We are an interfaith, non-demoninational domestic temple located in Charleston SC, we cultivate and honor the Divine Feminine and Sacred Masculine through fellowship, song, dance, prayer, nourishment and meditation.
We practice daily prayer, weekly circles, divine dance, mystery schools and honoring the cycles of our bodies, our earth, and our communities. Our goal is to slow down, sense our deep gladness, share it freely and cultivate connection to the living temples across the globe.
Everyone has their own path to dance with the Sacred, and we honor ALL sacred spiritual traditions rooted in love, compassion, and justice, whose rituals and sacred texts inspire and inform the Temple -- along with a healthy dose of merry making! After all, pleasure makes the world go around.
DOMESTIC TEMPLES have been part of faith communities for centuries, led typically by Priestesses and continued by their Daughters. The tradition was forcefully removed when a more patriarchal Christianity came to prominence. It is now time to re-ignite this tradition ~ Divine Mother is calling out, and we must heed the call.
WHY? We are called to celebrate creation by sharing the Divine Feminine through our bodies (our Living Temples), in our neighborhoods and communities, and through creative, artistic and engaging means that nourish people & planet. Today there is a Great Awakening. We are part of this beautiful, interconnected, non-competitive awakening into a more evolved consciousness that recognizes and honors kindness, curiosity, freedom and generosity.
TRADITIONS: Rituals are an important part of sacred dwelling. Whether it is a daily act at the exact same time, or a commitment to 20 minutes a day, carving out a time for contemplative reflection is a potent part of celebrating creation. We encourage a daily contemplative practice, a daily movement practice, a daily service practice, and mindfulness of daily nourishment to cultivate the Divine within and around us.
RITURALS MIGHT INCLUDE: calling the Sacred directions, meditation, yoga, poetry, dance, prayer, song, deep listening, practicing generosity and cultivating self-awareness.
