The dark is here. The shift in the Sun’s path is undeniable as the days shorten and the weather grows darker and colder.
The Cross-Quarter holiday Samhain (pronounced “sow-wain”) is possibly the most well-known of the Sabbats. Americans celebrate it as Hallowe’en.
Samhain is the true tipping point into The Underworld Journey of Winter. Learn how to incorporate archetypes and symbols that can sometimes be dark and spooky into your life as healthy and balanced forms of working with The Shadow and to help you make the final shift away from the labor and celebrations of Autumn into the stillness and and rebirth of the coming Winter season.
In this two hour lecture we will take a look at the superstitions and traditions surrounding Samhain, considering how people have used revelry, shape shifting, and pranks to deal with the oncoming chaos and breakdown of Winter – or to help bring it about.
Immerse yourself in the ancient global rituals of this Cross Quarter festival acknowledging the death of the Sun and the Earth discover how you can evoke this power in your own life and world.
But the work isn’t done after one night! We’ll take a look at what we can expect for the coming 6-7 weeks of Samhain season, learn how you can observe this time of transition for yourself or with your community, and get ready to Head Underground
