"Inspire", The Crypt
Dark and Light
Day and Night
Halloween, All Saints' Day and Fireworks Night are really the same festival, the Autumn festival of death and rebirth, of dark and light, of harvest plenty and making ready for winter. This festival has its origins deep in the land in which we live, and is often known as Samhaine. This is a very special time of year, and the energy with which Halloween and Fireworks Night are celebrated bears witness to this. Closely related, the Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico and other Latin countries.
It is a time when the veil between the worlds is thin and the unseen is close, a truly shamanic time. It is a time to honour those who have gone before us, to be at peace with the transience of our manifestaton in this physical world, and a time of love, light and celebration!
DOGA is ecstatic dance to live music, interwoven with meditation, sharing and creativity in many different forms. We welcome you to this evolving event.
