Spring Blessings, Beloved Community,
It is my deep honor to announce that the application portal for our inaugural Sisterhood of the Moon Tradition of Witchcraft Priestess Training Voyage is now open! Please read on for more details about this long-anticipated program.
About our Sisterhood of the Moon Tradition Priestess Voyage
This Priestess Voyage is ideal for:
- Women who desire to dive deeper into our Sisterhood of the Moon Tradition of Witchcraft.
- Women who want to create and lead their own Sisterhood of the Moon circles and/or communities.
- Women who desire to become public Priestesses in service to Goddess.
- Women who love to learn simply for the sake of learning and want more, more, more!
The pre-requisite for boarding our Crystal Ship is successful advance completion of The Women’s Mystery School of Magick & Empowerment, the foundational program of our Sisterhood of the Moon Tradition of Witchcraft.
Where does this take place?
This program is offered entirely online. We meet in our Zoom Temple for lecture and ceremony (all circles are recorded for those who aren’t able to be present) and we deepen our practice with one another each week in our private Circle of Connection.
How often do you meet?
Live circles are held once monthly on a weekday for 1-2 hours, Monday through Thursday. The time of day is rotated to best include all Sisters in varying time zones. (Note: Temple time is Pacific time.)
Our Temple rests from public service twice per year: Creatrix’s Month (July) and Winter Respite (from the day after Winter Solstice until Imbolc). While assignments will still be given and work will still be due, there will be no live circles during July and January.
Although we ask that all Priestesses-in-Training do their best to be at every live gathering, we know that “life happens”. Please plan to never miss multiple consecutive circles without advance communication.
Who is teaching this program?
Lady Jesamyn Angelica, Founder and Creatrix of Sisterhood of the Moon Tradition of Witchcraft, with wisdom and contributions from Priestess Sabrina Moon and other Elders, Priestesses, and Teachers.
How long is the Priestess Voyage?
In additional to our Orientation gathering, the Priestess Voyage continues for three Spirals, each Spiral consisting of 13 months (Gates). There is a one-month integration break between Spiral 1 and Spiral 2, between Spiral 2 and Spiral 3, and between the conclusion of Spiral 3 and the Priestess Ordination Rite.
Can I sign up for just one Spiral?
While you can decide that this Path is not for you and exit the circle at any time, the Priestess Voyage is offered as only as a complete three-Spiral program. Boarding the Crystal Ship affirms your intention to be with us for the entire journey. It is imperative that you have time in your life for this sustained Voyage, or it is best to wait and apply when (if!) the next ship sails.
What kind of work can I expect to do each month?
Plan for juicy reading, writing, research, and ritual—and lots of it!
How often is moonplay due?
Because we are all travelling together, moonplay is due for everyone on the last day of every month.
How much time will this take per month?
This is subjective and is dependent on you. That said, this program is the equivalent of studying for a master’s degree at university. You are highly encouraged to create the space, time, and resources so that you can joyfully focus on this journey without stress or struggle, just as you would any other program of study embarked upon in adulthood.
It is understood that you will most likely be working full-time in your “mundane” life alongside this journey. Since this is a rigorous and time-consuming program—and so that you can prioritize and give your full attention to our sacred work together—you have ideally cleared your schedule of other intense scholastic commitments and training program obligations for the duration of our Voyage together.
Time is one of the most important elements of learning to gracefully carry the mantle of a Priestess, a vocation which centers service and humility.
It is important to understand that “Priestess” is not just another title to add to one’s list of accomplishments and credentials—it is a way of living in this world, each and every day of our lives.
How are training materials disseminated?
In addition to live monthly gatherings and access to the recordings of these sessions, a monthly pdf with information, rituals, projects, and assignments is shared within our Circle of Connection. Some Gates will include supplemental support materials in the form of audio, video, and/or pdf files.
What is the Circle of Connection?
This is our private online circle where we witness, support, and encourage one another. Here is a sacred space in which we discuss the monthly materials, work together on projects, and share what is happening in our lives.
(The location of the Circle of Connection is yet to be determined; it will *not* be on Facebook.)
What happens at the end of the three Spirals?
Our Priestess Voyage culminates in your Ordination as a Sisterhood of the Moon Priestess and, if you so desire, Dianic Clergy. It is the objective of this Priestess Training Program that by the time you achieve Ordination, you will have cultivated the skills necessary to begin your own Sisterhood of the Moon circle and/or community, if this is your goal.
What is the Tribute for this program, and how is it paid?
Tribute is offered on a sliding scale paid monthly via an automatic Paypal subscription, $250-$75 per month. Those experiencing temporary financial hardship are welcome to contribute $50 per month. If you are an Elder or BIPOC Sister and are in need of assistance in order to join us, please inquire directly.
Your Next Steps
1) If this Voyage is calling to you, Dear One, and you have successfully completed all of The Women’s Mystery School of Magick & Empowerment coursework, have walked through both Sisterhood of the Moon Witch Initiation rituals, and have received your certification marking this amazing accomplishment, please reply to this message and request an application to join us.
2) Please read Atomic Habits by James Clear and The Way of the Priestess: A Reclamation of Feminine Power and Divine Purpose by Sarah Coxon. Although I do not agree with all of the assertions in these books, there are many ideas that are highly aligned with our Tradition’s philosophies and supportive of navigating both the blessings and the challenges of modern priestessing.
This application portal closes on the Full Moon in Libra, Saturday, April 16th, and we begin on Lunar Beltane—May 15th!
If you have questions about the application process, please let me know.
I am both honored and excited to open this new gateway for our Tradition, my Sisters! Hail the unfolding of the Great Mystery!
With my Love,
