Our Lady of the Woods (OLW) is holding two events next weekend: First Friday Pagan Dinner, 6 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2 and Samhain Sabbat, 6 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 4.
First Friday Pagan Dinner
Everyone’s invited to join OLW members for dinner at the Pyramid Cafe in Los Alamos at 6 p.m. Friday. Anyone interested in paganism, Wicca or OLW is welcome.
What a great way to learn about OLW and enjoy a delicious meal. These informal dinners are held the first Friday of every month.
Directions to the Pyramid Cafe: In Los Alamos located in the same lot as the Smith’s Food Center. In Los Alamos, look for the Smith’s, which sits right between Central Avenue and Trinity Drive.
Enter the lot when you see the Blue Window Bistro (on the Central side) or Daniel’s Cafe (Trinity side.) The Pyramid is at the west side of the lot, right next to the Coffee House Cafe
and the China Palace. (The Smith’s in located on the east side of the lot.)
Sunday Samhain Sabbat
Everyone’s invited to join OLW members for the Samhain Sabbat 6 p.m. Sunday.
Like Beltane, the winter sabbat of Samhain has been marked and celebrated by many cultures. It is the final harvest of the year, the animal harvest.
It is the gateway to the coming winter. With the harvests completed, the community draws together one final time to share.
Today, we associate the Samhain sabbat with our loved ones who have passed on to Summerland. We devote a space to them at our table, bringing their favorite food or drink.
On this evening, when the veil between the worlds is thin, we rely on our inner sight to divine our future. The ritual will be followed by a pot luck feast.
Directions to the Los Alamos Unitarian Church: In Los Alamos, at the corner of Trinity Drive. (or Central Avenue) and 15th Street, turn north onto 15th Street. Turn left on North Sage at the Masonic Temple.
The Unitarian Church is located between the Masonic Temple and the Mormon Church.
