With the enactment of our Beltane Sabbat in May 2015, Temple of the Goddess' Board of Directors authorized a 12 to 24 month hiatus from seasonal offerings, classes, and special events in order to assess, explore, revision, and reorganize the direction and evolution for Temple of the Goddess' future.


We encourage you to find other places to celebrate the Seasons and Sabbats of the Wheel of the Year. The Witches' Voice, a world-wide networking resource for Pagans offers a listing of California: Circles, Festivals, Events, & Workshops.

Our usual seasonal rituals for 2015 have been suspended due to the unexpected death of Kamala. She had been the lead priestess and producer of the the last two years of our ritual theatre. It is difficult moving forward without her. We will announce future rituals on this page. We thank all who have attended out rituals in the past.

 Beltane this May


Beltane & Water Blessing for the Earth

May 3, 2015   Arrival Time: 10:30 a.m.  Ritual: 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 a.m.

(Pot Luck luncheon immediately following ritual)

Center for Awakening Consciousness

690 East Orange Grove Blvd, Pasadena, CA 91104


This Beltane Celebration is dedicated to two beautiful souls who transitioned a short while ago. Kamala, priestess of Temple of the Goddess, and Sandi Duncan, beloved member of Center for Awakening Consciousness, transitioned to the Spirit Realm within the last two months. Both of these amazing women lived lives filled with love and joy and Beltane will be a celebration and remembrance of how they touched so many lives.


Come be with us as the Temple of the Goddess and the Center for Awakening Consciousness celebrate the beginning of Summer by dancing around a MayPole in the back garden.




Beltane is the celebration and honoring of the Earth at Her most fertile time as She receives the seeds that will grow into the fall harvest. It signifies mystical union and harmony with the environment.


The Beltane MayPole is traditionally fashioned from a sacred tree. Sometimes, a pine tree which had been decorated at the last Yule. Both sexes weave in and out around the Maypole. Females (ribbons in the right hand) and males (ribbons in the left hand) twine in and out. Half the dancers move clockwise while the other half move counter-clockwise (every other one). One first passes the person in front of them to the right, then to the left, alternating each time. This weaves the ribbons on the pole creating a birth canal embracing the phallic tree.


Born of Water
A Chant by Lindie Lila


Born of Water

Cleansing, Powerful

Healing, Changing

I Am


Without the life-giving Element of Water,  California and so much of the Earth are suffering a potentially-devastating drought.


After the Maypole dance, participants at Beltane will have the opportunity to take part in a healing water blessing to the Earth.


We will bless Mother Earth with an offering of water poured on the ground . . . to symbolically water and nourish the Earth, welcome and honor the rain during this difficult time of drought. This part of the rite will be done individually, in the context of the larger group, while everyone chants Lindie-Lila's water chant, Born of Water. It will also be symbolic of the natural cycle of giving and receiving. Everyone will GIVE the gift of water to the Earth with a blessing, then go to the main altar under the arbor and RECEIVE a gift of blessed water to take with them.

Imbolc  -  Illuminating the Inner Path

February 1, 2015   Arrival Time: 10:30 a.m.  Ritual : 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Center for Awakening Consciousness
690 East Orange Grove Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91104

Walking a Sacred Labyrinth is a powerful way to propel 2015 into motion. This ancient tool is an initiation of your sacred purpose. The journey inward is a purification and clearing and the return journey is one of dedication and commitment. As we move into spring and begin seeding the year with our goals and dreams, you can utilize this sacred technique to lay the groundwork, set your intention, for the year you want to create in 2015. The power of the ancient labyrinth is an undertaking of a spiritual journey to illuminate the inner path of the seeker.

Please join with Temple of the Goddess and the Center for Awakening Consciousness for a journey into and out of our Chartres-style, 20-foot Temple of the Goddess labyrinth set in the beautiful garden at the Center for Awakening Consciousness. You will have the opportunity to quiet your mind, open your heart, and walk with intention, into the inner realm of the self. This powerful experience while done individually is connected to the community experience.

There will be a pot-luck luncheon afterward, with conversation, to satisfy your body and your brain.
