- Urban Priestess: Red Temple SOUL-rority
“When sleeping women wake, mountains move” ~ Chinese Proverb
An Urban Priestess is a woman who values inner connection as much as outer. She is most interested in living aligned with what really matters, what she knows in her heart to be possible and true.
DISCOVER how to create a personal feminine spiritual embodiment practice and to dance among the paradox of light/dark, yin/yang, sun/moon, and welcome all of yourself – both the conscious and disparate parts – into the Temple of your being.
An Urban Priestess is a woman interested in embracing wholeness not fragmentation. It is in this place she rebirths herself Home.
EXPLORE archetypal wisdom and symbolism pulled from yoga philosophy, Tantra, Buddhism, Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, and Celtic, Druidic, Native American, and Women’s Spirituality (and more). Learn how to knit yourself back into the rhythmic weave of nature and realign yourself with the rhythms of lunar, solar, and seasonal cycles through storytelling, chanting, ritual/ceremony, movement/asana, breathing/pranayama, drumming, meditation, and journaling.
An Urban Priestess values the cycles of nature. She answers to the mystery and magic of life. She pulses with the Earth, the Moon, and the Seasons. She recognizes that the sacred is woven into the everyday.
EMBODY your Goddess/Shakti (divine feminine) essence by unleashing your voice, trusting your body, igniting your deepest desires, plugging into your Truest self, forged in connection with your innate feminine brilliance, beauty, and natural instinct.
An Urban Priestess is a woman who longs to embody her highest and deepest Selves. She experiences the miraculous through common acts of eating, breathing, making love, and being in her Aliveness.
The Red Temple SOUL-rority is a process of melting into and unraveling the wisdom and beauty inherent in each woman, and the celebration of that continual rebirthing. There is no more powerful place to do that than in a circle of conscious women. Gathering as women, for women. To celebrate, support, and heal one another through our very Presence.
An Urban Priestess dives in so she can shine out. She longs to practice being Awake.
Join us in coming alive and learning to speak from our inner Goddess, while being romanced by our own Remembrance. Will you heed the call of the Urban Priestess within you? Your heroine journey awaits…
