4th to 9th June Highden Temple
Within the heart of the feminine lives great mysteries. The whispering of wisdom passed down from ancient lips into her womb; pulsing through her blood. The feminine mysteries cannot be found in books. They already are.
Definition of a priestess
1 : a person authorised to perform the sacred rites
2 : a person regarded as a leader (as of a movement)
“The twenty-first century priestess becomes the vessel who helps create sacred space wherein we can connect to the Goddess within.” - Ruth Barrett
This six day training is a journey of remembering; a deep remembering of the grace held inside the earth, within cycles, spirals and circles. It is the beauty at the core of all life in form, existence manifested.
We will journey back through the rites of passage from childhood to womanhood, anchoring the initiations forgotten through timelines. From this embodied remembering we then take others to drink from these wells of magic and grace.
The core of these teachings are veiled through the power of the heart.
The sacred heart.
Through the doorway of a surrendered heart we enter the temple of Magdalena, in devotion to all life, as love.
Together we will drink the grace of softness, of surrender, and at our core of the fierce love that arises through the mists of our vulnerability.
We will create a sacred and potent temple life with daily rituals, practices, and earth magic.
We will recreate and anchor the ancient priestess temples.
We will live and dance between the veils.
Over the six days we will explore the following teachings;
~ The blood mysteries, womb power and breast magic.
~ The moon, living in harmony with lunar wisdom and moon cycles.
~ The psychic arts - divination, dreaming and intuition.
~ Sacred ritual and spell crafting, creating containers for deep transformation, the energetics of ritual.
~ Erotic wisdom, sexual activation, magnetism and sex magic.
~ Living in alignment with the elements and deepening connections with the natural world, plants, animals.
~ Working with archetypal magic, stepping through and beyond the veils.
~ Embodiment medicine; harnessing life force, listening to the voice of the body, the alchemy of sensuality and pleasure.
~ The heart as a magical tool, sacred heart wisdom.
~ Priestess; a new wave of leadership in service of the heart.
“The priestess is not a teacher or leader on a pedestal, but rather, she is of the highest service. She is in service to her community and to her calling. Being of service is not about placing anyone above or below, but rather creating a mutual relationship of respect between the priestess and the women she facilitates and serves.” -Meredith Rom.
This training is for (queer/trans/cis/...) women all levels of experience, of all ages and spiritual beliefs.
The teachings are designed to be integrated into everyday life, as well as to provide a platform for sacred feminine leadership.
This training reinstates life as a ritual.
You are the temple.
The intention of this training is for women to;
~ emerge with an embodied experience of the feminine mysteries.
~ feel more confident and alive; self loving.
~ harness greater leadership and purpose.
~ be confident holding spaces for others and creating ritual.
~ developed intuitive abilities and sensitivity to the unseen.
~ be deeply connected to the power of her sexuality and eros.
~ be heart activated, a channel for love, for the goddess.
~ be a wisdom keeper for these mysteries; inspired to share them with their daughters, sisters, mothers.
“Today as a modern priestess we don’t live at temples and most of us can’t devote our whole lives to this path. We are career-minded, we are mothers, grandmothers and wives. We are caretakers of our families and our households. We hold many responsibilities and wear many hats.” -Tara Reynolds
