Temple Of Mother Earth (TOME) is an international community gathering place for plant medicine and wellness created out of the need for more welcoming places serving people of color. The founding Temple is based in a predominantly BIPOC neighborhood in Southeast Washington DC, offering multi-faceted healing modalities with a primary focus on sacred plant medicines. It is a safe container of spiritual resources and space holders to support everyone in its community as they step powerfully into their sovereignty.

Mission/Purpose

To make plant medicine accessible to all with a focus on the BIPOC community.

Vision

The vision is for the SE Washington DC Temple of Mother Earth to serve as a model for other Temple of Mother Earth entities across the country, serving local communities and making plant medicine accessible to all with a focus on the BIPOC community. It is an international temple of consciousness, spiritual learning and healing center focused on providing the community with service, education, spiritual fellowship, healing practices, guidance, kemetic teachings, and plant medicine expansion. We believe in the rights of Mother Earth, and in protecting the practice of Mother Earth-based on spiritual traditions, ceremonies, and sacred indigenous natural medicines. What is of the Earth is our holy sacrament, and we retain the rights as citizens of this nation to use plant medicines as tools for the benefit of our physical health, spiritual growth, and personal evolution.

Cooperative

The Temple purchased a building in the Washington DC neighborhood of Hillcrest November 2021 that will be developed as a solidarity cooperative based on the Commongrounds model, to be programmed, governed and owned by the local community. It will serve as a community gathering place for plant medicine, healing and integration, with a focus on serving the BIPOC community.

Sovereignty

A primary focus of the Temple is establishing sovereignty. Developing its own token, and culture and economy associated with it, is a priority.
