Why Support a GODDESS TEMPLE? Our Members Speak ...
"A Goddess Temple speaks to the truth of who Woman is and empowers her to live her life more powerfully and joyfully."--Mata Moerae, Naiad Priestess, Circle of Stars, Irvine CA
"It takes a Goddess Temple to bring the full glory of Woman into the present. It takes a Goddess Temple for me to know who I am." --Anna Dresdon, Circle of Stars, Museum of Goddess History & Culture Coordinator, Los Angeles, CA
"A Goddess Temple gives spiritual, emotional and physical balance to every being in the universe; a Goddess Temple teaches a balanced approach to all aspects of life. Come and experience what is the essence of divinity at this Goddess Temple."-- Blessed Be
Marsha Lange, Melissae Priestess,
Circle of Moon, Covina, CA
"The Goddess Temple is a safe place for women to let their voices be heard. "
Deb Reed, Melissae Priestess, Circle of Moon, Irvine CA
"The Goddess Temple is like a spa for the soul - it grounds and cleanses one's body from the hectic happenings of the outside world and it uplifts one's spirit to believe in oneself and to have hope that everything can change for the better ..." -- Pavlina Dostal, Temple Member, Circle of Earth, Costa Mesa, CA
"Why must we keep a Goddess Temple alive in the modern world? ... to hold for every woman, in trust for her, this birthright: recognition as Queen, safeguarded and protected, kept alive and well, until which time she can return to reclaim and own it for herself. For this purpose, does her Temple exist and continue. Until all Queens Return."
Elle DuBois, Temple Member, Circle of Earth, Lake Forest, CA
"Why a goddess temple? ... It is necessary for freedom of expression."
Denise Dumars, Temple Member, Circle of Earth, Manhattan Beach, CA
"Why should we keep The Goddess Temple going?... to honor the queen, which everyone knows truly, deeply, is the one thing that keeps this world in balance … to honor the divine feminine, to bring balance back to the world."--Christina Shipp, Temple Member, Circle of Earth, Los Angeles, CA
"Why should we all support a Goddess Temple? Because The Temple rituals are so psychologically satisfying. It blows me away that I can do my inner "work" while in circle with women who witness & support me & allow me to be, well, just me!" --Gigi Lenker, Temple Member, Volunteer, Circle of Earth, Tustin, CA

of more beautiful goddess images,
ancient and modern,
Left: "ACHEULIAN GODDESS" The most ancient figure carved by humans of which we know depicts a mother or goddess figure, found in the Golan Heights, shaped from rock by our ancestors between 1/4 million to 3/4 million years ago. Until the past few decades, the famous Willendorf Goddess (center), carved of bone some 30,000 years ago, was held to be the earliest human-crafted work of art and veneration. The Acheulian Goddess predates Willendorf by an amazing quarter-million years, and may be as old as 800,000 years. Center: "EARTH MOTHER of WILLENDORF" About 25,000 --30,000 years old. Found near Willendorf, Austria. Feet pointed to push into earth to stand upright. This is not a "venus" fertility figure as most modern archaeologists have asserted, but rather a female power figure. This is not the nubile body of a fertile young woman, but rather that of an older female in her Queen years (45-65), who leads the tribe with the authority and wisdom of maturity. Right: "GODDESS of LAUSSEL" Also about 25,000 years old. About a foot and a half high, limestone bas-relief of goddess/female painted with red ochre. Dordogne, southwestern France. Goddess points to belly, from which all human life comes, and holds horn with thirteen marks, probably representing the female monthly moontime. These are the representations of the oldest religion of all humanity--Goddess.
