We live in a time where elders are seen as a burden on our health system and as expendable by society at large. This is not how we used to perceive elders in our community. Today’s show explores the value of elders.
Our guest today is Grandmother Ann Dickie. She is a grandmother, mother, and fabric artist. Ever since she was a child, she has known she was a spiritual being connected to all things. Over thirteen years ago, she began studying shamanism. During that time, she has done ceremonies with children aged five to twelve as well as participating in many personal ceremonies herself. She co-authored the book “The Magic Circle: Shamanic Ceremonies for the Child and the Child Within.
Join us for a conversation that explores questions around the value of elders in our society and what we can do to bring them to the fore.
