CAYA: New Year, New Location
Exciting news for one Bay Area Pagan Group: CAYA is moving from BFUU in Berkeley to the Home of Truth Spiritual Center in Alameda. While the sanctuary at BFUU was welcoming and open, anyone who has attended CAYA rituals in the past can attest to the less-than-optimum parking situation there. According to YesheRabbit, the new-to-CAYA space in Alameda has “a good amount of street parking along Grand and Alameda streets, the intersection where the Home of Truth lives.” And parking is free! (Please note that all of CAYA’s Bloodroot Honey Goddess Sabbats, Grove of Artemis Full Moon Circles, and Brotherhood of the Moon circles will continue to meet in their regular location at the Berkeley Yoga Center, 2112 Bonar St. at Addison in Berkeley.)
The first CAYA sabbat in their new home will be the Festival of Prophecy and Initiation this Saturday, February 2nd, at 7:30pm. CAYA will honor the Goddess Brighde and will feature the formal dedication of CAYA’s latest Aspirants. As always, drums, rattles and shakers are welcome, and you may bring anything you would like to charge on the altar. Contributions to cakes and ale are also welcome, but please clearly label them for those with allergies and sensitivities.

For public transportation users, the 51A bus drops you off at the corner of
Santa Clara and Grand for a very, very quick walk to the Sanctuary. BART to
Fruitvale and a bike make a great combination. Folks are also welcome to
post and coordinate ride shares via the CAYA Coven Chat group, which can be
