Tejas Web is pleased to offer a year of study and practice in Reclaiming Priestessing for all genders, colors, and ages. 
We evolve and deepen as priestesses in order to embrace power and leadership with grace and integrity.
Intermediate to Advanced work—some magical experience or background required.  Reclaiming ritual experience helpful.   Letter of intent required as an application to the training (see below).
Priestess Training delves into the many faceted role of Priestess in the non-hierarchical magical practices of the Reclaiming Tradition.  Classes happen on Saturdays, day and evening, every other month through 2014.  We focus on personal growth, practical tools, ritual creation, working in community, and stepping into power as a priestess in the world. 

A broad arc of magic encompasses decades of collective experience and includes exploration of and practice in magical foundations, deity, fae, ancestors, devotionals, shadow, energy, personal practice, collaborative skills, consensus process, mentorship, trust, accountability, initiation, presence, voice, body, glamour, feedback, drumming, activism, cone of power, divination, spellcrafting, storytelling, sacred drama, trance leading, craft tradition, tending, aspecting, and ritual.

Please write a letter of intent (approximately 250-300 words) addressing:
• your magical background
• why you are called to priestessing
• what you hope to get out of the training
• if you need financial assistance in order to attend

Please send letter of intent to:­­­­­­­­­­­­ Suzanne,
