The project was founded when Genevieve Vaughan purchased land between the Mercury nuclear test site and Creech Air Force Base—threshold land to serve as an outpost of peace, and a promise kept to Sekhmet. In October of 1992 she gave the land to the Shoshone Nation honoring the Ruby Valley Treaty. Marking 500 years of Indigenous survival despite colonialism, engaging a long-term agreement to steward the land as temple grounds. Built by women in 1993, the temple seeks to model community leadership, sustainable stewardship, and a return to maternal values.
The leonine Goddess Sekhmet of Egyptian cosmology supports Ma’at, the principle of living in harmony and balance, with justice and Fierce Compassion. She catalyzes healing and transformation through the cycles of life, death, and rebirth. She assists in the composting of colonizing control cultures— encouraging the thriving of all sentient beings, rooted in reciprocity and compassion.

The Temple of Goddess Spirituality Dedicated to Sekhmet promotes Goddess Spirituality, Peace, and the Gift Economy. The Goddess Temple is a project of the Center for the Study of the Gift Economy under the direction of Genevieve Vaughan. Here, feminine values are honored and the Divine Mother is revered.
The white stucco Temple opens to the elements of nature, with archways to the four directions and an open roof to the sky. Peace and reverence live within the temple, welcoming all that come. Together in ritual we celebrate the dance of the earth, sun, and moon. All are invited to pray, meditate, and connect with the Divine Feminine that is within and around us.
