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.

Fullerton Art Walk-Ipso Facto-Works By Julie Belmont & Eileen Bowe-June 2

Join us for FREE Fullerton Artwalk on Friday, June 2, 6-9 p.m. with Paintings by Julie Belmont & Photography by Eileen Bowe at Ipso Facto at 517 N. Harbor Blvd Fullerton CA 92832.
Multiple locations Free admission: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/620369350427
As a fine art photographer Eileen Bowe uses color and imagery to create a dreamscape ethereal mood that captures the dark beauty aesthetic in everything she photographs. In her work she strives to elicit a thought, an emotion or feeling, whether abstract or tangible. Eileen is also a talented musician and sound engineer, works as a media operations specialist for the city of Lakewood, and enjoys roller derby in her spare time.
An eclectic creative, Julie Belmont loves to draw out the clear essence of the subject into her pieces, capturing animals, people or objects, bringing them to life. Commissioned works challenge her to create the client’s vision or subject together with her conceptual creation. A veteran freelance writer for over 30 years, Julie has penned articles, poems, stories, and is working on a cozy mystery “Bad Blood in the Bayou; an LA to LA Book 1-Framed." She is also dedicated to the preservation, rehabilitation and protection of animals, having created and illustrated a children's book “Chloe’s Journey,” inspired by her own rescue dog.

The Great Ouija Experiment – HYBRID class with Shana

The Green Man


Join Intuitive Shana on June 3rd 12-2, for a spooky experiment…the Great Ouija Experiment to be exact!
The afternoon will cover the history of talking boards, psychic protection, & multiple philosophies on the inner workings of the board. Also, there will be opportunities to use multiple types of boards in order to form a solid understanding of talking boards and form your own opinion of them. Aside from gaining insight into paranormal history and a working knowledge of the most notorious form of spirit communication, you will also get a chance to get hands on and play with various types of boards including vintage ouija boards, pendulum boards, angel boards and even the new (and hilarious) Jesus Board.

Sound Bath

Online event

This is a 45-60 minute soothing meditation, assisted around singing bowls, most of them crystal. The goal is to relax your body, soothe your soul, and balance your your energy. I have figured out how to recreate the experience of a live sound bath on the internet.

One of the things we find is that singing bowls, especially the crystal ones, seem to transmit some of the energy of the practitioner, which means that it is helpful when the practitioner is confident in their technique and in sound theory, is centered and grounded, and works with healing intent. If you have had an uncomfortable experience in a sound bath, the practitioner may have been off that day.

Please note that the session on the last Saturday of the month is a more focused, coached experience designed to help you move through trauma.

Belly Dancing Level 1 series with Jen McDonald

The Green Man


*PLEASE NOTE: This class will be followed by Level 1.5 on the same dates! If you'd like to take both series at once, there will be a price break option for that on the event page for Level 1.5!*
FatChanceBellyDance®Style is a modern, group improvisational form of belly dance. A fusion dance, the movements are inspired by folkloric dances of the Middle East, North Africa, Spain, and India. It is a uniquely modern creation that does not represent an “authentic" dance from any particular region.
This style celebrates the strength and beauty of working together as a group. Formatted steps, cues, eye-contact, and connection allow dancers to stitch together an improvisational tapestry each time they dance.
Level 1 Fundamentals begins your journey of empowerment and support, helping you to build muscle, coordination, mental acuity, and grace. Students will learn dance posture, form, transitions, and how to follow cues.
This 6 week course consists of:
Warm Up
Gratitude Mediation
Fast Vocabulary – 4 movements
Slow Vocabulary – 5 movements
Finger Cymbals
Cool Down
Each class builds upon the previous one, and there will be a review of the previous week.
This class is definitely a fun work out. Please wear comfortable clothing you can move in, bring water, and a notebook if you like to take notes.
Sundays, 3:00-4:00pm
6 weeks, $93 – Single Class $23
About the Teacher: Jen McDonald
I began my dance journey in the year 2000, inspired by my Mom and Best Friend. We started taking classes as a fun way to get in shape together. 22 years later, I am a certified teacher, performer, and director. Thanks Mom! I found FCBD Style in 2004 and fell head over heels in love. The deep connection dancers share is unlike any other style that I've experienced. I love the discipline of this art form, the strength and earthy sensuality, the trust, acceptance, and intimacy it inspires. I direct a small troupe of like minded enthusiasts, Crescent Rose, who you will surely see in class. Please come and join us!
