The Work of an Elder
Elders all over the globe are the keepers of tradition — of that deep relationship with the living world and the Divine. The work they do is vital not only to their cultures but to ours. Empowered and initiated into their traditions, they ARE the bridge between the Ancient Wisdom we have forgotten and the lack of connection we all feel in the world today.
Our disconnect from Ancient Wisdom is the root of the emptiness, alienation, powerlessness, and lack of meaning that we feel in our lives. We have forgotten the original instructions that have guided lives and cultures for hundreds of thousands of years.
Removing this “spiritual amnesia” is the true work of an Elder. They oversee—and pass on—the rituals, traditions, and perspectives that open us to the reciprocal relationships that are always present. This awareness brings us a sense of adventure, mystery and purpose, and influences the integrity and connection of those around us.
