ISHTARA ROSE, ISHMARAMAY
I am a High Priestess of the Magdalene Rose, and a Priestess of the White Chalice of the Waters, and have been walking the spiritual path all my life. My awakening intensified after my first reiki initiation in 1993 and a intense spiritual experience in 1994. After many courses, certificates, initiations... I finally commenced Way of the Rose in 2017 when I fully immersed into the Magdalene ways to share the Rose teachings wider in the ways that I was called to do so, including Light Initiation ceremonies and courses online, and year long trainings to become a Magdalene Priestess and High Priestess, and sharing light transmission audio packages and one to one soul readings.
My teachings come mainly through MM and draw upon the idea that to heal the world we must first heal ourselves, and that time is now. I am commited to restoring the Goddess to her rightful place. The basis of Rose work is always self worth and self love with clear healthy boundaries. I work with my own intimate guides and have been initiated (and facilitate space for others to be initiated) by and with the Goddesses of Divine Feminine from varied traditions, including Mary Magdalene, Mother Mary, Aphrodite, Isis, White Buffalo Calf Woman & Sri AnandamayiMa, as well as Divine Masculine Ascended Masters such as Osiris, Babaji & Yeshua, Yogananda, Krishna, Black Elk, Sitting Bull and White Eagle.
MY STORY OF AWAKENING In 1996 I graduated from University (BA in European Studies of Philosophy & Literature) to embark on an artistic career in both theatre and fashion, which has been a lifelong passion and skill (& funded my university years), and which I continue to enjoy to this day. I am sensitive and empathic in nature and as a child had many sights and visions, and thus have always been drawn to exploring the mysteries alongside my fashion/performing career. Due to some early experiences & light memories as a child in the 70s and 80s, and later on experimenting in rave culture in the early 90s, in 1993 I took initiations into the 3 levels of Usui Reiki. Around the same time I had a profound awakening on lsd, but then I was told in a dream to avoid all 'mind altering medicine' from that time.
I continued to receive channelings and telepathic downloads, automatic writing and many other spiritual experiences, so I continued as a seeker on the path, as a member of mystery schools and doign courses in anythign from shamanism to head massage, which informed my theatre / fashion career (including travelling with a circus for a few years). Then it was much later in 2007 when I underwent another major key Divine Feminine Rose awakening whilst preparing for & also whilst birthing my first baby in a beautiful prepared shamanic trance at home on the moors on the Mary ley line, leading to my book “Manifest Sacred Birth”, and 18 months later went onto experience another shamanic trance home birth which was incredibly empowering.
Later I trained as a Kundalini Yoga teacher for children with StarChild Yoga (2012) as well as a Kundalini Yoga Teacher as taught by Yogi Bhajan with Amrit Nam Sarovar in UK and in France (2013) and practised in Italy where we lived for a while in the Tuscan hills.
I left that yogic path in the search of something more feminine and gently loving, and was honoured to find, train and ordain as a Magdalene Priestess with my teacher Margaret, and then proceeded to further train and ordain as a High Priestess, after immersing myself even deeper into the mysteries of the womb rose ways in both SW of UK and also with profound and intimate initiations in Provence and Languedoc in France through 2018 and into 2019 preparing for the 2020 gateway.
My path of the searching has not always been easy and like many, I have undergone several 'dark nights of the soul' sometimes forcing me into isolation and deep inner healing, but always emerging with the gift of deeper self knowledge and wisdom. Able to teach that which I have learned for myself.
I published my book "Mary Magdalene Way of the Rose" in 2017 and am commmited to fully sharing the Way of the Rose teachings through both public & private light transmissions and attunements as well as in my Priestess school.
