The Temple of Place is a non-static place of worship. It is found within the natural landscape and is made manifest through the awareness of awakened individuals. We Connect, give tribute, honor, make connection and communicate with the sacred energy of Place.

The Earth is our temple.

Templeofplace.com was Founded by Priestess of Avalon, Mary Samantha  in 2002. Since then, She has established trainings unique to the topography, history and mythology of the lands known as California and Oregon. Her trainings have opened the door for individuals who wish to strengthen their relationship to the Earth in a sacred way through training and Practice of the “Wheel of Place” in which they live.

“The wheel of Place” is a medicine Mandala and seasonal wheel that has been used since time immemorial to express and embody the energies of life, growth, maturity and Death. A microcosm of the greater reality, the Wheel of Place is a meditational tool used for spiritual development and strengthening. Knowledge of this wheel makes it possible for the individual to connect with the energy of place, its’ medicine and lessons of life present in the power of the landscape.
