Come to our first meeting: Sun. July 29, 2012, 7:00 PM, The Sacred Well, 536 Grand Ave., Oakland.
Possible LaMP activities: full moon lake walks, altar building, volunteering at the city's regular lake clean-ups, and whatever good ideas you bring!
This group evolved out of a conversation between me and another Pagan living on Lake Merritt after a presentation/ discussion at Pantheacon where the presenter was entertaining the idea that Saraswati and Brigid are connected. The post-presentation discussion led to a question of whether there is something inherently different about the quality of a deity tied to a well versus a giant river. The question came up about whether Lake Merritt would have a completely different deity because of being a man-made lake that functions as an estuary. So this other person (who I don't name because I don't know if she still wants to be involved) and I had a great conversation about this Lake Merritt deity, if we could come up with a vision of it and build an altar to it... This all evolved into the idea of bringing together Lake Merritt Pagans. Rabbit at the Sacred Well got into the idea, offered us her store as a meeting place, and voila, our first meeting is finally afoot.
