Priestess Pathway

Daughters of Ishtar embodies a feminine stream of blessing which honours and holds the whole of women’s lived experience as sacred – the luminous moments of love, joy and self-transcendence as well as the dark and potent places of despair, rage and birthing power.

Discover the joy of expressing and sharing your unique personal and creative gifts in service to the Goddess and your community.

Are you called to walk a sacred feminine path?

If you are seeking a lived spirituality that will embrace and celebrate your womanhood.. If there is something in the word ‘priestess’ that intrigues and excites you.. The Daughters of Ishtar Priestess Pathway can help you find your way.

You are invited to a year’s journey of discovery through our cycle of eight ceremonies marking the autumn equinox, winter solstice, spring equinox, summer solstice and the four threshold points between these solar festivals. Each ceremony opens us to a deeper encounter with an aspect of the Divine Feminine as She expresses herself through the cycle of creation and maturation, beginning with the mystery of conception at the autumn equinox.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to further develop your personal spiritual practice and reflect on themes related to the priestess path through journal work, altar creation, meditation and discussion.

On completion of the year’s exploration and in discussion with your priestess-mentor, you may elect to receive an initiation as a priestess within the Daughters of Ishtar stream of blessing.
