“We are the myths. We are the Amazons, the Furies, the Witches.
We have never not been here, this exact sliver of time, this precise place.
There is something utterly familiar about us.
We have been ourselves before.”
Robin Morgan – Going Too Far: The Personal Chronicle of a Feminist
MotherHouse and Mystery School of the Goddess are delighted to feature several Priestess Training programs that are available online with experienced and dedicated Goddess Priestesses.
Please contact us or the Priestesses directly with any questions.
You will experience 9 beautifully designed lessons – one each month, filled with lunar priestess teachings and wisdom from the Goddess aspects associated with each month’s moon, and culled from many different cultures and paths – along with rituals and ceremony for the nine moons that you will explore; new, first quarter, waxing gibbous, full, last quarter, waning gibbous (disseminating), waning crescent, dark and new once again. This lunar cycle, or ‘lunation’, offers you a very special opportunity to experience the moon in a personal, intimate way, and to experience a journey of self-discovery with your own cyclical, goddess-like nature.
Experience the many ways that you can work with the moon, such as: using herbs and flowers associated with the moon to make teas and for use in magical lunar rituals, studying your birth moon phase and moon sign for deeper understanding of your feminine nature and power, learn to dream with the phases of the moon, make moonwater potions for beauty, healing and magic, chart your lunar moods and so much more.
This is a very rich, interactive, hands-on course that will teach you many ways to work with the moon’s ever changing essence. Filled with mystical, magical and deeply feminine wisdom, this course is based on Renee’s 30+ years of working with the moon, and The Goddess.
The Priestess Within Mentoring Program places you as a Sacred Celebrant at the center of your life, as a Dedicated Practitioner mediating the ebb and flow of your personal rhythms and divine flow. Through intuitive sessions and custom journey work, we will work together to sync you with Goddess, craft powerful personal ritual and ceremony, and tap the well of wisdom of your Priestess Within.
This opportunity is for the woman who is seeking deeper insight into Goddess, radical knowing of self, and how directed ritual practice may bring a profound unfolding of her spiritual path.
The Priestess Within Series follows the seasons. The three month sessiions begin with Spring 2017 and from there progress to Summer, Autumn, and Winter sessions. Winter also begins the Priestess Within Circle – Priestess Training Program. You may take any or all of the sessions as each season has a different focus and is a complete program within itself.
This course encompasses the essentials of personal ritual, the heart of a priestesses’ daily life, and the first steps toward leading a group.
Your guide for this course is Anne Key. She is a practicing priestess, academic, writer and teacher, and she is dedicated to creating opportunities for everyone to connect with the Divine and for women to step into positions of spiritual authority. Anne is also the Managing Editor of Goddess Ink.
Priestessing is as much an internal as an external journey. As priestesses, we must know the way “within” before we can lead others. So, this first course about priestessing is geared toward leading personal ritual. We will explore creating sacred space for ritual and building altars, the cycles of the sun and moon, the elements, and the directions. The final part of the course is putting together your own personal ritual.
Also included as part of the course, a copy of Stepping Into Ourselves: An Anthology of Writings on Priestesses from Goddess Ink. (International shipping rates may apply)
