The Festival of Prophecy and Initiation

The Home of Truth Spiritual Center (in the Main Hall)
1300 Grand Street
Alameda, CA 94501

$10-$20 donation requested

Please join Come As You Are Pagan Congregation as we celebrate the turning of the wheel, emerging from the darkness to bring forth growth within ourselves, our community and our world. We will be honoring Persephone, and the changes  she brings within each new experience in this life. She is new green shoot, sprouting up from the fertile void, just as this community is rebirthing itself anew. During our festival, we will be prophesying for the Wheel of the Year ahead.  

This ritual marks the formal Dedication of our Aspirant class; talented and focused practitioners now completing their year of study. We will also be honoring our new Council members and Advanced Wildflower Initiates. 

Please feel free to bring drums, rattles, shakers, and anything you wish to charge on the altar. Clearly labelled contributions to our cakes and ale offerings are also welcome.

However, there are individuals who choose to become committed members of the CAYA community, as well as those who wish to take the preparatory steps required to becoming a CAYA Priest/ess/x. Those interested in becoming committed members of CAYA, or who may wish to ultimately study for Priest/ess/xhood with us, are invited to apply for our 2016 Aspirant Program.

CAYA Local Aspirants meet one Sunday per month from 3-5 pm in a local Bay Area home. Classes involve personal check-ins, discussions about CAYA's core training subjects, and hands-on magical and ritual activities. Each student is asked to make a $10 donation per class.
