The Mt Shasta Goddess Temple offers local adventures and retreats around Mt Shasta, CA, as well as global pilgrimages to sacred sites.
Our pilgrimages, led by Priestess Yeshe Matthews, are designed as intimate, magical explorations of holy lands, healing waters, goddess temples, power points, soaring cathedrals, and places of beauty and historic interest. Mt Shasta Goddess Temple journeys are intentionally limited to small groups, no more than 12, to create greater harmony and spaciousness for all travelers. Each pilgrimage is unique, but all of them typically include lodging, transportation, guide and translator, food, and activities.
