GRAIL PRIESTESS

Reclaim the feminine heart of England’s ancient heritage, come home to your sacred medicine, and become an ancestral wisdom keeper

OCTOBER 31st, 2023 - MAY 1st, 2024

A 6-MONTH DEEP DIVE PROGRAM with TARA WILD

A heartfelt journey to reconnect with land & lineage, blood & bone, come home to a true sense of self that’s rooted in wholeness and belonging.

This program offers a clear pathway of reconnection and ancient remembering, inspired by the mysteries of the Grail. Through this personal, cultural, and lineage repair work, you’ll be guided to release shame and become a feminine embodiment of the Grail—a vessel of living wisdom & ancestral medicine.

Designed for women who identify as English or who have English ancestry

THE GRAIL

Since time immemorial, the Grail has been a mythic, mystical symbol connected to the lands that we now call England: a symbol of transformation, earth wisdom, and spiritual power, held by the hands of women.

IN THESE TIMES OF CHANGE, THE GRAIL INVITES US TO RECLAIM OUR ANCESTRAL MEDICINE & INHERITANCE.​

This is a sacred calling to remember the wisdom of blood and bone, land and lineage,  in deeply powerful ways. To step onto this path is to embark on a quest in which we must dare to ask important questions, seek spiritual truths, and unearth who we truly are by understanding our ancestry, history and heritage.

GRAIL INQUIRIES

How do we reclaim our spiritual roots and heritage, without bypassing England’s history of colonialism, violence and harm?

How do we come to terms with England as Empire, and heal from the predatory mindset that has dominated our culture for generations?

What if we were to re-imagine our English identity in ways that bring forth healing and reconciliation?

And what if the maps back to wholeness are hidden in our ancient mythologies?

Many of us who identify as English or have English ancestry feel shame about our colonial history—which can prevent us from embracing our heritage

In a recent survey, nearly 20% of people in Britain said that they feel a sense of shame about the British Empire. These feelings of colonial shame extend beyond Britain, experienced by many around the world with English ancestry.

This shame can make us resist or deny our own ancestors, and reject our history and heritage. But in doing so we also reject ourselves, and hold ourselves back from embracing ALL of who we are.

Perhaps you’ve been seeking and searching for a long time…hoping to discover a true sense of who you really are. 

New Age Spirituality would have us believe…

…that every modality and spiritual tradition is up for grabs. That we can love and light our way to healing, self-fulfillment and empowerment. The problem is that the New Age mindset perpetuates colonial cycles of extraction, while bypassing core wounds and shadows.

We’ve been imprinted with colonial frameworks of disconnection, self-absorption, isolation and entitlement for so long, across many generations. A courageous spirit is needed to reckon with these shadows in compassionate ways, so you can come home to your deepest and truest self in ways that are integrous & grounded.

Here’s what I want you to know…

Until you come to terms with your own shame & shadows, tend to your own ancestors, embrace your own heritage, face difficult truths, dig into core wounds & unearth your medicine…

SHAME, DISCONNECTION & A SENSE OF feeling LOST ARE LIKELY TO PERSIST.

It’s absolutely possible to feel proud of being English, without bypassing England’s history of colonial harm

For those of us with English heritage, shame about our colonial history and culture is a core wound that’s rarely talked about, and impacts the way we feel about our own identity.

As you’re reading this, perhaps you’re thinking: Yes but how do I deal with my feelings of shame? How do I embrace my English heritage without ignoring the harms of the past?

Perhaps you even feel hopeless or stuck in the complexity of these feelings, and believe that there’s no solution but to suppress, deny, and carry on.

I want you to know that it IS possible to embrace your English identity in authentic and meaningful ways, without spiritually bypassing or denying any part of yourself. 

It IS possible to feel a deeply rooted sense of belonging by connecting with land and lineage, blood and bone—and to know that you are undeniably whole in ALL that you are.

Praise for Tara

“There are no words to profoundly express the space Tara holds in any of her offerings, with her combination of storytelling, mythology, folklore, singing, and guided visualizations. The sisterhood support offered a safe space to share, and I received nothing but love in return.”

- ERIN

Praise for Tara

“For the first time in my life I feel deeply connected to my lineage and my ancestors. I have a path forward that includes them. Getting to know them better, having them be an integral part of my journey toward our collective and continued healing, discovering my life’s purpose and living a life that honors them and our ancestral medicines is something I am very much looking forward to.”

- ANGIE

When we release personal, cultural & ancestral shame, we discover the truth of who we are and the unique ancestral medicine we carry

To truly embrace your identity and heritage, it’s essential to free yourself from layers of shame, repair fractures in the lineage, and come to terms with the shadows that you and your ancestors hold. 

This devotional path is about de-centering the self, while simultaneously nurturing your medicine. Within this duality of self and selflessness, you will learn how to heal from colonial imprinting to honor the sacredness of the all.

An important part of this path of remembrance is learning how to truly see…not with the eyes, but with the heart. By seeing life through the sacred vessel of the heart, we learn how to walk a spiritual path with deep humility and reverence, heal core wounds, and unearth our medicine.

THIS IS THE POWER OF THE GRAIL PRIESTESS PATH

Who I am & the path I have walked

While I live in the United States, I spent much of my childhood in England and grew up inside of the culture there. My father is English, I have English ancestry, and I have family in England, too. 

I have a complicated relationship with my Englishness, and I have a lot of feelings about England’s history of imperialism and colonization, and how these dynamics are still playing out today. For a long time, I secretly denied this part of my ancestry and heritage, and held deep feelings of shame.

