The SCPN Presents
Goddess Gatherings an introduction to an ongoing exploration offered
by Phoenix LeFae and Root
Goddess Gatherings - An Introduction
At their Goddess Gatherings Phoenix and Root talk about the specific culture of the Goddess they are working with. There is more to developing a relationship with a Goddess than reading on the internet what She might be all about. Developing a relationship with a Goddess means getting to know Her beyond what has been written by modern Pagans. During this presentation we will be honoring the Egptian Goddess Bast.
Any Goddess is more than just an idea or an archetype. She is an energy that has grown and developed over time. Where is Her origin? What were the lives of the first peoples who worshiped Her like? The more of the picture that you can fill in, the deeper your understanding of this Deity will be.
May 16th - Rhiannon
August 29th - Morgan LeFae
October 10th - Cerridwen
Phoenix LeFae is an eclectic witch who walks with the Fae and sings with the Old Ones. By day she is a professional tarot reader, rootworker, writer and ritualist, who has been studying witchcraft and magic for over twenty years. She loves myth, stories, and Goddesses, which is partly what lead to the development of the Goddess of the Month Gatherings. Her lifelong pursuit of learning about the Goddesses of the world has infiltrated all aspects of her life, leading her to help others make their own connection between the magical to the mundane. Although Phoenix is an initiate and student in several traditions, her love of the Goddess is what fuels her work. She holds an uncanny amount of mythological stories in her head and share these at each of our Goddess Gatherings.
Root is a witch in the Reclaiming Tradition who loves to learn stories - fairy tales, mythology, and folk tales have much to teach us about ourselves and our modern culture. Connecting with the Goddesses from these tales and bringing them to the community helps us to reconnect with each other and with a deeper part of our selves. Root is an LGBTQI activist who lives and speaks openly about their identity in the hopes that it empowers those around them to speak their truth. Root is an active member of the North Bay Reclaiming community, co-facilitating public rituals to celebrate the turning of the Wheel.
To add to the divine spirit of the evening, there will be a potluck dinner. We ask that you bring a dish and/or non-alcoholic brew to share that serves 4-6 people. Let's treat ourselves to a good meal. Please bring your own place setting. There will be hot water available for tea.We ask non-members to make a donation of $10 - $5 to help us cover operating costs. No one turned away for lack of funds.
