What is Alchemical Samhain?
An experiment like none other, an interweaving of the alchemical fire with the celebration of Samhain!
As with any good alchemical experiment, we ask those that attend our TriFire event to release that which holds 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 our intentions are set for letting go of old behaviors that no longer serve us well at this time of the year.
Please 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 precautions we will take are to be determined as our Health Advisory Committee reviews the most current data. We also ask you to 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.
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.
We will have sole use of the entire 244 scenic acres and facilities over the weekend at Camp Grove Point in Earleville, MD.
