The Temple of Nature is a small group of people who share philosophies, techniques and practices of Earth-centered spirituality.
Our purpose is to investigate, maintain and promote the spiritual teachings of Earth-centered traditions that celebrate the sacred circle of life and instruct us to live in harmony with the rhythms of Nature.
In our tradition we celebrate the seasons and grow together in a supportive, egalitarian and casual environment.
Our members draw inspiration from the cycles of the seasons, the beauty of the complexity of the natural world and the intricate relationships between human beings and other forms of life on our planet.
We are a family-friendly group that welcomes spiritual seekers who want to participate in community. Our spiritual services include encounters / ceremonies with writing, poetry, music, dance and rituals of traditions centered on Earth. We respectfully study indigenous religious practices as well as the philosophies of ancient cultures to incorporate into daily life the most useful resources to enhance personal development and to improve our quality of life.
We welcome those who identify themselves as freethinkers oriented to spirituality centered on Nature and others who prefer not to define their creative and open spiritual path. Our universal desire is to share in community and support each other as we honor Life and our common mother, the Earth.
At the individual level the goal of the Temple of Nature is to awaken the potential of the human soul to its maximum expression through spiritual arts (including magickal arts) and communion with Nature and the spiritual plane.
At a higher level, the Temple of Nature exists with the purpose of promoting the practice and understanding of spirituality centered on the Earth, enabling the creation of networks among spiritual seekers inspired by Nature, educating the general public about Spirituality based on Earth, producing educational materials based on spiritual and religious perspectives centered on the Earth, promoting inter-faith dialogue, encouraging the use of music, dance, visual arts, poetry and the creative rituals in celebration of Life, providing a place of encounter and adoration, facilitating healing relationships with the Earth and the other children of Earth.
In addition, the Temple trains, certifies and ordains spiritual/metaphysical educators and clergy as well as spiritual/natural/holistic healers.
