Samhain Ritual with Jason Mankey
October 23, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 6:00 pm, repeating until October 23, 2021
Witchy Samhain Ritual
The Veil Between the Worlds is very thin. Let’s go to visit it, shall we? It’s a very Witchy Samhain Ritual and a journey to the Summerlands to reunite with the souls of our beloved dead.
This Samhain journey to the edge of the Summerlands to reunite with the souls of our beloved dead. Feel and experience the power of the Dread Lord of Shadows as he parts the veil and bestows his blessings upon the living. Embrace your inner Witch while paying your respects to the dead.
At this Samhain rite, we will be sharing our inner light to guide the spirits of those we’ve lost back into our world. And as those spirits stir around us, we will remember and grieve and honor them. Standing between this world and the next lies the Horned God of Death and Resurrection, who will share his blessings with all who come to celebrate Samhain.
How to Participate
If you wish (and it’s encouraged), bring a copy of a picture of a loved one (or some other reminder) who has passed on. We will be creating a portal through which the Spirits of the Dead may come across and visit for a time. Small offerings will be available for you to bless your photos and trinkets. PLEASE do not bring original photos or irreplaceable artifacts – this is a public ritual, and we cannot guarantee the safety of your offerings. If possible, please label your offering with a name and phone number.
This can be a very intense ritual and is not recommended for children.
We will be offering this ritual on Friday and Saturday night. When you register, you will choose which evening you wish to attend.
