Oshun Celebration – Lake Merritt (Oakland)


Rabbits Annual Oshun Party

Friday, May 7

5:00 pm – 9 pm

536 Grand Avenue

Oakland, CA 94610

(510) 444-WELL

Whether you are a regular patron, or if this is your first visit to The Sacred Well, make a special effort to attend one of the most lively, fun, and sacred events this Spring!

Each year in May, Rabbit offers a party for her beloved Goddess, Oshun.  The Patroness of the Oshogbo River in Nigeria, Oshun is worshipped as the Orisha of love, pleasure, beauty, prosperity, healing, and psychic ability in many different spiritual Traditions.  She brings sweetness, joy, laughter and life’s richness to those who honor Her.  This annual event is a beautiful, elegant, and fun-filled celebration of Oshun: with singing, dancing, drumming, storytelling, hor d’oeures, champagne, and store specials on select items to help draw love, wealth, beauty and healing.

Drop in between 5-7 pm to shop, chat, nibble, sip and socialize.  Bring your drum and stay from 7-9 pm as we sit beneath the Colonnades and drum and sing songs to the spirit of Oshun at the heart of Oakland: Lake Merritt.

If you plan to attend, here are some ideas to make your experience even more fun.  Bring an offering to Oshun if you’d like to ask Her to bless you with a favor in the coming year: honey, champagne, honey wine or ale, peacock feathers, fans, mirrors, costume jewelry, or sweets are good choices, 5 pennies, nickels, or any monetary amount in multiples of 5.  Oshun is asked to bless Her adorants with love, prosperity, healing, joy, and greater beauty and grace in their lives.  Your offerings will be gathered upon Her altar in the store.

If you’d like to dress for the party, wear white, yellow, gold, green, orange, or peacock print.  Wear lots of jewelry if you like, or adorn yourself festively in some way.  Celebrate the beauty that you already are and the joys of life in order to attract more!

No RSVP necessary, just show up ready to have a great time!
