Priestess Initiation Journey Phase I:

The 5th Dimensional Priestess and Womens Mysteries

Southern France (completed August 9-15, 2017)

read below what women had to say!


Luxor, Egypt (Nile Boat)

November 11-18, 2017

If you are ready to shift your life and integrate all that you know with that which you truly are, then come embody the tools of the sacred priestess and learn how to apply them in your everyday life!


We have chosen this golden goddess as our symbol for the return of the radiant solar feminine as courage, inspiration and visionary leadership.


We are dedicated to the personal awakening of the priestess, within the feminine polarity, as the vehicle and the foundation for the return of the Great Mother and the Divine Feminine on Planet Earth. We envision this great return as fundamental to the restoration of the Divine Plan and the creation of a New Earth founded on principles of the collaboration of Feminine and Masculine as equals, without hierarchy. Through Living Ceremony, Initiatory Processes and teachings that stretch us into ancient and new feminine territory, deep sharing and bonding, we collectively activate, empower, and bless each being to journey toward her soul’s purpose and her unique sacred work at this time of the Great Transformation and the Turning of the Ages.

But Here is what the women who attended Phase I in Southern France have to say:

I felt very much held by Anyaa each single moment. I could express myself with full permission. I was enjoyably inspired by Jasmeen’s graceful behavior. The Organization was amazing, even though I believe Anyaa and Jasmeen adapted each day to our circle’s flowing vibrant energy!”

I did not know how healing a woman’s bathing ritual would be! I felt held in a sweet bath by supportive sisters with an abundance of empathy and love!”

“The Triple Maiden

This was My maiden journey

It was the Program’s maiden Journey

It was the Journey into the Maiden

 I came into it wanting to be a mother.

What better way to do it than to close down the maiden years?

And a huge river of blood and tears opened.

My maiden cried and cried…so much grief opened.

I wasn’t aware of just how much my early years had hurt.

The sheer amount of pain, and nobody to hold it or often even acknowledge it.

But who better to hold it than my priestess, adult, mother self?

 In this journey I had learned a great deal many things.

But what I treasure the most is the connection between women.

And the appreciation of women who are unapologetically themselves.

 I emerge with a lot more confidence in my spiritual authority.

I feel I have remembered a lot.

And now I really want to help bring people back to themselves,

to each other, and in connection with the earth through the use of ceremony.”

And another testimonial:

Merci pour ce fabuleux stage où j’ai découvert ce qu’est un cercle de femmes. J’ai partagé émotions, danses, méditations, astrologie et surtout des rituels. J’ai aussi appris des choses sur mon masculin et mon féminin, sur l’équilibre entre les deux. Je me suis centrée sur moi même tout en partageant des moments très intenses avec d’autres merveilleuses femmes quidées par deux superbes professeurs. Nous étions hébergés dans un merveilleux chateau au coeur de l’arrière pays du sud de la France  . Je recommande vivement ce stage aux femmes qui veulent approndir leur éveil spirituel.”

English Translation:

“Thank you for this fabulous workshop where I discovered what is a circle of women. I shared emotions, dances, meditations, astrology and especially rituals. I also learned things about my masculine and feminine, about the balance between both. I have focused on myself while sharing very intense moments with other wonderful women quidées by two superb professors. We were staying in a wonderful castle in the heart of the hinterland of southern France. I highly recommend this course to women who want to improve their spiritual awakening.”
