Laughing Moon: A Full Moon Circle for Women
presented by CAYA Coven’s Grove of the Goddess
Saturday, August 29, 7:00PM
Sanctuary at The Home of Truth, 1300 Grand Street, Alameda
$10-$20 donation requested
CAYA Coven's Grove of the Goddess welcomes all self-identified women to join them in observing the Laughing Moon!
Join the Grove of the Goddess in honoring Aphrodite Philommeides, "Lover of Laughter." In ancient Greece, and many other cultures, there was a linkage between sacred laughter and sexuality. Come and enjoy a ritual filled with nuances, innuendos, gentle bawdy humor, and down-to-Earth sisterhood. The world can be healed with women's laughter.
Chairs will be provided. Please feel free to bring a cushion if you prefer to sit on the floor. Feel free to bring drink or food to share, or flowers for the altar.
As we continue to celebrate the harvest season, we will be collecting dry and canned food donations at all this ritual. If you are able, please bring something. This food goes to the Alameda County Community Food Bank, where it is redistributed to folks who need it.
Each year, CAYA Coven also hosts a virtual food drive to support hungry families in Alameda County. The ACCFB is a huge supplier and clearinghouse for donations, providing healthy food to smaller distribution centers throughout the area.
Follow this link https://www.vfd-accfb.org/home.aspx if you'd like to donate money in the name of CAYA. Use the drop down menu on the top right to attribute your donation to CAYA, so we can keep track. If we hit our goal of $500 (not much), we will be providing over $3000 worth of food to our friends and neighbors. Let's blow that goal out of the water (even if you don't live here)!
"For every $1 contributed, we’ll provide $6 worth of healthy food to low-income children, adults and seniors in our neighborhoods. Whether a warm meal at a soup kitchen or a bag of healthy groceries from one of our Mobile Pantries, you nourish the bodies and minds of our community’s most vulnerable.
Thank you for partnering with us in our pursuit of a hunger-free community.
The Alameda County Community Food Bank"
Together, we are creating the better world we seek to live in.
