$10-$20 donation requested

Wisdom & Compassion, a temple dedicated to Kuan Yin & Tara, welcomes you to join us as we explore how we can create environments and actions of love, harmony, creativity, sensuality, and joy, and then share them with others. What blessings do we each have to bestow upon the world? At this ritual, we honor our ceremonial May King, Queen, and Nymph.

This year, members of the Cosmic Messengers devotional group, dedicated to Hermes, will be offering Transportation Blessings outside in the courtyard before the ritual from 5:00-7:00PM. Arrive a bit early and make a magical amulet for you bicycle, car, or other mode of transportation!  The Cosmic Messengers will be providing blank bumper stickers and colorful pens, charms and beading wire, and other crafting supplies.  Get creative and receive the blessing of Hermes on your life’s journey!

Finding Guidance Through the Labyrinth of Life

The Cosmic Messengers are leading a guided Labyrinth Meditation and Hermes Devotional on Saturday, July 11, at 5:00PM, meeting at The Sacred Well and then proceeding to the Lake Merritt Earth Maze.

Life, with all of its twists and turnings, its sudden reversals and apparent contradictions, often feels like a Labyrinth. As soon as I think I have learned one of life’s great lessons, I am confronted with the lesson which seems to be its opposite.  I may think I am headed in the right directions, and then I see that everyone who seems to know what they are doing is headed in the opposite direction. But maybe we are just in different places along the same twisting path, and the opposition is an illusion.  Maybe our convoluted journeys are all leading us to the same fundamental truths we each hold at our center.
