Hey Everyone! We are having a change in our activity for tomorrow's Temple. Manea had a conflict, so now Yeshe Rabbit and Quetzal are leading this month's event. We will create love candles and decorate them. Quetzal will serenade everyone with love songs (playing guitar and singing). People can either bring their own candle to decorate, or purchase one at the Sacred Well. We will be providing stickers and various art materials for people to decorate, but people are also welcome to bring their own.

Yay Love!

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.
