A couple of weeks ago I posted an email to the group asking who was interested in a journey to the Underworld at Samhain. I got an impressive response, from far more people than I expected, so I'm going to do it.
This is a physical journey, not a meditation. In this ritual you will be going into the Underworld where you will meet with and speak to the dead. This will be an intimate and personal ritual. Everyone will take something different away from it. It is a Sacred Mystery that you have the opportunity to participate in.
This will be different than anything most of the members of this group have ever done before.
Because of time limitations, you have just one week to sign up for this ritual, and unlike my normal Meetup. if you do not RSVP, you will not be allowed to attend. There is also a limit on the number of people who will be allowed to participate.
Do not RSVP unless you are sure that you will be able to make it to the ritual.
If you do plan to attend:
- You must wear ritual clothing, or funeral attire.
- Each person attending must bring two coins.
- You should bring a warm coat for the outdoor part of the ritual.
- You may want to bring a blanket or lawn chair.
- We are going into the Underworld. There will be stairs.
- You must RSVP before Oct. 29th. You will not be allowed to RSVP after, or just show up.
This is what I meant in my email, by being "willing to do whatever it takes" to attend this ritual. Those wearing street clothes will not be allowed to take part. A changing area will be provided if you need it.
Because of the nature of this ritual, children will not be allowed to participate.
This is not a ritual for everyone. Only a relative few are ready for this type of journey. If you are one of those few, you need to RSVP now before all the spots are taken.
