Do you know your life was meant for something more, but you feel stuck or blocked to move forward?
Do you long to feel connected to Source, to your hearts desires, and to a Tribe of Sisters?
Come join this powerful weekend retreat in the sacred mountains of NC!
We will gather in intentional ceremony to: ~ Awaken Your Inner Priestess! ~ Call in your deeper purpose and vision your life moving forward~ What do you want to create? ~ Immerse yourself in sacred waters and cleanse away what isn't serving you any longer ~ Dance and sing by the fire with the fireflies dancing in the trees ~ Eat deeply nourishing foods that support your Body Temple ~ Connect with a Tribe of Sisters of the Heart!
This will be an introduction to the Sacred Path of the Mystic Priestess, and a very special opportunity!
The Age of the Priestess has returned.
In times past, we were the Healers, the Tantricas, Midwives, Muses, and Spiritual Leaders. We stood as equals, alongside our Brothers, as guides for our community, offering support, love, and healing. We were Intuitive, Grounded and Holy. We were honored and revered for our powerful connection to the Divine, to the Earth, and as an embodiment of the Sacred Feminine.
That time has returned.
A High Priestess walks the path of integrity and has given her life in service to the Divine. She is The One that has faced her Shadow, embraced it, and made it her ally to walk her life in balance as the Divine Human. She lives her life fully embodied in the Wild Feminine. She facilitates healing for Herself and others. She communes with Nature as her Power Source. She engages her Inner Sacred Artist. She treats Her body as a Temple. She sets boundaries with Love and Compassion to do her Divine Work in the world. She empowers her sisters to live in their highest possibility, moving out of the model of competition, into one of Collaboration, Communion and Support.
Walking the Priestess Path is a Calling~ You feel it in your Heart and Soul~ You feel it in your Bones~

“It was hella hard...and clearly life changing for everyone that went! It was absolutely something I needed to do to stretch myself. It’s taught me now, both in my business and in my personal life that everything is doable,even if it feels hard. I am strong enough to be able to conquer the heat, or conquer the bugs, sit with bees, or climb mountains, or whatever it is! I left the comfort zone of my home here in Arkansas to go be in the summer heat with a bunch of women, driving to Never Never Land in the middle of the woods! And it was worth it because I kept showing up. And each time, I grew a little more, I stretched my comfort boundaries, my comfort zone a little more. It’s helped me look differently at my life.
Eventhough it was my first time there, I felt like I’d been there before, I felt really comfortable there. I loved sharing the big house with the other ladies and our communing that we had together. We would hang out in the kitchen and just chat for hours. Each one of us was saying we never felt at home anywhere, we’ve never felt like we could just be ourselves. We’ve never had sisters with the same kind mindset and were all really craving that.
Coming out of that weekend, we all realized we were all in the same place, and miraculously we came together on this one weekend and we said we’d found our tribe! Everyone from the original group, whether they joined this Priestess Program or not, are still active on the Facebook page. It still feels like we’re connected. Which to me is very rare! (What I’ve learned in the Priestess Program) shows up when I don’t even realize it. When you say “Yes” (to this Path), everything shifts from there on out. Everything. It did for me, and I know it has for the other women in this group.
I’m SO grateful to you, Marcela, for showing us The Way of the Priestess. My life has changed for the better and I’m so excited to keep walking forward and witnessing the Miracles and Magic continue to unfold.”

Testimonials from Initiated Women walking the Priestess Path after their 9 month Immersion Program Completion:
"I can genuinely say that I love myself for the first time in my life. Embracing my past has allowed me to fully accept myself, and all the choices that I've made, and realize that this is my power source. I've now been able to fully step into my purpose as a tantric doula, and yoga instructor, with great excitement and joy! I am so grateful for for finding the Priestess Path and for all that Marcela has brought to it!" Cady Asch~ Charlotte, NC~ www.yourcharlottedoula.com

"Being in a safe Sacred Circle with other women was such an unexpected blessing! To be seen in our authenticity, in our wounding and sadness, as well as, allowing our secrets to be revealed and accepted without judgment, was so incredibly powerful! From this place of trust I've seen it reverberate out into every aspect of my life, including my personal relationships and my business. I've created a group program for my coaching business, that is effortlessly filling, as well as taking the very big leap to make some big changes in my marriage, which has needed to happen for quite some time. I feel so grounded and clear now with who I am in the world and what I'm bringing that I feel unstoppable! It's really remarkable what all unfolded in just nine months! I feel so blessed to have found Marcela and this program!"

"My life has done a complete 180 since I started this program! I made the bold move to leave my husband, even though I had no idea how I was going to support myself. Literally the same day I said yes to the program, I got a job offer that allowed me to step out on my own for the first time ever! I'm now working a dream job serving the Native American population and connecting with my own Native heritage in a way I've never known before. I'm starting to awaken to my spiritual gifts and know that I have a big purpose for my life that is unfolding in wild and magical ways, beyond my comprehension! I'm now pregnant with my second child and made the conscious choice to do it on my own this time. I feel so grounded and clear with who I am, and the decisions I'm making, in a way I never imagined possible, so much that I hardly recognize myself! I am beyond grateful for Marcela and this program. I honestly don't know how I could have done it otherwise."

Can we just come to the retreat and cover our own lodging and meals?
Early bird doors are open first for lodging and meals to be covered on site, as we highly recommend and encourage you to come and receive a powerful weekend experience by having these needs taken care of. This is an incredibly affordable opportunity for a full weekend retreat and we suggest jumping in to make the most of it by joining us on site and eat your nourishing farm to table, locally-sourced meals with us as the Sacred Circle will continue throughout all of our activities, including meal time. Give this to yourself as an opportunity to connect more deeply with women on site in a casual, relaxed setting. This will save you a tremendous amount of research and organization to setup your own lodging and meals, and these spots will fill quickly!
