Beltaine and Samhain – Summer’s beginning and its end, are viewed as liminal periods, a time when the separation between the worlds of mortal living and the supernatural is thin. Myths of many cultures describe individuals who have broached this barrier. Driven by love, a desire for knowledge, power, or wealth, or simply by accident, those who make the journey successfully return transformed by encounters with Gods and spirits.
Mystery traditions for the last two thousand plus years have recreated these stories to give initiates that sense of wonder and communion with the Powers. In that tradition, this samhain, the SEF has turned to the Norse sagas to create an experiential journey between the worlds, a chance to greet the Gods face to face.
Please note that participants will be walking on trails through the woods, and should wear appropriate clothing. In the event of truly inclement weather, another indoor ritual is planned.
