Goddess Temples around the world

It’s great to see so many Goddess Temples opening up – we now know of quite a number, so have organised the list to make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for.

Also good to see people using pop-up temples while they fundraise and look for permanent accommodation – we’ve started a new section on here for these, so if you do this, let us know!  We have an interesting article on this site about pop-up temples.

The Netherlands – Hillegom

nehalenniaThe story of the Dutch Goddess Temple begins in the year 2000 when two women meet: Manon Tromp and Sandra Warmerdam were both on a journey of spiritual growth. Sandra initiated as a Priestess in 2002 and during her initiation made a promise to the Goddess to bring her back to Holland.

Together, Manon and Sandra decided to join hands in bringing the Goddess back in Holland. They attended spiritual fairs where they spoke of their beliefs and their goal: a Goddess Temple in Holland; a spiritual space to share with people their love for the Goddess. They also organized sacred tours to Avalon, wanting to share their love for this magical place with other people. In no time they had about 150 people who were interested all over Holland, Belgium and even France. In Holland there is very little provision for people who are interested in the Goddess. There are almost no Dutch books about the Goddess, and fewer known places to visit, so there is a lot of work to do.

USA – Utah

Utah Goddess TempleThe 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.

Gaia’s Garden is a wonderful location in Kew East, Victoria, Australia, which contains a sacred ceremonial space, labyrinth and meditation spaces. We conduct workshops and study circles as well as allowing for small groups and individuals to privately use the spaces by negotiation.

While we acknowledge that there are men who are also on this journey we have reserved the garden for women who often do not have the resources to explore their spirituality in harmony and peace.
