As with any good alchemical experiment, TriFire seeks to release that which hold us back (our lead) and transform it into an expression of our highest self (gold). Sometimes, you have to shake things up a little bit in order to generate some change. This year, we are truly shaking things up by mixing and interweaving the experience of an Alchemical Fire Circle with the celebration of Samhain.
This will be an experiment completely unlike any that we have attempted before. Under the gaze of a waning moon, we will honor those who came before us and set the stage for our own personal growth. Samhain is seen as the start of the new year in some circles. As such, it is appropriate that intentions are set for letting go of old behaviors that no longer serve us well at this time of the year.
Bring your masks that help to protect you and those around you from becoming ill; standard Covid-19 precautions will be in place to ensure our physical health, more details on this are to come as our Health Advisory Committee reviews the most current data.
Bring your masks that help you to experience this auspicious time of year, when the veil between the land of the living and the realm of the dead is at its thinnest. While dressing up is not a requirement, we do encourage those joining us to wear black for Friday night's circle, and a combination of reds, golds, and purple hues for Saturday's ceremony.
And bring the masks that are worn in your everyday life. Some of these "masks" are worn to protect our hearts and souls from those who would do us harm. Sometimes we wear these "masks" to protect us from ourselves, and these are the most difficult to remove.
Yours in the Fire,Argon Jon~
