Phoenix Goddess Temple on KFNX Radio
We've had so much great feedback on temple's first radio appearance in July. It was a fantastic opportunity for us to share our message of love and healing through a new medium, the airwaves. So much so, that we are currently working our own Goddess Talk Radio at KPHX, the valley's liberal voice! To listen to the interview w/ Radha & Tracy, please visit our homepage and click play

Aquarian Nude GoddessFULL MOON IN AQUARIUS
This is the Full Moon to honor freedom, idealism, humanitarianism, egalitarianism, and the revolutionary impulse toward reform, without causing harm to anyone. Aquarius is the impulse to raise-up everyone and leave no one behind. So in service to these calls to action, become responsible and find out what is really happening around you. Get involved in your community, volunteer your time, and raise awareness in your neighborhood. It's summer, have a block party and raise funds for a good cause.
Hello Be-Loves!

Hoping all is well with you! As summer draws to a close, we have more teachers & practitioners joining us in temple, but first, a recap of recent events:
  • The Goddess Way series completed during the month of July.  Over a dozen temple women (members and practitioners) attended with strong interest in the art of the Courtesean.  Well, interested just doesn't quite capture it. Ecstatic is more like it. The new Goddess One certification program will soon be offered at the Phoenix Goddess Temple. Stay tuned to hear about the amazing instructors who will be joining divine forces. Our goal is to become the leading international school of Courtesan Arts & Goddess spiritual sexuality. Plus, there will be awesome courses for men too. More soon...Feel free to visit Amara's blog w/fun pix on the Yummy Yang class at
  • The Feast of Mary Magdalene was delectable! With fresh French cuisine and flickering candles, we had the pleasure of reintroducing ourselves to Temple and taking a chance to look at how far we've come since Janet, Radha & Tracy opened the PGT July of last year.  All shared our thoughts on Mary Magdalene's legacy, and  why we gathered to celebrate Her memory. We were happy to honor our sisters, both present and those who live in other parts of the country for their love and labor in launching the temple.  It was an uplifting and enlightening experience for all! A highlight was the unveiling of an amazing gift of a Goddess Statue, Rebecca the Water Bearer.  The near life-size statue  now resides in the Blue / Water Chamber while we search for the right marble basin to activate her as a water fountain, please call if you have a lead.Feast of Mary Magdalene

A year ago July at the Phoenix Goddess Temple...
 I was camped out in another vacation rental home in north Scottsdale with Radha, Robin, Nikol, Cherie & Kat as we rode out an intense investigation of our healing practices.  Maricopa County and the City of Scottsdale, in conjunction with the F.B.I., were conducting a valley-wide sweep of nearly 100 people on charges of felony prostitution.  We were first visited, then challenged at all levels,  my 24 year old son Ben was even taken in for questioning by Scottsdale police for information about  'his mother's cult'! ( I was somewhat pleased, at least the word cult is associated with both religion and culture).  Our knowledge, commitment and love were the factors that caused the turn-around in law enforcement's perception of our temple and the practices of the Mystic Sisters.  It will take a book to truly give thanks to all who aided us, those who were directly involved with support include Web Guru Mead Rose, Temple Mother Janet Craven, Sisters Carrie Star & Chavarra, Domestic Goddess Miza & my son Ben Wade.  Baba Dez Nichols of Sedona Temple and Ray Stubbs of ASEP in Tuscon provided us with the protection of a regional and national tribe (YOU!) and many of our temple men continued to visit even though they were aware of the potential hazards involved.  One year later, we are now secure and happy in Phoenix, with plans to open a second temple in Scottsdale in 2010.  Much gratitude to all who stood by us in that difficult time, and to all of our real estate agents, landlords (there were many) who chose to see the temple the way we see it: a strong community resource for education around sex and spirit.  Of course, we were truly carried through the darkness by our deep devotional love for Her, the Ma * Matter * Mother in all of Her many names and forms.   We continue to be blissfully "In Her service" !  Lately though, we've been feeling like we need to change our motto  to " SHE IS RISEN", what do you think?     Tracy Elise, Mother Priestess of the Phoenix Goddess Temple
