Our History

In September of 2000, Rev. Judith Laxer began offering Goddess Worship Service to an ever growing community of those who follow an Earth based spiritual path that includes the Divine Feminine.

Goddess Worship is inclusive. Respect for both the Divine Masculine and Feminine is inherent on the spiral path.

Within sacred space, we learn about the Goddess with time for introspection and prayer.  It is a place to replenish our souls and come together in like-minded community.

Who is Gaia?

Gaia (gai’a) from the ancient Greek language refers to our planet, the Great Mother, She who gives birth to all life.  She was known as the limitless power and source of fertility in the Universe.  We know Her as Mother Earth.  She provides us with everything: food, shelter, clothing, the beauty of nature and the unceasing cycles of life.  Gaia’s love for Her children is unconditional.

Why "Temple" and not "Church"?

We call our place of worship a temple rather than a church because temple stems from the Latin word temperare, which means to modify or balance. A temple is designed to reflect the power and attributes of the Goddess or God for whom it was built.  In Gaia’s Temple. we seek to create balance in our culture by respecting the Divine Feminine and nurturing wholeness.

The themes of the service follow the cycles of the nature and our seasonal journey through time.  They address the common events and experiences that touch our lives, with food for thought on the qualities we wish to embody: love, peace, compassion, healing, devotion and faith.

Gaia’s Temple is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
