Remembered at Samhain 

Since records began Samhain has been considered a night of occult power, when the veil between the unseen world and ours is at its thinnest, a night when the spirits of our departed are free to roam. As such, Samhain has always been considered the best time to honour our ancestors and other departed souls. Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, George Knowles, Angie Buchanan and many others in the Pagan community have been working together to construct a list of contemporary departed “Pagan Founders, Pioneers, Elders and Others”, people who have passed over during the last century and whose dedication and inspiration has helped to shape the foundations of our beliefs to-date.  Please all light a candle this Samhain and let us remember them.
