Beloved one,

Welcome to Awakening the Call-a self-study course where you will activate 9 sacred practices to embody the modern, Alchemical Priestess.

It’s such an honor to open the temple doors and support you to remember what means to walk as a Priestess.

We bow as you enter the temple…

Here, you are safe.
Here, you are embraced.
Here, you enter into the heart of remembrance.
Here, you are held in your exquisite wholeness.

Enter the Vessel of Transmutation

My love … come, prepare


A self-study course containing formal teachings, rituals, skills, and practices (all based on the 13 Moon Mystery School, an Avalonian lineage) so that you can immerse in the principles of transformation and embody the Priestess.

You will alchemize ancient, esoteric teachings within the structure of a modern mystery school.

The temple’s School of Sacred Arts—of which this course is one program—provides exemplary, all-inclusive training—from basic skills and practices to full ordination.

We are an established temple with nearly 80,000 women

This self-study course is a primer—a stepping stone—to deep, initiatory trainings offered by the temple’s school.


You … if you’re ready to take the vow to walk as love and have the rooted support of a sister soul family as you face challenges when opening your heart to more divine intoxication, intimacy, vulnerability, magic, and ecstatic bliss.

You … if you’re ready to access your remembrance of the core practices and skills of priestessing and begin to step on the path of what it means to walk this path.

You … if you’re called to walk your talk as a Priestess by remembering your sacred gifts and sharing them with the world.

And … for any woman called to deepen the skills and practices of the Priestess within a loving, embracing vessel of sisterhood, held by Elayne Kalila Sophia Doughty, an Ordained Priestess and trained psychotherapist.


So you may remember who you are and embody the transformational power of your true Essence while living an impassioned, fully present life … then offer your precious gifts to the world.

Awakening the Priestess will activate your encoded treasure—which is your birthright—so that you can consciously weave it into the collective and help heal our world.

When we do this, we:

  • Stand in radical self-love, giving permission for others to do the same
  • Dismantle old systems of patriarchy, recreating and rebalancing new systems that honor diversity and the feminine
  • …Can change the world
Are you called
to ground your purpose
and expand your capacity
as a vessel of love?

Ignite Your Soul’s Fire

Priestess Practices
to Activate + Ignite Your Soul-Desire

As we step through the 9 gateways of transformation during this program, you will remember the sacred, grounded practices of the Priestess.

When you remember and re-activate these tools inherent within, you’ll begin to enter the alchemical work.

Your Shakti fire will ignite.

You’ll begin to incinerate old patterns and stories
within you that imprinted core wounds of not enoughness, invisibility
(rooted in the fear of being “seen” and speaking your truth), and shame.

While your heart and body purifies and intensifies
in the fires of transmutation, your passions will
enflame in divine intoxication

Your soul-desire will burn hot…
and the juicy expression of your yearnings will create
new stories, new ways, new vibrance.

With each practice and session, you’ll burn, dissolve, and release
all that no longer serves you so that you can-ultimately–
stand in your brilliant, illuminated, natural, embodied state.

The key is to love your alchemical elements
of fire, water, earth, air and ether–even when they
catalyze, burn, dissolve, and purify your being … for
it’s the ignition of your soul…

…Because alchemical transformation means embracing all of who
we are–the light and the shadow.

Then, the sweet, unique elixir of your quintessence will be revealed.

And when this happens, you’ll remember that you’re here
to embody your fragrant gifts and stand in collective,
awakened, and devoted love.

…And your sister-family will be right by your side in a private Facebook temple.

What Sisters Say

When I joined temple last year I was interested in two things: deepening my understanding of what it means to walk in love and how to work more intimately with alchemy. If you’re interested in creating a new story in your life, to alchemize fear into love .. if you’re ready to choose to be conscious, to walk in love towards more expansive wisdom and growth .. if you’re ready to see that everything you experience is an initiation, then you have found your home with Elayne Kalila. My biggest transformation has been to really see my repeating patterns – not only to see them but to feel into why they keep coming up. Elayne has provided so many tools to work my own magic. I love how she draws out of me my power, my answers, my inner knowing. I feel I have arrived, that I am home in temple. It is a feeling that’s hard to describe .. if any of my words ring true to you then just jump in. I couldn’t really afford the financial commitment but looking back now, this truly is the best money I have ever spent and I would do it again a million times. My beliefs, patterns and habits have been turned on their head, and that is exactly what I needed. Thank you, Elayne!
-Aimee Hanson
Through this Priestess Presence Path – the temple, the sisterhood, and Elayne Kalila’s beautiful, bad-ass spiritual mentorship – I have re-membered who and what I have always been. For the first time in my 55 years I feel real and unwavering connection to Her, to my body, to the sacred alchemical mysteries – wombyn’s mysteries of re-member-ance and fierce love. I have learned that when you walk as love, your hands and womb are love creating; your mouth is love speaking truth; your hips are love, built for intoxication and built as well for holding worlds and babies. Your heart is the chalice which creates it all, radiates it all. This path is not for the faint of heart. But it is for the beautiful and the brave. And when you take your first steps upon this path, sister, you’ll realize that you are that. You are radiant, beautiful and brave and always have been.
-Juanita Cheng
Elayne has a beautiful and generous way of making a seductive invitation to this Path of the Goddess/Priestess work, bringing the heart of the Divine Feminine back into balance and love. Within a handful of weeks I heard the call to the Mysterium and without a second guess, moved into the next piece of intimacy with the One on this path. The gifts that came from doing the Mysterium brought the 13 Moon Priestess Path more deeply into my consciousness and soul. Meeting all the women that shared their visions, their personal path work, their hearts and words, touch me so deeply I really couldn’t get enough. And working with Elayne Kalila is truly a great gift. She’s an awesome soul. I love her and cherish the depth of her commitment to the One, to Love, to you as Sister on this path.
-Jeanne Adwani

About Kalila

I am Elayne Kalila, Gatekeeper and Focalizer of the Priestess Presence Temple, a dedicated temple of the 13 Moon Mystery School. I believe walking the Priestess Path is about being willing to dedicate ourselves to deepening our practice so that we can be present and serve the world. I am passionate about opening the ancient mysteries of the Divine Feminine into our modern lives so we can all step more fully into serving from a place of love, presence, and purpose.

Because of the teachings of the Divine Feminine through the 13 Moon Mystery School, I have been able to priestess in some of the most dangerous and violent areas of the world, like the Congo. In those places, I have supported women to activate and remember their truth and power. I offer a real path of presence, empowerment, and transformation through awakening the Priestess within you. That is why I am delighted and honored to invite you to join me.If you have secretly (or not so secretly!) wondered about the Path of the Priestess, how to deepen in Her sacred realms, and bring the Goddess into the modern-day context of your life, this special program is for you.
