We expect 500+ people to attend our gala. There will be live music by the Witchs Mark, dancing, readers, lights on our labyrinth, ongoing evening ceremonies. At Midnight we shall perform our solemn Samhain Celebration and after retelling the Story of the Crone. The Crone is the third aspect of womanhood representing wisdom, power and magick.

Among us will be coven members, solitaries, the experienced, the seekers, and the curious. We expect respectful behavior from everyone.

The deejay music will be raucous and magickal. Our jewelry vendor will have pentacles. Our psychics readers will be busy.

As the evening progresses, we will hold an Attunement Ritual in the Memorial Garden. Later, it is rumored that we will do a hand fasting.

At 10:15 pm, we will perform a Ritual for the season in a Druid tradition.

At midnight, we spin the Wheel of the Year. We retell the story of this season and of the Crone. We stare into the Fire of Transformation. Perhaps we will be greeted by Spirit Dancers as we enter the Underworld and our Ritual Space. We will have drums and bonfires. We will light candles for our departed loved ones and reach out to them through sacred fire.

We will raffle some meaningful door prizes: 

Yes, we encourage you to support of our local Metaphysical Shoppe's.

Ritual garb and/or costumes are encouraged. NO PHOTOS AT RITUALS! No photos elsewhere without consent of all those included, even in background. Some of us are still closeted. Shhhhh!
