At the heart of the origin of Western civilization, Ancient Greece had the powerful religious Rites of Eleusis where the sacrament of the Third Queendom, Ergot, was consumed to venerate the Divine Mother Goddess. Further North in Europe, both Scandinavian and Slavic indigenous practices have maintained a long-standing relationship with sacramental mushrooms. Our indigenous ancestors in North America venerated the Great Spirit to transcend this realm with the aid of sacred fungal cousins.
Today, these ceremonies have been largely forgotten by modern humans and yet, we recognize a collective yearning to sit in community and come to know something larger than ourselves. We invite you to sit ceremony with us in the old way. Our priestesses are experienced ceremonialists and sacrament carriers and, through ceremony, they will guide you to remember your ancestral self, to experience revelations and insights about your true divine nature and perhaps to expand your own understanding of yourself as an immortal soul.
The sacrament is a gift from the Great Creator and from the church. The priestesses as mushroom carriers may accept monetary donations for their services but never for the sacrament itself. Additionally, although we have multiple offerings for the community, ceremonies are open to church members only.

Spirit Sacrament Communion
For church members who sincerely wish to commit to building a long term, intimate and personal relationship with the sacrament, the Church offers 30 Day Spirit Sacrament Kits. This is an excellent opportunity to continue to commune with the sacrament outside of formal ceremony. Alternatively, this is a means of coming to meet the mushroom spirit individually before sitting a larger ceremony.
By ritually consuming daily sacrament in miniscule amounts, the dedicant builds a deeper understanding and relationship to the mushroom Spirit. This amount of sacrament is traditionally called a “spirit” sacramment because it contains very little actual sacrament to affect the physical body. Instead, it works in the spirit realm of the human in subtle yet profound ways.
Our priestesses have been practicing daily devotional communion for many years and are available to provide support and guidance in this practice for members as well as provide pastoral counseling in this work. Members may work with any number of kinds of sacred mushroom sacrament including lions mane, reishi, cordyceps or others. They may choose to work with church sacrament or their own as they desire.
Two pastoral counseling support phone calls per month are available to any members working with any sacred mushroom sacrament.

Spirit Weaving and Companioning
For members wishing to explore mushroom spirituality more slowly and profoundly within the context of ancestral lineage healing, Spirit Weaving and Companioning offers clients an open and safe space to be curious about how the threads of their own spirit may loop, catch and pull together to form a unique and beautiful pattern of spirituality.
A spirit weaver listens intently, patiently and confidentially as clients share sacred stories. She does not offer counseling, advice or problem solving. Instead, she accompanies clients as they explore their own spiritual path and empowers them to navigate what practices from their past no longer serve them, which to embrace and wish to continue and what new practices may be helpful to explore.
For each client, spirit weaving is a unique path of discovery and personal exploration in profound and unforeseen ways. Mushrooms, as sacred beings, assist us in accessing the wisdom of the Divine and help us identify and heal our own ancestral lineage wounds. Through deeper processing, connection and journey work, the spirit weaver is a companion to clients
uncovering their own unique woven mosaic of healing, connection to the Earth and ancestral identity.
3, 6 or 9 Month Spiritual Weaving and Companioning Services offered.
Monthly or biweekly meetings in person or virtually as determined by the spirit weaver and individual clients. A minimum 3 month (3 session) commitment is expected.
What is it to be human? What is the yearning that aches in each of us in a unique way? How does your spirit whisper about a longing that you cannot name?
Welcome to the mystery of being human. Our ancestors wrestled with the same mystery, the push and pull of our existence. In ritual, these ancestors often came to embrace this mystery.
Return with us to a practice of the old ways. Sensual Transformation invites you into an initiation into the mystery of being human, the wordless bliss that the sacred mushroom invites us to experience.
While it is difficult to reduce to words the experience of sensual transformation, the priestesses are well practiced in holding and supporting your journey. In this journey, you will explore intimacy and connection with yourself and others in an extremely slow and profound manner. In the space between stranger and lover, you will find the priestesses holding and supporting you to understand there is no darkness and no light but only wordless bliss. For some this is a return home and for others this is a journey to oneness. For each, this is an ineffable and deeply personal initiation into a mystery that defies language, description or comparison.
