Program Description:

Samhain: A time of Reflection with Karen Marsh

Pagans celebrate the festival of Samhain November 1st as the third and final harvest celebration of their year. This time falls in the middle of the “dark” season, between the Fall Equinox and the Winter Solstice, when the days are getting shorter and the nights are growing longer. Karen will discuss the meaning of Samhain and how Pagans use this time to reflect, and connect with their ancestors of blood and of spirit (including spirits of the land) as the year winds down and all things turn toward rest and rejuvenation.

Presenter: Karen Marsh is a practicing Druid and Unitarian Universalist who has been involved with Pagan groups in North Carolina and New York for many years.
