Sunwise is a space for pagans to come together and learn, share, and grow as a community. There will be social events for pagans to gather, creative events for learning a craft, along with opportunities for guest teachers to host classes. We welcome all pagans of any tradition, whether coven-trained, self-taught, or completely new!
In Scotland, sunwise (also known as deosil, sunward, or clockwise) was considered the “prosperous course”, with one turning from east to west in the direction of the sun. The druids would walk around their temples in this manner, and walking around a circle to the right was considered to bring good luck and fortune. This has carried on to today, whereby many magickal groups will cast circles sunwise in order to gather and build up energy. Similarly, our ethos is one by which our gatherings will be used to promote friendship, growth, and healing, thereby helping all of us rise.
Sunwise was formerly known as the Nerdy Witches group of the Bay Area.
