This is a SPECIAL LIMITED TICKETED event! Only open to the first 30 paid folks. Please click on the EventBrite link above for tickets.


The veil is thinning between our world and that of those that have come before us. Join us for a unique Mindful Outdoor Experience of connecting with our Ancestors, the Elements, and the more-than-human world πŸ’š


During the first four weekends in October we Mindful Wanderers celebrated and honored the 4 major elements during our Fall into Mindfulness series πŸ’š


- Fire πŸ”₯

- Water πŸ’§

- Air 🌬

- Earth 🌳


Now we celebrate the 5th Element 🌟✨🌌 of Spirit (Space, Void) by joining the four elements together for a special Celebration of Ancestors and the Celtic festival of Samhain (the Original Halloween). All in an amazing little slice of Nature in Macungie, PA.


$30 per person ticket includes a special Mindful Outdoor Experience focused on celebrating our ancestors through the traditions of Samhain 🧑 We will enjoy Celtic inspired Fall treats (so your bellies will not be growling) like mulled cider 🍡 hearty potatoe stew (Colcannon) 🍲 dark bread 🍞 cheese πŸ§€ apples 🍎honey 🍯 and (hopefully) foraged hickory nuts 🌰


We will partake in pumpkin decorating πŸŽƒ a fire ceremony πŸ”₯ a group oracle card reading 🌌 by a special guest (Suzie Bichovsky Thomas) and a visit to an on-site spring and the basement ruins 🏚 of the old restaurant.


All of this will be centered around a heart-warming fire πŸ”₯ created by me utilizing flint & steel πŸ’₯ our community "ancestral altar" πŸ§“πŸ½πŸ‘΅πŸ‘΄πŸ‘©πŸΎβ€πŸ¦³ a legacy Willow Tree 🌳 and the Little Lehigh Creek 🏞 If all 30 tickets are sold, a portion of the proceeds will be DONATED to the Little Lehigh Watershed Stewards for their continued stewardship of this important watershed.


We will be combining the 4 elements into our journey with the Spirit (Space, Void):


- Fire πŸ”₯ Bringing flame to life with the traditional flint and steel method, and centering ourselves around a council Fire where we will seal intentions or release that which plagues you, through a fire ceremony. Hopefully enjoy the setting sun together πŸŒ„


- Water πŸ’§ Settling in on the banks of the Little Lehigh Creek, gathering the water energy by rinsing our hands in the cool water, then settling in to an underground springhouse and exploring the thinning of the veil.🏞


- Air 🌬 Breathing in to connect with our bodies. Breathing out to connect with the Earth and our ancestors. Breathing life into our sacred Fire. Listening to the sounds of the Creek and the more-than-human world float into our ears on the Autumnal winds. Watching the leaves fall πŸ‚


- Earth 🌳 Walking gently and with reverence on the skin of our Mother. Partaking in the fruits of her labor. Spending the last few moments of harvest-time as we prepare for the approach of the Winter King and settle in until Spring.πŸβ„πŸŒ±


You did not need to have attended the previous events to attend this one.


This is a special time of year as we fully step into the peak of the Fall season πŸ§‘πŸ‚πŸπŸŽƒ and fully gather our energy that will help us through the winter and into 2022.

Are you willing to explore your senses and trust Nature to be your guide?


If so, join us. πŸ’š

****************


This is a 3 hour event so we don't have to rush. We will be sitting and sharing in each others company while we eat and learn about Samhain. We will also be walking very slowly and gently around the grounds. Less than 0.25 miles and very flat, so we will really be connecting around the fire πŸ”₯ with the land πŸ’š the air 🌬 and the water πŸ’§ and each other 🧑


The weather is hard to predict this far out but right now the forecast shows temperatures in the low 60's/upper 50's and light wind. Maybe a slight chance of very light showers. Perfect for spending time with Mother Nature on this Fall evening πŸŽƒπŸ§‘


Please wear comfortable and warm clothing and shoes 🧀πŸ§₯πŸ§¦πŸ‘– πŸ₯Ύ


Dress in costume if you wish πŸ‘» but please keep your faces uncovered so we can see and hear you fully πŸ˜ƒ


Bring a memento of a passed loved one to be placed at the community "ancestral altar" (photo, object) πŸ–Ό πŸ“ΏπŸŽž You will be taking these back home with you.


Bring a flashlight for your comfort πŸ”¦ Small battery operated candles will be available for loan.


Bring a camp-type chair πŸ• as we will be sitting to eat and listen to stories, or simply bring a blanket. But a chair might be helpful for sitting and eating.


Paper dinnerware WILL BE provided 🍽


Our time together will be spent pausing & connecting with Nature and practicing proven ways to settle in, get centered & grounded, and help alleviate some of our stresses and anxieties by learning to become more present. More Mindful.


We will end with "council practice" where we will reconnect and share our Experiences with each other. πŸ§˜πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ§˜β€β™‚οΈ
