The Wheel presents...

The WCC's REAL Witches' Ball!

The Wheel turns once more, and as the veil thins, Persephone descends, and the dead return to dance with us for one night.

Come and join the Fruit of the Turquoise Vine in the Dance of Death — 6:00-10:00 PM the timing leaves room for further late-night carousing afterwards...

Tickets available here.

Thu, Nov 6, 7pm
(and every Thursday thereafter)

Important notice:

Class time is changing after Samhain!

By popular demand, the time of our Thursday night classes is changing from 8pm to 7pm.

This change takes effect after Samhain, so the classes Oct 23 and 30 will still be at the original time, 8pm. The new time will begin with the first class in November, on Nov 6.

Please spread the word, so that people don't show up halfway through class expecting it to be just starting!

Fri, Nov 14, 7-10pm
Danforth Bowl

1554 Danforth Ave
Toronto

WCC Bowling Night

We will have the whole place to ourselves. They have a cash bar and snacks, or you can bring your own snacks. We are also going to collect food and donations for the food drive. Tickets are $25 per person, $60 per family (two adults and two kids 14 or under), and are available at Sunday Circle or from any member of the steering committee.

Public Classes

Classes are currently held every Thursday night throughout the year, at the Bavia Arts Centre (898b St Clair Ave West), unless otherwise specified below. Please note that while our classes have traditionally been held at 8pm, they will be changing to 7pm, beginning after Samhain.

The classes follow a year-long cycle that starts at Samhain each year, but students can start at any point during the year and attend as many or as few classes as they wish. They are offered on a drop-in basis, with no advance registration required.

Our classes are open to the public, and are all welcome to attend, regardless of their level of knowledge and experience (or lack thereof), though minors require the permission of a parent or guardian. Admission is free, but donations are gladly welcomed.

Public Rituals

Circles are held every Sunday night throughout the year. During the warmer months (from Beltaine to the summer before Harvesttide), they take place at Serena Gundy Park at 8pm, except in case of rain when they are held indoors at Bavia Arts. During the colder months (from Harvesttide until the Sunday before Beltaine), they are held at the Bavia Arts Centre (898b St Clair Ave West), at 7pm.

Our Sunday rituals are open to the public, and are all welcome to attend, regardless of their level of knowledge and experience (or lack thereof), though minors require the permission of a parent or guardian. Admission is free, but donations are gladly welcomed.

About Feast Foods

When "feast foods" are requested for a sabbat or other special occasion, this means that people should bring some sort of food or drink to share in a potluck dinner after the ritual. Bringing feast foods for these events isn't required, but it is encouraged.

Because the sabbats are seasonally based, it is preferable to bring food that is seasonally appropriate and/or traditional to that sabbat. The class prior to each sabbat will usually contain a section on what foods are associated with that day, and there are a number of excellent resources on the web for seasonal foods in the southern Ontario area, including the following:

Also, please note that since the new location does not have a kitchen or coffee counter like our old temple did, please bring your own plate, cutlery, etc. for sabbat feasts. We would prefer to avoid the use of disposables, for environmental reasons. Also, since there's no place to wash dishes at the site, you'll want to make sure you have a bag to put your used dishes into for the trip home, so they don't get other things you may be carrying dirty.
