Event Details

Do you want to honor your Ancestors with like-minded people? People who see the value in taking care of those in the spiritual realm that take care of us.

Come attend a zem-zem ceremony at The Earth Center, an authentic African (Dogon) spiritual temple located right here in Chicago.

The zem-zem ceremony is a means to communicate and express gratitude, lament, and commune with one’s Ancestors.

The zem-zem is humanity’s oldest documented ceremony of its kind and originates in Kemet (Ancient Egypt).

It has been preserved in select initiations in Africa, including those in Dogon traditions, and has been released by elders and kingships in Africa for people outside of the continent to benefit from.

Watch initiates of The Earth Center perform the age-old zem-zem

Learn the specific movements and chants

Communicate with your Ancestors

Make offerings and wishes to the spiritual world through Dogon traditions

Reduces stress, frees the mind, and calms the heart

This ceremony is free and open to ages 7 and up (children under 7 are welcome but should be kept quiet).

Come participate in person or join us online. This ceremony only occurs once every 10 days. Don’t miss your chance!
