HAPPY SUMMER!
Merry Meet Goddesses!

I hope the beginning of Summer finds you all healthy and happy to be out and about again! Mask restrictions are about to ease up here in Southern California and so I am happy to announce that the Goddess Studio is starting to come out of Covid hibernation and I'm beginning to make plans to SLOWLY and gently begin activities once again. YEA!

First activity to resume: we are beginning with re-starting BELLY DANCE CLASSES with Thea and Elena on TUES JULY 13! Woohoo! See flyer above and the belly dance section below for more details...

And the next activity to SAVE THE DATE for is our annual Goddess Studio Sabbat celebration for LAMMAS on Sun Aug 1st!
More details to come soon, so for now save the usual date and time of 2-6:30 pm. And while you are saving dates, pencil in the next Sabbat of Samhain that we will celebrate on SAT NIGHT, OCT 30 too. (We are going to hopscotch over Litha & Mabon).

Regarding other activities like Meditation and Magic circles, please let me know if you'd like to join us for that gathering and we can see if there is enough interest to hold the monthly circles again.

As far as a new PRIESTESS TRAINING Program... I'm contemplating beginning a new year long program starting in Jan 2022, if there seems to be enough interest! So let me know if you have been considering this and I can keep you posted!

That's the UPDATE for now!

I've missed all your smiling faces around here and can't wait to give REAL LIVE IN PERSON HUGS again!!

Enjoy your Summertime (HAPPY LITHA /SUMMER SOLSTICE on June 21) and stay tuned for another update with details about Lammas coming soon!

If you are missing our annual Litha Celebration, tune into this 6 min wonderful reminisce of our 2019 Litha "Honoring the Elements" YouTube "movie" by Mandella. Oh those smiles!

Stay well and stay IN LOVE!

Love and gratitude ~ until we merry meet again,
Blessed be
Amalya
