Day of the Living & Dead

A calling of the witches and sorceress, you’re being summoned to battle the dark forces. As the veils are thin to the after world and as our Halloween falls on a rare Hunters Blue Full Moon, it’s vital that we gather to remain in power. The Samhain tradition is of honouring the death and life cycle, we aim to do this through sharing what the land has to offer us and bringing in ceremony. Practicing these traditions brings us into deep relations to the earth allowing us to live in harmony with the land we inhabit. This is a celebratory event, we honour the spirits with crafting wild arts, cooking in the elements and giving gratitude to the death that brings life.

A invite for children to venture into the haunted labyrinth through the way of the land.

Elemental Collective
The Elemental Collective seeks to create a harmonious culture of humans living in attunement with the natural community of plants, animals and elemental powers. Through offering nature education workshops, retreats & culinary events, art, healing, ceremony and celebratory events we strive to inspire further generations of land stewards and community co-operatives by sharing the knowledge needed to sustain and thrive as human beings. Honoring all life forces & fostering a deeper commitment with the Earth, we attend to the interwoven threads of personal, community and bioregional relationships. By forming a Co-operative we are bringing together the diverse gifts, knowledge and experience of our team, the Elemental Guardians, to purchase the land we are living on, in order to bring a much needed alternative project of ‘doing business differently’ than most of the current models that are in crisis. It is a visionary task, and there are countless challenges to surmount, but the steadfast hearts of our fellowship are up for the adventure!
We endeavour to honour the land and its people by strengthening our relationship and responsibilities to the land. We acknowledge that we live and work on unceded Coast Salish Territories.
