This magnificent refuge is inside you. Enter. 
Shatter the darkness that shrouds the doorway...
Close your eyes and follow your breath to the still place that leads to the invisible path that leads you home.

St. Teresa of Avila

About Temple of the Sacred Feminine

Temple of the Sacred Feminine is a sanctuary within our own embodied hearts, where the incandescent flame of the One ignites our deepest longing for the Divine Feminine, aka Home. What we long for, longs for us.


Loving presence and attention are given to the impermanence, imperfection, and incompletions that Life offers us as kindling for the holy fire of being with what is, tending broken hearts, trauma, awakening into our essential nature as joy, and connecting with the Sacred Feminine within and around us.


The Temple offers a vessel where transformation and transmutation occur in the embrace of the Mystery and Shakti Ma. We welcome women and men.

Sheila Foster, MA

I have been working with women since 1978 and founded the Temple of the Sacred Feminine in 1987, a sacred, liminal space where women can follow their longing and enter into Sacred Feminine Initiations.


My work is rooted in a Jungian-transpersonal perspective as well as my own direct experiences since childhood. I invite women who are longing to directly experience their own lives as the Mystery and see the face of the Divine Feminine.


I work in Boulder with individuals, offer online sessions & groups, present to already-formed groups, and offer retreats, workshops, and trainings. 



Samyama Healing

Samyama is a profound yogic practice, named in the Patanjali Sutras, for entering and abiding in the boundless Great Heart of Silence. The practice offers refuge to any emotion, no matter how deep or dark, to grief, fear, and resistance, as well as our untamed joy, unconditional love and presence.  

Temple of the Sacred Feminine

Perhaps the deepest, most unknown ambiguous loss that both men and women share is the loss of knowledge, awareness and direct experience of the Divine Feminine, the Kundalini Shakti. This is the heart of our deepest longing, and what we long for longs for us.

The Way of the Wounded Healer

When we answer the Call to serve, we fulfill a covenant with the Great Mystery to walk a path of initiations, beyond anything we could ever imagine, in order to better serve others.
