Priestess Training 2019

A new cycle of our Woman Shaman Priestess Training program begins in January 2019. Whether you are local or at a distance, women are welcome to participate in this unique process of self-development. This program is about:

  • strengthening your relationships with your spirit allies and guides

  • connecting with and honoring women’s historical and living shamanic and spiritual lineages worldwide

  • filling your toolbox with practices and physical items of power that will benefit you and others

  • learning to remain present and calm during periods of stress and difficulty

  • participating in the mindful co-creation of the world around you

  • developing your skills of intuition and manifestation

  • opening doors to deeper spiritual communion with your sacred body

You are invited to 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 soul, and who is ready to be reunited with her deep, innate power, her courageous heart, and her intuitive, mystic vision. Is it time for this work in your life?

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 2018-2020. Each travel group is intentionally small, and your trip fee includes lodging, guide, transportation, activities, breakfast, and translator services. Look where we’re going and join in if you feel moved!
