Initiation into the Mysteries of the goddess Sekhmet
8 Days, including 5 days Temple training

For several thousand years the statue of Sekhmet, with the body of a woman and the head of a lioness is standing in her temple. Are you hearing her soft call to meet her (again)?

Sekhmet, daughter of the sun god Ra, is one of the oldest known goddesses. The meaning of her name is 'The Powerful One'. She is the Lady of the Place of the Beginning of Time, the One who was before the Gods were, the Great Goddess of Magic, Healing and Protection. She is the first and highest creative force.

The initiation into the mysteries of the goddess Sekhmet is intended for women who want to explore working with this goddess and learn to work in a ritualistic setting.

The five Initiation days have the character of a mystery school intimately connected to the temple. Besides of performing the rituals, you'll learn how be in tune with Sekhmet, how to ritually purify yourself, preparation of the ritual, the functions in the ritual and how to perform these functions, opening and closing of the ritual, private morning and evening rituals, application of the holy oils, sacred texts and hymns. And most importantly, how to integrate your experience of the ancient mysteries into your daily life.

Important to know:
- This is not a workshop or therapy but a unique opportunity to learn about and have a direct experience with Sekhmet and work in an intimate ritualistic setting.
- We strongly advise you not to participate if you are or recently have been undergoing psycho-therapeutic treatment.
- In order to work with Sekhmet's powers, you must be in balance, spiritually, mentally and emotionally.
- Working with Sekhmet requires a high degree of responsibility and also a more than average degree of humility.
