The Path of the Priestess
PRIESTESS SCHOOL by Ness Bosch
Awakening the Priestess Within
We are Priestesses, we have not disappeared, we are reborn from the ashes of our ancient predecessors. We are unearthing an ancient path for future generations to find, to see it as clear as the sun itself and the moon, the stars, so that no one can get away from the gods or tell us that we can not connect with them.
They are the ancient gods that have called us to their service, they have awakened us so that we could bring them into a world of chaos and disconnection with the sacred in which we live. The ancient gods never left us, the patriarchy and the monotheistic religions disconnected us from them and tried to forget them.
The path of the priestess is beautiful, full of magic, of sacredness. It is a way of working to rebuild connections, to take off our modern shoes and put on the invisible sandals that take you to the temples of the ether and the abode of the gods. The invisible sandals that will allow you to walk on the old roads to bring to our time the gods and ancient gods.
I offer you the possibility of being initiated as a Priestess or Priest of the ancient Gods following the training of the FOI, you can also direct your steps towards the depths of the waters and become a Sea Priestess or Sea Priest or take the exclusive Priesthood of Hathor or Priesthood of Ixcacao, if You feel a special call this goddesses in particular. The Priesthood of Ixcacao is very Shamanic and you will learn the beautiful Alchemy of Cacao.

Priesthood of Astarte
A Call to the Daughters and Sons of Astarte in the World.
Astarte is one of these Goddesses of classical antiquity in the Near East and the Mediterranean, that, thanks to her metamorphosis over the centuries, has survived through the millennia to our days. She has done it in a subtle way, disguised as Virgin of the Sea, under the name of other Goddesses, who emerged from her as a diffusion. Some of their devotees, actually ignore the real origin of their Goddesses. She has subsisted, with her own name, of course, but also fed in some way by all her manifestations.
From the Temple of Astarte, part of our work is the research on the Astarte and her cult, in general, but also specifically on the Iberian Peninsula, a key place to study the historical and spiritual evolution of the Goddess. In order to share this research work and provide the devotees of the Goddess, Astarte with historical material, as well as spiritual and practical material, which until now we have shared in a closed way.
The Temple of Astarte and her Priestesses, Mariana Vital and Ness Bosch, will share the Priesthood of the Temple of Astarte. Aimed at all those who wish to immerse themselves in a serious study of the Goddess in Iberia but also following her steps in other places. This Priesthood will be taught in Spanish, Portuguese and English.
If you want to meet Astarte and her different faces. Her history, her trajectory and her journey until she reached Iberia as Goddess of the Phoenicians. Get to know the Pre-Roman cults of the Peninsula, the Sanctuaries, Temples and immerse yourself in the Liturgy of the Temple of Astarte, study places open from November 1 of this year, until February 1 of 2023. Our Priesthood will begin in the Spring Equinox, in Ostara.
As part of the Study Program we have several Immersion Trips, visiting important archaeological remains and Sanctuaries related to the Goddess, in Iberia, but also in other parts of the Mediterranean. These encounters will take place along the Priesthood Spirals. This is a Training open to people of any gender.

Centers of Studies of the FOI that Ness Bosch Directs:
The House of the Fountain of Life: Lyceum of the Waters of Fire is dedicated to the Celtic and Iberian World and Mysteries and is the center from which the Curriculum of the College of Isis is studied. We have in preparation other formations focused on the Celtic and Iberian cultures that will be taught from this center.
All members seeking ordination with us would serve a basic training and preparation of 9 plus a Special Dedication of 4 Months (13 Total) in service to the deity of their heart. This study will be supervised by the hierophants of the Lyceum, but in reality the one who will supervise your work from the other spheres will be the chosen deity.
After this First Spiral the Candidate will have to Wait 13 Months before Being Ordained. During that period the candidate for Ordination is encouraged to continue his/her work either independently or under the supervision of his/her Hierophant, this time is necessary for the anchoring of the work with the Deity of the Heart and your devotion.
Those interested in continuing their path in the Priesthood of the Fellowship of Isis, may apply, depending on their good work and responsibilities to the community, to continue studying to become Priestesses or Hierophant Priests. This path is not for everyone, so you will have to make an application and interview prior to access.
The House of Love and Thunder: Iseum of the Power of the Heart is dedicated to the World of Ancient Egypt and is the center from which where we focus in related to the Egyptian theme studies . The Priesthood of Hathor by Ness, is taught from this center. Also the Iseum coordinates the Guardians of the Flame of Hathor.
The purpose of this training is to bring people who are interested in the Goddess Hathor to her mysteries, as well as to make a journey of exploration for different aspects of Egyptian culture. This coupled with practical exercises that compromise the program each month.

The Call To Hathor's Path
Hathor came into my life from the hand of the incredible Naomi Ozaniec, founder of The House of Life, Priestess like no other I have met in the Pagan Community in person, Mystic and Writer. May 2013 was presented as the answer to a long call to Her blessings. I was not clear if I should approach Isis or Het Her at that moment and our little celebration and the incredible Oracle given to us (Sophie, Tahya and me) by the Goddess and Naomi, left the way open to my work with her. Her entrance into my life was very intense and brought important changes until culminating becoming her Priestess by the hand of my mentor Lesley Harris at the Lyceum Domus Sophiae Terrae et Sanctae Gradalis founded by Caitlin Matthews.
I do not know what your calling is, the reason Hathor calls you to her side. Perhaps you need her blessings in your life, her help? Be that as it may, if she is openig the path for you to her take it as a gift. She Choose her children! Surrender to the call of the Gods, let the Sistrum guide you to her footsteps and enter her temple.
Dua Het Her!
In Eternal Gratitude to Naomi Ozaniec and my Sisters Sophie and Tahya at "la Mesa".
The Grove of Excalibur and the Lady of the Lake is dedicated to the Druid World and is the center from which we work relating to the European Druid Culture. Formations focused on this path are being prepared and will be taught from this center.
