Enter the Mystery: The Emerald Path of the Alchemical Priestess

The Emerald Circle

The 13 Moon Mystery School Initiation

seedoflife@2x13 moon


 Feel Her in the heartbeat womb of the earth,
rising from the ashes of our ancestors.
With each breath, She remembers.
With each breath, She is being born.
Feel Her iridescent phoenix wings dance in the fire.
See Her shift…
Her body,
feathers of a rainbow,
penetrating you, becoming you,
transforming pain into a colorful display of love.
Can you feel Her, sister?
She wraps Her peacock feathers around you,
infusing you with Her alchemical elixir of Love.
She is calling you:
It is time to be seen.
It is time to reveal your luminescent beauty.
It is time to ignite your inner flame and spread your golden-winged heart.
Are you ready to embrace Her as you?
Are you ready?


We are collectively birthing a new archetype: The Alchemical Priestess.
We are rising, igniting Her, birthing Her within us.
She is asking us to stand in our magnificent beauty, heal ourselves, and come home to our Essence being.
She is spreading Her wings within our hearts, calling us to fully show up in service to the Divine Feminine.
She says:
It is time!
It is time to herald the healing of all beings on this planet, beloved.
Become a vessel of my Love.
Let us soften the heart of the world.


The Divine Feminine is ready to live through you.
Are you ready to embrace Her within you?

What is the Emerald Circle?


This is an invitation-only, deeply intimate, initiation circle for 13 sisters devoted to being in loving service.
Over the course of nine moons, we will meet online — with the Sapphire Circle — and gather for two in-person retreats.
This circle is an opportunity to dive into the 13 Moon™ Mystery School lineage while experiencing the power of being in live transmission and embodied practice with a potent circle.
Each sister in the circle will be interviewed, assuring their dedication to going the distance to create the most naked, honest, vulnerable, tender, and fierce alchemical crucible for individual and collective transmutation.
And the transformation is real, beloved: The Emerald Circle places you directly on the Path of Ordination with the 13 Moon™ Mystery School.

Are you ready for your invitation?

Are you ready to devote yourself to Her?

Do you feel Her passion rising up your spine

— raw, free, powerful —

Calling you to place that golden crown upon your head and claim your Ecstatic Queendom?

She is burning away that which no longer serves you so that the collective can heal.

Oh, the Alchemical Priestess is being birthed through the Shakti Fire of our hearts.

Are you Her vessel?

Are you ready to embody Her?

Do you feel called to this level of commitment?

We will enter sacred space together with the intention and agreement that all within it are on a soul quest, amplifying the healing of each one of us.
It is a time to dissolve all that no longer serves you so that your Essence is revealed, then ignited as a flame for all to see.
Through this transformational process, you will will be held and witnessed in a sacred crucible where we sit eye to eye and heart to heart. Here, the possibility for transmutation on the individual and collective level is profound.

Then the magic happens: We become One Heart, healing itself from the inside out.


Do you feel the pull to embrace Her, sit in a circle with sisters, and to wholeheartedly commit to the Priestess Path?



This is for you, sister, if you…

  • Know you came here to BE the alchemy of Love and healing light on the planet.
  • Know in your deepest Essence — in the center of your heart — that you are being called to step onto the path of the Alchemical Priestess.
  • Choose to open yourself to radical and life changing transformation.
  • Feel called to step onto the Path of Priestess Ordination with the 13 Moon Mystery School lineage.

Are you:

  • Willing to move things out of the way and do what it takes to be of service?
  • Committed and dedicated to going the distance?
  • Devoted to being a vessel of Love and transmutation?
  • Called to deepen and remember specific Priestess skills and tools?
  • Hearing the call to be a catalyst for change in our world?
  • Yearning to immerse in the power of the ancient-future teachings and rites of deep alchemy?
  • Ready to fully enter the Mystery and be of devoted service to Her?


Does this resonate through the very Essence of your being?

If so, you are invited to sit in meditation and feel into whether you are ready to enter a deep level of initiation and step fully into being a passionate, ecstatic Priestess in service to the healing world.

Sisters have told me that the Priestess Presence Online Mysterium was not for the feint of heart; however, this circle requires a more profound commitment and readiness to stand in Divine Feminine Leadership and clear the way to be a vessel of embodied love.

Beloveds, this is the raw, powerfully ripe circle that many of you have been waiting for…


The Alchemical Path


This nine moon initiation is a powerful alchemical path.FOnt UP a size
It is a journey, a birthing, that takes place within a consecrated and sealed container with other sisters who are dedicated, courageous soul travelers on a path of deep healing, wholing, and embodied Essence.
The ancient-future sacred technology of the Alchemical Priestess gives us a map to transmute the nigredo — or shadow — into the gold of our Essence.

