What are the Terms and Conditions of this Training?

Terms and Conditions

Dance and Ceremony as a Modality for Healing

Under the direction of Anandha Ray, you will have the opportunity to study and embody the position of Priest or Priestess of the Goddess Isis. This training is offered through the Iseum of Quimera which specifically uses the language, rituals, and ceremonies of dance as a means to offering public service and healing. To become a Priest or Priestess of Isis, we each dedicate ourselves to the Goddess Isis and to two additional gods or goddesses of our choice.

We expect all initiates to walk with highest integrity: be honest with yourself, be early, do the work, walk the path.

What are the Requirements to be Ordained?

To be ordained through our training, which is called the Iseum of Quimera*, the initiate will:

  • Discover your connection to the gods and goddesses, choosing three (Isis and two others) to dedicate your services.
  • Learn ritual and ceremony through the modality of dance (medicine of movement).
  • Learn ancient ceremonies of various cultures, while creating your own embodiment of rituals, ceremonies and services you can offer.
  • Prepare your mind, body, and spirit for ordination.
  • Attend all gathering for the training.  See the schedule and put dates on your calendars right away.  No absences are permitted except ONE EMERGENCY absence (not double booking yourself, but rather real emergencies like acts of God/dess).
  • Optional, but highly recommended: attend the Convocation in October 2017 to officially receive your blessing as you pledge the one-year path to become a Priest or Priestess Initiate.  There is a fee for Convocation and you must register with Isis Oasis.
  • Create your Priest or Priestess regalia (clothing and vestment/shawl, crown, athame and/or wand).
  • Become confident writing and offering blessings and anointing.
  • Optional, but highly recommended: create and offer your own dance(s) in ceremonies with us.
  • Optional, but highly recommended: develop plan for the services you will start offering as Priest or Priestess.
  • Write your one-page, poetically-written, spiritual biography to be to be kept in the file of the Temple of Isis.

 

Legal Ordination

After satisfactorily completing a 1 year term of study and all of the requirements listed above, the Initiate will be ordained as a legal clergy, Reverend Priest/ess of Isis, with all the legal rights and privileges of clergy including, but not limited to, the ability to marry people, perform death rites, gain access to hospital patients even when visitation is restricted, and perform rituals and ceremonies for the public. Ordination is through the Temple of Isis, and the Fellowship of Isis.

ATTENDANCE

Attendance at all events is required.

*The Iseum of Quimera is a school of the Temple of Isis. Different schools have different divination tools (Tarot, music, astrology, goddess workshop). It is directed by Anandha Ray and we use dance as our divination tool.

What if I live FAR away or have to miss some dates?

Absences are not permitted… but there are exceptions and we have a plan for those who live at a distance:

  1. DISTANCE: If you live farther than 300 miles away can thus cannot make it to the monthly gathering for Serpent Ceremony and Teacher Training you will miss a lot.  However, if this training is calling to you and you want to make it work we have a solution.You can attend the 2 Temple Immersions and 3 retreats.This does not change the price of the training, the Teacher Training is included for free.  But this makes the time commitment doable for those who would have to fly in from other countries or across the continent.  YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE THE TEACHER CERTIFICATION if you do not complete the teacher training classes we offer each month.  You will receive SOME teacher training in the 2 Temple Immersions, and if desired you can do private classes* if you really want to be able to do the Teacher Training certification.
  2. ACTS OF GOD:  If you are in the hospital or have to visit a dying relative, it is understandable that you would have to miss.  If you double book yourself we will ask you to cancel the double booking.  We ask you to put ALL DATES ON YOUR CALENDAR NOW so that you will not double book yourself.  This is important.  We expect you to do a make-up private class* when your life resolves.
  3. PRE-PLANNED DATES: If you already know you have dates you cannot attend.  If you are keen on doing this training but have booked yourself already for some of the dates… it is POSSIBLE to complete the training with private classes* to make up for what you miss.  Some have competed the training perfectly well this way.  THIS IS ONLY AN OPTION IF YOU TELL US THE DATES YOU NEED TO MISS WHEN YOU SIGN UP

*Making up missed events with Private Classes are an option when your life absolutely conflicts with the training for a reason stated above (Distance, Acts of God, Pre-planned Absences).  To complete the training in these circumstances Private Classes are offered by Anandha ($100 per hour) or by an Ordained Priest/ess ($50 per hour).  It is an expensive way to complete the training but it has been the only option for some.

DATES REMINDER*
Bolded dates are the required dates for those who travel far and must opt out of the Teacher Training option.

What will we do?

As we meet throughout the year, we will dive deeply into the guiding philosophy of the Iseum of Quimera: understanding ritual and ceremony in the context of dance. You will become an invaluable member of the Tribe as your own gifts and skills become a part of who we are and what we offer to the public.

THIS IS MORE THAN ONE YEAR OF TRAINING – THIS IS AN INITIATION INTO OUR TRIBE FOR A LIFETIME.

You will gain experience with assisting in rituals and ceremonies, performances and workshops.

