In this episode of the Breathe Love & Magic podcast I am speaking with Tahverlee Anglen, founder of the modern mystery school – Moon Temple School. She’s a priestess of the wild who walks with the blood of Athena in her veins, and is a conduit between two worlds.
Yeah, this is a juicy discussion about Celtic Mysteries and Eleusinian Rites with an outrageous story you don’t want to miss!
Getting Started Practicing Magic
First, I asked how Tahverlee got started with magic. She consciously started using tools to shift her reality about 7-10 years ago. She says most of us use magic every day without even realizing it.
When you start tapping into energy fields or intentions in any way, shape, or form, you are altering reality. As a seer, she’s been using magic since childhood. The terms to give it definition came later in her life.
I wondered how Tahverlee got such a huge social media following so quickly. She explained that we are living in times where there is a great awakening. As we become less dense and release a lot of things, people are moving away from religion, but still seeking God.
This is the space where she shows up to ignite spiritual growth and is why so many have been attracted to her messages.
The Eleusinian Rites
Tahverlee had a clear message to do a solo ritual in Taos, New Mexico. She’d never been there before, but flows with this kind of calling. She planned the 24-hour ritual and found an amazing Airbnb.
Since she had such a fabulous location with 14 private acres, she felt comfortable embarking on this day-long ritual sky-clad (naked). Picture this…the sun is starting to set, she’s completed her cleansing bath, the candles are lit, and everything is set up.
Tahverlee steps outside to light the outdoor fire, sky clad and whoosh! All the doors slammed shut! So, she’s standing there naked with nothing but a sheer little robe and her combat boots that she’d left near her vehicle.
Keep in mind, she has no keys, no phone, nothing to cover up with, and she’s on 14 private acres of land near nothing.
High Magic Ritual
In high magic, once you start the ritual, you move into an altered state. So, she might not have been processing the situation completely right away. As the sun started to set, it came to her how far she’d have to walk while naked to get help.
She did get picked up miles down the road by a good person who helped her figure out how to get back into her Airbnb. While in the truck, she realized the ritual was still on and the journey had begun!
She surrendered to the trek and knowing the ritual was in process, things started to make sense. It took three days to complete, but it was the most magical experience of her life. It was also one of the most mortifying.
Once she got home and talked to her peers, they pointed out this was definitely the Eleusinian Trek. She had always been connected to the Greek Goddesses Persephone and Demeter, so she knew this was the Eleusinian Rites.
Pushing the Envelope
Tahverlee is not afraid to push the envelope and go to the edge. She thinks of this as being a shadow walker. That’s why she can help others in the modern mystery school, because of her willingness to go places many others will not.
My request was that she bottle some of that surrender because I am not good at it and we laughed. I shared my story about wanting to connect with Hecate, and being schooled on how to do it.
I was told I had to be at a crossroads, a wild place, alone at night in the dark. But my backyard has bobcats and coyotes, among other critters, which made me nervous to be out there.
What I loved about this conversation with Tahverlee was that while she’s a professed warrior, she’s also warm, supportive, and compassionate.
I was grateful how she pointed out that I had surrendered when it came to reaching out to Hecate. The way I chose to do my ritual was comfortable for me and she considered this to be a type of surrender, since I let go of worrying how it should work.
Turns out I did get a message in just 10-minutes! Tahverlee explained that “dogma” which is about all the rules, never replaces your own inner knowing. Well said.
The Tenets of Celtic Mysteries
Tahverlee walked the 13 steps, initiated as a Celtic Priestess, and went through this process with her daughter which was very special. Having family roots on both sides, in Wales and Ireland, she felt called to study that wisdom and knowledge.
Her great grandmother was her guide on the other side. She had come across the Atlantic on a sister ship to the Titanic. She originally was booked to cross on the doomed boat, but missed it! Tahverlee looked into her great grandmother’s life and what the Celtic mysteries would have looked like back then.
It’s good to know the different energies from various spiritual practices to better serve people from all over.
The Modern Mystery School
Tahverlee is the Temple Keeper of the Moon Temple School since she’s the one who oversees bringing people together for community and learning. In addition, her warrior spirit wants to ensure the students have protection.
She also has a Temple Keepers class that meets monthly, like the Witch’s Mastermind. People pursue divination, go deeper into studying the mysteries, and may also share with others. That’s why it’s important to know how to be your own temple keeper.
We also talked about:
- The rise of the divine feminine
- The rise of the warrior spirit
- Warring for yourself vs. against others
- How to get in touch with what your body tells you
- Why you need to pay attention if you ask spirit for help
- Learning how to listen and receive
- A 21 day free-writing exercise that always works!
- Why she’s always willing to be amazed by her life
- And so much more!
