Dove Mountain Elemental Temples, North Carolina
April 23 - 29, 2024
Experience the unveiling...
Isis is the supreme mistress of magic. Because of her, each spring the flowers bloom, new creatures are born, and the world is made fertile and bountiful once again. Isis’ voluptuous heart embraces all living things as her children. From the tiniest creature to the tallest mountain top, the deepest ocean to the lushness of the Amazonian forest, everything moves in a continuous spiral path of birth, death, and rebirth. Isis is devoted to unconditional, everlasting love. All acts in her name and spirit are life giving and support the continuation of life as we know it here on Earth.
At the changing of the seasons into springtime 2024, Isis will be revealed on top of Dove Mountain at her own sacred elemental temple. Presently, Isis is veiled as she awaits her throne to be erected above the water temple, the last elemental temple that was a part of the original vision over a decade ago!
The condensed version of a very big vision, is the creation story of how Venus Rising's Elemental Temples came to be born. It was sometime in 2008 that Star Wolf embarked on a Shamanic Breathwork journey.
It was in this journey where she saw the whole world burning; plagued and suffering. Star Wolf became the Egyptian goddess, Sekhmet, and laid ruin to the world that was responsible for such devastation of the planet. Wild with blood lust and fury, Star Wolf (as Sekhmet), was raised up by Isis, as a hissing lioness held within the fingers of the great Egyptian goddess and mother to all things, Isis.
Isis shared her vision with me and spoke the following words that burned themselves into my heart, mind and soul… “Build the elemental temples, and they will come!”
When Star Wolf asked, "what temples and who will come…," she was given a powerful vision and command to create the Elemental Temples that honored the sacred elements of water, earth, fire, and air. When Star Wolf asked who will come, she was told that people who have pure hearts, minds, and spirits would magically show up and be supportive as Star Wolf stayed true to the heart of the vision she had been given.
There have been many twists and turns, light and shadow, on this journey of 16 years, and finally, the Elemental Temples will be completed!
We will unveil a beautiful statue of Isis which will be located above the Healing Waters Temple (VR's waterfall) and will complete Star Wolf's soul agreement given to her in her SBW Vision from Isis.
We will host 20 shamanic souls who feel called to undergo a shamanic death and rebirth March 21-27 as Isis is revealed and activated within our hearts.
If you feel called to join us now is the time to commit to take the journey that awaits us.
