Be It Ever So Humble
A dialogue at the threshold of Family, Ancestors, Culture and Home
Be It Ever So Humble will introduce you to Archologie which is the active practice of remembering the family of origin, the ancestors, and the tribe, and the ways in which they created home and safety. Archologie becomes an active practice with the use of gestalt experiments, which allow us to give a voice to those not present as well as to inanimate objects and spaces. Archologie also uses guided visualizations and walking dreams to allow us to revisit or visit for the first time the homes of our ancestors to sense and feel how they created home. Upon returning from this journey, we have a heightened sense of our origins and therefore who we are. From this place we can make informed decisions about our homes. I underscore the words informed decisions as opposed to change, because the objective is to become conscious of the influences that act upon us, not necessarily to change them. From this point of view, history has a vote not a veto.
