The Sabbat called Samhain is, no doubt, the most important, thought least understood, of the ancient Celtic festivals. It marks the end of the third and final harvest, it is a day to commune with and honor and remember the dead, and it is a celebration of the eternal cycle of rebirth. The Pagan Samhain is not, and never was, associated with evil or negativity. It has always been a time to reaffirm our belief in the oneness of all spirits and in our firm resolution that physical death is not the final act of existence. Though death is very much a part of Samhain’s symbolism, this Sabbat also celebrates the triumph of life over death.
Join us to speak with your loved ones on the other side. We will be honoring our beloved dead. If you lost a loved one recently, bring their picture to put on the altar.
Bring your favorite potluck dish to share as we celebrate the witches New Year, and set out a plate for your ancestors to share. Children are welcome to attend this celebration, though if they are sensitive to spirits, please be aware that we will be inviting our ancestors to join us. Please RSVP by Friday, October 30th so we know how many to provide supplies for.
Our circle is accepting of all, regardless of race, gender or orientation. Whether you are an experienced covener, new to the craft or just curious, you are welcome here. As we are told in the Charge of the Goddess, we bring “mirth and reverence” to our rituals.
We ask that you RSVP for rituals so we can make sure we have enough supplies for everyone. Dates may be subject to change. Feel free to contact us for more information!
Recommended donation for Circles is $5.00-$2.00 for members, and $10.00-5.00 for non-members. You can make donations or pay for your membership using PayPal on our website. Children do not need to pay membership. Please do not let money stop you from coming to Circle. We would rather have *you* there!
