Information about our Seasonal Rituals
Circle of Aradia is a Grove of Temple of Diana, Inc. located in the Los Angeles, CA area, and her members have provided seasonal rituals for the Los Angeles community continually since 1980 (and are a direct line to Dianic celebrations that began in 1971). To continue providing its seasonal rituals during the shutdowns of the Covid-19 pandemic, Circle of Aradia went online and now also serves women nationally and internationally.
With the pandemic easing, Circle of Aradia is returning to in-person rituals during the warmer months in southern California. Women who live in the southern California area are encouraged to experience those rituals in-person as these rituals are meant to be. The online rituals we provide, while convenient for women living out of the area, are not meant to be a replacement for gathering to celebrate in person when we are able. The magical energy we create together when we are together in circle – women with women, is what made our goddess movement the life-enhancing experience it is meant to be.
Members of Circle of Aradia and Guardians of the Grove members (which are Groves of national Temple of Diana, Inc.) will continue to provide online (via zoom) seasonal rituals throughout the year, and/or provide workshops that assist women in creating their own celebrations of the holy days in accord with Dianic tradition’s centering of Goddesses, women, and girls.
Women interested in attending the seasonal rituals and seasonal workshops are encouraged to subscribe to the contact lists of both Temple of Diana, Inc. Groves: Circle of Aradia (www.circleofaradia.org) and Guardians of the Grove (www.guardiansofthegrove.org) so that you can be notified of what is being offered and when.
