Nevada City Women’s Temple Initiation Day

Date: December 3, 2017
Nevada City, California

An Initiation for women to join the
Nevada City Women’s Temple Group

Facilitated by Helena Montelius and Dominique Youkhehpaz

In Women’s Temple, we remind each other of who we truly are deeper than the borrowed masks and strategies we often take ourselves to be.  We are co-creating a conscious women‘s culture which can awaken and nourish us in the deepest sense.

Instead of enforcing the status quo by focusing on our problems and personal shortcomings, the Women’s Temple Group practices connect us with truth beyond our fears and limited self-images.

From this deeper place within, we learn to navigate through life from clarity and inner guidance.

The Women’s Temple is not a therapy or support group.  It is a space where we come to mirror, celebrate and empower each other.  A space for devotion and deep nourishment where we can drop our masks and let the beauty of our authentic face be seen in all its glory, pain, passion and vulnerability.

After participating in this initiation workshop, you may join the Nevada City Temple Group, which has been meeting Monday evenings for 12 years. The Temple Group is a closed group for only women who have undergone the initiation. Though Temple is held every Monday, women may attend as often as they like.