As I have grappled with these complexities, dug deep into the roots of my ancestry, and come face to face with the shadows of colonialism, I have discovered a great deal of medicine that has brought me a profound sense of reconciliation, healing, wholeness and belonging. 

My intention with this offering is to make this path easier for others to tread, so we can remember and reclaim our heritage together in ways that are integrious, courageous, and true.

THE GRAIL
PRIESTESS PATH

This unique program focuses on personal transformation as well as cultural and lineage repair, initiating you to become an ancestral wisdom keeper and feminine embodiment of the Grail.

Our native mythology holds maps of remembrance to our pre-colonial identity that can help us make sense of who we are today. On the Grail Priestess path you will activate these ancient maps. Through these embodied feminine teachings, you will become a guardian of these ancestral and cultural life-ways.

The Grail mysteries include powerful themes of death, transformation, and life…which is why we will follow this age old path of initiation as the framework for this journey. This will be done in collaboration with ancestors, teachers and guides who will support you through this transformational process.

This journey includes A VARIETY OF SACRED TEACHINGS:

~ England’s native mythology, folklore & history
~ Sacred feminine teachings
~ Shadow work
~ Ancestral healing
~ Land reverence
~ Bone tending
~ Elemental rituals & practices

These simple yet profound ancestral teachings are deeply spiritual and practical, and will support your lifelong path as a Grail Priestess in truly embodied ways.

Praise for Tara

“My ancestral journey in the best hands with Tara. She’s a skilled facilitator, offering beautiful journeys, teachings, and lessons that have allowed me to do ancestral work in a way that’s safe and community-driven, in a love oriented container. Tara is a fantastic teacher, I can’t recommend her enough!”

- ALEXIS

Praise for Tara

“I deeply appreciate and value Tara’s ability to hold space. I have so much gratitude for her wisdom and breadth of knowledge, which is deeply integrated in an embodied way.  Tara speaks with clarity and eloquence weaving stories, songs and long forgotten truths.  She facilitates a beautiful healing space with a gentle and warm heart.”

TRAINING INCLUDES

1 Opening Ceremony

In our opening ceremony on October 31st, we’ll gather together in sisterhood and step onto the Grail Path together. This call will serve as a foundational introduction to the Grail mysteries, but will also be an opportunity for you to set your intentions and ground into the circle of women who will be walking this path with you. 

12 DEEP-DIVE TEACHINGS CALLS

Throughout our 6 months together, you will be invited to 12 deep-dive teaching calls (2 per month). Each call is 2 hours long, and is recorded for those who can’t attend live. These calls will include a combination of mythology, history, wisdom teachings, guided journeys, sister sharing, and practical guidance.  These calls are a great place to ask questions, receive mentorship from me, and connect with others on this path.

12 ELEMENTAL RITUALS & DEVOTIONAL PRACTICES

Between the live calls, you’ll receive homework to develop spiritual skills and devotional practices that are grounded and deeply practical; such as bone tending, land reverence, offering prayers in the Proto-Celtic language, singing to the sacred waters, flame keeping, shadow work, and more. These practices are an important part of this journey, as they create the foundations of how you will truly live this path beyond this program. These rituals and practices are simple but profound. While they do not require a lot of time, there is a powerful deepening that happens when they are practiced over time.

WISDOM PORTAL, COMMUNITY SUPPORT
& GRAIL SISTER ECOSYSTEM

The journey to repair and reclaim our roots is most impactful when done in community, as our heritage belongs to all of us and we each hold pieces of this remembrance. This program will be hosted inside of a private online network (The Grail Priestess Wisdom Portal) where you can engage with the content and with others on this journey. This is a safe space to ask questions, share your insights, and receive community support. For those who want it, there’s also a Grail Sister Ecosystem where you can pair up with another woman on this journey to process, integrate and share as we move through the curriculum. This is entirely optional, but it’s a wonderful opportunity to connect more deeply for those who want it.

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES FORUM

Inside the Grail Priestess Wisdom Portal, there’s a forum with a wide variety of links and recommendations to expand your knowledge and deepen your path. These resources include information about England’s sacred and historical sites, ancient artifacts, the ancient dead, tradition & belief, English history, England’s ancient goddesses, figures from myth & history, folk music & dance, related fictional works, book recommendations, videos, and more. You will be able to share your reflections on any of the content you engage with, and share your own resources with others.

1 CLOSING CEREMONY

We will come together to close this journey on May 1st, honoring all that we have learned, unearthed and discovered together, and celebrating the ways that each woman has unearthed her unique ancestral medicine and inheritance. This call will include a powerful community-led discussion about how we can create a new post-colonial identity, and what it means to be English in these times of change. This is an opportunity to speak and dream from your heart, and listen to and learn from others in return, creating a resonant field of collective wisdom.

Praise for Tara

“Tara is a true gem. Surviving, let alone thriving, during dark times can be a challenge, and Tara shines a beacon of light in the darkness. She doesn’t just shine her own light, though, she activates the flames of transformation and healing for others. She is a powerful teacher and healer, with abundant wisdom and compassion. My standards for facilitation, sacred space, meditations, and transformative journeys are very high. I count Tara as one of my most powerful and enlightening teachers. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

- CARRIE, USA

Praise for Tara

“I’m extremely wary of spiritual teachers. In my 53 years, I have never worked with a teacher I trust as much as Tara. Her professionalism, teaching ability, authenticity, passion, and leadership qualities combine in a way that make working with her a truly inspiring, fulfilling, and nurturing experience. Learning from and being guided by her has been transformative, allowing me to reach into and heal parts of myself I’ve never been able to even access before.”

- SUSAN, USA
