I'm delighted to be doing a ritual workshop for Samhain at Observatory on November 1st. Full info here:
Samhain/All Souls’ Ritual Workshop with Pam Grossman
Date: Thursday, November 1st
Presented by Phantasmaphile
***You must RSVP to phantasmaphile [at] gmail.com if you’d like to attend, as space is limited
Samhain, Day of the Dead, and All Soul’s Day all fall between October 31st and November 2nd. Regardless of the holiday’s name of your choosing, this is the time of year when the veil between worlds is thinnest. It is also considered “Witches’ New Year,” and it is when our powers of foresight and intuition are at their peak. Tonight, we gather to commune with our ancestors, honor them, and ask for their guidance. We will also use methods divination and meditation to set our intention for the coming year. Finally, we shall feed our beloved dead and ourselves with a traditional “Silent Supper.”
-A bit of food or drink to share with the group, and a bit extra for our ancestors
-Any altar objects you like. Photographs or other meaningful items of those who have passed are highly recommended. Other objects can be decorative (Halloween or autumnal decor of any kind is welcome), and/or personal objects which you’d like to have charged.
-A candle and holder
-A cushion, pillow, or fabric, as we will be sitting on the floor (chairs will be available for those who need).
Note-taking is welcome. This workshop is open to men and women, novices and advanced practitioners alike.
Do drop me an email if you plan on attending, as space is limited. Looking forward to seeing you there.
