Our Temple Project

Imagine a place in your community that is just for the Goddess, Our Divine Mother. A place that honors all of humanity and all types of relationships. In this, we envision a space that is not just for the Goddess, but for people who love and honor Her. A place that considers all those who enter as equals, and which serves as a meeting place for those who want a beautiful sanctuary for their most sacred circles and powerful rites, initiations, weddings, and other events.

We've been dreaming such a place, and in the summer of 2004, we set a goal of creating a public Goddess Temple in San Francisco. This is an important project that we realize will take time to achieve. We are continuously raising funds to establish the space, and are actively looking for suitable locations in San Francisco. If you would like to donate funds, time and expertise, or even a storefront space, please email us. We are open to a variety of space options, so if you know of someplace to house our sanctuary, please do let us know!

Our devi mandir will support itself through classes, affordable rental fees for public use, a non-profit storefront (we are a 501(3)c non-profit organization) selling hand-picked items from our pilgrimages around the world (as well as items by local artists), public events, and community donations.

To donate now, please use our PayPal link below. Every little bit helps! Please consider a donation of $5, $25, $50, $100 (or more, if you like!).
