Mysteries of Samhain (Halloween)

Spooks and ghouls and vampires? A harvest holiday? Witches' New Year? Join Kamala as she explains the lore behind Halloween, also known as Samhain to the ancient Celts. Learn about the Dumb Supper and other pagan traditions of the season. Participate in a guided meditation to help you find your own connection to the powerful energies of this festive time of year.

Kamala (Dana Gass) is called the Hindjewitch by those who know her well. She has been practicing and teaching pagan traditions for over 20 years. An aromatherapist and herbalist by trade, she runs Kamala's Own Magickal and Mundane Perfumery and interviews high school students for admission to her alma mater, Harvard University.

From 6:30-8:00pm, Tuesday, October 30th.

    Good info, but not new to me. I've read it all before. I've heard the concept, but I hadn't heard the term Liminal Space before, which will be added to my vocab now. Happy Samhain. Blessed Be. :)

    There are no age requirements for any of our workshops as long as the younger kiddos can sit through the class without disturbing others in attendance. For the most part, we leave that up to the parents to decide because they know their child best. Thank you for asking!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
