Imagine a small, beautiful, sacred and nurturing place in the woods for you to come to replenish and inspire your heart and soul.
The Chapel of the Divine Mother is a sanctuary that heals the heart and soul by helping people find paths to their own direct experience of the Sacred Feminine. It is a place that bears loving witness to suffering and has the capacity to hold anything that is brought into it with Love and Respect. It is a place to bring your dreams, your visions, your joys, and your truths that have not been spoken. It is a place to allow your consciousness to expand and to become a channel for grace. It is an experience of the Divine flame within yourself and a path to feminine wisdom and spirituality. It is a place that wants to show you the gift you are to the world by mirroring your sacred beauty.
We have been providing a personal and intimate experience for people who attend our services since 2009. We can accommodate up to 20 people each gathering.
The Sanctuary is an outdoor chapel whose beauty and loving presence inspires, heals, nurtures, and reveals.
The Sanctuary Keeper, Kelley (Priest Akin Ajala O'binrin) synthesizes Gnostic, Pagan, Goddess, Nigerian Ifa, transpersonal psychology and Indigenous wisdom & ceremony in Sanctuary services. The foundation of all events at the Chapel is the awesome beauty and power of Nature and Her Forces. She offers individual guidance to those who seek to invoke and embody the Feminine Source. Kelley also has a certification in spiritual/pastoral counseling and an MA in Transpersonal Psychology. During the daytime, Kelley is an organizational change executive in Silicon Valley.
Kelley provides services and events drawing upon Gnostic, Goddess, Nigerian Ifa and Indigenous based-spiritual practices and traditions for wisdom ritual. Contemplation and silent being are also an integral part of our services.
The Mission of the Chapel of the Divine Mother is to provide support, healing, empowerment and nurturing to our members by helping them know and experience the Divine Mother as she appears in Her many forms in sacred spiritual texts, rituals and sacraments. We hope to help heal the imbalance in our society that currently promotes and rewards predominately masculine ways of being. We support individuals in creating a healthy dance between the masculine and feminine energies that make up our existence. We honor and accept the Divine Masculine in all his names but hope to reveal the right relationship of the Divine Feminine in relationship to the masculine which has been obscured by the patriarchal agenda. We provide services regardless of current religious affiliation.
