Pagan News and Views Since 1998
Now is the time of the changing of the year. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere the Sabbat of Samhain brings the change from Summer to Winter. For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere the Sabbat of Beltane brings the change from Winter to Summer. Regardless of which Sabbat you are celebrating, the Veil between the world is thinner at this time of change.
Correllian First Priestess and Witch School Board Member Stephanie Leon Neal offers you her greetings for the Samhain season. Hear her message here: https://youtu.be/YPls829DwEU
Samhain is a time to honor our Ancestors, whether by blood or affinity, and to reflect upon our own mortality. Each year many people cross over to join the Ancestors, whose loved ones will honor them at this time. This year one of our greatest leaders has joined the Ancestors: The Beloved Raymond Buckland. Please remember him in your Samhain celebrations. I am pleased to say that you can see Blv. Raymond at Magick TV at https://youtu.be/2w1Cuo0kngQ and https://youtu.be/skuNxbKRGok, and hear a memorial broadcast at the Pagans Tonight Radio Network led by Selena Fox and featuring many major Pagan leaders at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/witchschool/2017/10/04/ptrn--nature-fo...
For me this Samhain as most Sabbats has been a time for many ceremonies at many Temples. One of the most interesting this year was a Samhain service at the Buckman Bridge Unitarian Universalist Church where I participated in a mixed ceremony with other members from the Northeast Florida Pagan Leadership Coalition. You can see the full ceremony here: https://youtu.be/vfsb6-UP0rk
We have also been live streaming from a number of events this season including Pagan Pride events and the Correllian Lustration. If you missed the live streaming you can still see the videos at http://www.facebook.com/TheWitchSchool
At Witch School we have created a wide range of classes to help you learn about Witchcraft, Paganism, and Magic from many different perspectives. But we also have a commitment to bringing you video and audio materials through http://www.MagickTV.com and http://www.PagansTonight.com so that you can see and hear personalities and events that you might not have the opportunity to experience in person. We do this because we have made a commitment to make the magical world accessible and to help everyone who wishes to learn have the opportunity to do so: anyone, anyplace, anytime.
However we can only do this because of your support. Witch School memberships are one of our main means of support, and are a great investment -and until the end of the year you can get a Lifetime Membership for $49.99, a price affordable to almost anyone. A Witch School Lifetime Membership really will last a lifetime and you can get yours at http://www.classes.witchschool.com/payment.asp or buy one for a friend or loved one! For books and other items, you can also visit http://www.CorrStore.co or http://www.CorrellianPublishing.com
Blessings to all!
