Saturday, Oct. 26 -  Samhain moving to Gaia House in Carbondale

The weather looks to be cold on Saturday, October 26, so SIPA is moving Samhain to Gaia House in Carbondale.    

This is a public event open to all ages.  The centerpiece of the annual Samhain ritual is the ancestral altar.  It has been a tradition since SIPA's founding to pay homage to those who have passed beyond the veil.  

Gathering starts at 4 p.m  A potluck will follow at 5 p.m. followed by the ritual at 7 p.m.  As always, SIPA rituals are free and open to the public.  All ages are welcome.  

Gaia House is located at 913 South Illinois Avenue (the corner of Grand and US-51) in Carbondale.  Please utilize the public parking lot across the street (south) of Gaia House,  From US-51 going south, take a left turn at the next light after the intersection of US-51 and Grand Avenue.  From US-51 north, take a right away from the entrance to Southern Illinois University,.
