Imbolc Night Remembrance Ritual
February 1 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Imbolc Night (February 1) traditionally marks the end of the dark winter season and the beginning of the path toward spring. With those natural markers in mind we’re gathering at the end of the beginning of a new year to remember things we’ve lost and hopefully make some peace.
Some of our Bay Area Satanists have said goodbye forever to friends and family recently. Others are grappling with personal losses of other kinds, or longstanding challenges in day to day lives.
While other religions console people with hazy promises about benevolent (but absent) deities and vaguely imagined other worlds, we’ll confront our problems with compassion, self-expression, honesty, and mutual support. Afterward, we’ll celebrate and lift our spirits with a potluck dinner and drinks. We are also gathering food donations for Monday Night Mission East Oakland; please direct any questions about our canned food drive to Josh (email@example.com).
Suggested donation (to cover venue rental): $10 – we will never turn anyone away for lack of funds
