The High Priestess is an timeless feminine archetype of
power and intuition. She is the
intermediary between the physical and spiritual realms, and gracefully
navigates and facilitates communication between these two worlds. She is the pathway to the Divine and the
conduit for receiving and disseminating Divine wisdom.
Those who embody the priestess archetype are often:
“The body is the unconscious mind! Repressed traumas caused by overwhelming emotion can be stored in a body part, thereafter affecting our ability to feel that part or even move it.”
- --from "Molecules of Emotion" by Dr. Candace B. Pert, scientist and researcher
I talk a lot about how old emotional experiences are stored in our bodies in my women's sexuality courses. Specifically I teach you how these old emotional experiences can get in the way of our ability to experience sexual pleasure and often are at the root of a woman's difficulty or inability to experience orgasm.
In addition to helping or hindering our ability to experience sexual pleasure, our emotions have an effect on us in many other ways either leading to the healthy functioning of our cells or contributing to illness and dis-ease in the body and mind over time.
In the words of the late Dr. Candace B. Pert:
"Mind doesn't dominate body, it becomes the body-body and mind are one."
In other words our thoughts and feelings--that which our mind is made up of-literally become the physical body over time. Our mind energy holds patterns and broadcasts information based on the emotional patterns we are playing out in our lives. This affects how we feel about ourselves, how others see us and relate to us and what we manifest and create in our lives.
The good news is that there is a way to re-program the body-mind, to change what is no longer serving us in our subconscious by working with the very thing it is made up of--energy.
Limiting beliefs can be changed in an instant when we work with the energy they are made up of . Old traumas can be cleared inn an instant when we understand how to unlock and unravel the stuck emotional energy being held in the body.
If I told you I was going to teach you to do intuitive
readings, communicate with guardian angles and spirit guides, clear a room, a
home or a person of unwanted negative energies, while also learning how to
intuitively work with the human body and
understand how to heal it, the first thing you would probably ask me is
"Gee that 's a lot of stuff. How
many workshops and classes do I have to take to learn how to do all that? That must take a long time and sounds like a
lot of work."
If I told you that I could teach you how to do all that in
one weekend, I bet to guess you won't believe me. You will probably think "You can't learn
how to do all that just a couple of days!."
Well, actually no, not necessarily.
If I told you that I healed my chronic low back pain of 14 years in less than two minutes would you believe me? And what if I told you that I did the same for one of my clients who had suffered severe low back pain for the past 40 years of her life due to a tailbone injury at the age of 12 (her healing took about an hour, and she has been pain free ever since....)
We tend to think that because some pattern has been hanging around for a long time that it is going to take a long time to change it. And that simply is just not freakin' true.
You can change a pattern in an instant. You can heal the body in an instant. You can transform your life in an instant.
And yes, you can train to be a Priestess and Intuitive Coach in just one weekend.
Level 1 training is designed for the woman with little to no experience in this domain. The only pre-requisite is an open mind and a genuine desire to grow!
Basic Priestess Training Level 1 is ideal for any woman in any profession who wants to learn how to overcome fear and be in greater control of her life direction.
This training will show you how to harness the power and support of the spiritual realms to heal, coach, counsel, and change your life and the lives of others.
Advanced Priestess Training Level 2 will build on the strong foundation you built in Level 1 while introducing you to more advanced concepts and practices. Level 2 is time to take the "training wheels off" and will prepare you to qualify of our High Priestess Initiation and Teacher Training Program.
Being a Priestess has nothing to do with religion.
A priestess is an archetype, a role, a way of being in the world. When a woman
learns to consciously embody the priestess archetype she is learning to master
the realms of the spiritual and physical. Regardless of your religion.
spiritual beliefs or profession you are probably already using some of these
skills without realizing it.
Most of us live our lives according the perceived rules and
limitations of the physical world. We
have unconsciously accepted beliefs and perceptions about "reality"
that keep us locked into old patterns and ways of being and believing that keep
us stuck and limited.
This eventually leads to feelings of frustration,
disconnection, confusion, and a sense of powerlessness to influence the
direction of our lives.
But the Priestess understands that the physical realm is
nothing more than a reflection of her own mind. To change the physical world,
she learns to change her mind. She knows
how to consistently alter her perception so that she can see things the way
they really are.
She trains herself to see things the way the Divine sees them.
And from her seat of
elevated knowing, she uses her wisdom to change the course of her life and to
help others do the same.
The Basic Priestess Training Level 1 will provide you with a
fundamental and practical structure for working with energy, communicating with
guides and angelic realms, changing limiting beliefs in yourself and others, healing
trauma, and working with physical issues and imbalances in the body.
You do NOT need to be a healer, coach or counselor to take
this training. We start from ground
zero and ANYONE can learn this stuff.
