While many know October 31 as Hallowe’en, this date is also known as Samhain – a Pagan religious festival originating from an ancient Celtic spiritual tradition. Arran will introduce Samhain and a Celtic perspective on the Four Directions, exploring the gifts the directions can offer to sustain us through the winter.
You’re encouraged to dress in costume!
