a shared Full Moon Circle for All Genders

$10 donation requested
CAYA’s Full Moon Circles will now be meeting at The Home of Truth, where we started holding our Sabbat rituals in 2013. For 2014, some of our Full Moon Circles will be divided, with men and women meeting separately, and some will be shared, with all genders celebrating together. Each ritual will be created by a group of CAYA Clergy who share dedications to a particular deity or set of deities. We are delighted to share our ongoing evolution with you!
Please note new location!
Rite of the Dancing Flowers
presented by The Bloodroot Honey Priestess Tribe of CAYA Coven
Saturday, May 3, 7:00PM
Terra’s Temple, 3051 Adeline Street, Berkeley
$20 donation requested
Clothing is optional, this ritual is for self-identified women
“Note: This ritual will be addressing bodies, the vulva, and general sexuality that some may find uncomfortable.
It is not often that we, as women, are able to celebrate and revel in our bodies and sexuality, rarer still to do so on our own terms. Tonight we celebrate the body of woman. With our sisters we stand, each perfect in our bodies, reflecting the beauty of the Goddess upon the world. In the safety of sisterhood, under the watch of the Goddess, we break free of the taboos and claim our right to pleasure on our terms. Ours to boundary or flaunt as we see fit.
Join us in revelrous dance, as we honor the goddess Hathor and the divinity of woman!
Lady of the Vulva, goddess of beauty, love, and sex… in the respite of her golden gaze we celebrate. In joy and delight we dance for our pleasure and raise our spirits in song and dance, her sacred means.
At this night’s rite we will be using a song written by our amazingly talented sister Szmeralda Shanel.
Important Note: We will be using incense during this ritual.
