Samhain virtual circle: healing our lineageFriday, October 30th, 2020 from 7pm-9pm (Zoom)
“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
Join us Friday, October 30th 2020 from 7-9pm as we seek ancestral wisdom for healing our lineage.
Samhain is an ancient Celtic festival that honours the dead. It is traditionally a time where the veil between this world and the Otherworld is thin, making contact between ourselves and the spirits much easier. This is where we celebrate our loved ones who have passed on, those we have known as well as those ancestors we have never met in the flesh. It is a time where we can glean wisdom on what gifts and challenges have been passed down to us, and how we can heal the generations after us as well as the ones before us in this lifetime. It is also traditionally a time of sacrifice. As the 3rd harvest celebration (Lammas and Autumn Equinox being the first two), we acknowledge the hunt and slaughter of animal life that helped to sustain ours. Metaphorically, it also relates to the process of sacrifice, letting go and clearing that we must do now in our psyche and body. It is a time to get rid of of that which no longer serves us so that we can make space for the new. Samhain is also observed as the pagan New Year. It is a time of death, transformation and renewal. There is much to celebrate during this deep and rich time of year!
In this virtual circle, we will discuss the themes of Samhain and focus on the healing of our ancestral lineage. We will do a meditation journey together to connect with not only our blood lineage but our spiritual ancestors to understand a particular gift and challenge that has been passed down to us and how we can heal ourselves and our lineage at this time. We will then discuss practical steps towards doing so.
