Our next holiday celebration is Samhain- Saturday, October 29, 2016 @ 4:00 pm
Guests are invited to bring photos or mementos of their Ancestors for our altar. Dressing up in costumes is encouraged as this is both a somber and joyous occasion.
Arrive at 4:00 for an ancestral recipe swap. Bring copies of a special family recipe that you are willing to share. Those who want can explain the significance. A kid-friendly activity is TBD.
We will have our pre-ritual briefing at 5:00, and ritual will begin shortly after that. We are hoping to celebrate at the stone cirlce.
A potluck will immediately follow ritual. Please bring a dish to share. Check the potluck thread below to see our suggested theme and what other people are bringing.
We ask guests to bring their own reusable place settings out of respect for Mother Earth. Although the event is free, a $5 donation from each guest is suggested to cover the cost of renting the Yoga Center and ritual supplies.
*** What to Bring ***
– An open heart and mind
– Offerings to your Ancestors of blood, heart, and place; offerings to your spirit allies (biodegradable and/or safe to burn).
– A potluck dish to pass as well as your own place settings ( emphasis on reusable so as to respect the Earth Mother as much as we can ).
– A small donation towards our rental fee and ritual supplies ($5 suggested).
