What IS The Shamanic Priestess Process?
Inside of us lives a priestess who knows and understands that earth and all ordinary and extraordinary acts are sacred. She holds the wisdom of the connection between heaven and earth, and longs to express herself in the Temple of our lives.
This 6-9 month process comes through the lineage of Anyaa McAndrew, Nicole Christine, author of Temple of the Living Earth and Under Her Wings: the Making of a Magdalene and the work of Star Wolf, founder of Venus Rising Insititute for the Shamanic Healing Arts and author of Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt.
The Priestess Process fully awakens, enlivens and integrates the inner priestess to her own unique Sacred Work . Now, at the Turning of the Ages, when the Divine Feminine is returning, women are called to participate in the healing of ourselves and our planet .
Priestess Circles empower women to walk in the underworld of their own fears to gain power, playful passion and magnetism.
Awakening priestesses learn to walk the feminine path of self care, beauty and Sacred Sexuality.
Each Woman will align with her inner spiritual authority to discover the ancient and future archetypes that are relevant to her own soul’s calling.
A Transitional evening or day event, with a specific ritual theme is held between each weekend. These transitional meetings are on your own with your priestess circle. The purpose of the transitional gatherings is to:
(1) Facilitate the bonding of each priestess circle, and
(2) Encourage the priestesses to continue their Sacred Work together after their Emergence.
The New Priestess and Women’s Mysteries
Weekend One is a special introductory weekend designed to allow women to experience the priestess archetype within and the Shamanic Priestess Process before committing to the entire 9 month journey.
Explore the ancient-future role of the priestess as wisdom keeper and chalice for Sacred Presence on Earth. Discover our unique priestess expression through music, movement, journaling, dancing and sharing. Learn through myths and stories of the Divine Feminine. Explore the Life Force Mystery teachings of sacred sexuality, birth, death and shamanic initiation. Break the silence of our inner maiden by sharing stories of our first blood. Lay the foundation for “living ceremony.” Discover the feminine spiritual journey as a path of beauty, sensuality and love.
Create a safe, nurturing space for ritual “pampering” and foot washing as a means of honoring the journey each of us has taken to the return of the priestess on earth. Prepare ourselves for “initiation” through journaling, movement and sharing. Co-create a twilight Initiation ceremony followed by a celebratory feast.
Enlightening the Shadow Between Women
Use powerful processes to explore Projection, the Inner Patriarch, and the roles and patterns women inherit that keep them from walking in full consciousness. Learn how to live with a strong supportive inner masculine, and healthy heart, and expressive emotional body fully serving the Divine Feminine within.
Telling the Stories of our Spiritual Journey
Honor each other with special music and nurturing to create a womb of safety and comfort. Call back the lost essence of our priestess selves and weave together our common threads by telling the stories of our own personal spiritual journeys.
Archetypes and the Sacred Marriage
Explore the archetypes of your inner feminine and masculine, and our own relationship path through the vehicle of Shamanic Astrology. Create an experiential medicine wheel to acknowledge all of our personal archetypes. Refine & Integrate the dance of inner feminine and masculine through music, dance and a Sacred Marriage Ceremony.
Conscious Death and Sacred Rebirth
Using Shamanic BreathworkTM, Sacred Art, and Living Ceremony, clear blockages to full life force energy and full chakra alignment. Travel between the worlds to say good-by to our old selves and Old Earth. Call forth a vision of the New Millennium Priestess and her highest destiny, and co-creatively rebirth in to New Celestial Earth.
