It is a woman who thrives and owns her femininity and is empowered by the Sacred Divine. A priestess is a healer, a seeker, a mystic, an artist, a crafter, a dancer, a lover, a warrior, a mother, a wise one in the service of her family and community. She aspires to be a beacon of light to those who are on their spiritual journey. Her goal is to facilitate your own spiritual growth and transformation. Her desire is to empower you so that the evolution of human consciousness and the human soul is manifested.

She is an appointed minister of the Circle of the Sacred Earth Church. The Circle of the Sacred Earth Church is the only church in the country that is religiously based in animism. She believes in the path of direct revelation because it empowers the individual to rediscover their true authentic self. Shamanic practices enable you to find the answers and healing you have been searching for during your life’s journey so you can live a full, happy, balanced life.

Monica currently leads The Singing Blue Lotus Temple in Colorado Springs, CO. The temple engages and honors the earth, deities, helping spirits and ancestors. Its mission is to educate and build a community of those who seek to walk the path of a shamanic witch. It will educate about the craft, core shamanic practices and guide the individuals to discover their true selves and to gain a better understanding of the world around them. As part of the temple’s ministries she facilitates the following community events:

  • Full Moon and New Moon Ceremonies: As we honor nature, we establish a deep connection with the Moon’s cycles. Let’s take time out of our busy schedules to celebrate and connect with the Divine during this special time of her cycle. Come and celebrate with like-minded individuals the magical energies of the Moon.
  • Sabbats:As we honor nature, we establish a deep connection with the Earth and Sun’s cycles. Let’s come together to celebrate and connect with the Divine during these special times. Come and celebrate with like-minded individuals these joyful neopagan holidays.
  • Pagan Youth Group:The group meets monthly and it is geared toward youth between the ages of 12 and 17 that are interested in gathering and learning about pagan/spiritual beliefs and magical things while having a little fun with other youth that share their same spiritual interests.
  • Feather and Bone Shamanic Journeying Circle:The circle practices core shamanism and meets on the first Sunday of every month between 5-7 pm. Our time together gives each other the opportunity to journey as a group and establish a local shamanic community where we can find support and encouragement to do the great work. During our gathering we will journey several times to further our own shamanic experience, as well as addressing any individual concerns. All traditions (including “no tradition”) are respected and welcomed, we grow in our practice by learning from each other and sharing our experiences.
  • Feather and Bone Shamanic Teaching CircleIf you have the desire to learn more about core shamanic practices this is your opportunity to learn, grow and move forward in your personal spiritual journey with like-minded individuals. During our gatherings we will introduce and discuss basic information and shamanic skills. The goal is for you to be able and confident about utilizing shamanic practices in your own spiritual path.
  • Changing of the Season Fire Ceremonies:Fire is transforming and purifying. It provides the way for you to let go of the trials and tribulations you have had so that you can be renewed and have a fresh start. During a fire ceremony, you will take the time to honor the lessons you have learned and to leave behind the old beliefs that no longer serve you by giving them to the Spirit Fire. In this manner fire will release you from these old patterns and beliefs facilitating emotional, mental and soul healing.
  • Monthly Shamanic Guided Meditations:Come and find relaxation, rejuvenation and healing. You will be guided on an unforgettable journey into the realms beyond this one. Take the time to connect with the Divine and explore places you have only dreamed of.
  • Shamanic Healing Ceremonies:While we are busy living our day to day lives we encounter situations and experiences that cause energetic imbalances and energetic intrusions. Taking care of ourselves is important and this ceremony will provide you with the ability to bring yourself back to balance through shamanic healing. Come and receive shamanic healing in an intimate small group setting. By the end of the night you will have received cleansing, blessing and healing. Though it is in a group setting you will receive personalized healing and energetic balancing.
  • Healing for Mother Earth Ceremonies:As we continue to industrialize and urbanize, we destroy and pollute our natural resources and natural surroundings. Take the time to connect with Mother Earth and show her your gratitude for all that she provides us. Let’s gather to give Mother Earth, her fauna and flora the much needed healing so they can be revitalized and become healthy once again.
