Myths, Mystery & Folklore of the Caribbean ~ Karen Rose
In this evening of storytelling, we will explore the Myth, Mystery + Folklore of the Caribbean and the South, particularly the French Creole heritage, as connected with spiritual and physical healing. We will retell the stories that travelled with our ancestors from West Africa and melded into the landscape of our new home. Though our ancestors had to adapt outwardly to conform to their slave owner’s way of life, they continued to practice what they remembered throughout their captivity and verbally passed these stories on to new generations. I will share the stories of my grandmother, the remedies she offered for appeasing the spirits, as well as the herbs that I use within my practices, discovered through my spiritual maturity.
