How to Celebrate a Traditional Samhain

Friday, Oct. 23, 2020 at 6 – 8 PT / 7 – 9 MT / 8 – 10 CT / 9 – 11 ET
Cost: $10 with code Springbunny

It’s the night we remember our ancestors and beloved dead, and communicate through the veil between the worlds… the night of the Third Harvest, as the flocks and herds are thinned and we prepare for a hard winter.  Join Amber K to discuss how our ancestors marked this sacred time, and how you can do the same.  We will look at ways to honor and remember the 800,000 who have passed this year due to Covid-19, and how we can prepare ourselves and our community for a hard winter in this changing world.  Samhain is almost here, and more great challenges will ensue. Together, let us be ready.  Register for this Zoom event here.

Remembering Our Ancestors

Friday, Oct. 30, 2020 6 – 8 PT / 7 – 9 MT / 8 – 10 CT / 9 – 11 ET
FREE

A Samhain Eve Sharing Circle.  As the veil thins between the worlds, let us gather and share memories and stories of those who have passed.  These may be family members and relatives, more distant ancestors, people who have died in the pandemic, victims of shootings near and far, or even whole ecosystems and wildlife populations that have succumbed to climate change.  Share your stories of your beloved dead, or those you did not know personally, but for whom your heart grieves.  This event will be a version of the ancient “Dumb (silent) Supper,” though it is not required that you prepare food for the dead.  To register for this Zoom event, sign up online at ardantane.org

Reaching for the Moon PodcastReach for the Moon

It’s the 62nd episode of Reaching for the Moon, the podcast brought to you by the witches of Everglades Moon Local Council.  Missing live workshops?  Let their Lammas episode scratch that itch. 

The Lammas 2020 podcast brings you a song workshop done by the Crow Women at MerryMeet in New Mexico.  This unedited version of the workshop is just as you hear it, with all the “people” noises that you expect from being in a live workshop with a roomful of folks, who talk and laugh and sing together, sometimes all at once!  If you’re missing your live interaction with peeps, this will help.:-)

Ravens at the Crossroads

Hosted by MistressPrime and Tyler Matthews

Ravens at the Crossroads podcast was conceived during a conversation between our two hosts while discussing the recent loss of a Pagan elder. They realized the stories of our community, especially of our elders, were being lost and forgotten. In an effort to preserve many of those stories the podcast was created.
