~ An Intentional Year of Exploring & Creating Your Path with the Goddess
I will forever hold that each individual Spirit has their own experience and tradition that develops with the Divine – and IT IS VALID.
Walking with Her is a Pathway for each person to find and create this relationship with the Lady, while being supported by a practicing Circle. I have Walked with Her for over 25 years. I will share as much of my knowledge and experience as I can, while holding space for Her to speak and Guide you in your own beautiful relationship.
Intention: Within a Guided Framework, you will find and develop your own tradition of Walking with the Goddess. You will receive assistance and support from your Circle and Circle Guardian (Nikki Featherstone), as we all travel through a year-long immersion into ritual, magic, study, myths, journey, spell craft, ceremony, and more; together.
Commitment: 9 monthly Circles/Gatherings, and 4 Intensives (Friday night & Full Day Saturday, non-accommodation) within the year.
Total of 13 Gatherings – 8 Regular Circles, 1 Community Gathering (decided upon by Circle Members), 4 Immersions
– Locations will vary, however the majority of the monthly Circles will be held at Haven’s Studio in Hay Lakes, and the Immersions will be somewhere within an hour or so driving distance from the Edmonton/Camrose area. Carpooling will be encouraged! 🙂 ** From dialogue with Circle participants, at least one Immersion will be a group journey out to an Alberta Sacred Site, which will entail driving Friday night and staying over – camping, motels, etc. to be decided. This site has been used for ceremony and worship for 4500 years.

** This is a working, learning, and practicing Circle, and therefore, each Circle Member is welcome to bring ideas and needs to the Circle for learning and sharing.
** There will be homework between Circles for each member to complete for their own development in tradition and practice. Homework could include researching a tradition that inspires you, and/or a certain Goddess myth that you are drawn to. In addition, to ensure you are not stuck in the theory of your study, homework will include weekly experiential practice of activities that we are learning in Circle, so to develop your skills, comfort levels, and personal spiritual tradition with the Goddess.
** The year immersion will end on a Closing Ceremony that participants will get to create/co-create, so to make it a deep and powerfully personal experience.
This Circle is Sacred, Safe and Free of Judgement. Guided by a professional Art Therapist, Spiritual Seeker, and Practicing Witch for 25 years, this space will be one of curiosity, exploration, and engagement. Although the intention has been focused for those who are new to the Path or seeking a relationship with the Divine Feminine, the Circle is open to anyone who is called to come – if you already have a relationship with Her, this year-long immersion may function as a pathway to deepen and enrich this Sacred Connection.
If this resonates with your beautiful Spirit, please get in touch! Once we begin, the Circle closes, and no new members will be allowed to join.
