For 15 years it has been our privilege to hold our annual Witches' Ball and Samhain Celebration for the Pagan community of Sonoma County. Once again we invite you to come and celebrate and feast with us. Costume or ritual garb is encouraged.
This year’s evening’s festivities include:
The intent for this years ritual is Parting the Fabric of Spacetime to Step Through the Veil and Speak With Our Ancestors. The ritual will be facilitated by Ben Terra, Leeanen Sidhe and other SCPN members. The ritual facilitators request that those who wish to participate in the ritual bring with them a small token or memento to help them focus on connecting with their ancestors/beloved dead. Also that you bring (if you desire) a small portion of your pot luck dish into circle with you to share with your ancestor.
Dinner With The Dead
This year, we are requesting/suggesting that to make our connection to our ancestors/beloved dead that much more special, you bring a dish or dessert that has an ancestral or family connection for you. Why not make one of Nonna's favorite recipes? Or share Grampa's favorite kind of cookies? Samhain feast is not only a time to honor our dead, but we also mark the New Year and celebrate our abundant harvest. Let's enjoy a bountiful meal together in the midst of our dearly departed. We ask that you bring a potluck dish to share that serves 4-6 people and/or a non-alcoholic brew. Please bring your own place setting. There will be hot water available for tea.
Witch And Wizard Hat Contest
We just can't wait to see what all the stylish witches and wizards are wearing this year. So if you have a hat that you made yourself or something you bought and embellished that you want to show off, bring it and wear it for a chance to win a prize.