Entering an alchemical path is a choice to surrender into the mystery of the Unknown and choose to let go into the greater unfolding of who you came here to be.


This intimate Initiate Circle will invite and challenge you to walk the principles, values, and facets of the Alchemical Priestess Credo:

  • The Priestess as a resonant holder of a new paradigm of feminine leadership.
  • “Leading” from heart by creating resonant fields of energy. This is about creating sacred space for transformation to naturally occur.
  • Sovereign Union: standing in the autonomy and truth of your own heart while being intimately connected to the One.
  • Resonant Authority: the commitment to stand as loving, devoted service … even when challenged.
  • Devoted Service: all actions being sourced from a place of adoration, joy, and upliftment.
  • Vulnerability: the willingness to be imperfectly perfect.
  • Heart Accountability: being in integrity with your own truth as it unfolds in every moment while also having the willingness to be in authentic relationship with others who will mirror your resonance so that you may feel whether you are aligned in love.
  • Inclusivity and equality: everyone is included in the circle of life; no one needs an invitation.
  • Non-expert status: we are mirrors, reflecting back each other’s truth and wisdom.
  • Seeing the brilliance of the other and shining that light on them.
  • The willingness to sit with the paradox and the Unknown.


Beloved, it is safe to begin practicing our skills again.
And the world needs us to do this.
We are here now, sister.
Do you feel the call to be initiated, sister?

What is the 13 Moon Mystery School Priestess Ordination Path?

The Path of Ordination is different for each being. As you step into the feeling harmonic of this path, the frequency is unassailable. Like sitting in the presence of Amma, you know you are in the presence of Divine Love: That is what we are holding for this 13 Moon™ lineage … that you walk as a vessel of Divine Love.
This is demonstrable in so far as everyone else around you can feel it; it is felt because much time has been devoted to clearing away anything that is not in the frequency of Love.
The Ordination Path is not a lightweight commitment with a rubber-stamp completion.
Ordination comes down to demonstrating that you walk as a vessel of Empty Presence and thus can alchemize and transmute through your presence and Love alone.
When you join this circle and enter the Mystery of your heart and remembrance, you will be held accountable to walking as Her.
We have offered a general direction toward the goal of ordination — as a guideline — to follow. You can read more about the specifics here.

In commitment to the deep level of work we will do, there is space for only 13 initiates who are called to enter this path.



If you are feeling called, sister, the temple invites you to sit with these questions:

  • At this potent time, are you willing to be Her eyes, Her hands, Her heart, and Her being in loving, ecstatic action in every moment of your day?  
  • Are you ready to “attune” yourself in service to your deeper Essence Being?
  • Are you called to deepen your alignment, coherency, and integrity in service to your soul work in the world?
  • Are you open to remember a love that flows within you that is so full, so unconditional – a love that has been waiting to flood into your being – in service to your deepest mission and purpose on this planet?
  • Are you prepared to undergo a powerful initiation that will ask you to deal with all aspects of yourself that have been in the way of your being of service? (Are you ready to let it go whatever IT is?)
  • Are you willing to be held accountable to who you are being inside your soul-crafted business?
  • Are you ready to be asked difficult questions, to be held to your own sacred commitments … even when it is hard?
  • Are you ready to step forward as a Priestess within your own realm of service and be a courageous, bold, innovative vessel for the healing of our world?
  • Are you willing to live fully and move mountains inside and outside to show up?

If, so beloved, then you may apply to have a personal deepening session so we can sit with what is calling you to this path at this time.

Ongoing Collaborations in the Priestess Presence Temple:

As a sister who is choosing to come the distance we will be in an intimate circle. Within this context, we will open ourselves to the kinds of collaborations and share co-creations that may want flower from and between us. We have no idea what these will be. I plant the seed here that this circle is intended to serve as deep catalyst to your showing up in your magnificence in devoted service to the world. I am here to serve that in whatever is the highest good!

AND of course, beloved, you receive everything that is in the Sapphire Online Circle:



  • Three live temples each moon for nine months:

  • Sister Confidant: You will be highly encouraged to join with one sister to have a monthly check-in with; you could choose to do this more often if you are called.

We recommend you use Skype. We will provide guidelines for this.

Please state explicitly if you are in need of witnessing or to be mirrored/given advice. In the 13 Moon Mystery School lineage, we hold the belief that we are whole, unbroken, and that we have all the answers within us.
