What is a ‘Modern Priestess’ – and how do you walk a spiritual path when so many of our traditional lineages are fractured? Elayne Kalila Doughty explains…
Elayne Kalila Doughty has been on the path of passionate service for the past 20 years. She is an ordained Priestess and the founder of the Priestess Presence Temple – a dedicated temple of the 13 Moon Mystery School which initiates women into the ancient mysteries of the Divine Feminine – in a modern context. Through embodiment practices and devoted service, the temple inspires women to unleash their leadership gifts and step into their full potential.
In this full interview, that you can find below, she shares with us the art and magic of becoming a living temple unto oneself, what it means to to embody the sacred feminine as a community leader, and what it takes to create an online mystery school, that involves holding sacred virtual space.
Kalila’s background is as a licensed therapist. After becoming aware that what she was doing didn’t really fit under her definition of a therapist, she met with a spiritual teacher who helped Kalila receive a profound transformation. This allowed her to enter that same lineage of spiritual teaching. Kalila eventually left her psychotherapy practice and fully entered the role of teaching spirituality through an online temple.
It can be difficult to know when you’re receiving spiritual information, and how to interpret it! Almost anything can be a source of spirituality these days. Kalila explains that we all have access to some kind of lineage, or spirituality, intuitively. Getting far enough out of the ego, and being quiet enough, can allow these spiritual insights to arrive naturally.
Kalila’s psychedelic experiences have helped her focus on the idea of integrity – a feeling of balance and authenticity, detracted from the ego. This has been hugely important in her spiritual path, and in determining the Truth of spiritual insights.
What does it mean to be a Modern Priestess? Since there are very few intact Priestess lineages remaining, a student has to be willing to enter a state of remembrance of past lineages. A Priestess must be willing to awaken herself and not hide any aspects of her energy. Sacred femininity is paradoxical, bringing together contradictory qualities, and a Modern Priestess must work to embrace these contradictions.
In this interview, you will discover:
- The key qualities of sacred feminine leadership
- How to distinguish between inspiration and a direct transmission of divine mystery
- The unique challenges modern-day priestesses & mystics face, and how to respond
