Samhain Ancestor Workshop
Saturday, October 30th
10am - 12pm
Join us to connect with our Ancestors.
It's the Witch's New Year. As the old year ends as the final harvests finish and plants die back for the cold season, we enter the "dark half of the year". There is less sunlight lighting our way. In pagan Celtic times October 31st was called Samhain - pronounced "Sau-in". This date is the half-way point between the Fall Equinox and the Winter Solstice.
The ancient Celts knew the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest as we end one year and begin another. Many cultures around the world practiced this same belief. The spirit beings are close and ready to hear our requests for assistance. Our own ancestors come near to offer love, guidance, and wisdom.
Calling in our ancestors reminds of the eternal circle of our lineage. We are never alone. We have allies and friends in the other realms who are always here if we call on them and are able to open our inner eyes to their presence. As we gather together to call on the medicine of our ancestors and other beings who come near, we feel less alone.
Our ancestors are rooting for us to heal and transform what they could not and our healing affects all those before us as well as those after us.
This workshop will be co-led with my partner Erica Skone-Rees of Rare Bird.
Samhain Ancestor Workshop includes:
Shamanic Journey - Drumming takes us into a deep meditative state. In this place we will meet our ancestors
Art - Work with the messages of your ancestors through process art and collage. We will work with a photo and the messages you receive.
Ritual - Creating a sacred circle and sharing the wisdom, humor, and shadows and lessons that our ancestors bring through to each of us. We are all transformed in the sharing.
