Sabbat School: Lughnasadh (Lammas) (Online)

Witches and pagans across the world celebrate annual holidays called sabbats. A Novel Idea invites you on a year-long journey detailing the histories, mythologies, and rituals of eight common “witch celebrations.” Each class is taught two weeks prior to the day. This way, attendees can use this knowledge gained to celebrate the holiday with the knowledge and prepared ritual pieces! The series has optional add-on ritual kits that align to the classwork and help with ritual preparation.


Lughnasadh, or Lammas, initiates the harvest season. This sabbat takes place July 31-August 1 each year. Join us on July 14, 2021 to learn the details of Lughnasadh history and ritual. We will focus on academic understandings of the holiday and pair it with divination, herbs, spell work, and other modes of popular celebration.


This course will also focus on the creation of the witch’s altar and the offering of deity-based worship. We will discuss the most common uses, pieces, and reasons behind a witch having an altar or altars. As Lughnasadh acts as a perfect time for tool gathering, attendees will learn of different ways altars are crafted and utilized in various spellwork and worship (if part of a witch’s practice).
