Priestess Training 2020
The Mt Shasta Goddess Temple is now accepting inquiries from women interested in our Woman Shaman Priestess training program for 2020. You are invited to this lastingly transformative work if your spirit is calling for the kind of wisdom that only the Earth and women’s mysteries can offer. This is a path for the woman who has looked at the bottom of her own heart, who is ready to be reunited with parts of her soul that she feels have gone missing, to connect with her courage, and to empower her intuitive, mystic vision.
Is it time now for this work in your life?
Woman Shaman Priestess training features both written lessons and individual experiences, as well as group conferences and gatherings:
a global overview of women’s shamanic tools and techniques
historical information about women’s shamanic practices and shamanistic cultures
specific focus on past and living lineages of female practitioners and female leadership
guided and independent opportunities to practice shamanic techniques
online and in-person ceremonies
communion with animal, stone, and tree energies
connection with goddesses from many different world cultures
herbal preparations and purification techniques
a private Facebook for inspirational shares
monthly video conferences with the group
text support from Priestess Yeshe
optional sessions and divinations with Priestess Yeshe
3 optional retreats in Mt. Shasta, CA
During the course of this Priestess training, you will come into awareness of your lineage, connect with your ancestors, create habits of reverence for your own sacred body and the Earth, learn to listen to your animal knowing, and cultivate life force to benefit yourself and other beings in the visible and unseen realms.

“I am in my second year of Priestess training with the Mt. Shasta Goddess Temple and I am, and have consistently been, deeply moved by the level of personal growth, magical development, and worldly knowledge that I have gained with the carefully crafted curriculum and Yeshe’s firm and loving guidance. The work runs very deep. It will bring you into fathomless realms of your Spirit, the Soul of the Worlds, and to use a term from Yeshe herself, a profound connection with the Oneness Light. Be prepared to be inspired, turned inside out, and welcome in your dreams.” - Jamie
Pilgrimage is a way of life
In our Temple, we believe that pilgrimage is a way of life. Each moment in time and every place we visit can be a sacred state of grace when we observe things through the eyes of Goddess. As part of living our beliefs, our Temple members and guests journey to spiritual sites, bathe in healing waters, attend conferences and conventions together, perform ceremonies in nature, make offerings to the Earth, and host retreats to nourish the soul.
The Mt Shasta Goddess Temple has some wonderful trips and tours scheduled for 2020-2022. Each travel group is intentionally small, and your trip fee includes lodging, guide, transportation, activities, breakfast, and translator services.
