Everyone has ancestors, whether you know their names and stories or not. Even if you don’t know your background, you can have happy, healthy relationships with your ancestors. Jezmina Von Thiele was raised within an ancestor tradition reflective of her mixed-Romani heritage, a culture with a deep love of ancestor veneration. While she will refer to her own cultural context at times, the class will present methods for honoring, communing, and communicating with ancestors of all types (human, animal, and plant) no matter your heritage. This class will also incorporate tarot as one of those tools to put you in closer contact with your beloved dead, and those who came before you. Bring your tarot deck to class, as well as a notebook and pen.
You will receive an emailed PDF after the class with notes, so note taking is encouraged if it’s helpful to you, but it’s optional.
Jezmina Von Thiele (she/they) is a mixed Romani-Sinti fortune teller, healer, writer, performer, educator, and activist. She reads tarot, palms, and tea leaves in her grandmother's Sinti-Romani tradition. The women on Jezmina's Sinti side of the family have been fortune tellers, healers, and dancers for many generations. (Roma are also known by the slur, "Gypsy," but it is not the preferred term, and it is requested that non-Roma do not use it.)
