Isis Altar Building
Aug

Isis Altar Building

"I am Nature, the universal Mother, mistress of all the elements, primordial child of time, sovereign of all things spiritual, queen of the dead, queen also of the immortals, the single manifestation of all gods and goddesses that are. My nod governs the shining heights of Heaven, the wholesome sea-breezes the lamentable silences of the world below. Though I am worshipped in many aspects, known by countless names, and propitiated with all manner of different rites, yet the whole round earth venerates me. The primeval Phrygians call me Pessinuntica, Mother of the gods; the Athenians, sprung from their own soil, call me Cecropian Artemis; for the islanders of Cyprus I am Paphian Aphrodite; for the archers of Crete I am Dictynna; for the trilingual Sicilians, Stygian Proserpine; and for the Eleusinians their ancient Mother of the Corn. 

Some know me as Juno, some as Bellona of the Battles; others as Hecate, others again as Rhamnubia, but both races of Ethiopians, whose lands the morning sun first shines upon, and the Egyptians who excel in ancient learning and worship me with ceremonies proper to my godhead, call me by my true name, namely, Queen Isis."

Join Yeshe and members of the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple on Saturday, Aug 11 at 6pm to build an altar to ancient Egyptian Goddess Isis, Goddess of August in the Temple. We will be making "wishing boats" from natural materials that will sit on the altar for the month of August, and at the end of the month we will sail the boats on the McCloud River.

This event is free and open to all.

The Witch's Garden: Crystal Facial Tonic

The Witch's Garden: Crystal Facial Tonic

The Witch's Garden is a series of monthly classes offered by herbalist Yeshe Matthews. Tracing folklore, family recipes, and wisdom from those who came before us, this group takes on the responsibility of keeping the simple ways of natural healing alive. Together, we study, share, and craft recipes for tonics, liniments, teas, tinctures, and baths, among other, more esoteric methods. Our monthly gathering is an opportunity to learn new recipes and methods in a hands-on way, while communing with other Earth-lovers, herb gardeners, and self-healers. 

July 12, 7pm
This month's topic: Crystal Facial Tonic

During this hands-on class, each participant will make a cooling, soothing skincare spray using all-natural ingredients. These spritzes will help you get through the hot days and cool you off as you sit out on the sun-baked earth watching the night for shooting stars. Each spray will include crystal chips to help you bring the energies of the stones and their properties into your self-care routine.
Cost: $20 (includes gathering plus all materials)

Instructor: Yeshe Matthews has been a folk herbalist for over 20 years, beginning with a personal study of Culpepper's Complete Herbal, later becoming a student of Rosemary Gladstar. She has been a frequent teacher at the Northern California Women's Herbal Symposium, as well as offering her Witch's Garden classes for over a decade to students in the Bay Area.

Baba Yaga Altar Building
Jul

6:00 PM18:00

Baba Yaga Altar Building

The Sacred Well is the sponsor of the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple, a living mandala of devotional activity for the divine feminine in her many forms. In our shop, we host a large altar created by the Temple, which features a new face of the goddess each month.

In July, the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple is honoring Baba Yaga, the Bone Mother of Slavic myth. She is the  tipping point between medicine and poison. She is the wild and untamable one who cackles with abandon as she crosses the sky in her mortar, steering with her pestle. She is the last sheaf of wheat or rye or barley left standing in the field.

Join Temple Priestess Yeshe to dismantle June's altar and set up the Baba Yaga altar for the month of July. During our altar building, we will learn more about Baba Yaga, drink a cool herbal tea, and call upon the Bony-Legged One to help us thresh the grain of wisdom from our life lessons. 

The event is open to all and free of charge.

Women in White Walk for Peace

Women in White Walk for Peace

On June 30 at 9:30 am, the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple invites women of peace and their harmonious companions to gather at Parker Plaza in Mt Shasta dressed in head-to-toe white clothing and wearing comfortable walking shoes in any color. 

We will process from Parker Plaza to City Park in silent contemplation of how we can each bring more peace into our lives and the world. When we arrive at the headwaters of the Sacramento River, we will chant OM MANI PADME HUM in a brief ceremony to the waters for the purpose of offering peace and healing to ourselves, each other, the land, and all of its inhabitants. Afterwards, everyone is welcome to stick around to have lunch together, then we will walk back to town as we wish.

Please bring your own picnic lunch and something to sit on, water bottle, and any comfort items you will need.

If the walk is not possible for you, please arrive at City Park at 10:30 to join in the festivities and luncheon without the walk. Meet near the headwaters. There are seating areas nearby if it is not possible for you to stand during the ceremony.

All over the world, wearing white clothes is a symbol of the sacred. In Nigeria, white cloth is considered an honor to the spirits. In China, white is a color of solemnity and reverence for the dead. In Latin America, wearing white to church or on holy days is respectful. And in the US, white is associated with Spring, the rites of marriage, and the first wave of feminists who opened the door for women to vote. To see a crowd gathered to pray, chant, or honor the divine while wearing white is a visually moving experience. This event is an opportunity for our Temple and surrounding community to create a living, breathing, moving peace painting, to help us all create indelible memories of the commitments we are willing to make to further the cause of peace in the world.

If you have any questions about this event, please message us and we will get back to you. Feel free to share this invitation and join us! No cost to attend, though we will be gathering donations to give to the Winnemem Wintu tribe for their work as water protectors.

Crystal Wisdom Circle

Last Friday of the month, join Yeshe Matthews for the Crystal Wisdom Circle, a gathering of crystal, gem, and mineral enthusiasts who want to know more about the practical and healing uses of crystals. For one hour each month we explore one topic related to crystals, their physical and metaphysical properties, their lore, and their uses in sacred activities and healing. Yeshe has been working with crystals and minerals for over 20 years, and enjoys sharing tips from her personal experience as well as historical research about their uses.

June 29, 7pm
The month's topic: Building Crystal Grids.
For centuries, and across cultures, geometric shapes have been used as a basis for healing and energizing the body, mind, and spirit. From mandalas to labyrinths, these sacred arrays have provided people with beauty fo the eyes and well-being in the spirit. This month, we will create a healing grid to help with bringing forth art, creativity, and new ideas.

Pop-Up Boutique - Le Salon - Berkeley

SACREDSALON.jpg

Hail Aphrodite! Come get your beauty on at Le Salon in Berkeley on Feb 24 with a Sacred Well pop-up boutique! Yeshe will be offering readings and Albert will have crystals and potions on hand for you to browse and enjoy. We plan to have several of our classic fragrance profiles available, as well as some brand new offerings in our line. We will also be back from the Tucson Gem & Mineral Show with lots of crystals, jewelry, and gem goodies.

If you want to make a day of it, you can schedule kick-ass beauty services with Le Salon owner Tiffany Raylene, a dynamo world-renown hair stylist. Check out her shop philosophy and the photo gallery below, or scroll down to schedule your in-person reading with Yeshe:

Do you miss the days when getting your hair done wasn’t so much like a visit to an impersonal hair factory? We do too! At Le Salon, we want to get back to the original spirit of the French word “salon”—as a “living room” or a place for gathering neighbors. A place where you can kick up your heels and re-paint your day in the blush tones of a chilled glass of rosé. Where you can strike up a conversation with an interesting stranger or catch up with your bestie.  Beyond offering full hair service, we love bridging the gap between beauty, well-being, and bringing people together to create a story of their own.

 

If you'd like a reading with Yeshe on the 24th, it would be best to schedule ahead of time. Some walk-ins might be available, but don't leave it to chance.
