Priestessing, at its core, is a combination of two things—being able to recognize a need to move energy in a situation and then meeting that need with an array of techniques (the tools you assemble over time in your priestess toolbox).
We’ve all had the experience of being in a room of strangers or a mix of strangers and friends/associates and we find ourselves reading the room, reading the energy. We have an immediate sense of the people in the room—what is going on, what emotions are being carried. A priestess is someone who develops an ability to recognize the unseen energy in a situation and move it toward health, healing, empowerment, and wholeness for all.
Once unseen energy has been recognized (for example, tension, hostility, grief) a priestess develops skills to help name and express and move the energy with intention. She facilitates a participatory ritual, for the health and betterment of all. In ritual, sacred space is the container where teachings are used for her to serve.
