filling the inner well

OF INNER MARRIAGE, ANCESTRAL HEALING & ELEMENTAL AWAKENING
July 19th - 26th 2020 || Glastonbury, England

*Sacred Site Pilgrimages are annual intimate gatherings over St. Mary Magdalene’s Feast Day.

- The Gospel of Mary Magdalene
Our intention is to deeply prepare you for the activation you will receive while walking the ley lines of this sacred land which historically mark the potency of the Magdalene-Christ Union.
Before your pilgrimage you will be guided in a meditation to begin a deep apprenticeship with an Avalonian plant ally that will support you in your journey to, through, and beyond our convergence.
Many of you will feel the inner call to answer this invitation through an inner stirring that belongs to more than your inner knowing… a deep line of Celtic and European ancestors are asking you to step forth for more than just yourself.

As two women with intersections of identity: white + mixed-race, cisgendered, queer, we acknowledge that EXALT is offered through our lenses and the privileges that we hold. We acknowledge that oppression is a reality. We have a commitment to celebrate and center the voices and experiences of Womxn of Color, transgender and female-bodied non-binary peoples in this space.
It is our commitment to create space for anti-racism and liberatory work to be pillars of what it means to walk as Priestess within the EXALT Community, and beyond.
We are aware that this work is so much more than diversity + inclusion, it is about creating a community founded on the principles of anti-racism and anti-oppression.
In this particular immersion as we explore sexuality, the trauma that many women hold in this realm, as well as the themes of abundance, we will be doing so through the awareness of the systemic oppression, racism, and capitalism that guides our experiences and beliefs, and working to decolonize our mind/bodies by taking responsibility for the ways we may unconsciously perpetuate these misbeliefs, and contribute to an oppressive + dehumanizing system. We will be holding communal accountability on how we take this work from our immersion into the world.
We agree to remain radically open to feedback and learning ever more about our capacity for greater responsibility. If you have any concern or questions about this, please reach out and share.
Each immersion has 2-3 half-priced scholarships for Women of Color, and creates opportunities for the EXALT community to contribute to those scholarships.
If you want to learn more about these values, and how their centered in this work, please watch, or re-watch our heartfelt share on the HOME page.
Together Karen + Luna steward EXALT in it’s rapid unfoldment, trusting in the grace and support gifted by the Magdalene, who resides as the guide and guardian for these collective immersions. They gratefully commit to walking this unfolding path as each next step becomes clear and made possible by more and more womxn showing up to remember alongside them.
Karen and Luna have studied and trained collectively for over 20 years with teachers in multidisciplinary healing arts + ceremonial traditions. They have given themselves to learning the full breath of the Magdalene path. Luna and Karen both share a commitment to leadership, love, and liberation through their shared and individual service-work.
In marriage with the Inner Wisdom that continues to be revealed with every authentic “yes!” and the balance of education and ritual, they alchemize all of this within the cauldron of EXALT to serve incoming initiates and priestesses continuing on their own path.
Karen is a transformational guide, womxn’s witness, mentor and devotee of The Feminine Face of God. She integrates converging paths of embodiment, self-initiation, and oracular activism into her many offerings. Trained as a Clinical Mental Health Therapist with emphasis on social justice, mindfulness and trauma healing, she is forever a student at heart. She supports people to treat their bodies as temples, become living vessels and walk on the pilgrimage of life lighter and more joyful than ever. She believes that through surrendering our will to the divine there is hope for all of us in the Great surrendering and that no one should ever have to do it alone.
Luna is a Woman of Devotion, Soul Midwife, Transformational Leadership + Alignment Mentor and host of the podcast, Radical Remembrance. She assists today’s leading changemakers in sharing their full presence and gifts while achieving clear vision and aligned action in their Divinely guided purpose. Luna provides supportive, life-promoting experiences, practical tools and spiritual wisdom.
