You are invited to join Vancouver Reclaiming for our 25th Annual Public Samhain Ritual and Spiral Dance
Please note Samhain has Gaelic origins and was first celebrated in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man: Vancouver Reclaiming Samhain
In reflecting on the feedback from the original 2017 intention, we made edits to ensure that our collective magic will direct us to journey and connect with our own personal ancestors.
Samhain 2017 updated intention:
We travel in spirit to the lands of our blood.
Reaching into the earth,
We hold the bones of our ancestors.
Dirt under nails,
We embrace the living and those to come.
The event will be held at the Maritime Labour Centre, located at 1880 Triumph St, Vancouver, BC V5L 4C3
Tickets are $15-$25 sliding scale (children under 12 free). No one turned away for lack of funds.
Tickets will be available online or at the door.
