I think this upcoming tele/web ritual series might be something you would like to be part of. We did a fall series and it was quite special how people came together as a community.
I have a Winter Solstice Gift offer for you!
Samhain and the Origin of Halloween
It's the Ancient Celtic New Year when the veil between the worlds is thin.

Many cultures around the world hold festivals and religious observations around the time of Samhain (SOW-in), November 1st; celebrated on evening of October 31st, to mark the end of the light time of the year and the beginning of the dark of winter.
It's the ancient Celtic New Year and the time when it is thought the Veil between the world's is thinnest. Honoured relatives, troubled spirits, Gods/Goddesses, fairies and other creatures of uncertain nature mingle freely on Samhain Eve.

This is a modern interpretation of an ancient holiday. It's the Gaelic May Day festival melded with the wiccan observance of a blend of more German and English customs. The Welsh have a similar festival.
Beltaine is half way between spring equinox and summer solstice. It's one of the four seasonal festivals. In the southern hemisphere, modern day pagans celebrate on November 1st.
