Friends on the Other Side

Friends on the Other SideJoin Blackberry Circle as we celebrate Samhain on 3 November 2018.  Arrival time begins at 6:00 PM and ritual will be after sunset.

Children’s ritual information below.

This year we are celebrating “Friends on the Other Side,” and will be traveling from the Circle of the Living down to the Otherworld Circle where we will commune with our friends and family who have passed on from this life.

An Altar of the Dead will be set up in the Otherworld Circle, so if you have friends, family, or loved ones that have passed over this past year, or anytime really, bring something that reminds you of them to be placed on the altar.

We will also be performing a working involving corn dollies, so if you made a corn dolly at one of the two previous rituals, bring it with you.  If you do not have one, supplies will be available for you to make one before ritual.

** Children’s Ritual **
There will be a children’s Samhain ritual at 5:00 PM, so if you have children, feel free to bring them early (about 4:30 PM) and they can attend a ritual just for the little heathens, er, Pagans.
ADULTS, please do not arrive before 6:00 PM unless you have children for the little one’s ritual.

A pot luck will follow the ritual, so bring something you would like to share with everyone else.

There will also be a raffle and hand-crafted items for sale to help support these public rituals, so bring cash, lots of cash, we like cash. LOL

Bring a camping chair or something to rest your weary arse on as well.

So, come join Blackberry Circle, rain or shine, and remember to bring:

  • Yourself
  • Something for the Altar of the Dead, if you want
  • Your corn dolly (or make one here before ritual)
  • A chair to rest your weary arse (camp chair or similar)
  • Something to share for potluck
  • A sense of humour.

PLEASE DO NOT bring your fur children. Furless ones are always welcome at BBC unless otherwise specified.
