Welcome to Sophia Sanctuary!
We are a women's temple in the Eugene area, open to women of all ages and walks of life. We currently are a temple-without-walls, meaning we do not have an actual building we call home. We meet in women's homes and in rented public spaces for our rituals, classes, and other events. Please feel free to contact us for more information.
We hold women only public rituals on the four lunar holy days: Imbolc, Beltane, Lammas, and Samhain; and all are welcome to the four sun holy days: Spring & Autumn Equinox, and Summer & Winter Solstice. We are a private not-for-profit 501(c) 3 tax-exempt religious/spiritual organization, registered with the State of Oregon. All women who are interested in our organization are encouraged to attend these meetings and rituals.
Our Mission Statement
We are a circle of women committed to Healing, Education, Ritual and Service (HERS). We are open to all women and honor all sacred traditions. We are seeking to create a safe haven for women to share their spiritual vision, healing arts, sustainable living skills, social activism, and love for the Earth.
