The Mt Shasta Goddess Temple celebrates our annual Aphrodite & Oshun weekend! This will be the 12th year of Yeshe’s annual Oshun celebration, and the Temple’s 2nd year of honouring Aphrodite alongside her. Take a look at what we have planned:
Friday, May 3 at 6pm: Paint It Gold! Please bring a favourite poem (by you or by someone else) and a household item, a thrift store treasure, a statue, or some other item to The Sacred Well, where we will have gold paint, cookies, tea, and wine. We will read poetry aloud to one another as we paint our items gold in a fun celebration of beauty, fanciness, and creativity.
Saturday, May 4 at 6pm: Aphrodite’s Bath
For a small donation of $10, you are invited to create delicious bath salts with herbs, biodegradeable glitter, and scented oils. The bath we will be mixing is called Barefoot Priestess, and it can be used for a whole body soak or for foot baths. It smells fresh, clean, and delightful!
Saturday, May 4 at 8pm: Bee Goddess Ceremony
Honouring Aphrodite, Oshun, and the spirit of the Bee. With honey, flowers, and song we will be celebrating the fertility, sensuality, abundance, pleasure, attraction, and passion of the Goddesses who bring us all that makes life worth living. Participants are encouraged to wear bright colours and bring a rattle to this ceremony. Donation: $10
Sunday, 12 noon: Oshun’s River Ramble.
Participants are encouraged to wear white and to bring flowers, honey, and oranges as offerings. We will meet at The Sacred Well and take a jaunt to the Sacramento River to honor the Orisha of love and beauty. Each attendee will receive a divination with cowrie shells to offer guidance for the coming year. Donation: $23
All of the events listed above will be at The Sacred Well, 5816 Dunsmuir Ave in Dunsmuir. RSVP by calling (530)500-5935. Hope you can come!
