We expect 400+ people to attend our gala. There will be deejay music and dancing, readers, lights on our labyrinth, ongoing evening ceremonies. At Midnight we shall perform our solemn Samhain Celebration and invoke the great Dark Goddess Ereskigal after retelling the Story of the Decent on Inanna.

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, we do a small ceremony of seasonal focus.

At midnight, we spin the Wheel of the Year. We retell the story of this season and of Inanna's journey into the Underworld to face her Dark Sister Ereskigal. 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.
