We evolve and deepen as priestesses in order to embrace power and leadership with grace and integrity.

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.
