We are preparing our Goddess Temple Priestess and Goddess trainings for this autumn. They will be offered in person in Glastonbury and/or online depending on any restrictions in place at the beginning of the course due the progress of the Covid-19 pandemic. You may need to check with us nearer the beginning of each Training to find out what is planned. Currently there are 2 week quarantine restrictions for people travelling to the UK from abroad, but these may have changed by the autumn. We will try to keep everyone updated as time goes on.
Welcome to Goddess Temple Teachings!
Goddess Temple Teachings is the educational wing of Glastonbury Goddess Temple.
As a present day living Goddess community centred on the Glastonbury Goddess Temple, we are particularly devoted to the Lady of Avalon, Goddess of the Sacred Isle of Avalon, which is intimately connected to the town of Glastonbury, England.
Our purpose is to provide a grounded education in all areas of Goddess spirituality, particularly for those who seek Goddess in Glastonbury Avalon. Our aim is to offer the best Priestess trainings in the world.
Included in our activities are the following courses, with our new online courses at the top and Glastonbury-based trainings further down.
The Priestess/Priest of Avalon Training is the Foundation Priestess Training within Glastonbury Goddess Temple. Now in its 20th year of teaching It is one of the best Priest/ess Trainings in the world today. The course provides a gateway into a true understanding of what it means to become a Priestess or Priest of Goddess and Avalon.
Over three years students learn about Goddesses in Brigit’s Isles and the Lady of Avalon as Goddess; the relationship between Goddess and Her Land, Her Seasons and Cycles; the energetic principles of priestessing; the creation of effective ceremonies; and many priestess skills, including Oracling and Embodiment. The training helps deepen your personal relationship to Goddess and the worlds beyond form, allowing you to dedicate your life to Her. This is not a path for the faint-hearted, as it requires dedication, courage and persistence, but the rewards – emotionally, mentally and spiritually are immense, and you are supported on your journey of discovery.
As a Goddess-centred organisation we actively support the creation and continuation of Priestess Trainings, Goddess Events, Communities & Temples, Goddess Conferences and Festivals everywhere in the world, which are created by Priestesses of Goddess, and of Avalon living in Britain and other lands.
Our teachings are founded in the principles of Motherworld – the Society which places mothers and the values of mothering – love, care and support for each other, and for our Mother Earth, in the centre of our lives, rather than being left out on the periphery. We actively work to take responsibility for ourselves, for our life’s journeys, our wounding and our healing.
Each Priestess Training course is supported by a Code of Ethics and Conduct. All tutors within Glastonbury Goddess Temple agree to abide by these Codes of Ethics and Conduct, and encourage all students to do likewise.
Goddess Temple Teachings are committed to Racial and Gender inclusivity in our courses, as every person can come to know the path of the Goddess. Any person may apply to take part in a Temple Training regardless of Race, Ethnicity, Gender Identity, Reassigment and/or Sexual Orientation. We are dedicated in our support for all souls on the path to Goddess, and for the LGBTQIA+ community. Our teachings reflect this vision for the Goddess Temple and Her future Priestesses and Priests. Admission to certain courses is restricted by age and physical ability.
