Miranda Rondeau is a Internationally recognize singer, musician, Remo frame drum artist and  teacher. She sings to remember and to connect to soul, chanting in a devotional language of her    own. She is inspired by the Beloved, the Ancestors, the Mystery, the Sun, the Wind, the Water, the Earth and the Inward Journey. She has been performing since 1994 both as a soloist and within  various percussion ensembles. She has been teaching the frame drum for the last 16 years. Discovering the frame drum was a HOMECOMING when she first saw her late frame drum teacher Layne Redmond 20 years ago.

She had the honor to study, assist and perform with Layne Redmond. Life changing, she saw the importance of finding other women frame drummers and initiated the social media pages for     Women Frame Drumming Page as well as the youtube channel all of which are dedicated to Layne.

She has opened for Dead Can Dance, Starhawk, Daniel Pinchbeck, Grandmother Agnes Baker and  Aamo Bambo of the 13 International Grandmothers. She's performed for North American Frame     Drum Festival, Tamburin Mundi Frame Drum Festival, Germany, American Frame Drum Gathering, World Sacred Music Festival as well many consciousness raising events and rites of passage.

Temple of the Goddess has suspended all Thursday night meetings in 2015 (Full Moon, Moon Lodge, Tantric Dance, and Shamanic Journeying) due to the sudden transitioning of Priestess Kamala to the Other Side. I know all those who attended her Moon Lodge, Tantric Dance Classes and/or any of the last two years of the Temple's rituals will remember her as compassionate, creative, and dedicated. Always thinking of others before herself, she will be forever loved and always missed.

When the meetings resume, we will announce them here and send out a general notice.


690 E. Orange Grove Blvd. Pasadena, CA 91104

Participants MUST RSVP by the Tuesday before the actual event. Call 626.765.7959 and leave a message containing your name, the event which you want to attend, and a phone number and/or  email address where you may be reached in case of cancellation. All classes and circles are No     Alcohol events.

Full Moon Circle  (when the moon is in her bright phase) - Once a month, full moon goddess7:00 pm (the door    locks at 7:30) to 10:00

Women, men, and children accustomed to quiet ritual are welcome.

A small group gathering, casual with an opportunity to participate in  a deeper ritual than is possible at our larger Sabbat rituals. After casting a circle, we briefly share where we are in our lives, and have  a communion of fruit juice and bread. We often use divination tools to draw down that which we wish to bring into our lives or release or trans- mute those things in our lives that no longer serve us as they now are. Then we go on a guided journey. Afterward we discuss (if you wish) your journey and usually have a physical activity to link the journey to the real world (such as after a journey of the heart, we may cut out paper hearts and write the names and communications of the people we have met on the journey). After opening the circle we have some time to snack and talk with like-minded Pagans.

Items To Bring: A notebook or journal to record your experience, a personal sacred for the altar   during the ritual (if you wish), a small refreshment to share.

Facilitated by Pythia, Temple of the Goddess priestess

moon phase border

Moon Lodge (New Moon-the dark phase of the Moon) - Once a month,  7:00 pm (the door locks      at 7:30) to 10:00

Women only for this event.

As women, we gather to honor and celebrate the Moon Mother and her cycles which we embody with her sacred gift of rhythm and blood. Together we will celebrate stories of our own   moontime, from our experiences of menarche to menopause. We will share stories of Her ebb  and flow, reconnecting ourselves with these divine and timeless cycles. Our repose in this dreamtime  within the safety of a circle of sisters has the power to heal and reunite our deeper selves with the natural world.

Dress comfortable and bring a comfy pillow and blanket to snuggle in. Bring any sacred offerings you may wish to share with the Goddess on Her Altar during the ritual. And a decadent snack to share   with your sisters.

Facilitated by Kamala, Temple of the Goddess priestess

Shamanic Tantric Dance


Shamanic Tantric Dance suspended.

Series of five classes - monthly. 7:00 pm (the door locks at 7:30) to 10:00

Women only class.

A series of five classes, Shamanic Tantric Dance is a meditation in motion, a sacred dance spontaneously sourced from body impulse. As each woman dances, movement following the energy flow in her body, she is witnessed by the other women. No dance experience needed. Just a desire to move to your unique power coursing through your body.

In a Sacred Circle of Sisters, Come Home to Your Authentic Self.

Facilitated by Kamala, Temple of the Goddess priestess, and teacher/practitioner of Shamanic   Tantric Dance; and Rev. Xia, Temple of the Goddess Founder and priestess, and teacher/practitioner of Shamanic Tantric Dance.

Shamanic Trance Meditation Circle

wakan tankaWomen & Men -  7:00 pm (door locks at 7:30) to 10:00 p.m.

This is not a "learn how to drum" class, but deep meditation instruction. At these gatherings you will learn something about Shamanistic history and   what a Shaman does when she or he moves into a trance and   enters another reality. If you've wanted a different way of meditating to "sort things out" then this might work for you. We will journey to the Lower World and meet Power Animals and journey to the Upper World and meet with our Guides/Teachers. In addition to the trance work, the meetings will discuss various topics including:

   *   What is Shamanic Trance Meditation and where it has been in practice.

   *   Spirit Guides & Power Animals - how to obtain one and what they do for you.

   *   Relevancy of Shamanic Trance Mediation in today's world.

Class facilitated by Pythia, Temple of the Goddess priestess, graduate of Michael Harner's Core Shamanic Workshop, and practitioner of Shamanic Trance Drumming for over 24 years.
