On the different types of animal guides, the rite of passage of coming into one's medicine, and finding it at the inner crossroads.

Samhain Traditions -- with Laurelei Black
Explore a variety of ancestor-honoring practices from the Northern European (and eclectic American) practice. We'll definitely discuss things like masking and costuming, litanies, seances/divination, dumb suppers, carved gourds, etc.  

Psychic Drawings -- with Natalie Long

Break out the colored pencils! It's time to have a little colorful fun with your intuition! After learning the basic principles behind psychic drawings, we will pair off to attempt to psychically 'send' images to each other. Afterwars, we will learn about auras and the be paired off again to create an 'aura portrait' of our partner. Don't worry about art skills. Basic coloring sheets will be provided. All you need to do is trust your intuition and see what is going on with your partner inside.


Simultaneous Fires
Main Bonfire: Nightly fire with Drumming and Dancing.

Bardic Circle Fire: Share spooky stories and sing some songs while enjoying a complementary hot beverage.

Ancestor Grove Fire: this is a quiet fire for the remembrance of our ancestors, meditation, and healing of body and spirit.



Please note that the Kitchen-Vendor is not normall open for regular business during Hallows, though she could always decide to make a special offering, at her discretion. We have pitch-in community meals planned for both Friday and Saturday evenings. Bring something to share for these meals, or feel free to make other food plans if you prefer. Please come prepared to feed yourself and those in your care during the rest of the festival.