We will also experience and thoroughly understand such things as:

Priestess Smudging toolsNecessary aspects of being a modern priest or priestess:

    • understanding how and why sacred rituals work (from ethnological and scientific frames of reference),
    • methods of creating blessings and sacred rituals including death rites, birthing and ceremonies,
    • smudging, anointing, use of athames,
    • when and how to access the calling of the directions,
    • sacred pipe and “blood” rituals,
    • use of serpents, feathers, and other symbols in healing ceremonies,
    • choosing and dedicating yourself to three gods or goddesses,
    • leading groups: the use of speech and gesture, as well as managing group dynamics

Optional Sacred Journeys (in retreats), including when available:

  • sacred medicine ceremonies,
  • fire-walking,
  • sweat lodges

Esoteric and healing aspects of dance and performance:

  • understanding when, why, and how dance heals,
  • choreography and performance coaching,
  • creating performances (for specific events),
  • learning the teaching methodologies of Intuitive Dance Technique
  • learning the teaching methodologies of Waking Dreams

 

Handmaking sacred tools and gathering needed items and supplies:

  • creating your own CROWN, (PICTURED: The High Priestess headpiece Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 8.45.56 PMworn by Suhaila Salimpour was made by Anandha)
  • creating your Book of Illuminating Shadows (your own Priest/essing handbook),
  • Making a medicine bag,
  • writing your SPIRITUAL BIOGRAPHY,
  • having a PHOTO SESSION to capture both dancing images of you and head shots,
  • and more!

What texts will we use?

While we will be developing YOUR OWN dogma as a Priest/ess of Isis, you will be making educated choices about every subject we discuss. The books below will assist you in understanding the mysteries of the Egyptian pantheon.

These text are for you to study independently. We will talk about them on occassion, however, reading them is homework that you do on your own.

I created Shamanic Fusion Dance, and I have not yet written a book about it, so all of your experiences in this realm will come from me.

We will read the following books. Although we may not have formal discussions about the books, you will be expected to absorb the knowledge in these books to be able to participate in discussions about this material.

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 7.44.31 PM

The Mysteries of Egypt by deTraci Regula (the Hierophant of the Temple of Isis)

This book will give you a thorough introduction to the path of Priest/ess of the Goddess Isis.  There is a wide variety of knowledge in this book that will be important to know.

The Egyptian Awakening prayer is written in this book and everyone will memorize this prayer before being ordained.

 

 

 

 

Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 7.43.42 PM

Shamanic Mysteries of Egypt by Nicki Skully and Linda Star Wolf

This book is a remarkable journey into understanding Egyptian Gods and Goddesses and will be valuable in helping you to determine what two God/desses you wish to serve.  Though it is likely your God/desses will choose YOU, by studying them you begin to determine who calls your attention and become more attuned to their differing energies.

 

 

 

 

 

OPTIONAL, BUT RECOMMENDED

Isis Magic by M. Isidora Forrest Very detailed, pretty advanced info on specific incantations, etc.

Isis Magic by M. Isidora Forrest

 

 

What does dance have to do with Isis?

Isis is the goddess of 10,000 names. She is known as a goddess of dance. In stories and ceremonies of the goddess Isis, she often dances as a means of moving healing energies. When you read of the gatekeepers at the Isian Temples, they are described as moving with the grace of dancers and rituals often mention the priestesses as dancers.

Through the Iseum of Quimera, we dedicate ourselves to the goal of creating dance as a healing form.

Shamanic Fusion Dance is the MEDICINE OF MOVEMENT.  It is the use of dance as a healing source for dancer and viewer alike.

Through Shamanic Fusion Dance we perform actual rituals and ceremonies that shift energies into a healing vortex… aligning with the use of symbol in the language of the subconscious. It opens the spirit to possibilities that the mind otherwise limits.

We will hold ceremonies in which we dance, and the dance will become something that you could offer publicly should you desire.

How dance figures into YOUR priestessing is your choice.

We Dance With Integrity

One of the highest tenets of taking on this training is to attain the highest level of integrity and discipline. To perform Shamanic Fusion Dance requires one to be pure of ego. To this goal, we engage in several rituals and ceremonies to purify our spirit and subconscious belief systems. Additionally we hold ourselves to a higher level of integrity in our own behavior including:

Pledge
  • Arrive early for all gatherings.
    A $50 early bird discount is built in to the cost of the training to help support people learning to embrace this important aspect on integrity.  Those not more than 15 minutes early loose the discount and pay an additional $50 for that gathering.
  • Put ALL dates on your calendar before committing to the training.
    You are expected to keep your word and attend all events of the Iseum of Quimera.
  • Making financial arrangements before committing to the training.
    The option of making payments is offered for those who prefer that to lump sum payment.
  • Avoiding gossip and negative talk of all sorts.
    One of the most important tenets of the Isuem of Quimera is that we:
    -are non-judgmental,
    -make every effort to understand people’s circumstances,
    -offer support when people need it,
    -encourage and learn compassionate means of communicating with each other and the public,
    -speak the truths that are difficult, and
    -constantly come from a place of love in our interactions.
  • Embrace all aspects of discipline.
    This includes but is not limited to:
    -working hard when hard work is called for,
    -arriving early even when no early bird discount applies,
    -taking on a responsibility to the group that is your job for every gathering,
    -dressing in a manner that reflects your status (white at ceremonies, etc.),
    -eating well and developing healthy habits,
    -leaving cell phones turned off the duration of all meetings, ceremonies and rituals,
    -being responsible financially,
    -following all rules and regulations of the meetings and ceremonies, (phones off, etc.),
    -completing all homework, and
    -bringing all necessary items to meetings, etc.

