Do you feel it? The thrum of eternal wisdom galloping through your blood,
the ancient and steady song that your bones sing quietly to you all night?
Do you yearn to know the Mystery?

What is a Priestess?
The Priestess Path Program

 

What is a Priestess?

A Priestess is a vessel of Eternity… a servant of the Goddess, of Truth, of Beauty, of Wisdom, and a conduit of Love.  She is a woman awake in her femininity and the power of the Goddess in her body temple.  She is a spiritual activist doing the work of the Divine in the world. A seeker, a mystic, a poetess, a dancer, a lover, a warrior, a mother, a sorceress, a crone, the Priestess allows all of the ways of the Lady to live in her.  She is a revolutionary force of kindness and compassion and strength and fortitude.  Dancing with the elements, she practices self-love as a devotion to the Goddess.  She listens. She responds. She is still and moving at the same time.  From her connection to Source, she is a beacon of spirit and soul, radiating blessings around her and enlivening any being who comes into contact with her.

Everyone is the artist of their lives, and the Priestess is trained to become a devotional artist of service and healing. She is rooted in her internal relationship with spirit and from there she can do inspired work in the world. A priestess can be a healer, a stay-at-home mother, a teacher, a CEO, a hermit; the particular expression of her service is as unique as each woman on the Path.  When a woman reclaims this archetype, she enters into seriously playful intimacy with the powers that create our lives.  She frees herself from the domesticated mind and roams purposefully in the wilds of her heart, letting her authentic nature guide her.

One of the names of the Goddess is, “She Who Hears the Cries of the World.” The Priestess hears these cries, she feels them in her body, indelibly etched in her cells.  The Priestess has an inborn sense of responsibility – literally the “ability to respond,” – which motivates her to a life of service. She cultivates her life as a practical mystic, being a leader by her radical choice to fully inhabit her feminine nature.  The Priestess is a pillar of support and a chalice of guidance as humanity writes this next chapter of the Great Story.

The Priestess Path Program

The Priestess Path is an incomparable journey of personal growth and spiritual evolution.  It will open the portal of your heart, deepen your knowing of your purpose, and expand your reality.  The program is designed as an experiential mystery school, with all studies based in the Western Mystery Tradition and indigenous shamanic practices of Europe and the Americas.  This is education that develops your direct intuitive knowledge of Source… it is an answer to the wild invitation of the imaginal landscapes where reality is sung into being.  We can develop relationship with self and nature to such a degree that we can fully realize our embodiment of this realm and live it in our communities. This is where true magic happens.

Apprenticeships consist of:

  •  2 bi-monthly phone or Skype calls, 1 hour each
  • 2 High Holy Day Gatherings (weekend immersions)
  • Solar Return astrology reading for the Initiation year
  • Monthly Dark Moon Transmission
  • Wheel of the Year guidebook
  • Private FB forum for apprentices and private facilitated FB Dream Circle.

 

Year One: Metamorphosis

The first year is about a radical reorientation in your life.  A year of unbecoming, of healing, and of letting go of paradigms that limit perception and possibility. It is a year of developing kinship with the natural world and intimacy with yourself.  It will dismantle the structures of self that are ready to die so that your soul can be liberated and shine in all its glory.  It is about softening and receptivity.

  • Learning the wheel of the year through rituals that honor and celebrate the 8 High Holy Days
  • Connecting with guides, plant, animal and spiritual allies
  • Introduction into the Magical Arts
  • Meditations to open perception (a balance of active guided journeys and receptive Sacred Silence meditations)
  • Movement classes to free consciousness in the body
  • Solitary and group exercises to increase psychic sensitivity and develop intuition
  • Establishing relationships with the elements: Air, Fire, Water, Earth
  • Orienting to the inner realms and spiritual dimensions of existence
  • Astrology for Priestessing
  • Story-telling of creation myths, goddess traditions, women’s wisdom faerie tales
  • Medicine making for physical and metaphysical healing
  • Seasonal craft projects

The first year culminates in initiation as a Priestess.

 

Year Two: Mastery

This second spiral around the seasons takes you further into the dance of co-creation.  As we walk the Path, the rhythm of nature teaches us through the alchemy of repetition. This is one of the powerful teachings of Time and Space.  As in any relationship, intimacy develops through the conscious cultivation of presence.

  • Delving into and embodying archetypal energies
  • Deepening relationship with the elementals and allies
  • Choosing a focus to develop your magical presence/personality
  • Anchoring your awareness through consistent practice of ceremony
  • Dreaming practices
  • Blood mysteries
  • Healing arts
  • Priestessing in the world through community service projects

The second year leads to Crowning as a Level 2 Priestess.

 

Year Three: Mystery

The third year is devoted to preparing for High Priestess initiation. At this level of training, a woman’s commitment, faith, and purpose are exceptional.  We make magic with every breath we take, every word we speak, the thoughts we focus on, the feelings we emanate. The High Priestess year cultivates a level of impeccability and surrender that makes initiates adept in the heart of these Mysteries.  She learns to teach and train women in the ways of the Priestess. This third spiral is an opportunity to fully ennoble the heart and therefore to be able to consciously channel potential into being.  It is a return to origin and an expansion into the very radiance of the Creator.  When we become one with that brilliance, we are something entirely different than we were before.

The third and final year of the program culminates in High Priestess initiation, an irrevocable threshold of alchemy and evolution that requires oaths that fully bind a woman’s life in service to the Goddess.
