Time together and Time with our ancestors

Join us at the beautiful Camp West Mar for a weekend of togetherness to celebrate another turn of the wheel.  

Samhain is the last harvest holiday of the wheel and as such we gather to feast together as a community.  Join us Friday Evening for an opening ritual and fire circle.  Saturday evening's main ritual is brought to you by our own order of the broken board.  Eat together as a community as we celebrate the season.  Registration includes Saturday evening's feast. 

Look forward to workshops, classes, crafts pumpkin' carving and more.
