As a devotional offering, I have undertaken to illustrate all 13 of the Goddesses of the Mount Shasta Goddess Temple in 2020-21. I created this piece with the gentle direction of Priestess Yeshe Matthews, and together we evoked this unique image of Aphrodite.

Our sensuous Aphrodite is standing above Heart Lake in Siskiyou County, which is located in the hills above Castle Lake, with beautiful vistas of Mt Shasta and Castle Crags. The magical landscape is depicted here in full Spring bloom, and Aphrodite’s pink hair matches the flowers. The doves flying around the goddess symbolise her peace and contentedness. Aphrodite knows that true love begins within, with a desire to cultivate beauty and harmony in oneself, and it flows out into the world, attracting those who are ready to live from the heart and who honour beauty. Her knowing smile and gaze are an invitation, and a challenge...only the brave can find the kind of love that exists in each heart’s depths.

The Mt Shasta Goddess Temple is committed to honouring the Great Mother through acts of spirit, beauty, and service, and we embrace opportunities to help shape a better world for women. Our annual devotional cycle dedicated to Goddesses from many world cultures invites our membership to reflect on the diversity of the female divine, and our practices and teachings inspire women of all colors, shapes, sizes, and backgrounds to discover the divinity within. In our Temple, we believe that every woman is an earthly embodiment of the Goddess.
