Main Ritual

At FPG Samhain Keepers of the Earth will lead a Rite to reconnect with our Honored Ancestors and Beloved Kin who now live beyond the veil. We shall reconnect with the people both familial and extraordinary who touched our lives, influencing who we have become, shaping our visions and our paths. We shall honor these Ancestors as our heroes. For what is a hero? To us a hero is someone whose impact on us cannot be measured.

There is a Yoruba proverb that says “We stand on the shoulders of our Ancestors.” According to St. Augustine, the meaning of the Latin word for religion means “to reconnect.”

This ritual of reconnection shall utilize the power of a Druid ceremony, the essential magic of witchcraft, and the ancestral veneration of Asatru. Everyone who participates will have the opportunity to reconnect with their Heroes beyond the veil as we remember all Honored Ancestors with devotion and love.
