From the Bush Witch: Samhain Practices; embracing your beliefs & environment into your practice
Mindi Burford, Village Elder
Samhain is a Celtic festival that marks the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter. It is a time when the veil between the physical world and the spirit world is believed to be thin, allowing for communication with ancestors and other supernatural beings. Explore Samhain traditions with a unique focus on how personal beliefs and environment can influence these practices. This class explores Samhain traditions old, new, and those entrenched in cultural heritage as offered by Mindi, an elder, who lives in Bush Alaska. Surrounded by native Alaskan traditions, wildlife, and magical beings, her Samhain practices have manifested to embrace her environment. This class offers how you can embrace your beliefs and environment, and incorporate all into your Samhain practices. We will explore different ways for you to create your own Samhain traditions along with a time for Q and A discussions during the class.
