Priestess Apprenticeship: This year has been like an accelerated version of all the initiations and rites we are meant to experience over the course of our lives but don't anymore. I never saw any of this coming. PR
"Following my intuition to join Red Moon Mystery School is one of the best things I've ever done for myself. The curriculum has deepened my relationship with my body, my spirit teachers, and most importantly, with my inner archetypes. Through this curriculum I have come to feel more whole. I have reconnected with the cyclic nature of the earth and the moon and with my own inner rhythms. Perhaps most importantly, the initiation rite at the end of my first year of training has provided me with a much needed milestone marking my transition into spiritual adulthood. I am deeply grateful to Nikiah for her wisdom and guidance and for holding space for me and my fellow priestess-sisters to undergo this sacred, transformational work." Amy Sedgwick-Red Tent Sisters
"If you feel called to feed the wild woman within, to dance closer to the sacred, and imbue your life with mystery, than this apprenticeship is for you." Dianne.
The words that I wish to offer to Nikiah and her teachings through Red Moon and beyond are more like a song of gratitude that sings from my soul. The way she has nurtured my healing and guided my process into my own Becoming is nothing short of magic. In truth~ she is magic. She embodies Priestess and Teacher in a way that is both humble and powerful. She holds loving wisdom and fierce grace. Every moment of my journey with her has been revolutionary and I am so thankful to have her guidance on this Path, for it is not easy. I would choose Nikiah again and again and sing her praises to those seeking to remember their stories and walk their Beauty Way. The ways in which my soul has opened and my voice has been uncovered has been a process of magnificent discovery. I never knew how much I needed the lessons that I uncover in the Grove. I have peeled back layer upon layer and am still going. I am unfolding into the beauty and mystery of all that I am and living the Priestess Way with vulnerability and courage. Without Nikiah and Red Moon, I may never have felt this awakening into my own Walking Magic. I am truly grateful. ~Brandi Woolf
Dear Nikiah, " I just wanted to say I am LOVING! the last couple months of priestess work- it is certainly intense as usual! I feel that in many ways before this, I was unformed, taken apart- unravelled in the void, and I kept drawing very intense cards about destruction of ego & self. Then I stepped into the Dark Mother lesson and it all came together. I did my initiation journey today and feel like I have retuned whole- with more tasks yet to complete but inspired. Thank you so much for creating such deep, beautiful and transformative work." Bridget Di Luzio
"I am a seeker and forever learner--always looking for experiences to enrich my life journey--and many times I go off a whim when signing up for a new experience. Nikiah's priestess apprenticeship started as one of those programs that settled in like a feather, but as the year went on, it became apparent that this was not a program to sign up for and then file away for another day. This program demands and deserves your attention. What started as a whim for me has turned into a powerful journey that has rattled my very bones to the core of my heart. "K"
The priestess apprenticeship was one of the best gifts I gave myself this year, and I am grateful for the time it has given me to learn new things about the world and about myself. The healing and understanding that has taken place still continues, and Nikiah is an insightful and effective mentor. She encourages you to be present for the work, and she holds you accountable to be honest with yourself. What I admire most about Nikiah is that she is a real person who shows up herself, walks the path with integrity and leads through modeling. I appreciate her heart and spirit and how it is woven into the lessons we receive each month and how each month I felt so aligned with what she put together. In today's world, where there are so many programs and teachers and experiences to choose from, I am so happy that I found Nikiah. I look forward to seeing how this apprenticeship will continue to unfold in my life and in the lives of others." Thank you, Nikiah, you are a gift! Kali Higgins
Over the past year and I see some significant gentle growth in myself through this work. I find myself more grounded and through this work I feel I have gained some powerful tools for understanding myself, and I feel like my heart voice that has always been there is more of a presence let loose from the cage that it was stuck in perhaps. Brianna
"The priestess apprenticeship with Red Moon Mystery School empowers us to become the most vibrant versions of ourselves, women rooted in the sacred that surround us, while bringing our gifts to the world. It is a powerful and transformational journey that allows us to dive into our deepest shadows, transmute them into strengths, and ultimately discover our most authentic selves. I am profoundly grateful to be walking this path with Nikiah and feel blessed and supported by her wisdom and compassionate strength. This work is a celebration of the divine feminine and of ourselves as women." P.G
"My year of study with Nikiah has changed my life - which of course sounds cliché, but couldn't be the farthest thing from it. With each new month I gained a deeper understanding and knowing of myself, not just as mother or daughter but as all parts of the woman I was born to be. I have always been a spiritual seeker but I've never quite found the thing that worked for me until I began to learn to journey with Nikiah. Through the combination of shamanic journey work and deep self work that this course provides, I have found a greater connection with my authentic self, with nature and with the divine feminine - the great mother of us all. I feel that I am now walking my true path and I am excited to continue my studies with Nikiah, a nurturing, supportive and powerful teacher, mentor, priestess and friend " Terra Mentz
"The journey work I'm learning with Nikiah is like the cheesecake after a long time without have had it...nourishing, divine, delicious! Always challenging, this work brings a lot of joy into my life and helps me sort through daily life's ups and downs on another paradigm. Moving, awakening, sometimes gentle sometimes ferocious, depending on what our spirit needs, working with you has brought me many break-throughs...sometimes I feel like nothing is happening and then blam! Light comes pouring through or tears, whatever is needed at the time. Intense yet gentle... Maya Jaguar
Around the time that I turned 40, I experienced feelings of restlessness and wanting something "more" in my life, which is perhaps not so out of the ordinary for this milestone birthday. I was familiar with Nikiah's spiritual work as a shamanic practitioner, and so I went to her for some guidance. I explained to her that I was seeking a spiritual quest, and more depth and meaning in my life. She described her Red Moon Mystery School to me, and I was so delighted as I'd not heard of it, but it sounded perfect for me!
I then started my journey and wow, 2016 turned out to be one of my most creatively productive, meaningful, life-changing years ever. I've explored corners of my psyche and my soul more thoroughly than I ever thought possible, and it's truly made more of a positive impact for me than the two decades of counselling I went through prior to this. I love that I now have this rich spiritual dimension in my life now - I love tending my little altar, going on shamanic journeys with my power animal, and gathering items for my medicine bundle. Nikiah is an incredible, warm and present guide on this journey - she holds the space for us beautifully as we each embark on our own adventures. I can't recommend Nikiah and her offerings highly enough. She is a living treasure! Christy Goerzen
Everything about the Red Moon Mystery School’s Priestess Path is simply, irrevocably life-changing. The work in the grove and in life mirrored each other like liminal dancers. At times intensely so. I was unformed, taken apart- unraveled in the void- after each step of release, initiation, shadow dancing and deep remembering, I discovered another part of my soul- Thank you, Nikiah, so much for creating such authentic, beautiful and transformative work. Jessica Booth
Through Nikiah’s Priestess course I have learned to love aspects of myself that were deeply hidden and were difficult to acknowledge. I learned to see parts of myself that did not have a place in my life at this time. I have learned to see the honour and blessing that is mine as I bleed each month. Now at the end of the course, I am starting to perceive some of the falsehoods that society has taught all of us. My thinking is different. I am deeply grateful that I had the honour of taking this course and highly recommend it. Nikiah is an inspiring woman and is a humble and powerful teacher. -Suzanne Dowdeswell
