The ‘Rituals for Living’ vignette is a short segment taken from the upcoming documentary, Ancestral Voices 2 which explores African Spirituality as a singular system with modified localized expressions but all informed by the same principles and philosophies and can be evidenced as a continuum from the time of the Ancient Black Egyptians to the present.
Some of the areas covered include the African conception of the Creator or God, the Divinities or Natural Forces, Divination systems, Ancestral Reverence and different forms of African Prayers and Ritual Practices. The funds raised from the vignette will go towards completing the full film.
“This short Vignette gives you a plethora of tangible things you can physically do in your everyday life. It combines and shows A synergy of different indigenous African belief principles and systems from initiates all over the world from different parts of the African continent to various parts of diaspora where African people where forcefully taken. This whole documentary series is essential for anyone of African descent who wants to connect with the psychology of indigenous ancient Africa. You may also find the whole process physically and psychologically therapeutic. Or just for anyone who truly loves mother earth.”
