Daughters of Ishtar
Women's Mysteries & Feminine Wisdom for the Contemporary World

Women's Mystery Ceremonies

The core of the Ishtar mysteries is expressed and experienced through an annual cycle of eight ceremonies: aligned to cyclical journey of the sun through the four stations of the equinoxes and solstices and the mid-points between. Through this annual cycle of ceremonies, we are called back into connection with our own innate beauty, strength and wisdom as women.

Beginning from a threshold moment in the cycles of our lives, each ceremony opens a doorway to an inner experience of the divine feminine, the Great Goddess.

These ceremonies are strongly devotional in nature, offering women space for personal prayer & reflection as well as the opportunity to experience a sense of connection and sisterhood with one another. Typically, we share in a guided meditation, chant sacred Goddess names, move our bodies, share a simple blessing with each other, and generally soak up the delicious life-giving energies of the Great Goddess through four distinct aspects of Her being related to four dimensions of feminine power and embodied female experience.

The ceremonies invite us into a deepening relationship with the eternal and yet ever-changing faces of the Great Goddess. They remind us that we too are created in the image of the divine.


The mystery school and its ceremonies are open to women of all ages and life-stages who wish to deepen their connection with the Feminine Divine. Whatever your existing religious/spiritual affiliations may be, your curiousity, open mind and open heart are most welcome.
