Morgana's Chamber 2nd Annual Samhain Dumb Supper
presented by Morgana SidheRaven
and the Cauldron of Transformation coven
at Morgana's Chamber Saturday 29 Oct, 7p!
During the Samhain season, the veil between the worlds is very thin, making contact with our beloved deceased friends, relatives, and beloved pets very easy. The "Dumb Supper" is a ritual performed traditionally at Halloween during which spirits are invited to attend a feast specially prepared featuring their favourite foods. Traditionally, the entire feast is cooked and served in complete silence. We will be performing a modified version of this ritual to celebrate Samhain.
This is strictly a ticket only event. Tickets are $9 each, cash only. If you would like to attend, you must purchase tickets in advance. You may call ahead and place your name on the reservation list, but must pay for your ticket by 6pm on the day of the event. If you aren't on our reservation list, and have not paid for your ticket in full by that time, you will not be allowed to attend -- no exceptions. If you are interested in attending, please call the shop immediately to be placed on the reservation list. We will be closing the list at a certain point if it becomes too crowded -- we will try our best to accomodate everyone, but if you want to make sure you have a space, we suggest you pay for your ticket in full, in advance. For this ritual we must depend on your full cooperation.
The following is required for each attendee: Please bring a small offering of something edible for your invited "guest" (spirit). Keep in mind what your invited guest would most like; what would entice them to make the visit from the spirit realm? At no time are you to eat the offering. You will be given a plate, write your name underneath, so that you may take your offering home. It can be left on the altar until after Samhain, or left outside under a tree, or where a homeless person or stray animal might take it. Keep in mind that your offering should fit on a dessert sized plate.
Remember: A "Dumb Supper" is carried out in complete silence. No speaking will be allowed other than that of Morgana and members of the Cauldron of Transformation coven, who will be directing the ritual. During the invitation and feasting portion of the ritual, even they will be silent. You will be asked in advance to please turn off all beepers, mobile phones, any electronic device that may go off and become a distraction during the ritual.
At 7pm the store will be closed for business (don't worry, if you wish to make purchases after the ritual, we will be happy to accomodate you), and you will be asked to wait outsidewhilst we prepare the room for the ritual (15 minutes at the most.) No one will be admitted after we are all back inside, the gate and door are locked -- no exceptions. If the gate is shut, please be considerate and do not attempt to gain admittance -- a Dumb Supper relies on silence and focus to set a mood condusive to spirit appearance.
Immediately following the ritual we will serve light refreshments and give everyone a chance to mingle and network. We have a private function following the ritual and the store must be cleared by 8:30p. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
