The story of the Mother Goddess belongs to all genders and cultures. She has always been an accessible deity: the warmth in our hearth, the fire over which to cook, the river whose water we drink, the soil that grows nourishment. She is Mother Nature herself, and for many, the birther of the Cosmos. Throughout time we have seen Her revealed through a myriad of myths and faces: Durga, Kali, Brigid, Pele, Rhiannon, Oshun, Yemaya, Mary, Guan Yin, Freya, Pachamama, Gaia, and so many countless more. She has been revived, recast, and renamed throughout the ages, and her infinite aspects have evolved into a vast array of personalities and stories. However, the primary role of the Goddess has always remained fixed: that of the Great Mother.

 

The Great Mother archetype lives within all of us, both men and women. Her heartbeat is found beneath the layers of worldly living, underneath the stories; her face is that of every face we see, everything we touch, the ground we walk upon and the air we breathe. Having long preceded a male God, She symbolizes the Great Mystery of existence. Rather than an airy, hierarchical deity altogether separate from ourselves, She is found inside of us and in the physical world around us. She is not, nor has she ever been, separate.

 

The images of the Primordial Mother archetype still linger in our psyches: her spirals, triangles, circles, the ebb and flow of her moons, and her watery womb of existence. Her sacred dwelling places include caves, mountains, oceans, rivers, wildflower meadows, streams and waterfalls, under the canopy of sacred groves, in temples built by devotees, in open fields under the moonlight, surrounded by ancient stone circles.

The past several thousand years have seen an attempt to obscure and even obliterate the Great Mother; the result is a world disconnected with and even destroying our very own Earth. However, after millenia of repression and subjugation, we are again witnessing the Feminine rising again. At the New England Goddess Temple, we believe we cannot become whole, cannot make our way back towards recognizing our Oneness, until the Divine Feminine reclaims her place and is fully embraced in the consciousness of humanity. Thus, our Temple is a place to reconnect, to retell the old stories, and to remember who we are: the dreamer, the weaver, the connector, the creator, the keeper of mysteries, the healer, the wise one.

 

 

 

At the

New England Goddess Temple,

we believe we cannot become whole,

cannot make our way back towards

recognizing our Oneness,

until the Divine Feminine

reclaims her place

and is fully embraced

in the consciousness of humanity.

 

 

 

 

 

As the Wiccan saying goes: “As without, so within.” While together our Goddess community journeys in a myriad of ways to find, greet and celebrate the Divine Feminine, ultimately we come to understand that we need to only look within to find the Cosmic Mother from whom we have never been separate.

Her resurrection.
