  • embodied spirituality

Are you curious about the priestess initiate path?

Do you wish you could peek inside a modern mystery school?

If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to dip your toes into the deep waters of the priestess—without delving straight into becoming a mystery school initiate—this self-paced program is just for you.

I’ve curated the best meditations, teachings, practices, skills, workbooks, and journals so that you can explore the foundations of priestess training, preparing you for initiate studies…

Because enrollment to our 12-month/multi-year priestess training is only open once a year, this is a profound opportunity to access all the materials you’d ever need to ready yourself for initiatory temple work.

We were temple priestesses…

In ancient times, our temples were in every corner of the earth, built in every form imaginable—from crystal, to open desert mesa, to the sacred springs that erupted in life from the depths of the Great Mother.

Our mothers and grandmothers took us to the temple as mystery school initiates to become adept in the rituals, arts, and ceremonies of the Goddess.

We lay in dream temples, dreaming our world into being.

With the rhythm of the waxing-waning of the moon, we bled together, speaking in languages of light and vibrational beauty.

We trained in astrology, magic, alchemy, divination, oracle, prophecy, second sight, energy, dreamwork, healing, herbal medicine, the blood mysteries, sacred sound, crystals, and sacred theater.

With the love of the Goddess radiating from us,

we healed and reminded others of their wholeness.

We sat with the scorned.

We aided the ill.

With embodied grace, we held the Mystery in our hearts and wombs.

All of us—men, women, two-spirits, every being—bowed to the Goddess.

We loved Her, honored Her.

Do you remember?

Our temples & mystery schools were systematically destroyed by the patriarchy & church

The winds bit like the sting of a scorpion.
You could taste the bitter air, ripe with blood and fire.
Iron and ash were on the edge of the horizon.

There was an infiltration of fear, swift and sly as a trained intruder.
Eeriness spread, dense as a poisonous fog.
Our sacred spaces became vacant, mired with hostility.
Our music dimmed to hushed chanting prayers.

Fear howled on the ethers, ricocheting across the plains.
We recognized the chill in our bones…
It became the deepest winter of winters.

–The Sacred Call of the Ancient Priestess, Elayne Kalila & Rebecca Cavender

With the rise of the patriarchy and their solar gods, our goddess temples were destroyed.

We were punished, maimed, tortured, killed.

In the last 2,000-4,000 years, all forms of priestess arts and folk medicine became outlawed and banished…

The Goddess and Her priestesses went underground for thousands of years.

Without our sisterhood and temples, it became easy to believe lies the toxic patriarchy told us to stifle our freedom and feminine power.

We’ve been conditioned to distrust our intuition and our innate wisdom.

We still feel the repercussions of this today.

You probably recognize some of these priestess wounds:

You probably recognize some of these priestess wounds:

  • Something “wrong” with you
  • Powerlessness, domination
  • Innate unworthiness
  • Shame of body, intuition, sexuality
  • Not being enough
  • Being “too much”
  • Deep-seated fear of being seen

These stories keep you shackled to a lie, shielding the undeniable truth of your beauty, essence, power, and magic.

These stories keep you shackled to a lie, shielding the undeniable truth of your beauty, essence, power, and magic.

Are you drawn to or repelled by the word, priestess?

Perhaps you’re magnetized to this word…

Maybe it arouses a deep fear within you.

Priestess can evoke ancient memories of joy, devotion, and even painful wounds surrounding sisterhood, your gifts and magic, your freedom of expression, and your purpose.

If you feel a wave of grief or fear, you may hold somatic and epigenetic scars—an imprinted memory because of being ripped from our temples and each other.

With the Goddess seemingly forgotten by much of the world, it makes sense that you
may be confused or unsure of where to begin…

No wonder so many of us in these modern times are seeking mystery schools so we can remember who we are, remember our magic, and heal our priestess wounds.

The Goddess has risen again … and so have we!

This is a rare opportunity to study with a living priestess lineage & reclaim the temple traditions
This program will give you a place to begin unpacking some of this and help you access the keys to unlocking your priestess path.
We must address the horrifying demise of the Feminine in the last few thousand years at the hands of the patriarchy … and heal any of the wounds that keep us “small,” afraid, hidden, and feeling like we don’t belong.

Reclaim the parts of yourself you’ve disowned

Find a deeper connection to your soul

Liberate yourself from past limitations

Begin to address any Priestess wounds

Come, Priestess: Stand in your brilliant, illuminated, natural, embodied state.

This is the homecoming you’ve been yearning for.

Welcome home to this temple, beloved.

Will you choose to enter the potent mysteries of the Divine Feminine?

We have been waiting for your arrival, dear one.

Come, let us tell you a story.
Let us bring you to the remembrance of who you really are.
