Back to the Body


A Different Kind of Priestess Training

Your Inner Priestess Awaits

It came to me yesterday, as my team worked with the women who attend Back to the Body, that in many ways we are conducting a different kind of Priestess training.

What is a priestess?

A priestess is a woman who officiates in sacred rites and in Back to the Body: Sensuous Retreats for Women, myself and my team of professional bodyworkers are teaching women to officiate in the sacred rite of their own sexual alchemy.

A priestess is a woman who is choosing to walk the path of a deep inner calling. That is true of the women who are called to attend one or more of our retreats around the world. With courage and grace, that woman navigates the continuous ascents and descents of her life's spiral.  She goes deeper and deeper into her own magical and sacred cauldron during a session.

Our Back to the Body Priestesses are on a path where they are actively confronting, clearing and healing past wounds . As these Priestesses journey deeper into their sexuality, they are each traveling to inner realms of ecstasy, magic, manifestation.  They are traveling to quiet times of reflection, prayer, meditation. Back to the Body staff is supporting each woman to see and sense her own truth in a way that perhaps she has never seen it before.

"I will have my voice. I will have my serpent’s tongue — my woman’s voice, my sexual voice, my poet’s voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence. I will support my sisters to find theirs." ~ Pamela Madsen

Your Unique Expression of What is Holy

It's not always easy; but, as each woman stays with the her unique expression of what is holy, the staff of Back to the Body and the women who join us can see amazing shifts in their being.

Call it the Divine Mother.

Each woman steps into seeing the value and honor of her own femininity. As she clears the dust from her body, she can begin to see herself as a holy vessel that can not only hold sacred space for herself, but for her family, friends and community.

There is a hum in our nest. It's speaks of pure bliss as each women steps into a place of becoming more clear of her own life's purpose and her own ability to create this sexual alchemy in her own body.

Yes. This is a Priestess Training of it's own kind.

Loving You From Here,