Most people take Basic Priestess Training for the following reasons:
1. For personal development: You want to improve and transform your own life. Clear sabotaging limiting beliefs, resolve old emotional issues that are keeping you stuck, and learn to manifest and co-create the life of your dreams using powerful spiritual tools and techniques.
2. For professional development: Maybe you are already a coach or healer or other helping professional and you want to be able to help your clients in a deeper way by addressing the energetic root cause of their issues. You want to get faster results that last and need some tools to be able to do that. Or maybe you have always dreamed of becoming a healer or coach and have been looking for a program to train you and provide you with the right tools. This training will provide that for you.
It is easy to sit around and talk about concepts. The concept of energy, the concept of God,
healing, or the "Universe". And
even the "concept" of what it means to be a Priestess.
The problem with concepts is that they are limited and limiting. They keep us in the realm of the intellectual mind which constantly wants to analyze, rationalize, and doubt anything that goes against our pre-conceived notions about "reality".
The mind loves argument and debate and often wants to tell us "this or that cannot be because XYZ...(fill in the bank with whatever "facts" or "proof" the mind produces for you). In other words the rational mind is limited. Concepts are limited.
But the subconscious mind is unlimited. This subconscious is the domain of experiential learning, mystical experiences, and miracles. Unlike the rational mind, the subconscious mind allows for the possibility of everything. It is the source of creation.
Priestesses are trained to consciously access the subconscious mind and work with it's wisdom. Uncovering blocks to success, sources of illness and imbalance, and seeing "reality" as it really is. The Priestess knows how to co-create, heal, and transform using her connection to the creative energy of the subconscious.
Although anyone can learn how to do this work, this training is NOT for everyone. I am looking for a specific type of woman to join me for this very sacred experience.
Training Level 1 and 2 is for women who:
This training is probably NOT for you if:
Since the age of six I knew I wanted to be a healer. I had an innate calling to help others and a firm belief in the power of the Divine to heal. After graduating from university with a degree in Religious Studies, I decided to pursue training as a massage therapist. I needed a way to make a living, wanted to work in the holistic healing world, and it seemed like a good place to start. But I was never really satisfied doing massage. I longed to be able o help people in a bigger way, a deeper way.
In 2008 I came across a healing modality called Thetahealing. I immediately trained, got certified and began practicing and teaching the work.
I founded my business Therapy for Your Soul where I began
working as a medical intuitive, healer, and intuitive coach, helping my clients
with everything from chronic illness and pain to relationship and life issues.
During this time I also studied and certified in numerous
other forms of healing during this time including Integrated Energy Therapy and
Reference Point Therapy.
Shortly thereafter, in 2010, I was guided intuitively to expand my approach to doing healing, and after healing my chronic back pain of 14 years in a matter of less than two minutes I developed a technique I came to call Trauma Point Clearing.
In 2011 I was led to my work with the Divine Feminine energies and eventually into the field of women's sexuality and feminine spirituality. I founded The Feminine Wisdom Academy where I now teach courses and offer counseling and coaching on women's sexuality and feminine spirituality and leadership.
The Priestess Training Level 1 draws wisdom from a number of healing traditions as well as some additional tools I have discovered along the way. Unlike other training programs that require strict adherence to protocols and formulas, this training is designed to give you a fundamental structure or baseline from which to work with the goal of allowing you to follow your own guidance and discover your own unique ways of working over time.

It was important for me to choose a location for this retreat that would be conducive to our work as we develop and open our capacities for intuition and healing. The retreat center is located on lake Travis just outside of Austin, TX and is in a setting that has lovely energy and beautiful surroundings.
We will be using the natural surroundings as well as the natural flows
of feminine water energy (water is associated with the subconscious) to
help us become grounded centered and ultimately more expanded in our
awareness as you learn the fundamental tools of the "Priestess" trade.
Wimberly, TX is a site of sacred energy and good vibes!
It was important for me to choose a location for this retreat that would be conducive to our work as we develop and open our capacities for intuition and healing. I chose Wimberley, TX (a town about 45 minutes Southwest of Austin, TX) for the powerful flow of spiritual energy that runs through the area.
The area is home to an energy vortex and numerous ley lines which are responsible for the peaceful and harmonious feeling that is almost palpable when you enter the area.(check out this blog on this topic--one more reason to love central Texas!) The Blanco River and some pretty trippy yet beautiful geologically formed swimming holes such as Blue hole and Jacobs Well (see photo above) lure tourists form both near and far.
With all the rivers and aquifers that flow through and around Wimberley, there is also a lot of feminine energy that facilitates deep inner work and creativity. Wimberley is known for its many artists and spiritually minded people who live there.
We will be using the natural surroundings as well as the natural flows of feminine water energy (water is associated with the subconscious) to help us become grounded centered and ultimately more expanded in our awareness as you learn the fundamental tools of the "Priestess" trade.
