A Pagan & Witchy Space that welcomes you as you are
Join Wyoming Valley CUUPS for our Samhain Rituals (and Potluck for our in-person gathering)!
Samhain falls at the time of year the light noticeably fades. Pagans reflect on and review the past year and welcome the Celtic New Year. In this season, Pagans also honor death as a part of the sacred circle of life and remember those who have died.
FOR OUR IN-PERSON RITUAL:
Arrive between 4:00-4:15pm
Ritual will start at 4:20PM
Please feel free to bring an item or items for the Ancestral/Remembrance Altar. This year, we will have spaces for Ancestors, Beloved Friends, Ancestors of the Order (ascended masters, trailblazing witches - the Mighty Dead of Witchcraft), and Animal Companions. We will also be hosting a Samhain ritual for the children at the same time for our in-person gathering!
Traditional dress for Samhain is harvest colors or dark colors (mourning dress).
After the in-person ritual, we will gather for the Potluck after the ritual. Please either keep ingredient list or label all offerings with the included ingredients to allow those with dietary restrictions to make healthy choices for themselves.
Our rituals like to include drumming, so feel free to bring a percussion instrument if you have one. Depending on the weather, we may do a fire outside and have a drum circle after our potluck. Its late October so probably not, but one can hope...
