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
