Become a Priestess of Rhiannon of Avalon, Priestess of Love, Priestess of Sacred Sexuality

Year One– of a two year training with Katinka Soetens which leads to self-dedication into the Sisterhood of Rhiannon of Avalon.

During the first year of this experiential and transformative non-residential training, we will meet in 9 circle weekends to experience different aspects of the Goddess Rhiannon of Avalon and of our woman self.

Rhiannon’s path embraces the ways of women, which honours life, Goddess, the land and the sacred core essence in women and men. This is a feminine path of self-care and love, beauty and sacred sexuality – the reclaiming and awakening of the Sacred Sexual Priestess.

Women are called to heal themselves, their relationships and our planet. It is time to really look at and own the ways in which we participate in and perpetuate patriarchal structures and to initiate into healthy aspects of our women’s self development. Rhiannon holds the mirror for us to see, own, heal and release parts of our self that stand in the way of the flow of love.

Experiencing nine different aspects of the Goddess Rhiannon and of our woman self as initiation gateways into healthy, mature femininity, we will learn to listen for and follow Rhiannon’s guidance as She expresses in and through us.

We work with Rhiannon, the ever-present inner Goddess of Love, to learn new skills and remember the blood mysteries: To sit in a supportive women’s circle, to heal and to call back the sacred sexual priestess and discover, deepen and re-member the arts and skills of this soul calling.

This training includes teachings around: blood mysteries, birth and other rites of passage, sexual healing, conscious touch, cleansing and honouring rituals, sacred dance, inner marriage of Goddess and God, body-disarmament, tantric ceremony, awakening the senses, embodiment, expressing boundaries, giving consent and owing desires, releasing fear and loving oneself, serving the Goddess, and guiding others into Her presence.

This Year the Students of the Year One will Open the day on Saturday 1st August at the

2020 Glastonbury Goddess Conference Earth Mother!
