11am - 3 pm
Come prepared to muscle down the Beltane Maypole and put your energy into cutting your own piece to place ceremoniously, creating an altar to hold The Cauldron of the Ancestors upon, within Ffynnon’s ancestor shrine.
Now is the season when we enter the darkness, allowing our creative energies to stir inside, a seed is blanketed for the winter - transforming - in anticipation of new life!
Rekindling a Mystic and Mythic Connection to the Ancestors!
Along with cutting the Maypole, attendees will craft a message to their Ancestors during a Rite of Samhain through The Cauldron of the Ancestors. These offerings will be made after a personal reflection of how we define ancestors and of our personal cultural traditions; as well as an opportunity to gain a new perspective of a variety of cultural traditions of how ancestors are honored and celebrated.
Lastly, we shall return from our communion with the ancestors and …
Turn the Wheel!
Acknowledge the Gifts
of the Witches' New Year!
New life and new endeavors abound for us all - supported by our ancestors, we will call out the ways new creative life and energy has and will enter our year - the names of all the new children - be they newborns or simply creative energy that has awakened for you this year!
The end is always the beginning...
This event will be taking place outdoors, so please dress for the weather and wear proper footwear. Ffynnon will provide popups, tables and seating, but if you have a favorite camp chair, please bring it.
Fresh apple cider and treats will be shared at the end of the event to ground and warm us for our journeys home.
This is a Free community rite, but we still need you to register. We look forward to celebrating and experiencing ritual together with you!
We gladly accept any and all donations to help us as we grow and become a better space for our community.
