Our Next High Day Celebration is for Samhain – Saturday, November 1st
Those interested in reading or re-reading the late Margot Adler’s influential book, “Drawing Down the Moon,” should finish by Samhain. We will meet and discuss prior to our ritual.
This workshop is for adults and truly interested teenagers. While we will try to have an art activity for younger kids and a treasure basket for toddlers, please also bring a quiet indoor activity for any kids you’ll have with you (puzzles, tablet with earbuds, coloring book, etc).
As is traditional at Samhain, Grey Catsidhe will lead a ritual in which we honor our Ancestors of blood, heart, and place. Emphasis is on those who passed away this year, and we will do our apple rite to guide them to the Otherworld. This is one of our most emotional rites. Guests are invited to bring photos and small mementos of Ancestors for our shrine. Guests are also invited to bring offerings for the Ancestors and spirit allies.
Costumes are encouraged! Please keep in mind that young children will be in attendance when choosing your costume.
We are hoping to have this ritual outdoors. Dress accordingly.
Immediately after the ritual (~6:00)
