What we're about

Welcome to the grass roots, people-powered, community calendar of events for the Witches & Pagans Community in Los Angeles!

There are several new, important differences between this and most other Meetups. The most important difference is that from now on ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS ARE WELCOME TO CREATE AND ANNOUNCE MEETUP EVENTS - as soon as you send a request to be upgraded to Event Organizer status by sending a request to member, Krystal Rains. (click on members, and search for her name)

Due to the recent change in status/spammer ownership, there does appear to be one remaining change. It looks likes Meetup.com altered their policies regarding open calendars, such that groups started after 2014 are not able to allow all members to post events. Instead, admins can upgrade any member to "Event Organizer" status, allowing them to create, edit, and delete their own events as they like. When our meetup changed hands our page changed to the new model.

You can read about Meetup's policy here: Member Suggest Meetups (https://www.meetup.com/help/customer/portal/articles/865438-member-suggested-meetups/?urlkey=help&topic=help&__topic_subdomain=1). "

EVERY SINGLE COMMUNITY MEMBER can post ANY EVENT you like on the new Community Calendar - As soon as you request Event Organizer status due to the changes on Meetup.com (see above) - And you can even announce it yourself immediately the entire community without approval as well.

Here is - step by step - how to create a grass roots Meetup event on the Community Calendar:

1. Join the Community.

2. Go to the members, search for Krystal Rains and request to be made an "Event Organizer"

3. Event Organizers may add Meetups by filling out the 'Let's Meetup and...' form

4. Meetups added by Event Organizers are turned into official Meetups immediately.

5. Event Organizer-added Meetups with a date selected will appear on the Calendar

6. Event Organizer-added Meetups without a date selected will appear only on the 'Upcoming' Meetups list on the Meetup Group's home page

7. The Event Organizer who adds the Meetup may choose to announce the Meetup to the Meetup Group's members immediately.

Finally, the community mailing list is currently moderated, but informative messages will be approved to reach the entire community!

Please Use the Message Boards for ongoing conversations.

These are powerful community building tools. Please use them responsibly.

This is our community. Let's nurture and care for it.

"The Amazons-Fact & Fiction" Virtual Lecture -Dr. James Rietveld-Sept. 22, 8 pm

Link visible for attendees

Join us at Ipso Facto on Thursday, September 22, 8 p.m. for a Salon lecture with Dr. James Rieveld on The Amazons-Female Warriors of Fact & Fiction!
Pay What You Wish to Attend: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/401757396187
In Greek mythology, the Amazons were a tribe of brutal and aggressive women warriors related to Scythians and Sarmatians, who were said to have founded the cities and temples of Smyrna, Sinope, Cyme, Gryne, Ephesus and more.
But did they really exist?
Often depicted in battle with Greek warriors, the Amazons appear on numerous occasions in Greek literature, from history to rumor and back again. Indeed, exciting tales of warlike women of nomadic cultures, also come from ancient Egypt, Persia, India, and China.
From Euripides "Hippolotus" to the Hercules myths, as well as Virgil, Plutarch, Homer and more, they are consistently represented as women with a will of their own.
Hear of Otrera, the first Amazon queen, how Amazon legends interweave with that of Ephesus and the Temple of Artemis, their interactions with Alexander the Great, and how archaeological discoveries at kurgan burial sites in the steppes of southern Ukraine and Russia can answer our question.
Join us virtually via Ipso Facto to hear the exciting tales of the Amazons, and to separate fact from fiction to arrive at the answer to our question.
Dr. Rietveld is a professor at California State University, Fullerton, CA and Cal Poly, Pomona, CA of History, Anthropology and Religion. His specialties include the History of Christianity in the Early, Medieval and Byzantine periods, New Testament Studies and Greco-Roman religions. He received his PHD from Claremont School of Religion and is the author of two books.

Join Ayamanatara for a lightly guided online meditation and discussion (by donation).

Headphones recommended. I use the Zoom app (and website), which you might want to download or check out prior to the meditation so you are good to go.

Once we start, no one will be admitted - it's hard to keep an eye on the waiting room and meditate!

Trad Craft 201 series on Zoom with Griffin & Carrie

Needs a location


Traditional Witchcraft 201 Zoom Series with Griffin & Carrie
Starting August 9th at 7:30 p.m. for nine weeks.
$28 per class; $183 for series if purchased in full.
Series purchase brings the price to $20 per class.

Also with Series purchase only, as this is a zoom series, you get access to taped video of classes. So if you miss a class or two, or can’t make the series time frame, you can still view at your leisure!
Have you been taking some classes with Griffin & Carrie and wanted to know more about how to put those teachings into your own practice? Are you just tapping your foot, waiting for the Awakening the Witchblood series everyone talks about doing in the Fall (right up there with your pumpkin spice fix)? Does Zoom give you access to this awesome witchcraft community that you wouldn’t otherwise have, because you live too far to be physically present? Or – does Zoom work for you even though you do live close by because it’s the only way to take the 201 this year? Do Vision Quests really blow your ritual robes up? If so, this series just might be exactly what you’re looking for!
201 class is one that we usually do partly in lecture, and partly in practice, so as to give students an opportunity to take what they’ve learned in other classes and apply it to real work. As we are doing this class on Zoom, we will be building an Astral Temple together and doing the application of the real work on the Astral, in Vision Quest. Our hope is that you DO Try This At Home Kids, and share your experiences with us, and ask your questions! The goal is a more experiential method approach that offers the student a deeper understanding of the material by taking it out of the realm of the theoretical and putting it into the realm of the practical. The objective of the Series is that the student claims insight into the material that enables true ownership and proficiency into Trad Craft of this level.

Many Trad Craft Subjects will be covered and worked with practically, from Spell crafting to Sight Work, Ancestral Work, and Deity & Spirit work of all types. We will also, of course, be getting into the many expressions of the Crossroads & Mill related material, that much of the Legacy Work revolves around. We will delve deep into the Quarter and Cross Quarters Leyline Tracks of Power, as they pertain to the Ancestral Legacy of the Ancient Arte of Witchery, as found within the Airts Compass. We will focus on the practical aspects of making ritual space and working it.

This is not a Wiccan- based system and all students must be open to and able to deal with exploring Magic as foundational to the Craft.
Note* We start each week at 7.30pm with open general discussion, using the first half hour so that people running from work may make it to the class proper, which starts at 8.00pm.
