Standing Stones

Just as a point of clarification, because it has been brought up; the stones pictured in the banner for Temple Of the Standing Stones do not depict a physical location in Arlington, Texas now or in the future. They are, from left to right.

Drombeg Circle, West Cork, Co. Cork, Ireland.

The Ménec alignments, the most well-known megalithic site among the Carnac stones.

As cool as it would indeed be, no one in the North Texas Pagan community that I am aware of has the resources available to erect stones like these for a temple and the only standing stones in Arlington, Texas that I am aware of are Caelum Moor at Richard Greene Linear Park which were built by a Christian sculptor, Norm Hines, in the 1980s at a different location in Arlington and are now owned by the city.

My apologies for any confusion but our temple, like many Pagan groups currently in existence, will meet at a humble home. In this case located in southeast Arlington except for times that we choose to meet at rented space such as at Arlington, UU church. I am but a simple man with simple resources. But big dreams! If, however, I should ever hit the lottery, then you may see stones like these erected somewhere.

Thank you! 🙂

  1. I figured those pics were from the old world.I have a 30 ft diameter stone circle with a fire pit in the center.Also have a stone alter.A 2 ton stone slab sitting on 3 stone uprights. Underneath a huge live oak called the Green Cathedral.On 400 acres 50 miles north of Ft Worth.

    1. I see. Well, if in the future, you decide you might like to consider renting it, please keep us in mind. Esoteric Path of Enlightenment might like to hold a future gathering of the tribes at such a place.

  3. My house is built on the edge of a limestone quarry that was mined in the 1880’s when they built the railroad.That is where the stones came from.I have LOTS more.

    1. That’s been a very long time. Maeven and Walter only recently moved back to the area. They are not currently involved with the PPD planning committee though. I hope you make it out. It would be good to meet you.
