Embody Presence, Pleasure & Purpose
"Taya Mâ embodies devotion. She breathes ritual and her presence is a direct transmission of love - true and clear. Taya Mâ’s presence demands presence and is a catalyst for transformation. She continues to be my biggest ally, support and witness on my path, encouraging me to be the most authentic, expressed and true version of myself." - Yael Illah, Devotional Artist
I offer high-resonance support to those ready to attune to the sacred, embrace their clear gifts and embody their deep dreams. The journey is intimate and the empowerment is real.
Structures for exploration, connection and transformation include individual mentorship and supervision, virtual courses, in-person workshops and extended training.
Offerings are in realms of ritual reverence, embodied vocalization, ancestral lineage repair, rite-of-passage leadership, trauma-healing, activating and inhabiting the sacred feminine and creating and guiding earth-loving prayer.
Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Training
Celebrate the sacred in body, earth and cosmos as an embodiment of Shekhinah - divine presence. Reclaim traditions of priestesses and prophetesses of biblical antiquity and of women healers, dreamers, and seekers throughout Jewish tradition. Immerse in ritual as a transformative practice. Train in and co-create a paradigm of earth-based, embodied, feminist Jewish spiritual leadership.
Mentoring & Supervision
We chant. We dream. We drum. We track sensation. We altar-craft. We cycle. We live as ceremony.
Receive direct, embodied and intuitive support, reflection and accountability in your personal and communal priestessing, ritual leadership
Ancestral Lineage Repair Sessions
Everyone has bright and well ancestors. And many of us have blood lineages that need healing and tending. Rooting in the places of greatest health in our lines - which often means connecting back long before remembered names - can be a great support toward healing ancestral trauma as well as anchoring blessing and familial gifts. Ancestral Lineage Repair sessions are in the model of Daniel Foor, who Taya Mâ has both taught with and trained with. Taya Mâ's work in this way specializes in - though is not limited to - ancestral healing in Jewish traditions and lineages.
