On the tail of Valentines Day, we thought it would be juicy material to look at fantasy and romanticization. We're asking how does fantasy serve - or not serve us? What do you long for? Does this prevent you from being present with what you have? Or is this a part of you that needs to be awakened?

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.
