Sanctuary of Artemis is based in East Lansing Michigan. In ancient times, there was a training center for women and girls to worship, study and develop skills in Her name. This virtual Sanctuary of Artemis is an international religious education grove of the Temple of Diana Inc. We provide scholarship, support, and classes, as well a central guild network, for women to connect around themes contained within feminist witchcraft and the Dianic tradition. We also continue to serve as a local and regional resource and ritual space for women in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. However, our temple includes women in many states including Arizona, California, Oregon, and Hawaii.
In these virtual temple grounds, we use internet technology to help connect women who cannot otherwise study due to limitations of their region or their finances. In addition to personal practice, reflection and documentation, we value personal and experiential encounters and therefore will work together to find ways to meet virtually (or ideally, in person, in intensive experiences).
We offer classes for the Introduction to Feminist Witchcraft (which may serve as a prerequisite for the spiral door program. However, entry into the spiral door has other requirements, and entry is not guaranteed.)
This website also serves as a hub for guild activities. Women can meet and work together to deepen their understanding and practice, connect with others who have specialized skills, and can be used to extend our thinking in areas such as leadership, liturgy, folklore, art, ethics.
