**Mother Grove Goddess Temple – celebrating the Divine Feminine

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.

Workshops and classes are frequently offered in the little chapel, and “In the Arms of the Goddess” gathers clothing and food for members of the community in need. The temple also manages the Women’s Garden at Herland in north Asheville. Weddings and other and rites of passage by appointment.

MISSION STATEMENT

The purpose of the Mother Grove is to create and maintain a permanent sanctuary where people of all faith traditions may openly and safely celebrate the Divine Feminine.  The sanctuary fulfills the community’s needs which include but are not limited to worship, religious education, community outreach and other charitable and religious activities.  Click here for more information

SheVille Team

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
