Welcome to the San Francisco Bay Otherkin Meetup! We have short meetups (2 to 3 hours long) once a month, on alternating second Saturdays and second Sundays. (Saturdays in January, March, May, July, September, and November; Sundays in April, June, August, October, and December; special event at PantheaCon on Saturday in February.) They are held at various locations around the San Francisco Bay area, moving around the bay so that everyone has a chance to have a meetup nearer to them at least every few months: south bay (San Jose area), San Francisco proper, southwest or peninsula (Redwood City area), and northeast (Oakland/Berkeley area). Currently, southeast (Fremont/Hayward area) is not in rotation because no meetup members live in the area, but it has been in the past. By special request we may have meetups in the north bay (e.g. San Rafael), Santa Cruz, or on dates other than our usual ones.
Adults 18+ only, please. No unattended minors. Minors may only come to meets if their parent or guardian is also present.
The meetup is mostly aimed at mythic and theriomythic otherkin, e.g. elves, fae, sidhe, unicorns, dragons, gryphons, nature spirits, angels, Tuatha De Danann, and any other kind of mythical, magical, fantastic, or spiritual non-human folk. However, therianthropes are also welcome if they identify with a mythic and otherworldly "feel", or even if they just want to talk to some otherkin now and again.
The focus of the group is social interaction. We are not a disciplined study/magical group. The aim is mainly to be able to chat and form connections with people we know will understand the idea of having an other-than-human nature, so we can feel comfortable not having to skirt the issue. Thus, discussion subjects can vary widely. Sometimes we are right on topic with past lives, similarities and differences between kinds of 'kin, awakening, memories, community happenings, magical practices, et cetera; other times we wind up talking about books, RPGs, computer programming, or crafts.
To join the meetup and receive announcements of upcoming events, visit http://eristic.net/mailman/listinfo/sfbayotherkin_eristic.net and scroll down to the section "Subscribing to sfbayotherkin"! The AnOtherWiki page for the meetup also provides an RSS feed and an iCal feed . Keep in mind, however, that these are very simple notifications and I don't have any control over the content other than that a notification is generated when the dates are edited on the wiki page. If a meetup is cancelled, you may not get any notice of that. Please note that the RSS feed generated by the calendar here on this website is also very simple, and does not send out new notifications when a calendar item is changed. The mailing list and this web page (specifically the "next meetup" page) should be considered the authoritative sources of information.
