Samhain Public Ritual and Feast Of The Dead

 Sunday, October 28th, Kin Hut Activity Centre

Doors open at 4:30 pm

Join us in sacred space as we will open the gates to the otherworld and pay respect to our ancestors, family members, elders, friends, pets and other loved ones who have died.

We will take a guided meditation journey beyond the veil that separates the worlds, to a place where we can touch the spirits of our ancestors and departed loved ones.

(Remember to bring a blanket or pillow if you wish to lie on the floor during the guided meditation.)

Please feel free to bring a memento (photo or other item) of your departed one to be placed on one of the altars.

After the main ritual, join us for the potluck Feast of The Dead and in welcoming in the Pagan New Year.

 

*IMPORTANT NOTICE*The circle welcomes families and children to all public rituals and services with the exception of the once yearly Samhain guided meditation. During this once per year event we provide and space with activities for the small children so that the adults and older children can experience the meditation without distraction.

Regrettably, our usual location for winter rituals was not available for rental, so we will be holding Samhain at the Kin Hut at Departure Bay. The Kin Hut is a single room hall, and this means we will not have a space to provide alternate activities for the small children during the guided meditation this year.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and we will be seeking an alternate location for next years Samhain.

However, the children are most welcome to join us for the feast after the main ritual.
