Samhain Ritual

Day 81 of #100Daychallenge


Ritual nourishes me. Yesterday, I celebrated Samhain at a friend’s place. There were about thirty people at the ritual. Samhain is always a significant festival for me. It marks the end of summer, the start of winter, and symbollically it is a time of letting go. During our ceremony, a figure representing the old woman of winter from Irish legend comes into the circle carrying a cauldron. Each of us, had written a thing we wanted to let go of in our lives, and we gave that to her. She then put them in the central fire before leaving the circle. For myself, I thought about what sort of relationship I wanted to have with life, and wrote down the behaviour that is keeping me from that. Ritual nourishes me and supports me in my life.
