Can you help with an upcoming event?


Monday, May 1, we will be celebrating Beltaine, but this year will be much different than in years past.


Temple founder Gen Vaughan is sending a videographer to create a fund raising film that day. We are hoping to get lots of people out to support the Temple and this project.


We’d like to have one or two workshops happening in the pavilion at 4:00 pm, followed by dancing the Maypole at approximately 5:30 pm, a potluck feast in the pavilion from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, and then ritual in the Temple. We need lots of women, children and men to attend!  (Remember this will be filmed.)


We need folks to sign up to give or participate in a workshop, and will need 8 people to dance the Maypole (who willing to practice before hand!) LOL, and lots of great potluck feast food.


We want to showcase the many types of activities available at the Temple, so if you have ideas please contact Candace Ross asap at 702) 569.0630.


And please RSVP that you will be here, and at what time.  We need your support to make this event a success!


Thank you sooo much!

October 2016 Events at the Temple

Hello Family!

We have an amazing October planned for you! Please mark your calendar for these upcoming events.

Saturday, October 15 – We have the honor of hosting Vegas Vortex’ Bone Dance again this year! Please see their site for details of this all night drumming circle extraordinaire!.

Sunday, October 16t – Full Moon Celebration – Potluck in the Pavilion at 7:00 pm, followed by ritual in the Temple at 8:00. (no silent auction- it will be at the Samhain event instead!)

This month’s ritual theme will focus on “essentials,” and we will honor the Goddess Ma’at.

Monday, October 31 – Two  Samhain rituals!

Silent Auction from 7:00 pm til 7:45 in the Pavilion (a wonderful and fun way to support the Temple!)

1st Ritual – We will gather in the Pavilion at 7:00 pm (food blessings at 7:05) for a special potluck honoring our ancestors. Please bring a favorite dish of someone who has passed, and whom you wish to honor. We will go around the group asking anyone who wants to share a few words about the dish and the person it honors.

There will be an ancestor altar set up in front of the beautiful Sekhmet mural in the social area. (Weather permitting, there will be a fire in the social area as well.)  Please bring a photo or other memento to place on the altar (remembering to reclaim it at the end of the evening).

We will walk to the first bridge nearest the Pavilion , be smudged, and learn a simple chant.  We will sing it as we proceed to the Ancestor Altar and light a candle, before entering the Temple for the evening’s first ritual, Honoring our Ancestors.

2nd Ritual will be at 11:30 pm and continue through midnight. In honor of third and last harvest, we will celebrate what we have completed and now need to leave behind, and what we want to bring into our lives. After that, we will explore Inanna’s Descent to the Underworld to visit Her sister, Ereshkigal.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

Blessings,
Candace
