Samhain, Shadow Fest, Day of the Dead, Feast of Hungry Spirits, All Hallows Eve, Halloween, no matter the name or the
practice, there is a certain thrill that runs up and down the spine as the days of fall draw near. The fading
season holds a power and magick like no other.
The feeling of slowing down, the changing leaves, the crisp night air and the feeling of shadows as the days grow shorter
and the nights grow longer.For those who seek the mysteries beyond the veil, this Sabbat is a yearly pilgrimage
into the mists of the other side, a longed for reunion with the spirits of the beloved dead, the needed cleansing of
one's self and one's space, the required letting go in preperation for the dark times ahead.
In conjuction with Moon Struck and the wonderful folk at Harmony Nature
Sanctuary, the Circle of the Blue Moon is proud to present this year's Samhain Festival: "Season of the Witch".
Come turn the Great Wheel with us as we welcome back the spirits of the Beloved Dead and light the sacred fires upon the
ancester shrine, burn away the old year in the inspiring and cleansing effigy right. Meet with the Shades who dwell in the
otherworld as you walk the twilight path to meet the great Lady of Death. Seek her aid and offer prayers at the sacred shrine.
Raise voice in praise as we chant around the bonfire and sing your heart out at Scary-o-kie. Bring the wee-ones in costume for
a bit of Trick-Or-Treating around the campsite. Hone your skills and knowledge with classes taught in the ways of the ancient
As with any festival or gathering hosted by the Circle of the Blue Moon this is a child friendly gathering so clothing is not optional.
