It says everything about Asheville that the chapel and offices of the Goddess temple are across the street from the First Baptist Church.
Mother Grove Temple was established in 2008. We have a full schedule of programs including public rituals for the ancient holy days (and Earth Day), religious education for adults and children, Full Moon ceremonies, Sunday morning meditation time, and rites of passage by appointment.
Hanger Hall is a unique community. We are one of less than ten schools in the United States devoted solely to middle school girls. We feel that this emerging time of life merits extraordinary attention; and it takes a community of parents, teachers, friends and family to give what is needed.
Thank you for inquiring into our Buddhist practice. You’re invited to explore our website anattasatimagga.org to see the richness of our Sangha and welcome to attend our weekly Sunday meditation and Dharma talks, 9:30-11:30am.
