Donations gratefully accepted, No RSVP needed

We invite ourselves to open like flowers to bloom. We invoke Aphrodite Aprilis, the Goddess of spring, flowers, & opening. 

Molly Blue Dawn wrote this lovely blog post about Aprilis, and will be leading this month's meeting:

Please arrive a few minutes before 8:00PM. Feel free to bring flowers, wine, or fruit offerings for the altar and to share.

The Temple of Aphrodite in Oakland was founded in 2010 at The Sacred Well, where Priest/esses maintain a monthly liturgy and support space for those who wish to experience the mysteries of the goddess in Her many forms.

Our monthly liturgy is an exploration and celebration of the many ways love, beauty, desire and pleasure shape our decisions, choices, actions, and lives.

We research and study historical aspects of Aphrodite, such as praise hymns, epithets, and classical symbolism. We also recognize Aphrodite in the world around us today, in Her contemporary guises with modern sensibilities.
