You have the need and the right to spend part of your life caring for your soul.

Pilgrimage is a way of life

In our Temple, we believe that pilgrimage is a way of life. Each moment in time and every place we visit can be a sacred state of grace when we observe things through the eyes of Goddess. As part of living our beliefs, our Temple members and guests journey to spiritual sites, bathe in healing waters, attend conferences and conventions together, perform ceremonies in nature, make offerings to the Earth, and host retreats to nourish the soul.

The Mt Shasta Goddess Temple has some wonderful trips and tours scheduled for 2018-2020. Each travel group is intentionally small, and your trip fee includes lodging, guide, transportation, activities, breakfast, and translator services. Look where we’re going and join in if you feel moved!
