9th Annual Divination Night

Our annual fundraiser, offering many kinds of divination from many readers. Readings will be $25 each. Further details will be posted as they become available.

Public Classes

Classes are currently held every Thursday night at 8pm throughout the year, at the Bavia Arts Centre (898b St Clair Ave West), unless otherwise specified below. Please note that this is a recent change from our previous schedule of holding classes on Tuesdays.

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.

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.
