The Utah Goddess Temple is located in Southern Utah, just west of Cedar City on private property. The Utah Goddess Temple was designed and built by Gypsy Jean and her husband of seventeen years Mason. Together using very minimal modern equipment the Utah Goddess Temple was constructed in less than thirty days. She was truly a labor of love, blood, sweat and tears. The Goddess Temple consists of seventy-five percent recycled material, granite stone gathered within five miles of the property, wood harvested from within thirty miles, the mortar was mixed by hand and each stone, log and recycled glass bottle was placed strategically to create a very elemental sanctuary, solid. Our desire and goal has been to create and facilitate safe space for those who seek a more nature based religious sanctuary. On May 27th, 2017 the Temple was dedicated in the presence of thirty-three women. The Temple was dedicated in honor to the Paiute women who worked this land long before we did, to our ancestors who remained with us as we placed each stone, and as a safe space for those who seek an anchor to connect or reconnect with the Divine Mother Goddess through earth based ceremonies, Lunar rites, ancient pagan traditions and practices.
Together as High Priestess and Caretaker/Guardian- Gypsy and Mason host monthly Full Moon Labyrinth walks followed by meditation and contemplation inside the Temple. We are slowly building a community of Heathens, Pagans, Wiccans and those who practice Goddess Spirituality. The Utah Goddess Temple is ALL-Inclusive. The property features a spiral Labyrinth, Medicine Wheel, Raven House that hosts our monthly Red Tents along with the Temple structure that was once a greenhouse and still features an earthen floor. The Utah Goddess Temple is available to visit, rent or host events and workshops inside by appointment or invite only. Guests can walk the Labyrinth, seek solace inside the Temple, attend yearly Women’s Gatherings, participate in workshops, classes and community friendly Sabbats & High Holy Days.
Gypsy Jean has been leading monthly women’s circles and Red Tents in Cedar City Utah for the past fifteen years. She is dedicated to the Goddess in all her many forms and by all her many names. She is a Double Ordained High Priestess and mother to a Dianic Coven “Desert Sage Sisters” the resident Coven of the Utah Goddess Temple. Gypsy is devoted to serving the community through educating, empowering and promoting self elevation. Gypsy actively participates in Priestess Pilgrimages all over the country to further spread the message of the Goddess and offer service to those who seek her.

The Goddess Temple of Orange County is a temple for women of all faiths dedicated to honoring the Sacred Feminine. Located near John Wayne Airport at 17905 Sky Park Circle in the city of Irvine, California, USA.
The Goddess Temple of Orange County’s vision and mission:
“The Goddess Temple of Orange County powerfully, magically holds this vision for the world: that women worldwide are joyfully reclaiming their ancient natural spiritual authority and powers through service to and reverence for The Sacred Feminine, thus restoring kindness, peace and prosperity to humanity and balance with our relations with Mother Earth for the good of all.”
“It is the mission of The Goddess Temple of Orange County to provide a prosperous, harmonious, beautiful and safe physical location, with a powerful, congruent energetic field, through which women, local and worldwide, can compassionately connect to help each other manifest the vision for the good of all.”
The Temple offers two Sunday worship services for women. At our first morning service, “Priestess Wisdom, Peace & Power” Ritual (9:30 am – 10:15am), we work to transform hurtful tribal beliefs. Each month this service focuses on a new series topic connecting everyday life experience with the spiritual.
Our main Sunday worship services (11am -12:30pm) start with drumming and dancing, include candle lighting, often a guest priestess with an amazing message, goddess culture and education, Jewel of the Lineage (honoring a great woman leader from history to the present), Medicine Woman Herb, Animal Totem, Women’s World Healing Prayers, Spiritual Weather Report (astrology) and much more. Always different … always wonderful … always spontaneous flowing of spiritual energy and power!
The Temple is also open to women for personal work and prayers to the Goddess on Wednesday – Friday 12pm – 7pm; Saturday 12pm – 5pm; and Sunday 9am – 2pm.
In addition to the women’s spiritual services, the TEMPLE has special events and selected classes where gentlemen are warmly welcomed. See our calendar at www.goddesstempleoforangecounty.com for full details of events and classes throughout the year.
The Temple of Goddess Spirituality Dedicated to Sekhmet was built in 1993 as the fulfillment of the promise that Genevieve Vaughan made to Sekhmet in 1965 when she asked Her to bless her with children. The Temple is a straw-bale structure covered in stucco. The Temple houses a statue of Sekhmet facing the Nevada Test Site. Across from Her is the statue of Madre del Mundo, originally placed at the Nevada test site in 1987. Both statues were made by Marsha Gomez. Smaller statues of goddesses of many cultures adorn the walls.
The Temple sits fifteen miles east of the Nevada Test Site, three miles west of Creech Air Force Base and about eight miles from two prison facilities. The Temple is a force of peace in the midst of hostility.
All the land where the Nevada Test Site sprawls once belonged to the Western Shoshone. The U.S. government is in violation of the Ruby Valley Treaty, signed in 1863, which declares this land to belong to the Western Shoshone. In recognition of their rights, Genevieve Vaughan ceded the land surrounding the Temple to the Western Shoshone in 1995.
The Temple of Goddess Spirituality Dedicated to Sekhmet was founded on the belief that mothering and women’s values of care are the basic human values.
Because we believe that women are the spiritual leaders in the promotion of these matricentric values and because we want to promote and support women in spiritual leadership roles, all group rituals held on the Temple grounds are led by women and the Temple Fire is tended by women.
The Temple was built to honor Sekhmet, and she shares her space with other manifestations of the Divine Feminine. During ceremony, only the Divine Feminine is honored.
The Temple serves the community as a place for centering and meditation. The Temple and grounds are a woman-based eco-spiritual refuge. The Wheel of the Year and Moons celebrations are open to all. For more information and schedule, please see: www.sekhmettemple.com.
