Come Celebrate Mabon, the Autumnal Equinox with us this Saturday!


The Witches of Enchantments are celebrating the Sabbat of Mabon for the Autumnal Equinox this Saturday, September 19th.
The ritual will start at 5 pm followed by a pot luck feast, followed by walking the lit labyrinth. There is no charge for this and this is an open circle, meaning anyone can attend. If you wish to participate please bring a dish for the pot luck feast that can be shared with others. If you would like to help construct the labyrinth please be at Enchantments by 4 pm, so the construction can start. 


It does take some time and effort to construct the labyrinth but with teamwork, akin to coven work it is a fun and rewarding experience. Then walking the labyrinth brings many wondrous insights to those that walk it. 

A Labyrinth is traditionally walked to help the walker to do inner spiritual work. Perhaps a problem is concerning them and they need a solution, or a desire to understand a puzzle in their life may be present. They may wish to get to a deeper, more introspective place in their lives or to simply quiet the 'noise' of day to day living that may get in the way of them living their lives fully and spiritually complete. 

You first enter the Labyrinth with the situation you desire help with at the forefront of your mind. You walk the Labyrinth slowly and with care, thinking about your situation as you tread carefully, slowly making your way to the center.  Once at the center there will be small pieces of paper where you can write a request of the Goddess to help you with, and light it in the candle flame and allow it to flash and disappear.  Then you turn and slowly make your way back through the Labyrinth until you exit it. 

A couple of people can be in the Labyrinth at the same time, but everyone needs to be very quiet and respectful of others experience. Walking the Labyrinth can be very rewarding and a changing experience. 

Labyrinths have been used by many cultures for thousands of years. Some you may find are permanent, made of stone or greenery and some are temporary, built and used and dismantled. 

I hope you can attend our celebration this Saturday and learn what mysteries the Labyrinth may hold for you. 

Peace and Happiness
