We are the Southern Illinois Pagan Alliance (SIPA.)  

Since its founding in 1998, Southern Illinois Pagan Alliance (SIPA) has grown from a small group to a community of Pagans, Wiccans, and followers of other Earth-based spiritual traditions.  Over the years, we have expanded in size as well as made connections to other organizations. We have built on our goal of educating our non-Pagan neighbors by becoming a visible and positive presence in the region. We hope to continue to serve the Pagan community of Southern Illinois and neighboring regions for years to come.

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,.
