The Sacred Well, 536 Grand Avenue, Oakland, 510-444-9355
Donations gratefully accepted, No RSVP needed
It’s time to celebrate the annual Aphrodisia Festival and Paint It Gold Day!
As part of the ritual gathering, we will have a Paint it Gold Fundraiser, where you can bring items that you'd like to dedicate, and you can paint them gold! We will also ceremonially bathe our Aphrodite statue.
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.
