What does “Priestess of the Temple of the Global Goddess” mean?
As many of us know, prior to patriarchy which is only around 5 thousand years old, prior to Buddhism, prior to Hinduism, prior to Christianity, prior to Islam, the whole planet worshiped the Divine Feminine. We know they made thousands and thousands of small figurines, which have been found all over the world, designed to be held in the hand, to keep them connected to the great Cosmic Mother of All, who provided for their every need. During this period, going back as far as we can, there were no signs of any gods, or any signs of war.
The people were “governed” essentially by the Temple. As patriarchy became more and more entrenched, we find the appearance of queens and then kings. But during the Golden Age of the Goddess, only the Priestesses of the Temple, following the leadership of the High Priestess, ministered and governed the secular life and the Spiritual life of the Community.
Priestesses trained for many years to be “ordained” and were completely in service to the Temple. To day, women who feel the call to be of service in a spiritual sense, can train to become a Priestess of a Temple. To my knowledge there are only 5 Temples in the world who offer a residential/face to face Priestess Training: The Glastonbury Goddess Temple, the Swiss Goddess temple, The Italian Goddess Temple, the San Diego Goddess Temple, and the Temple of the Global Goddess in Maitland.
