Course Objective: A 600 hour (3 year) multi-cultural course in understanding, experiencing and expressing the sacred.
Please note that the title "Priestess" in this context does not simply refer to a woman priest and therefore, does not exclude men. Priests and Priestesses have very different roles: Everyone knows what a Priest is and does, as they are the figureheads of most organized world religions. The Priestess however has been largely forgotten in this modern age, and it is time for her to re-emerge from her certuries in exile. A true Priestess initiates people into the inner realms and workings of Nature and their own soul where they can discover their own mysteries; he or she guides others to find their own way rather than simply telling them what to do. Idealy a priest and a priestess would work together and compliment eachother, but in this new age we need to unite the priest and priestess within ourselves; therefore the following course is comprised of the qualities of both. With that said, no one, not even this course can make one a priest/ess in this sense; it is only the internal "Call of the Soul" that truly makes one a priest/ess. True Priests and Priestesses are custodians of the mysteries, emissarys between the worlds of spirit and matter, and physicians of the soul. This course is designed to give you the keys to unlock the mysteries of your own soul, the rest is up to you.
