“Walking, I am listening to a deeper way. Suddenly, all my ancestors are behind me. Be still, they say. Watch and listen. You are the result of the love of thousands.” -Linda Hogan
*This is an online Circle, Friday, Nov 4th 7pm-9pm EDT on Zoom. If you are new to the Hearthfire Circles, learn more about them here.
Samhain comes from Gaelic meaning ‘Summer’s End’- so it carries with it the energy of endings, letting go and grief as the warmth and fertility of the Earth Mother wanes and her energy goes back to seed. As the plants’ vital energies flow downward to their roots, we too draw our energies inward, becoming more interested in our roots on this planet and the seeds of our future we wish to dream into the dark potential of this time.
Samhain is often considered The Witches’ New Year, as the seed of next year is planted now. We may not be aware of its full potential yet, but with all death comes the seed of rebirth which will grow in the spring. For now, it incubates.
Traditionally this is considered a time where the veil between our earthly realm and the Otherworld or spirit world is thin, meaning we have easier access to our spirit guides, ancestors and beloved dead at this time of year. Due to this, it can be a great time for spiritual insight and ritual. It is also however a time where we need to be more conscious of energetic protection and boundaries, as we are more vulnerable to negative energies in both this world and the unseen.
In this circle, we will discuss the energies at play this time of year and how to navigate them wisely. We will discuss energetic protection, as well as ancestral wounds, gifts and lineage healing. We will go on a guided Meditation journey to our ancestors and connect with one to learn more about our inherited gifts and wounds. We will then do a small ritual to support healing ourselves and our lineage in the process.
If you’d like to learn more about lineage healing, you can read my latest blog post- Healing Our Lineage, Healing Ourselves. Circle registration info below!
This Samhain Circle takes place on Zoom- Friday, Nov 4th 7pm-9pm EDT. In the online circles, I try to hold a similar space as in-person. So, I keep the group small and encourage some participation, sharing and connection. However, you don’t need to share anything if you don’t wish to of course. Space is limited for quality purposes and not recorded for confidentiality. All genders and paths welcome, no witchy experience is necessary!
Admission is PWYC $25. If it is your first time, it is free.
If you would like to join, please contact me and let me know you’d like to join, and if it is your first time at one of my circles. Once I respond, I will ask for your etransfer (if applicable) and then send you the Zoom link.
I look forward to celebrating with you!
