For over a decade, I have served the Goddess and her people as a community Priestess. This work is my joy. It is my life's calling, and I am deeply grateful for the elders and colleagues who have helped me shape my vocation along the way. 

There are many people participating in this Patreon with whom I have worked in spiritual advisement, via personal sessions and in classes and workshops worldwide. I offer my thanks to you for our work together, which has informed my practice and my vocation. And for those who are just joining me on this journey, I appreciate your support!

I am the Priestess of The Mt Shasta Goddess Temple, creating online offerings for goddess devotees worldwide, and sacred experiences for travelers to the holy mountainYour support of this Patreon account makes the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple possible.

The Mt Shasta Goddess Temple is a living mandala honoring the divine feminine with online and in-person divination, ceremonies, and retreats. We create experiences and services to help people connect with the primal female force of life, death, and rebirth. We honor the Earth, especially our beloved Mt Shasta, and we also make pilgrimages to sacred wells, healing springs, and other holy waters worldwide.

Current projects of the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple include:
Goddess Without Borders
Facebook group for sharing stories of women's leadership & empowerment as well as goddess research and mythos. Open to all.

Mandala of the Moon
Monthly online ceremonies around our lunar themes, featuring shamanic journeys with animal spirits and guides. For members of this Patreon.

Mandala of the Sun
All of the activities of the Mandala of the Moon, plus local in-person events near the equinoxes, solstices, and Temple holy days with divination, chanting, singing, crafts, and devotional activities. Text and email support for day-to-day prayer requests and personal needs is also available to members of this Patreon at this level.

Order of the Black Madonna
Devotees of the dark mother creating community service initiatives and contemplative practices. Contact the Order directly for membership.

Skydancer Sangha
The community of participants in the Temple's daily online Kuan Yin Practice. Open to all.

The Witch's Garden
Facebook group open to all sharing herbals recipes, home remedies, and lore. Open to all.

Tsogyal Latso Support
Annual fundraiser to benefit the birthplace of Khandro Yeshe Tsogyal, the first female Buddha of Tibet. In 2017 we raised $500 to send to the nuns there. Please join us in the next campaign!

Coming Soon! We will be hosting a fundraising campaign to benefit the Winnemem Wintu Tribe.

The Phases of Development of the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple include:

Phase I: Host weekly divinations and monthly ceremonies online for members; collaborate with The Sacred Well to create classes, intimate group retreats and private retreats in Mt Shasta; publish Yeshe's book PRIESTESS: Maxims for Sacred Service; host Mandala of the Sun in-person rituals and Mandala of the Moon monthly online ceremonies for Temple members; begin to gather 1000 statues of Kuan Yin for the Temple shrine.
Phase II: Host a physical pilgrimage to TukJeChenPo Kuan Yin Temple in Amdo, Tibet; host our Black Madonna pilgrimage to sacred sites of Virgen de Guadalupe and Santissima Muerte in Mexico City; continue to gather 1000 statues of Kuan Yin.
Phase III: Receive a donation or purchase a building and land to create an animal sanctuary and to house the 1000 Kuan Yin Statue Shrine.

Rewards
Mandala of the Moon
$5 or more per month
Thank you for joining the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple as a Mandala of the Moon Member. Each week, you will receive a divination and a concrete lesson from Yeshe's book PRIESTESS: Maxims for Sacred Service, based on 10+ years of service as a community Priestess. You will also be invited to submit prayer and energy requests, and to attend monthly Mandala of the Moon online ceremonies featuring guided meditations, energy work, and shamanic journeys.
Mandala of the Sun
$10 or more per month
Everyone who sponsors The Mt Shasta Goddess Temple's work at this level will be able to access the Mandala of the Moon member benefits, plus receive personal text and email support from Priestess Yeshe, and invitations to attend special local ceremonies and events. You will also receive a free digital copy of the book PRIESTESS: Maxims for Sacred Service, when it is published.
One-on-one session
$108 or more per month
In addition to all Mandala rewards in the other two tiers, everyone who sponsors the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple at this level will have a 1-on-1 monthly Illumination Session with Priestess Yeshe, to divine about your questions and discuss your progress on your path. This is an excellent choice for those who seek regular guidance in growing or transforming themselves outside of a group or classroom setting, and is ideal for those who have a good grasp on what they want to share with the world but are still working on establishing best practices for inclusion, structural strength, and sustainability. 
Retreats
$250 or more per month
In addition to all Mandala rewards in the other three tiers, everyone who sponsors the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple at this level will have the opportunity to attend 2 Temple retreats per year free from the usual fees (including all lodging, meals, and retreat activities except add-on services such as spa visits, massages, or things you might want to schedule personally while you are in town). You will be able to select from the Temple's annual cycle of retreats, or schedule private retreats, or a combination of both.
Goals
74% complete
$1000 per month helps the Mt Shasta Goddess Temple to grow and sustain itself, offering more services and supporting more practitioners worldwide. At this level of support, we can maintain the costs of our shrines and practices, and work to expand our growing collection of statues for the 1000 Kuan Yin project. $1000 per month will also support Temple Priestess Yeshe's pilgrimages to sacred sites, where she studies, teaches, performs ceremonies, and takes photographs to share with the world. She will bring you with her virtually on her journeys, with gratitude for your support, and she will offer special perks, such as prayers said at holy places, vials of holy water, and more.
