Priest/esses honor the cycles and seasons of nature, and of life. They learn from, and work, with the natural rhythms of the earth, sun, moon, and stars. They observe and value the relationships between earth and sky, nature and humanity.
In families and communities, priest/esses bring awareness to the way change affects life by creating time and space to honor life passages. They create and often officiate ceremonies that recognize the transitions of birth, puberty, a new job, the loss of a job, marriage, divorce, menopause, elderhood, and death.
Priest/esses may counsel and support others in times of crises, transition, healing, and creation. They may assist through their prayers, meditation, deep listening, or simply being present and bringing awareness and attentive witnessing to a situation.
A priest/ess brings the sacred into form by connecting to Divine energy in their creative pursuits such as dance, art, writing, music, theater, ceremonies, rituals, and celebrations.
Deeply connected to their spirituality from the inside out, a priestess or priest may also be a member of any religion or have connection to none. They may connect to the Divine in nature just as well as in any home, church, synagogue, or temple.
A priest/ess makes a direct connection to the Divine from within and can apply it to every area of life.
