White Moon Teachings are a curriculum in personal empowerment and priestess training. The course takes approximately two years to complete. The course is eclectic and Goddess-centered, built upon the foundation of the Women's Spirituality Movement as it has evolved over the last 35 years. This training is open to people of all faiths who are seeking to incorporate the Goddess into their existing spirituality. Curriculum includes Goddess studies, ritual, meditation, prayer, magick, healing, divination, dreams, and astral work. One-on-one instruction and interaction with other students is provided. Graduates of this course are eligible to enrol in a public ministry course and to receive ordination through The Order of The White Moon.
Level I (four months) focuses on Goddess studies, sacred space, ritual, and personal empowerment. The first level essentially serves as a foundation for daily practice. Students observe the seasons, connect with the moon, and begin mediation, energy work, and spell crafting. Both novice and experienced students are required to begin with Level I. In this, and each subsequent level, students create a final project focused on a particular Goddess.
Level II (four months) deepens the study of meditation and energy work and introduces the practice of divination, focusing on the Motherpeace Tarot. This level also contains a strong emphasis on chakra work and self-healing. Level II students choose to follow the Path of Prayer or the Path of Magick.
Level III (five months) strongly emphasizes dream, astral, and shamanic work, and introduces body-based lunar astrology. In addition, students choose three elective areas of study: gemstones, herbs, candle magick, dream work, healing, and Tarot spells. For the last month, students undergo a practical internship in teaching, divination, healing, or prayer.
Students must satisfactorily complete all of the assignments in order to receive course certificates. Levels II & III include some elective course offerings (where students may choose what to study), but most of the course material is required.
Ceremonial Cords and framable Completion Certificates are awarded at no extra cost to those completing each level.
Level I : Initiate, white cord
Level II : Adept, red cord
Level III : Priestess, black cord
Qualifying graduates of Level III may apply to Level IV for public ministry training. Graduates of Level IV are eligible to receive ordination.
Level I graduates automatically become members of The Order of The White Moon or our affiliated Order of the Rainbow Moon.
Tuition is US$30/AU$40 per 4 weeks of lessons. There is no extra fee for moving through the lessons more slowly. The entire fee for each level is US$120/AU$160. (Level III includes one month free.) Students must also buy approximately three textbooks for each course level.
Tuition covers lessons & assignments, personalized instructor evaluation & feedback, and discussion & support from other students. In addition, students will receive audio lessons of guided meditations & exercises. Any other materials needed should be readily available around your house or at a local thrift store. No expensive tools are needed.
The Order of The White Moon is an eclectic international order of women dedicated to The Goddess. The purpose of the Order is two-fold: to help restore spiritual balance on earth by restoring the Divine Feminine to her rightful place, and to assist female seekers in their personal and spiritual development. It is the position of the Order that all spiritual paths and belief systems can benefit by incorporating the Divine Feminine.
The Order offers personal empowerment and priestess training to women aged 18 or older, via our online schools or through a local system.
