Amanda is a priestess of Rhiannon, priestess of the Goddess and priestess of Avalon, ceremonialist and Melissa Mother/Potnia of the Glastonbury Goddess conference. She has travelled the priestess spiral path for 10 years and studied in depth with Katinka Soetens the creatrix of the priestess of Rhiannon training and the Magdalene Mystery School. She has held the position of priestess initiate for 2 years as shadow teacher under the tutelage of Katinka and completed the teacher training. She was fortunate to be a member of the first year long Tribe of Rhiannon training, a mixed group trail blazing this work and path finding. For Amanda it was as an exciting, deeply informing initiation; she developed a felt sense for exploration and experiential learning, a greater trust and understanding of the power, beauty and grace of our sexual energy.
Amanda’s spiritual path extends over 20 years as a healer and teacher of many various healing modalities and open heart work. Her recent interest is the powerful yet subtle Rosen Method Therapy. She has a soul calling to know this ‘piece of life’ and heal. She is dedicated and committed to her own process of discovery of ‘thine’ self and as Ram Das says ‘we are all walking each other home and it is my passion to share this healing journey with others’.
At Imbolc this year Amanda raised with her co-founder the Manchester Goddess Temple following a year of ceremony and planting the intentional seeds. They opened the doors of Her temple, entered Her mystery and commenced a yearlong exploration of Mamucium. This is a returning and reclaiming journey around the wheel of the year created and facilitated from Amanda’s experience and development as a priestess.
Amanda has a deep heart and soul calling to work with women reclaiming their scared sexual selves, it is her passion and love to facilitate the journey of returning to the world the sacred sexual priestess and it is her honour to co-teach this transformational training.
