Ancestral Voices 2 (Film)

Spirit is Eternal

£43 ($57)





Ancestral Voices: Spirit is Eternal
Filmed over 3 continents and housed in the libraries of renowned higher educational institutions such as Harvard (US), Oxford (UK), Cambridge (UK) and School of Oriental & African Studies (SOAS -UK), this educational documentary remains the most comprehensive to date in exploring the breath and depth of African Indigenous Spiritual systems.
Connecting ancient to contemporary Africa and the Diaspora, it is the first to correlate and expound on the shared philosophies and practices across systems, proving them to be of a common source.
It is a systemic exploration of African spiritual cosmologies, philosophies and practices across millennia from the ancient Black Egyptians to contemporary times continentally and its legacy in the Diaspora, in systems such as Haitian Vodou and Brazilian Candomble.
It highlights the depth of commonality between them and proves they are but different branches of the same tree, that is, they share a common origin and are in essence, the same.
Topics covered include the African conception of the Creator/‘God’, Nature and the Natural Forces, nature of humanity, Ancestral veneration and communication and various forms of African rituals and prayers.
Systems covered include Akan (Ghana), Dagara, (Burkina Faso), Kemetic Science (Ancient Egypt), Haitian Vodou (Haiti), Zulu (South Africa), and more. It also contains a dedicated section on rituals from the various traditions to instruct and guide those interested in living and cultivating an African spiritual-centred live – initiates and non-initiates alike.

    Like many of us I have been brought up a Christian and cannot claim to understand African spirituality. That said I do agree with the knowledge this group is gathering underlying the sad fact that across Africa, practitioners of African spirituality are consistently persecuted even by their own communities by being accused of practicing witchcraft and other claims perpetuated by our ignorance of our own spirituality. If this group can help set the record straight through their research and documentary they deserve, our support. This is good work.

    Like it says in this documentary, there’s so much information at our fingertips. Yet this topic has never existed in this cliche. So thank you for making something so vital, and intrinsic to our daily lives as spiritual beings available at our fingertips. I bought this as well as the first and watched them over two days. It has helped confirmed a lot of my own experiences and of some around me, and empowered me with so much I didn’t know. Its rewatch value is also incredible. Each chapter can be isolated and rewatched for a closer isolated look at the topic. Basically it’s like a living book of knowledge that keeps giving. I’m definitely studying this, for my professional practice as a dance artist learning more about Afro dance and its ritualistic nature, as well as my personal life as a spiritual being wanting to become more rooted and balanced. Thank you for producing these.
