Open Circle


The Quaker Meetinghouse
225 Rooney Street
Santa Cruz, CA 95065

We meet on the 2nd Saturday of every month. Gather at 2:30pm, begin ritual at 3:00pm. The intention of this circle is to provide a regular meeting place for Earth-Spirit, Pagan worship in Santa Cruz. New comers are welcome! Let us meet together in sacred trust to create closer spiritual bonds of love and understanding within our community and within our tribes.

Following ritual will be a simple feast, and the opening of circle. (No potluck, except on occasion). After circle has been opened, we invite you to stay to socialize, and perhaps have some tea and snacks.

P.S. Masks are welcome!

This is in the Prospect Heights neighborhood, north of Highway 1. Rooney Street runs parallel and adjacent to Highway 1. The Quaker meeting house is just past the north end of Morrissey, on the other side of the freeway. Alternative ways into the neighborhood are La Fonda Avenue on the east side, and Branciforte Avenue and Market Street on the west.

The Santa Cruz Metro Transit District provides mass transit route 69 from the Metro stations in downtown Santa Cruz and Watsonville, running along Soquel Avenue between Front Street and Capitola Road. The stop at Morrissey Avenue is the closest one, just 1/4 mile to the other end of Morrissey (go over the freeway along the left side of the street, then turn left on Rooney and right up the driveway.)

For those driving from out of town from the south, take the Morrissey exit off of Highway 1, turn right before crossing over the freeway, then take an immediate left on to Rooney, drive past two homes, then turn into the large driveway on the right. For those driving from the north, take the Morrissey exit, turn left at the stop sign (Fairmount) and left at the traffic signal (Morrissey). Follow the road to the right for a full 360 degree turn, then right again on Rooney and left into the first driveway.

Online? In person?

During the pandemic we were holding Open Circle online, but now we are back to ritualizing in person. Yay!
