Date: October 29, 2023 3:00 pm

Join Three Cranes Grove as we celebrate Samhain at the Spring Hollow Lodge at Sharon Woods Metro Park! This ritual is free, public, and open to all.

Ritual date: October 29, 2023 (More specific information about this ritual forthcoming.)

This rite will be held hybrid — all are welcome to join us in person, but we will also stream over Zoom. We strive to weave all attendees into our magic, no matter how they join us, and we invite all remote participants to pray at their home shrines along with us if they have them, or in the shrine of their heart if they do not, and to join with us in offering.


While our ritual activities begin with conviviality at 2:30pm and continue with potluck after the rite, ritual is scheduled for 3:30 sharp (or as close as we can manage).

2:30 — Social hour/gathering
3:00 — Zoom meeting begins
3:15 — Pre-ritual briefing
3:30 — Ritual begins
Potluck to follow ritual

If you can’t make it in-person, we’d love to see you via Zoom.

What should I have with me?

If you’re new to all this, check our information for first-time attendees!

But in general, there’s not much you need to have. Zoom attendees are welcome to give offerings at their home shrine, or in the shrine of their hearts. In-person attendees are welcome to bring offerings to give into the fire or well, or to scatter by the tree. If you’ll be joining in person, we also invite you to bring a dish to share at potluck. Not sure what to bring? Anything will be welcome, but hearty main dishes are always especially welcome. Many people have dietary restrictions, so if you’d like to be especially hospitable, it’s great to have a label for your dish, especially if a dish may be appealing to a particular population (vegetarian, gluten-free, etc.).
