Goddess Sabbat - 2016 Rite of the Sacred Maiden

The Bloodroot Honey Priestess Tribe of CAYA Coven welcomes all self-identified women to…

The Rite of the Sacred Maiden
Friday, January 29, 2015
7:00 pm (no one will be admitted after circle cast)


Home of Truth Cottage
1300 Grand Street, Alameda, CA 94501
(located behind the main Chapel. Please use the sidewalk around the main chapel to get to the Cottage.)

$20 donation requested


This is a Clothing-optional ritual for self-identified women only

The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to remember who we were when life was new to us, who we truly are even now, when all the layers of identity assigned to us by others are lifted. Join us as we honor Psyche - the true inner self, the Maiden who remembers that "I can do anything! I can be anyone! I can go anywhere!"

Together, we will laugh and dance our way into our own inner selves to retrieve and re-affirm our freedom, along with happy memories from our youth. (It’s never too late to create new happy memories!) We will emerge triumphant, empowered, and free to enjoy being our true selves!


What to bring:
For all Goddess Sabbats, please bring a blanket (any kind of blanket is OK) to sit on or wrap yourself in whether or not you plan to disrobe. You never know when the mood to enjoy the nakedness may strike!
