Olden Practice 

A project for remembering and reclaiming the ancestral skills, crafts and traditions that once defined a meaningful life, Olden Practice is part blog, part spiritual journey memoir and all joy in the sharing.  Come, there is a seat at the table and the food is almost ready.

Remembering the Real

In my years of ancestral research I have found themes woven again and again: craft, skill, tradition, faith, community and care all threaded through lives of meaning and purpose. My ninety-three year old grandmother has helped me return to a sacred wisdom, centering family and restoring a memory of what truly matters. Olden Practice is a memory beginning from belief: that we can and should honor our ancestors with the work of our hands.
