About this Course

Practical Priestessing Initiation Program Details

April 9-October 5, 2018

Gathering the women to circle, celebrate, and sing…

Do you feel that divine hum of resonance in your bones when you hear the word Priestess?

Do you want to take a journey into your womanspirit wisdom?

Do you want to learn tools, resources, and rituals for practical priestessing?

Do you want to reach out to other women in sisterhood and facilitate powerful circle experiences?

This online course is both a powerful, personal experience AND an intensive training in practical priestessing for facilitating transformative circles, celebrations, rituals, and gatherings. You will listen to your deep self, access your inner wisdom and prepare to step into circle as guardian and guide for other people who are hungering for depth, connection, restoration, and renewal in today’s busy world.

This class now  includes an optional live retreat and initiation ceremony at the close of your training experience, held with my sacred women's circle in beautiful Missouri, deep in the forest and beside the river. This retreat is not required, you may still register even if you will not be coming to the live component. Notes: Travel expenses to the retreat are not included, but lodging, food, ritual, and projects are included at no additional cost. The dates for the closing retreat are September 14-16, 2018.

Do you thrive in a small group atmosphere with lots of support, interaction, feedback, and personal attention?

This intensive program is limited to 25 women, to allow for deep connection and dedicated attention.

This course prepares you for priestess work in a variety of settings, including women’s spirituality circles, seasonal ceremonies, family celebrations, rites of passage ceremonies, rituals, and retreats.


Your online experience includes…

  • A six month  immersive journey over the course of a spiral path of initiation and experiencing...
