The Goddess of Love
with Aphrodite, Lakshmi & The Magdalene

October 8th — November 19th : A 6 Week Mystery School

You are the light of love:
a portal to infinity,
a lightning bolt of possibility.
Enter the realm of magical dreams.
Connect to your Essence:
The family of the Winged Rose
rising again
to the crystalline light.

Beloved one,

Welcome to the temple’s fourth annual Online Mysterium where you will activate 9 sacred practices to embody the modern, Alchemical Priestess and live a divinely intoxicated life through the Goddess of Love. We are honoured to open the temple doors again for this incredible gathering of sisters — your soul family — from across the globe who are drawn to the remembrance of what it means to take a vow of love and walk as a Priestess. Together, we will unmask the gift of our vulnerable imperfection, free our inherent abundance, and unveil our ecstatic embodied presence.

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 6 week online Mystery School containing formal teachings, rituals, skills, and practices (all based on the 13 Moon Mystery School 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 Online Mysterium is one program — provides exemplary, all-inclusive training — from basic skills and practices to full ordination. We are an established temple with more than 30,000 women.

This 6 week Online Mysterium is a primer — a stepping stone — to deep, initiatory trainings offered by the temple’s school.

When + Where:

October 8th — November 19th

All online, including weekly live sessions on Wednesdays (recorded, of course, so you can watch later, if needed)


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.

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.

This year, the special focus is alchemizing our personal and collective limiting stories of perfection, scarcity, and shame so that you can unmask your vulnerability, free your inherent abundance, and unveil your embodied presence.

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.

Are you called
to clarify your purpose
and be a vessel
of rarified love?

Ignite Your Soul’s Fire

Priestess Practices
to Activate + Ignite Your Soul-Desire

As we step through the 9 gateways of transformation during the Mysterium, 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 perfection, scarcity, 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 white 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.

Awaken Your Light

Grounded, Focused, Practical, Embodied,
Mystery School

Elayne Kalila Sophia will guide you through a grounded and focused framework so that you’ll understand the underpinnings of alchemy, archetypal psychology, and deity practice from an integrated lens.

This means plenty of supportive foundational materials along with over 20 hours of practice and ritual where you’ll have direct experiences embodying the Priestess as She lives in you.

Though this is a deep, esoteric Mystery School, it is grounded in a solid foundation so that you can immediately integrate your experience into your daily life.

Each week you’ll receive:

Practical, yet esoteric, teachings, tools, and activations to support you as you remember what it means to walk as a Priestess

Bonus pre-recorded modules of core principles to ground your ritual experience

Deepening practices to hold you on your journey

Live, online transmissions and teachings with Elayne Kalila Sophia to practice the 9 tools of the Alchemical Priestess

Safe, loving container of sisterhood in a private, alchemical Facebook temple

9 core alchemical practices:


Empty Presence

Feeling Navigation, Resonance, and Coherence

Authentic Power and Sovereign Alignment

Integrity and Truth

Devotion and Blessing


Ecstasy, Bliss, and Freedom

This Mysterium offers you a way
to connect to the golden truth
of who you are,
release that which no longer serves
— making way to birth something anew —
so that you can transmute old stories
and come to a place of
harmonic wholeness
as you embody your
divinely human Essence.

…So, if you have been searching for both
a training and an alchemical crucible
in which to practice, awaken, remember,
and be in the alchemical process,
then you’re invited
to let the alchemical fires of this mysterium
transform you

Embody Your Hot Fire of Wholeness

Embody Your Divinely Intoxicated Essence

The Mystery invites us to get naked.

This year, the Goddesses of Love — Aphrodite, Lakshmi, and the
Magdalene — arrive in their alchemical glory to ground Priestess skills in
tangible ways so that we can WALK AS LOVE…which is a wholly/holy naked act.

When we take the vow to walk as love, the Goddesses of Love help activate our lunar, sultry, soul-desires by:

Unmasking the story of needing to be perfect

Freeing the story of feeling caged, stuck — like there isn’t enough
