The Toronto Temple is moving to a new home!

As many of you may know, the Bavia Arts Centre, which has been our home for the past three years, is closing its St. Clair West location. Accordingly, the Toronto Temple's new home as of Sunday, January 11, 2015, will be:

The University of Toronto Multifaith Centre
569 Spadina Ave, 2nd floor, Main Activity Hall

(See map)

This is a wonderful new space, very centrally located, more accessible for disabled people (there is an elevator), with a kitchenette which will be helpful for sabbat feasts, and the opportunity to be part of a vibrant multifaith community.

Due to scheduling constraints in our new home, please note that classes will now be held on the same day as ritual, in the afternoon. Class will be held from 4-6pm, then there will be a 1-hour meal break, and then ritual will begin at 7pm.

Also, please note that because the new space does not become available until the second week in January but Bavia is closed as of the first week, circle and class on Jan 4 will take place upstairs from the Occult Shop, at 1373 Bathurst St, just south of St Clair Ave W. We will be at the U of T Multifaith Centre as of Jan 11.

Public Classes

Classes are held every Sunday afternoon at 4pm throughout the year, at The University of Toronto Multifaith Centre (569 Spadina Ave, 2nd floor, main activity hall).

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:

Please note that the U of T Multifaith Centre does have a small kitchen available for refrigerating and warming up feast foods. However, they also have a very strict no-alcohol policy, so please do not bring wine or any other alcoholic beverage to sabbat feasts.
