Episode One: Ancestors & Animists - An Interview with Daniel Foor
Working with the Dead as Social Justice Allies
Greetings all. Joining me today is Dr. Daniel Foor: Accomplished ritualist, teacher, initiate and practitioner of Ifa/Orisha Animist traditions of Yoruba-speaking West Africa. He's also the author of the brilliant book Ancestral Healing: Rituals for Personal and Family Healing. After many years in San Francisco, Daniel, his wife, and their new baby girl have settled in Asheville, North Carolina, from where he has been training apprentices into practical ritual-healing work that centres on ancestors and the dead. In addition to the ongoing apprentice trainings, Daniel is currently launching a unique online Animism course, where students from around the world will gather, practice, and discuss online the teachings that Daniel shares via video on a wide range of topics related to Animism and Animist ethics and protocols regarding the non-human realms of existence.