Gross failure to uphold the Terms and Conditions of the Iseum of Quimera is grounds to discharge a Priest/ess Initiate from the training. Even in this case, there is a strict no refunds policy.  All efforts are made to teach these standards when issues arise and there will be many opportunities to communicate gracefully whenever issues or conflicts arise.

Quimera Oath

The Quimera Tribe Oath of Truth
This oath is the foundation upon which the members and Elders of Quimera Tribe build our community. We take this oath and promise to do the inner work necessary to be strong in word and of ear, and to bow to the wisdom of each other in grace.

This is the oath we make as a member of Quimera Tribe, where in the safety of trust, we can be a source of inspiration and motivation for each other. This oath is the foundation upon which the members and Elders of Quimera Tribe build our community. We take this as a “blood oath” and promise to do the inner work necessary to be strong in word and of ear, and to bow to the wisdom of each other in grace

THE OATH
“I dedicate myself to consciously do the work everyday to face my fears, to really see myself, and to be the pure vessel for the positive growth of humanity and our planet.  I take this oath to face the darkness and my personal fears, seeing the value of this as equal to the value of the light.  Furthermore I take an oath to do so everyday for the rest of my life, with an intention to surround myself with others who seek the same goals.”  

 

Becoming a Priestess initiate is one of the best choices I have ever made for myself. Not only have I been challenged to dive deep into my own personal growth, I have been offered a variety of tools on how to do so in very healthy ways. Add to that the comfort and vulnerability of working within a group of like minded individuals. It’s so much more than learning beautiful rituals and ceremonies, so much more than studying ancient art and lore. We are called together to serve as ambassadors of the Earth and of Spirit, to find and share our individual mastery within the human tapestry.

ALWAYS NOTE ARRIVAL TIMES… YOU HAVE RECEIVED AN EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT FOR PAYING AND ARRIVING EARLY

WHAT IS THE EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT?

Do you have the deep cellular knowledge
that you are called to this work?

 

Perhaps ancient memories are emerging from another lifetime?

 

Being an initiate, learning to be a dancing priestess has been a multidimensional healing journey! Evolving as humans together, practicing the path of Unconditional Love (committing to our best, and forgiving mistakes) ,opening to the energies of the Goddess… This has been a most magical, and Real year . I am no longer lonely in the muggle world, because I have a spiritual dance tribe. I am endlessly grateful to Quimera Tribe, and especially Anandha Ray for leading us on this path. What is Amazing is that I entered this training feeling “not good enough” to be a priest/ess and now I feel ready to step up and admit that i am a vessel for the Goddess, even when I feel “not good enough”! I feel energized and ready.

You are about to

embark upon

a journey

that will change your life…

The average price for a one-week retreat (like the 3 we offer)
is typically priced between $3,000 – $4,000 each week.
Immersions are never less than $600.


We offer 2 temple immersions,
11 serpent ceremonies,
3 one-week retreats,
and

experiences that unlock the mysteries.

We are manifesting a tribe of dancers to walk a lifetime together! Together, we are creating a Financial Alchemy Container. We as a tribe will hold an energetic container to help manifest abundance in your life… all the resources you need to follow this calling. Once you make this choice, it will begin to flow with ease and grace. Your part is to start your practice as a Priest or Priestess by deciding how you will wield your resources. In your life, YOU must decide what is achievable and manifest it!

It is my goal to be accessible to Souls who truly desire this work. The costs are kept extremely below market price, while still being thorough in offering a rigorous course of study and practice. There is no better VALUE for this amount of your money, time and life-resources. Because the prices are so low, there are no scholarship options.

If this is your calling, manifest it, you are powerful!

 By the end of your training you receive over 400 hours of training:

  • 2 temple immersions,
  • 3 week long retreats,

HOW DO WE KEEP THE COSTS SO LOW?

This is a service of love!
There is not much profit built into this, your payments are basically just covering expenses.
We ask part of your payment in dedication, commitment and service, check all dates on your calendar and always arrive early!

What does that mean “we ask part of your payment in dedication and commitment and service”?

The cost of the training is kept very low.
However, there are other character “costs”. Anandha asks each Initiate to hold themselves to highest standards of:

  • Dedication: put all dates on your calendar now and schedule your life around them,
  • Commitment: arriving on time, doing your homework, making payments on time, and
  • Service: taking on the work of the Iseum, seeing jobs that need to be done and doing them including…
    Annointings, Blessings, Smudging
    Setting up the room/altars, taking down the room/altars
    Sweeping the floor, throwing away trash, making the room neat and tidy
    Carry things to and from Anandha’s car for any and every event we do
    Being of service to realize and care for Anandha’s needs when her attention is on the ceremony/group needs
Other Costs
