Samhain (/ˈsɑːwɪn, ˈsaʊɪn/; Irish: [ˈsˠəuɪnʲ] Scottish Gaelic: [ˈs̪ãũ.ɪɲ]) is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the “darker half” of the year. Traditionally, it is celebrated from 31 October to 1 November, as the Celtic day began and ended at sunset. This is about halfway between the autumn equinox and the winter solstice. It is one of the four Gaelic seasonal festivals, along with Imbolc, Bealtaine and Lughnasadh. Historically, it was widely observed throughout Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man. Similar festivals are held at the same time of year in other Celtic lands; for example the Brythonic Calan Gaeaf (in Wales), Kalan Gwav (in Cornwall), and Kalan Goañv (in Brittany), both Celtic branches are roughly as old as each other.

Between The Worlds is an interfaith esoteric conference that occurs when the stars indicate that such a gathering is needed and favored. This conference is known for the high quality of its workshops, rituals, and collegial atmosphere. It is sponsored by the Assembly of the Sacred Wheel and was previously held in 1996, 2000, 2004, 2007, 2012, and 2015. The conference in 2015 was a joint event with the Sacred Space Foundation. The first six BTW conferences had a connecting theme about consciously working with the change of the Ages, the Aeons. The BTW in 2020 is about working to build the world that we wish to live in regardless of the challenges. This work is personal, collective, and transpersonal.

While the City has many action plans, they’re not aggressive enough to avoid irreversible environmental damage.

This is a weather ward that is to be used once a storm is very close. It does not attempt to steer the storm away, rather it works to create a calmer microclimate around your home or business. I am a great believer in keeping weather workings as local as possible in most cases.
This year’s event will take place in Clark Park B (the one with the two playgrounds and “The Bowl”).
The event will run from 10am to 6pm.
Admission to the event is free but we do ask that attendees bring a donation of non-perishable food items which will be donated to a local food bank and/or cat food for Forgotten Cats.
This year, we welcome Laura Tempest Zakroff as our Keynote Speaker.
In addition to that, we have 55+ vendors, 12 workshops, 4 entertainment acts, 3 rituals, 2 raffles, all-day children’s activities and a beautiful labyrinth.
Can’t wait to see you there!
