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,

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

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

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

Unveiling the story of shame and feeling unsafe in our bodies

You’ll receive 3 bonus (3hrs each)
focused, LIVE immersions
into the Goddesses of Love:

In addition to the core curriculum, you’ll experience three separate three hour immersions with Aphrodite, Lakshmi, and the Magdalene to transmute the old stories of perfection, limitation, and shame.


Transmuting Perfection:
Unmasking Vulnerability, Intimacy, and the Beauty of Imperfection

Come, embody the new story of:
I am here to unmask who I am.
My imperfection and vulnerability radiate my unique, true beauty.
My imperfection is beautiful.
My vulnerability is beautiful.

Let go of the story that you have to be perfect to be loved.

Melt the mask of perfection: needing to have the perfect job, the perfect body, the perfect home.

Identify how wounds like competition/comparison and seeking outside validation/love prevent emotionally authentic relationships.

Activate and remember practices that support you to honor and love yourself exactly as you are (without feeling the need to people please).

Experience powerful direct embodiment of Aphrodite and Her gift of unconditional love through guided, grounded practices.

Unmask the beautiful gift of your imperfection.

Embrace vulnerable authenticity as a gateway to true intimacy and beauty with self first, then others.


Transmuting Limitation: Freeing Abundance, Opulence, and Magic Come, embody the new story of: Love is freedom. Abundance is a natural state of being. Money is sacred. Reality is magical … and so am I.

Let go of the story that you are limited and don’t have the power to change your circumstances.

Free the caged wound of scarcity: that there isn’t enough and that you’re not enough.

See how believing in the old paradigm of limitation restricts right alignment, manifestation, imagination, and limitless possibility.

Identify how wounds like not having enough resources (time, money, etc.) block the inherent abundant flow and magic in your life.

Activate and remember practices that support you to recognize the sacred quality of money, receive the blessings of harmony, and stop trying to “get” — knowing all that you need is already here.

Experience powerful direct embodiment of Lakshmi and Her gift of enrichment through guided, grounded practices.

Trust the flow of energy in life from a place of reverence, gratitude, blessings, and connected abundance.

Embrace trust, support, devotion, and blessings as gateways to inherent abundance, sustainability, opulence, and flowing magic.

The Magdalene

Transmuting Shame:
Unveiling Pleasure, Bliss, and Ecstatic Presence

Come, embody the new story of:
I am safe.
I am a temple.
I am embodied as a divine human.

Let go of the story that you’re unworthy of your desires and will be “cast out” or shunned if you pursue them.

Unveil the wound of shame that enters your body … fear of being “too much” or “not enough.”

See how believing in the old paradigm of unworthiness and shame prevent you from being fully present and embodied in this lifetime.

Identify how wounds like being “too much/not enough” keep you hidden and block your inherent pleasure, ecstasy, and bliss.

Activate and remember practices that support you to recognize that your body is a temple … a sacred, erotic gateway to divine union and holy intoxication.

Experience powerful direct embodiment of the Magdalene and Her gift of embodiment through guided, grounded practices.

Unveil your heart so that you can embody the pleasure, bliss, ecstasy of your full presence.

Know that you’re erotically whole and humanely, divinely embodied … and it is safe for you to be here.


the Goddesses of Love embrace us as we remember to celebrate
our inherent wholeness by virtue of our transparent,
vulnerable, free, ecstatic hearts.

This is who we came here to be.
This is the path of the Priestess.

In human form, we are met with many challenges and initiations
that often mask, cage, and veil our Essence and divinity.

With the merging of the Priestess and the Goddesses of Love,
we’re invited to embody our lives from the perspective that we’re
already whole, complete, and radiant.

We only have to remember.

The practices, skills, and loving sisterhood offered in this 6 week Mysterium
provide you with the perfect vessel to remember who you are
so that you can walk as Love on the planet.

Are you called to be
fully present, sister?
To be alive,
vibrant, blissful?

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 Maleda Gebremedhi:

Maleda is a gifted Evolutionary Healer, Feminine Mystic and Midwife of the Soul.  She has practiced and taught in the field of feminine awakening for over 17 years, including intensive training in women’s yoga and Indian Temple Dance and as a lead teacher in a monastic ashram community.  

In 2013 during an extended deep retreat, she experienced a life-changing spiritual awakening to Great Mother Consciousness through the field of her womb and was shown the processes that have become the evolutionary work of Womb Matrix Healing today.

A healer of healers and pioneer of consciousness, Maleda’s powerful transmissions and healing pathways delve right through to the core of who you are, guiding you into a profound remembrance and reclamation of your soul’s eternal Truth and your natural divine design as a feminine being.   What is awakened is a feminine template for true and deep spiritual realization, moving through the spiral of soul healing into a direct experience of omnipresent Divine Mother Consciousness through the natural gateway of our wombs.  

She offers global healing transmissions & activations, deep healing journeys, and teacher & practitioner trainings.

“All of the fruit from my years of intense spiritual practice, all of the meditation, yoga, lightwork, initiations from powerful masters, intentions, renunciations do not hold a candle to what happened when the consciousness of my womb awakened.  All seeking ceased. I fully landed in myself. My perspective shifted from the small “me” to being the all encompassing Divine Feminine Presence of life itself. I found a gateway to the cosmos thru my own womb, a gateway to the empty space in which I rest. What astounds me most is how vital, how essential womb consciousness is to the awakening woman, and how little this is taught or honored in the spiritual traditions that are proliferating today. This is our deepest feminine power, our effortless landing in Truth, and the greatest offering I have in life.”

-Maleda, 2013

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.
