A remarkable channel for the Mother Divine was present,
Healing herself and celebrating Life.
“I have seen each of your faces, and witnessed …The Moon beams, strongly suddenly, just as my overwhelming feelings of despair and sadness and longing for life’s sustaining movement in grace, swells up. And higher and clearly my 3 rd eye opens—my intuition and faith guides me through life’s mysterious unknown to creative opportunities and energy for life’s challenges ahead—Father Sky, Mother Earth--Inspire the shift of paradigms to manifest the highest good for all concerned and attract paradise on earth for all."
When I encountered Path of the Ceremonial Arts, I was at a true crossroad in my life, and seeking answers to deep heart/soul questions, like: How do I really want to live my life? What are my gifts and how do I live them into the world? Why does my life look like this, and how do I want it to look?
In my three years in PCA, I was welcomed, witnessed, loved and honored by a group of women who were also pursuing such life-inquiring questions. The most powerful, cherished things for me from my time in PCA were witnessing other women grappling with their own challenges, and seeing them transforming themselves into who they truly are, developing new confidence and courage, sharing dreams and visions, co-creating beautiful, personally enriching ce
remonies, crying and laughing and dancing together, each of us safely, lovingly held by our collective circle.
I have used the experiences and tools I gained in PCA to continue to deepen and mature myself, consciously exploring my being and my life. Living has become richer, more exquisite and sublime, as I have become more fully engaged and aware. I feel connected to myself, the earth and the cosmos, feeling my place on the wheel of life as ever before, and feeling the deepest gratitude for that sense of connection.

I was one of the first women to join the program and circle that is PCA. That was in 1999, and my life has been enhanced and changed ever since. When I say changed I mean that all that I was feeling and envisioning - all that I questioned- was supported, held nd honored as my personal journey. This enabled me to move more deeply and freely through the process of discovering my place in the greater. It created a safe/sacred place to join others and be the authentic woman I am. I received insight, strength and the tools I needed to continue into fullness and authenticity. YEAH PCA!!
PCA is the best thing I've ever done for myself -- the most important tool of self-discovery and personal growth. Yes, we learn about the "ceremonial arts" (sacred circles, divination, working with energy and the four directions, etc), but we also learn about ourselves. PCA is not just about learning how to hold ceremonies but also about becoming the kind of person who has enough self-knowlege, compassion, intuition, and awareness of her surroundings to be ABLE to hold ceremonies. Whether you ultimately wish to use these skills as a "public" ritualist is up to you.
PCA attracts the most amazing women! I've made so many close and lasting friendships and found a truly supportive community. The sisterhood and acceptance and love is real, and it allows each woman to explore herself and her relationships in a truly safe and nurturing environment.
The group is held together with impeccable integrity by Lila and Anastacia, who both possess an awesome blend of experience and skills. Each meeting is challenging as well as fun, a beautiful and meaningful present waiting to be opened each month. I feel so fortunate to have lived in a place and time where something this rich and profound has come together in one place.

What I cherish about PCA is the opportunity to deepen into the mystery of the Divine feminine with a group of like minded women. In this Chalice I feel safe, loved and connected. I love it so much I travel 4 hours each way to attend!
The Path of the Ceremonial Arts has helped me to find my authentic self within a circle of unconditional love. Through this circle I've learned (and am still learning!) how to love myself with the same unconditional love I find it so easy to offer my sisters! The PCA is a concentration of remembrance, laughter, soul connection, love and dancing our hearts! I believe all women will benefit from what ever contact they can make with this amazing program!
My experience in PCA has deeply and profoundly touched my life. I would go so far as to say PCA has altered the course of my life, shifting, nudging and beckoning me into health and true happiness. Working with a select few models/tools that have been presented to me so far, I have been able to see into my own souls heart and become a better woman, everyday, a woman I want to be and it just keeps getting better!
You are all such amazing and beautiful women. It is such an incredible gift andhonor to sit in ceremony with you all, and to share in the mysteries of the Divine Mother, laughing and crying together, healing our wounds and weaving such a beautiful web of light and magic.
This has been such a profound and transformational time for me. I am so incredibly grateful to be able to trust this Chalice and dive into the void and dance on groudlessness... I really felt an energetic shift throughout the Chalice this last PCA gathering.... Incredible authenticity, deeper bonds and sweet connections.....
With Gratitude, Blessings and Much Love~ Judi
