Join us as we celebrate the ancient festival of Adonia, where Aphrodite mourns the loss of her love Adonis. Aurora will lead us in this Temple of Aphrodite 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.
