'Dedicated to the Goddess
in us all’
||For Minister Penny Slinger
Hills (see PennySlinger.com)
the Goddess has been a strong moving force in her life
for many years. In 1993, when she was in the process
of separating from her Tantric partner and spiritual
teacher of 20 years, going through a dark night of the
soul, she had a powerful experience of her direct connection
to the Goddess. At that time she totally committed herself
to the path of the Goddess and asked Her to use her
as a vehicle for Her work. This was the dedication to
which Penny committed the rest of her life.
|In 1994 she was recognized
by the great humanitarian, entrepreneur and yogi, Dr.
Christopher Hills (see DrHills.com and GoddessInternational.com).
Christopher passed away at the beginning of 1997. The
conditions of his passing and the spiritual work that
was done by Christopher Hills prior to and after he
crossed over, give full indication that Christopher
is now an Ascended Master. Although he is no longer
in the flesh, he continues to be a guiding light for
the emergent Goddess energy, working with us from the
spiritual realms to fulfill the vision he held so close
to his heart.
He built the Goddess
Temple as a Sanctuary for the Goddess. It was constructed
with divine guidance along the principles of sacred geometry.
He named the land ‘The Garden of Forgiveness’. The Temple
is situated on a 35 acre estate in the Redwood forests.
Dr. Hills recognized a deep spiritual connection with nature,
and created many sacred shrines throughout the groves. His
ashes are enshrined in the Grove called ‘The Magnificat’.
This grove was named by Christopher and represents the moment
of the annunciation, when the Virgin Mary is told she is
with child, and the showering down of divine energy and
joy that happens in that moment. Dr. Christopher Hills entrusted
Penny with the guardianship of the Temple and Redwoods estate.
Over the years many gatherings and ceremonies have been
held here in honor of the sacred nature of this place and
in order to share the blessings that it holds.
The Goddess Temple sees
itself as a prototype for spirituality in action and as
a shining example on the planet that confirms, ‘Yes, we
can live our dreams’. It feels of crucial importance at
this time on the planet to bring everything back to the
heart. This is one of the great principles that the Goddess
represents. If all dealings in finance, business and commerce
were to be first and foremost checked out by the heart,
we would have a very different world now. The Goddess wants
that world, and we in her service at the Temple have dedicated
all we are and all we can do to help bring in this evolved
perspective. It is all rooted in sense of self. How big
is the self? Once one understands the vastness of the true
Self, which includes all creation, then we will begin to
treat all other beings, animate and inanimate as extension
of ourselves, not separate. This is the healing the Goddess
wishes to bring to each individual for the health and well
being of the planet herself. Through sacred arts and conscious
intention the Goddess Temple hopes to spread Her message
far and wide. As Christopher Hills used to say, “The Goddess
needs to press the heart button of the planet, then everyone
will wonder why they ever did things in that old energy
|Our intention is for
the Goddess Temple to be a glowing beacon of Goddess
light for the planet, showing that to live by Her principles
and love is the way to create Heaven on Earth, in our
hearts and in our daily living reality. We wish to exhibit
that it is possible to live a spiritual life while engaging
with the world. It is possible to have everything one
does and is, every choice one makes, directed by spirit.
The path of the Goddess is to unite spirit and flesh
in the glorious celebration that is true conscious living.
We are Her examples and we seek the support of those
whose hearts have awakened to the call of the Goddess
to help us make this work. To prove that miracles can
happen and that humans do not need to be trapped in
limitation, to see the vast potential of the human being,
to live a life of magic, and love once they are connected
back home to the heart of the Goddess.
The team at the Temple
have received Goddess-given gifts of artistic and
creative expression enabling them to craft the energy
of the Goddess into beautiful offerings that can go
out far and wide to spread her vibration.
