Samhain

Sunday November  3, 2019

Social hour & set-up: 3:00pm
Pre-ritual briefing starts: 4:00pm          Location: Upper Cascades Park Lion’s Den Shelter

We will be honoring deities Cailleach and Manannan mac Lir from the Celtic pantheon.
As always, all who are respectful are welcome.
  • Our rituals are always outdoors. Be sure to dress appropriately.
  • We always have a fire at our rituals unless there is a burn ban.
  • Our rituals usually last from 1 1/2 to 3 hours, followed by revels, usually at the site.
  • We often use incense and sage for smudging and sometimes kerosene for torches.
  • Rituals in the Hoosier National Forest are at primitive campsites. There are no restrooms. Just trees.

WE SUGGEST BRINGING:

  • A chair (if you don’t want to stand for the entire ritual);
  • Offerings (these can be physical items, a musical offering, poetry, etc.);
  • A beverage or food for revels;
  • A monetary donation for charity.
    (No one will be turned away for bringing none of these things.)
