SOA Intensives and Goddess Immersions

The Sisterhood of Avalon (SOA) has been presenting our powerful, immersive Avalonian Training Intensives in North America and Great Britain since 1998. Presented by SOA founder and Morgen, Jhenah Telyndru, these four-day residential Intensives provide women with the opportunity to learn Avalonian ritual, techniques, tools, and philosophy in an experiential and supportive environment. Come to connect with the Goddesses of Avalon, immerse yourself in the transformational spiritual traditions of the Celtic Britons, and learn how to heal and empower yourself as you align with the Cycles of the Universe.

Foundation: Seeking Avalon Within

Seeking Avalon Within is for all women seeking the Ways of Avalon. For newcomers to the Goddess Path, it is an excellent starting point; for women who have been engaged in this journeying, it is sure to deepen connections both with the Lady and with the self, from an empowering Avalonian perspective. Seeking Avalon Within presents the foundation work needed for all of the SOA’s Intensive offerings, and is open to all women, members and non-members alike.

The Realm of Land

Journey through the archetypal landscapes of the Realm of Land — the physical plane where the majority of our conscious experiences occur. This is the Realm of manifestation and the dwelling place of plants, animals, elementals and entities connected to the land. This intensive opens the inner pathways to a holistic and uniquely Avalonian Healing System and begins our exploration of the Lunar Mysteries of the Avalonian Tradition. Members of the SOA who have attended Seeking Avalon Within (or Calling the Barge) are welcome to attend.

The Realm of Sea

Journey through the archetypal landscapes of the Realm of Sea, the dwelling place of the Ancestors, the Underworld to which souls return before again seeking manifestation; the maternal waters of birth and rebirth and sacred Cauldron of the Goddess. The Realm of Sea Intensive is a deepening of our immersion into the Avalonian Mysteries and the wisdoms of Celtic British Spirituality. Members of the SOA who have attended the Seeking Avalon Within Intensive are welcome to attend.

The Realm of Sky

Journey through the archetypal landscapes of the Realm of Sky, the abode of the Divine; the final destination of souls who have completed the cycle of bound and rebound, rejoining the All once more. This intensive builds upon The Realm of Land and The Realm of Sea, bringing together tools and techniques to assist in personal exploration of the Avalonian Tradition, while also learning to serve the Holy Isle and its Sisters as a facilitator of the path for others. Members of the SOA who have attended The Realm of Land Intensive and The Realm of Sea Intensive are welcome to attend.


The Sisterhood of Avalon is pleased to present our newest in-person offering — a series of Goddess Immersion Retreat experiences, open to all women. This first immersion will focus on the Goddess Rhiannon, the Divine Queen of the Celtic Britons.

Avalonian Goddess Immersion: Rhiannon

Gathering in honor of the Divine Queen Rhiannon, we will remember her mythic and historic legacy, reclaim the power inherent in her role as a sovereignty Goddess, and renew our connections to the transformational lessons she holds for us. Through ritual, deep journey work, sacred drama, music and song, creative expression, and oracular mysteries, we will work to forge a profound and lasting relationship with our beloved Rhiannon.
