Samhain: Circle of the Mighty Dead, Renewal of the Living

The Witches' New Year is a time to honor our Mighty Dead. In safe and sacred space, guests will have the opportunity to bless the Souls of the Departed, particularly those lost in the past year. We will provide space for those who are willing to share stories of their Beloved Dead. After we collectively raise blessings for the Departed, the final part of the ritual will include a rite of cleansing by Fire and Water to shed the pain of the past Wheel of the Year, and begin the new Wheel refreshed in Spirit. Come prepared to shed that within you which is "dead." Be ready to embrace vitality, power, energy, and kinship with those who have gone to the Summerland. It will conclude with feasting, fellowship, dancing, singing! Bring drums and noisemakers and songs! 

Ritual begins at 7:00 p.m., sharp! Plan to arrive at 6:45. ****If you arrive after the ritual has begun, we cannot admit you into the space, but feel free to hang out and look at things and join us for feast and fellowship, afterward.***** Teenagers must attend with parent or legal guardian. No one under 13 will be admitted.

* Food/drink to share, if you are able. Bring your own plate, cup, and utensils or prepare to share! No disposables! 
* Photographs and/or trinkets of your Departed.
