Dark Moon’s Heart

White Moon Teachings


White Moon Teachings are a curriculum in personal empowerment and priestess training.

The course takes approximately two years to complete, but can be completed in as little as 13 months at an intensive pace. The course is eclectic and Goddess-centered, built upon the foundation of the Women's Spirituality Movement as it has evolved over the last 35 years. This training is open to people of all faiths who are seeking to incorporate the Goddess into their existing spirituality. Curriculum includes Goddess studies, ritual, meditation, prayer, magick, healing, divination, dreams, and astral work. One-on-one instruction and interaction with other students is provided. Graduates of this course are eligible to enroll in a public ministry course and to receive ordination through The Order of The White Moon.

White Moon Curriculum

Level I (four months) focuses on Goddess studies, sacred space, ritual, and personal empowerment. The first level essentially serves as a foundation for daily practice. Students observe the seasons, connect with the moon, and begin mediation, energy work, and spell crafting. Both novice and experienced students are required to begin with Level I. In this, and each subsequent level, students create a final project focused on a particular Goddess.

Apart from their individual studies, there is an expectation that students will be actively engaged within the Order (through the OWMChat group) as a way of serving their spiritual community. Students will be introduced to OWM's Public Outreach programs where they will have opportunities to give back to OWM and the community at large.

Level II (four months) deepens the study of meditation and energy work and introduces the practice of divination, focusing on the Motherpeace Tarot. This level also contains a strong emphasis on chakra work and self-healing. Level II students choose to follow the Path of Prayer or the Path of Magick.

Initiates will continue with active participation in group discussions. Students will gain a deeper understanding of the workings of the Order by completing the following:
- at least one WTZ reading as a way to practice their tarot skills
- at least one submission to Seasons of the Moon, OWM's quarterly newsletter.

Level III (five months) strongly emphasizes dream, astral, and shamanic work, and introduces body-based lunar astrology. In addition, students choose three elective areas of study: gemstones, herbs, candle magick, dream work, healing, and Tarot spells. For the last month, students undergo a practical internship in teaching, divination, healing, or prayer.

Adepts will be fully immersed in the workings of the Order by continuing to be engaged in group discussions as well as the following:
- at least one WTZ reading as a way to practice their tarot skills
- at least one submission to Seasons of the Moon, OWM's quarterly newsletter.
- active participation in the Healing Temple

Students must satisfactorily complete all of the assignments in order to receive course certificates. Levels II and III include some elective course offerings (where students may choose what to study), but most of the course material is required.

Ceremonial Cords and Completion Certificates are awarded at no extra cost to those completing each level.

Level I : Initiate, white cord

Level II : Adept, red cord

Level III : Priestess, black cord

Level I graduates automatically become members of The Order of The White Moon.

Tuition is $30 per 4 weeks of lessons. There is no extra fee for moving through the lessons more slowly. The entire fee for each level is $120-US. (Level III includes one month free.) Students must also buy approximately three textbooks for each course level.

Tuition covers lessons and assignments, personalized instructor evaluation and feedback, and discussion and support from other students. In addition, students will receive audio lessons of guided meditations and exercises. Any other materials needed should be readily available around your house or at a local thrift store. No expensive tools are needed.

Qualifying graduates of Level III may apply to Level IV for public ministry training. Graduates of Level IV are eligible to receive ordination.
