Sekhmet Temple, Indian Springs, NV

Daughters of the Goddess is a Dianic temple that holds open rituals and celebrations for womyn and girls in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our High Priestess Leilani is part Hawaiian and brings the energy of Aloha to the work we do here. She is the ritual director of our Temple.

All womyn and girls are encouraged to participate in the facilitation and development of the Temple if they feel called. Our behind the scenes group, Kokua , is for those womyn and girls who are dedicated to deepening and manifesting the mission of Daughters of the Goddess. For more information about us and what we do, please visit our temple page.

Daughters of the Goddess also has a Temple Priestess training program for those interested in deepening their dedication to the path in this Temple.

On our Open Circles, Deepening, and Event pages you will find a current schedule of rituals and celebrations. If you have any questions or want more information please feel free to contact us.

We also publish a newsletter and invite you to read the current edition as well as previous ones. For more information on the behind the scenes work please see our Aloha Moon News.

Thank you for visiting our website; we hope to see you soon at a Daughters of the Goddess circle. Blessed Be!
