ISHTARA ROSE, ISHMARAMAY
I am a High Priestess of the Magdalene and of the Rose lineage, and a Priestess of the White Chalice of the Waters. I have been walking the spiritual path privately all my life and commenced the Way of the Rose in 2017 after being guided to step up more for 'now is the time'. The message is clear - to heal the world we must first heal ourselves, and yes, the time is now. Upon my priestess path with my own private spiritual teacher, I have been blessed to have been initiated in spirit and guided by Goddesses of Divine Feminine, including Mary Magdalene, Mother Mary, Aphrodite, Isis & Sri AnandamayiMa, as well as Divine Masculine masters such as Babaji & Jeshua, Yogananda and Krishna, to run this Temple of The Way of the Rose.
MY STORY OF AWAKENING In 1996 I graduated from University (BA in European Studies of Philosophy & Literature) to embark on a wonderfully fun artistic career in theatre, and also in fashion, which has been a lifelong passion and skill and funded my university years, and which I continue to enjoy to this day. Yet I was always a sensitive drawn to exploring the mysteries alongside my fashion/performing career. Due to 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 then started to receive channelings and telepathic downloads, automatic writing and many other spiritual experiences.
Since then I continued as a seeker on the path alongside my theatre fashion career, very privately delving into many things from mystery schools to shamanism to angelic healing courses. Then it was much later in 2007 when I underwent a major key Divine Feminine awakening whilst preparing for & 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. I later 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 fora while in the Tuscan hills. I left that 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 beloved teacher, and then proceed 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 in Provence and Languedoc in France. My path of the searching has not always been easy and like many, I have undergone several 'dark nights of the soul' but always emerging with the gift of deeper self knowledge and wisdom.
I published my book "Mary Magdalene Way of the Rose" in 2017 and now share the Way of the Rose teachings through both my light transmissions and attunements as well as in my Priestess school.
