Who's who at EAGT

Goddess-loving people who give their time and energy to help run the Temple

Here you will find Members of the EAGT Committee. Each person is able to stay on the Committee for one year before resigning. They may put themselves forward for

re-election at the AGM. This way it gives other people a chance to be involved in the running of the Temple and brings new and fresh ideas and ways of working.

Lay Member

Lilith Robberecht

Hi I’m Lilith, and I’m the second lay person of the EAGT Committee. I’m from Belgium and I usually work with crystals and self made manifestation candles.


My interested in the Temple and the Goddess of Andraste peaked when I was in Spain a year ago and I visited our lovely Chantal. I’m ready to learn more about Andraste and about the Temple and help out where I can. I hope that one day (as soon as possible) I’m able to visit the Temple and the committee in person, until then I do everything online and through zoom.
