This will be an informal dinner meeting with no announced topic. Just an opportunity to meet and talk to your fellow Satanists, Luciferians, "Dark" Pagans, and Left Hand Path occultists.
Please plan to arrive between 6:45 and 7:15 PM.
Unfortunately I, the organizer, will be unable to attend this week due to a household emergency. However, please don't let my absence rob you of the easiest way to meet Satanists, etc., here in New York City. Because Thursday's meeting is just an informal discussion at a diner, there is no need to cancel it. You can still have a good time hanging out with your fellow LHPers. I'm very sorry I can't be there this week, but don't let that stop you.
I recommend that the group begin the meeting with a round of introductions, each of you saying a little about your own personal path and about what Satanism, Luciferianism, etc., means to you personally. (There are MANY different kinds of Satanism, Luciferianism, etc.) Then, after the introductions, you can informally discuss whatever Satanic/LHP and occult topics are of greatest interest to most of the people there.
As always, please plan to spend a minimum of $5 on food and/or drink, to help us maintain a good relationship with the diner. Thank you.
We meet at a diner on West 23rd Street in Manhattan. (The exact address, and other details, will be visible to you on this page once you join this Meetup group -- or log in to Meetup, if you are already a member.) The nearest subway stop is 23rd Street on the 1 line (7th Avenue). We are also within walking distance of the 6th Avenue (F,M) and 8th Avenue (C,E) subways, the 23rd Street PATH station, and Penn Station.
We'll be at a table in the BACK part of the diner. Please ask a waiter about "Diane Vera's meetup." At least one or two of us, though probably not most of us, will be wearing black shirts and/or point-down pentagram pendants of some kind. (If you arrive early and are the first to arrive, please have a seat in the BACK part of the diner and let the waiter know that you are here for "Diane Vera's meetup.")
Newcomers are welcome. Although our meetings are informal, we do aim to have substantive conversation about our beliefs and practices, rather than just random chit chat.
We need you to RSVP here on the Meetup site, so we can know how big a table to ask for. Please RSVP as soon as you can. The more people RSVP early, the bigger and better our meetings will be, because a reasonably large number of early RSVP's will let other visitors to this site know that we are indeed a live group where they will actually meet some people.
Diane Vera, the organizer of this Meetup Group, is also the founder of the local NYC proto-congregation of the Church of Azazel. However, the NYC Satanists discussion group welcomes Satanists, Luciferians, Dark Pagans, and LHP occultists of all law-abiding kinds, not just prospective Church of Azazel members.)
Diane Vera, the organizer, is a non-LaVeyan theistic Satanist. She maintains a website on theistic Satanism, including the page Attention, New Yorkers! (for theistic Satanists in and near New York City).
