Coursework: The Goddess and High Magic 🌹✨

“A Witch bows to no one. She walks in Her own Power. She creates everything She wants from the love and magic within Her. This is Her birthright.” – Rhiannon 🌀stara

The Goddess and High Magic 🌀 In the neolithic beginning, there was Goddess, matriarchal civilization and the secret knowledge of the magical energies of Mother Earth, Sun, Stars and Elements. Channeled by the Elder Wise Women to the Daughters, woven into their DNA, this is Herstory: Woman’s ancient birthright, the Craft of the Wise.

White Mare Sanctuary is the vision created by Rhiannon Ostara under the guidance of her teacher and mentor, the late Crone Mari Aleva, the Dianic High Priestess and Channeler of the entity Helm. Through 2001 they established an open Grove of learning and development for Women. On Autumn Equinox 2002, White Mare Sanctuary became a legal entity. 52 consecutive Full Moon Rituals later, the Grove had trained and initiated over 100 magical Women and Daughters into the service of the Goddess. 🌀

First offered at Autumn Equinox 2002 to Women and Daughters, this Neophyte and Initiate to Priestess study focuses on Woman’s spiritual and magical relationship with the female aspect of God-dess, the Intuitive Feminine. Open to all spiritual Paths and Beliefs. Daughters between the ages of 12 to 17 with parental permission.
