Samhain 2011 - Journey to the Land of the Dead
Journey to the Land of the Dead.
Come one, come all to travel between the worlds as we celebrate Samhain at Blackberry Circle.
Once again we are celebrating with a public ritual and get together on November 5th, 2011, for those of you who would like to come, meet and enjoy fellowship with others of your faith.
Samhain is one of the two times when the veil between the worlds is thin and we are able to communicate and visit with those friends, family and loved ones who have passed on. This is a time of remembrance and of celebration as we celebrate the lives of those who have crossed the veil.
Join Blackberry Circle as we travel down to the Land of the Dead and learn what Mysteries we may learn from the darkness. It might be a good idea to bring a flashlight as the ground will be uneven during the journey.
The local Spiral Scouts - Spirit Guardians will have their meeting at BBC at 4:00pm. The Spiral Scouts is a Pagan based scouting program, such as those offered by the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and Camp Fire groups. The program was developed to be as inclusive as possible in all areas: it features coed groups and leaders and is nondiscriminatory in all regards (sexual orientation, religion, gender).
*** If you have children you are highly encouraged to attend the meeting and learn more about them. ***
The schedule so far is as follows:
- 4:00pm - Spiral Scouts meeting - those with children are encouraged to attend.
- 4:00pm - Vendors may arrive to set up their tables/wares
- 5:00pm - Public is welcomed to begin arriving to meet others, shop, and to simply have fun.
- 7:15pm - Ritual
- 8:00pm (about) - Feast, visiting, and drumming
We have confirmed that there will be vendors at Blackberry Circle that evening so bring some cash to purchase some nice things from your fellow Pagan artisans and business people. So far it looks like we will have Deidre LaFaye Magickal Gifts and EJ Creations. If any other vendors would like to attend please let one of the BBC folks know.
As always, bring:
- Camp chair to rest the butt-tocks
- Flashlight for journey to Land of the Dead
