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.

Pop-Up Temples

England – Norfolk

Norfolk Goddess Temple

Norfolk Goddess Temple

The Norfolk Goddess Temple is a pop-up temple that holds open celebrations around the eight seasonal festivals, usually on a Sunday evening close to the date, and also offers workshops, talks and training. We are dedicated to the Goddess Andraste, also known as Andred, who was worshipped in our sacred land by the Iceni tribe. We have developed a Wheel of East Anglia using indigenous goddesses to our region as well as using the beautiful the Wheel of Britannia. We aim to have a permanent base one day soon in which to celebrate the feminine divine. Our community welcomes people from all paths who feel drawn to Goddess.

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.
