Summoning your ancient wisdom


Summoning your ancient wisdom

The Magical Sabbatical is an online gathering place for women to connect and cultivate their sacred wisdom. Women used to be the Keepers of Knowledge in almost all societies around the world; that ancient legacy resides in our DNA. It speaks to us in quiet whispers we now know as “women’s intuition.” My role as creator and facilitator of the Magical Sabbatical, which runs quarterly from full moon to full moon in 8-week sessions, is to introduce you to your own power and divine legacy. By participating in the Sabbatical you will learn how to:

• Create and maintain sacred space in your home
• Enjoy ritual process and celebrate lunar phases
• Trust and develop your intuition
• Use magical tools like candles and gemstones to heal, grow, and create
• Blend potions and perfumes
• Summon ancient wisdom that resides deep in your lineage and spirit
• Craft sacred tools like wands, medicine bags, and herb bundles

If you have looked for online community of like minds and kindred spirits, and a place where you can come as you are and leave transformed, this is it. Women of any age, any background, and any tradition are welcome here. This is not a course on witchcraft, though pagans are certainly welcome; we gather our Sabbatical practices from about a dozen ancient and modern spiritual traditions. It is a program designed to familiarize you with a variety of magical practices and tools that you can integrate into your own personal spiritual path.

For 9 weeks we gather virtually, at your own pace. There are live meetings where I stream video lessons and teachings right to your computer, but they are recorded so even those are available on-demand. So you learn on your terms, at your pace. You’re never late, never behind. We have a secret Facebook group, but you’re not required to have a Facebook account to participate. The course is housed on a password-protected part of the Sage Goddess website.

A very generous donor has offered to fund ONE seat in the Winter Sabbatical for a deserving winner; this kind spirit has asked to remain anonymous in her gifting. To enter to win the free seat, simply comment on this post or on the Facebook post and mention what in your life you wish to transform through this experience. If you’re already registered and you win the giveaway, your course fee will be refunded. I’ll draw a winner on Thursday, November 15 and announce it here. Good luck!

The program is already half full. To register and secure your spot now, visit:

I look forward to circling with you this Winter. We have much to celebrate together, sisters.

And so it is.
Bright magical blessings,

  1. I am 54 years old, and I have denied the sacred part of myself for the last 40 years. I was well on the path to discovery as a child, but abandoned it for the sake of others’ opinions. I now need desperately to return to my authentic self and live life fully.

  2. Athena – I wish you and all of the lovely woman that have gathered a magical experience this Winter. Light and love <3

  3. I know I will transform in many ways… I am looking to see not only what I “see” but to really open my eyes to what the universe is wanting me transform… even if I dont know yet know what it all is…

  4. Athena…what an amazing course and how generous of someone to offer to fund a seat in it! I would absolutely LOVE to win a spot…as this course falls in line perfectly with the transformation I’m working on in my life. I’ve been recently diagnosed with a very painful back condition that has no cure and causes me chronic pain (a first for me, and at just 40…so unexpected).

    I have been learning a lot about natural ways of dealing with the physical AND emotional pain, and have been focusing on learning as much as I can about energy work, crystals, essential oils and herbs. This course would not only help me learn how to incorporate ritual and magic into what I have already learned…this will literally help me transform from a space of hurt and pain and into a space of healing.

    I believe that the moment I stopped fighting against the pain and opened myself up to what the universe had to offer…I have been led in the right direction ever since. I don’t think that finding this course was any accident and I hope to have the opportunity to join you on this Winter Sabbatical…to grow, learn, heal and transform…enlightened, spiritually guided and on the road to permanent healing:)

  5. Hi Athena
    I am 24 years old and trying to find my deeper calling I was drawn to you and your page 2 months ago and I feel like this is exactly where I am suppose to be! I think the the winter sabbatical would be a great stepping stone to my spiritual path to transform and grow for the better! Ive always been told that I have a higher purpose and a deep connection with the other side and I would really like to deepen my connection and I think this would be a great opportunity <3

  6. What a lovely offering…this Winter Sabbatical looks amazing…I am looking to connect more with my intuition and transform that which is holding me back from trusting in myself and moving forward.

  7. Your donor is truely kind –> and must have done previous Sabbaticals with you to understand their importance and significance! I have reached a cross-road in my life: need to find fullfilling work; child moving on in her life; extreme stress due to my personal environment. I would love to learn how to channel my energy toward positive change, and release myself from negative influences!
