Please note that this course does rest on an assumption that you’ve already done or are concurrently doing the personal spiritual work required for priestessing. The focus of this program is on vocational priestessing: priestess work as a viable occupation.

Experienced Facilitator Registration is available for women who want all of the resources without the training component. Please read here for information about this option.

We also have several payment plans available:

What people are saying:

First a MASSIVE thank you for the work you are doing, I have learned so much from you…the depth and clarity of the practical Priestessing course has surpassed my expectations! I am happy I decided to delve into the WomanRunes course which led me here… right where I am supposed to be.

Your work is real and authentic and it resonates with me because I’m real and I live in the real world. And I love that I found you at the right time in my journey!

I am in the middle of another 13 month Priestessing course and while it is very in depth on a spiritual personal level it is lacking on the vocational level as actually working in the community as a priestess. And while I realize that we need our own deep personal connection with goddess spirituality in order to share that with others, there is another layer for those that feel the call to go further. I feel like that it what I am getting from this course and I am truly grateful for all of you sharing the journey.

–Nina H.

I was fortunate and excited to be in the first Practical Priestessing class. It would be impossible for me to adequately express all that I gained from this program. In addition to getting all of the necessary knowledge and materials to begin on the path of a vocational Priestess, I also learned a great deal about myself in the process. Molly did a beautiful job of combining academia and her own personal experience leading women into a program that truly suits the needs of those who feel called to serve. She is a gifted writer and presents the material in an easily understood way. Not only that, she is accessible, supportive and serves it all up with love. The sisterhood that was established amongst the class members was also amazing. I have never felt more understood and accepted in a group than I did all throughout this training. We learned, laughed, cried and celebrated the successes of one another. If you feel called to serve in this capacity, I highly recommend this class. You will be astonished at all of the ways it will enrich your life and allow you to feel confident in “calling the women to gather.”

Thank you Molly for sharing this work. The format of this course is more than I could have ever imagined.

This course deeply supports my work as a circle facilitator and ed/behavioral consultant whose work is based in the grounding power of rhythms and ritual.
