Temple of Venus

A Seasonal Day-long Ritual & Retreat for Women

Spring Equinox

Saturday 3/25, 1-9 pm

Location: Sienna Smith Yoga & Wellness

245 Sir Francis Drake Blvd, Fairfax, CA 94930

Video Intro and Invite

Together, we create this space to invoke, explore, and honor each woman’s unique expression of The Goddess. 

Together, we get to create and delight in the potent energy of magic and manifestation created when women gather with intention.

Temple of Venus is about women celebrating the expression of The Goddess through the seasons.  The transition of seasons represents our transitions through phases of life.   Cycles, chapters, patterns, peaks and valleys.

The nature and medicine of The Feminine is transformation.

Consciously working with this energy connects us more deeply to ourselves, our lives, nature, community, feminine energy, Spirit.

The ritual, self-care activities, drinks, elixirs, deco, altar, dress, and take-away party gifts will all be themed for Spring, and pulling inspirations from Eastern Medicines, Tarot, Astrology, current moon phase and sign, Venus, creativity, ritual, self-care, dance, and sensuality.

The Moon phase this day will be a waxing crescent which supports growth/new intentions/new projects, and it will be in the sign of Taurus, an Earth element.

Venus is associated with the most prominent female goddess archetypes of all ancient cultures.  She has been given many names over time – Ishtar, Inanna, Aphrodite, to name a few.  Venus will be in the sign of Aires.

Each Temple of Venus event will also feature a special guest, to offer info & inspo in relation to the seasonal theme.

The featured guest for Spring 2023 is Summer Murphy,

a licensed esthetician, in San Rafael.

Summer has been my skincare guru for many years, and I cannot speak enough to the value of her guidance and facials!

Info for your prep. and planning:

  • Share the event with a friend of yours you’d like to enjoy the experience with by sharing the event link with her. (Thank you SO MUCH!)
  • Dress in something that inspires the Goddess of Spring within you.  Think celebratory, feminine, sensual, comfortable, low maintenance, easy to wear for sitting, stretching, and dancing.
  • Bring all food items to cover your needs for the day.  Some drinks and elixirs will be provided.
  • Bring a water bottle
  • Bring a journal and pen
  • Bring a song, poetry, a dance, a piece of music to share if you feel inspired (optional, no pressure)
  • There will be folding chairs, limited cushions, and limited yoga blankets for seating, but if you want to bring a large cushion to sit on the floor for more comfortable sitting options, please do.
  • This is a shoes-off experience, so please plan to either wear comfy slippers or socks. The floors are concrete.
  • Come with an open heart and excitement to share this space with other women, old friends and new ones.  One hope I have for these events  is that it grows our collective sisterhood webs.

This event is supported through a shared agreement to create a solid container together.  Please show up on time and stay for the whole experience.
