Begins May 16, 2021 and continues for four months.

Gathering your community 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 own inner wisdom and leadership ability?

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

Do you want to reach out to others in sacred community and facilitate powerful circle experiences?

Program begins May 16, 2021.

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.

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

This intensive program is limited in size to no more than 30 people 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, multi-gender groups, seasonal ceremonies, family celebrations, rites of passage ceremonies, rituals, memorials, weddings, and retreats.


Your online experience includes…

  • A four month  immersive journey over the course of a spiral path of initiation and experiencing...
    • Knowing Self (Maiden Unit)
    • Might of Creation (Mother Unit)
    • Gathering the Women (Crone Unit)
  • Each unit includes a ceremony, over five hours of audio lessons and walkthroughs per section, meditations, discussion questions, journaling exercises, reading assignments, exploration of ethics and professional practice, training in group dynamics and leadership, intensive projects, and prompts designed to take you deep into the practical priestessing "blessing basket."
  • Self-designed priestess practicum in your own community
  • Live interaction, support, feedback, and conversation via a private Facebook group.
  • Access to the course materials for 365 days from start date.
