Yule Ritual and Winter Craft Fair!

Yule Ritual and Winter Craft Fair
Hosted by Luna Circa and South Bay Circles
Saturday, December 15th, 2018

Come Celebrate the Winter Solstice with us! We will be finding our inner beast to face the darkness.

A Special Event this Yule – We will be holding a Winter Craft Fair of local Artists before the ritual.

Craft Fair: 3PM-6PM
Ritual: Gather at 7PM, ritual at 7:30PM.

Location:
Odd Fellows Cupertino 70 Lodge
20589 Homestead Rd
Cupertino, CA 95014
(Site is wheelchair accessible.)

Please bring a dish to share for the potluck and a suggested donation of $10-$20 (No one will ever be turned away for lack of funds.).

Ritual & Potluck Info:

Ritual –

Do not show up late, it is very disruptive.

Cell phones should be turned off before ritual begins.

Respect the working tools of others; do not touch any items without the owner’s permission.

All participants should conduct themselves in a manner respectful of the Gods, your HPS & HP, as well as all the other people in attendance.

A circle is participatory. Once the rite begins, focus and follow the direction of the HPS/HP, the time for talking and socializing is over.

Most groups have an informal segment of the circle after the ritual food and drink have been shared. This is a time to relax, discuss magickal topics, and get to know each other, share and make plans for future events. This is not the time to critique the ritual, or it’s participants.

Potluck/Feast –

Please bring food that is ready to serve.

Mark your platter/bowls/serving utensils and remember to take them with you (along with any leftovers) when you leave.

If possible, label your food for those with dietary restrictions.

Main dishes, salads, side dishes, desserts, non-alcoholic beverages to share are all welcome.

Help with the cleanup afterwards is always greatly appreciated.

 

 

 

Monthly Gatherings (Where to Meet us!)

Ducklings Lunch
Hosted by Liz

Every Tuesday
12:30PM to 2:30PM

Hobee's
4224 El Camino Real
Palo Alto, CA

The Ducklings Lunch Bunch is a group of Pagan friends who have lunch together every Tuesday. We welcome newcomers!

We talk about all sorts of stuff. Got questions? Please ask: we will answer as best we know how. And if we don't know, we'll probably have some discussion about the possible answers. Our members are active with the local Pagan community and if you're looking for a coven or other group, we can help you get connected.

We meet every Tuesday, except for the rare day when Hobee's isn't open, such as December 25. We usually have the back room to ourselves. We have a rubber duck prominently displayed so that you can find us!

We look forward to meeting you. Blessed Be!

San Jose, CA

Welcome to Mini Talks at the Moot! Every 2nd Wednesday of the month we’ll have a different speaker with a different fascinating topic. Expect the presentation to last 15-20 minutes after which the floor will be open for discussion. 2018 Schedule:

We meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month in San Jose at Denny's on 1st and Brokaw, back room. The reservation is under Taffy Dugan.

$1 donation requested; no one turned away for lack of funds.

Moot: "From Middle English moot, mot, ȝemot, from Old English mōt, gemōt (“moot, society .... (paganism) A social gathering of pagans, normally held in a public house." https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/moot

General Moot Rules:

Inclusiveness: We are an open group who respects everyone no matter their age, race, gender preference, or sexual orientation. We don't tolerate bigotry of any kind. If someone shows difficulty with this, we will work with them to understand but, if they persist they will be asked to not come back. Politics: We ask that attendees stay on topic and discuss all things related to Paganism. This includes politics. Political discussions are appropriate if they have to do with being Pagan (saving the Earth or religious freedom, for example) but, are not welcome if they are off-topic. Discussion: All discussion should be conducted in a respectful manner. Please refrain from discussing politics or any other topic if you feel that you cannot discuss them in a respectful manner. Fire and passion are welcome as long as you can remain compassionate of and open to others' opinions.

The Witches' Tea!
Hosted by Valerie

Every last Sunday of the month
3PM to 6PM

Palo Alto Cafe

Let's get together for another Witches' Tea Party! The previous ones were great fun, so we're doing it again.

Witches, Pagans, Magicians, Asatruarfolk, all ye fine and fun folk, wend your way to this nice little coffeehouse in Midtown Palo Alto. They have an assortment of tasty teas and coffees, plus yummy sandwiches and plenty of pastries.

We'll take a little breather and enjoy the company of our fellow walkers of the path of the independent spirit. Relax in the company of those who won't think you're weird for talking with the land-wights or listening to the voice of the Goddess on the breeze! We'll be looking nice and Witchy--and I'll try to have a big red Meetup sign on my table!

Feel free to wear your Witchy finery or fancy-wear (but keep'em street-legal, please)!

$1 contribution toward this website requested (not required).

See you there, and Blessed Be!
