  • A Celebration of Samhain
  • Listen:
  • This week we celebrate the sabbat of Samhain, when the veil between this world and the afterlife is at its thinnest point of the whole year.

    Samhain is the end of the harvest season and the new solar year.
    A festival of darkness and we live softly by candle light. We light special bonfires that have protective and cleansing powers.
    We celebrate the lives of our Beloved Dead.

    "Now is the Night of November Eve, as the Samhain rites begin.

    Spirits step from the World Beyond, this night when the Veil is thin.

    Coming through the Land of Shadows, awakening from the World of Dreams,
    joining hands with the Children of Midnight as the Moonlight Lantern gleams.

    Drifting in the Wind of Evening, Chanting words in an ancient tongue,
    dancing light to the music of Fearies, as the Sacred Prayer is sung.

    We honor this In-Between time, this space between Darkness and Light,
    While greeting the Reign of the Winter King,
    On this Windy Autumn Night."

  • Holy Grail, Holy Cauldron
  • Listen:
  • This week we look at the so-called Holy Grail.

    What is this thing that people are so enamoured of? Did it even exist? People have been searching for it for hundreds of years, and it seems whenever they decide they can't find it, they create stories about it.

    So, let's travel back the the 12th century, where the myth of the Holy Grail seems to have it's beginnings. And we'll take a look at some of the embellishments that have been attached to it over time.

    There does seem to be a link between the Holy Grail of Christian myth and the Celtic tradition of the Cauldron. We'll get into that.

    Be well. Do good. Enjoy the show!
