Reminder: Festival of Bliss & Blessings PDX 2017

Come As You Are and be welcome to...

The Festival of Bliss & Blessings
presented by High Priestesses Yeshe Rabbit, Iris RedRaven, and Rowan Nightshade

Saturday, April 29, 2017
8:00-10:00PM

hosted at The Sacred Well, 7927 SE 13th Avenue, Portland, OR

suggested donation $10-$20, no one turned away for lack of funds

We welcome the Greek goddess Aphrodite and her Graces: Beauty, Joy, and Splendor, in our celebration of this season of blossoming!

Spring always returns, and with it our ability to stretch toward love and beauty as we witness the upwelling of life all around us. We are the children of love and we create splendor wherever we go! Our bodies are divine vessels with which we manifest the gifts of the Graces!

Come and receive the blessings of Aphrodite and pass through the balefires to bring your desires to fruition!

Feel free to bring drink or food to share, or flowers for the altar.

At this ritual, we will crown our ceremonial May King, Queen, and Nymph.
