The Sylvan Heart Temple is an inclusive temple for people of many if not all pagan religions. It primarily serves the area of Western North Carolina, specifically around Western Carolina University and Asheville as a safe place for those of the pagan faiths to come, be open, meet others, and share in a strong community of like minded individuals and friendly allies. The temple provides space and knowledge to a variety of faiths including but not limited to Wiccans, Heathens, solitary practitioners, Buddhists, and Druids.

However, the temple has had rough times in the past financially as it has attempted to avoid memberships or tithing, subsisting solely on donations unsolicited. Now, with a mortgage and upkeep to worry about it has struggled in an echo of its members own economic woes. All I wish is for the temple to move forward, to get a foot hold it can maintain for years to come until the mortgage is paid off and it can operate debt free. It is a good place, a place that changed my life, a place that has been a heart's home for many others. If for no other reason than that, I love it.
