Can you help with an upcoming event?


Monday, May 1, we will be celebrating Beltaine, but this year will be much different than in years past.


Temple founder Gen Vaughan is sending a videographer to create a fund raising film that day. We are hoping to get lots of people out to support the Temple and this project.


We’d like to have one or two workshops happening in the pavilion at 4:00 pm, followed by dancing the Maypole at approximately 5:30 pm, a potluck feast in the pavilion from 6:30 to 8:00 pm, and then ritual in the Temple. We need lots of women, children and men to attend!  (Remember this will be filmed.)


We need folks to sign up to give or participate in a workshop, and will need 8 people to dance the Maypole (who willing to practice before hand!) LOL, and lots of great potluck feast food.


We want to showcase the many types of activities available at the Temple, so if you have ideas please contact Candace Ross asap at 702) 569.0630.


And please RSVP that you will be here, and at what time.  We need your support to make this event a success!


Thank you sooo much!

Sekhmet’s Sacred Annointing Oil

This special anointing oil was Blended and Blessed in Her Nevada temple as the Super Moon was rising on November 14, 2016.  The oil was then taken to the center of the Labyrinth and placed between the Goddess’s hands to charge beneath the energizing rays of this once-in-a-lifetime Super Moon.  The oil can be used for anointing during your special ceremonies or rituals.  It can be diffused for aromatherapy or to strengthen your bond to Sekhmet or Her temple.  Close your eyes, breathe deeply, and allow the subtle aromas to transport you to Her temple at Cactus Springs, or perhaps all the way to Egypt.  This anointing oil uses a base of extra virgin olive oil and a special Sekhmet-inspired blend of essential oils to create a unique spiritual experience.

Oils to Connect with Sekhmet:

Bergamot – dispels fear; uplifting; antidepressant
Cedar – strengthening; stimulant; connects to the ancient world
Cypress – opening; improves spiritual communication
Frankincense – purification; meditative; connects to ancient world
Sage – purification; enhances memory and concentration

Elemental Oils:

EARTH: Silver Fir Needle – uplifting; stimulation; motivation
WATER: Lavender – psychic awareness; healing; spirituality; relaxation for meditation
AIR: Lemon – renewing; inspiring; motivation
FIRE: Cinnamon – strength; protection; sexual energy

It will be many years before the moon is this close to the Earth again.  We only have a limited supply of this powerful, Lunar-enhanced oil available.  When it is gone, it is gone forever.  It is only available at the Temple of Goddess Spirituality Dedicated to Sekhmet.  We have packaged this oil in a unique red one-ounce bottle.  It is available for $5 per ounce.  Shipping and handling is an additional $2 if you cannot pick it up at the temple.  All proceeds benefit the Temple of Goddess Spirituality Dedicated to Sekhmet.

September, 2016 Events at the Sekhmet Temple

Hello Family!

Please mark your calendars for these upcoming September events:

. Thursday, September 1 – Women’s New Moon: Potluck at 7:00 pm, followed by Craft Class at 8:00 pm (Women Only)
. Friday,  September 16 – Community Full Moon Celebration: Potluck at 7:00 pm, followed by ritual in the Temple at 8:00 pm (Open to All)
. Thursday. September 22 – Community Mabon Celebration: Potluck at 7:00 pm, followed by ritual in the Temple at 8:00 pm (Open to All)
. Friday, September 30 – Women’s New Moon Circle: Potluck at 7:00 pm, followed by ritual in the Temple at 8:00 pm (Women Only)

One of the most commonly asked question I get is “What is a potluck?” According to Wikipedia: A potluck is a gathering where each guest contributes a dish of food, often homemade, to be shared.


It is, but I feel it is much more than that. A potluck is a coming together of people, often strangers and sharing a meal, “breaking bread.”


I have heard drummers say you cannot drum together and remain indifferent to each other. I feel the same way about sharing a meal. Sitting together sharing a meal, especially a meal that everyone has contributed to, is a bonding experience, a communion.


When you come to potluck, please bring a healthy dish to share that will serve at least 4 to 6 people. When people ask me what they should bring, I always tell them to bring something they want to eat, as it is impossible to know what else will show up!


Greet people you don’t know as well as those you do. A potluck is an opportunity to bond with others and feel the oneness shared by all life.


Blessed be!
