During this Samhain season, take time to honor the Mighty Dead by attending the rite to Honor Your Ancestors at The Wandering Owl, 139 N. Jackson Street, Jackson, Michigan http://www.thewanderingowl.com/ , a short hour's drive from the heart of Detroit, but a sojourn into the Summerland.
The last of the Harvests, or Death Festivals, is upon us here in the Land of the Fresh Water Seas, and as the Blood Moon approaches, this is the time to remember, and commune, with those who have traveled beyond the Veil. They are close to us now, as it is thin this time of approaching New Year on the Wheel.
"Find out how to create and use an Ancestor Altar to help them to help you. Please bring four stones from the place you live, and a photo of an Ancestor" and take the journey.
James Stovall is the owner of store, and the real thing when it comes to magickal and spiritual chops. Any event with his hand in it is sure to be soul stirring.....pun intended. Shaman is thrown around a lot, but in this case, it is apt.
You may be familiar with him from " InTouch with James Stovall and Pagan Spirit, Shamanic Life" on Body Mind Spirit Radio http://www.bodymindspiritRADIO.com. There, he hosts a call in program where guests can ask questions, participate in discussions, and generally experience a chat with an pagan leader and teacher without the extra inflated ego that is often rampant in such shows.
This is the time to petition and speak with those elders who have shared time with you, as well as some ancestors who you may have just met in passing. They are ready to guide you, to aid you, and protect you. They only await your acknowledgement and permission.
Although if you are like the author, they sometimes do what they want if you just are too stubborn to listen to good sense. Ever had an invisible spanking? It is best to remember that your mama is still Mama, no matter what state of existence she is in at the time.
Registration is required no later than 24 hours before the start of the class, since a minimum of three persons is required. To do so, please contact them by telephone at 517-782-2780.
The rite is $15.00, and begins at 5:00 PM and is anticipated to last until 6:00 PM.
