Rabbit's 5th Annual Oshun Party!

Rabbit’s 5th Annual Oshun Party

Friday, May 4

5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Free Event!

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

Each year in May, in gratitude for the love, abundance, intuition, and joy that is present in her life, Rabbit offers an public devotional celebration in honor of Oshun. The Orisha of sweet waters, love, beauty, and wealth offers us so many blessings: fresh water to drink, the beauty of the natural world, the blood in our veins. All over the world, Oshun is worshipped in many different religious systems as “the sweetness that makes life worth living.” This annual event is a beautiful, elegant, and fun-filled celebration of Oshun: with singing, dancing, drumming, storytelling, free hors d’oeuvres, fancy water, wine & champagne, and store specials on select items to help draw love, wealth, beauty and healing.

Drop in between 5:00 and 7:00 pm to chat, nibble, sip and socialize. Bring your drum, rattle, or bell and join us from 7:00 to 9:00 pm as we sit beneath the Colonnades and offer our energies in song, dance, and drumming to Lake Merritt, the Oshun of Oakland. You'll want a jacket or wrap in case of chill, and a camp chair if you don't want to sit on the stone steps.

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 up 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 of who you already are and the joys of life, ever-growing into more, more, more goodness!

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