Roses, Too! is a tradition of eclectic Feminist Witchcraft,
founded in 1993 in the Delaware Valley (Philadelphia, PA area).
The Roses, Too! potluck community is an interfaith one, which includes women, men, children, cats, houseplants, and composting worms of a number of different spiritual paths. Collectively, we are passionate about books, cats, environmentalism, feminism, good food, nature, self-reflection, singing, social justice, and the healing power of community.
You are welcome to bring food, toys, and music to share, but please come even if you can only bring your sweet self.
Our potlucks serve a variety of purposes. Among them are honoring the changing seasons, the sacred act of sharing food, time spent with friends, and the chance to meet new people. The Roses, Too! potluck community is an interfaith one, and not everyone who comes to potlucks has done ritual with us or wants to. We have shared values because of, not despite, our diversity.
We do have occasional exceptions to this rule, including our Beltane "the more, the merrier" Maypole ritual.
Most Roses, Too! rituals tend to be intimate, personal, and small (5 to 8 people). We work to make room for every participant's unique voice to be heard. When everyone present is known (or at least vouched for), we feel safer to make and take the dare at the heart of each ritual.
If you've never been to a Roses, Too! event but would like to come to one of our rituals, and you've been in circle or worship with Stasa or Janet elsewhere, check with her; depending on the particular event, that might work.
