Priestess Dea is an Ancient Historian specializing in Religious, Occult and Folklore studies. She is our Co-Founder, High Priestess of Aset and Devotee to Sekhmet.
Dea is a citizen of Gaia, having lived in Eastern Europe, Egypt, Spain, South Africa and traveled the world before calling the UK her home.
Coming from a long line of medicine women, sacred healing practitioners and priestesses, she was fortunate enough to grow up amongst inspiring, strong women who held space for her to grow spiritually. She is devoted to the study of natural medicine, Archaeology, Egyptology, and Occultism.
She started her priestess journey somewhat by faith moving to Egypt in 2009. Her experience of the Goddess in Egypt during her ordination is still, to this day, vividly alive providing her with the inspiration and devotion to continue walking the path, creating, transforming and serving with her guidance.
Since then, she has devoted her life to studying the ancient wisdom in service to the divine presence of what some might call divine feminine presence or All Goddess. Dea has a deep connection to the feline magic called “sekhem” and made many pilgrimages to sacred sites to deepen and integrate this practice when she is not guiding initiates on the priestess path, she practices Egyptian mystics in her coven “House of the Blue Lotus”.
She has received advanced training as a Temple Priestess and has taught ancient devotional art forms for the past 4 years.
In 2014, She received the vision of a Sacred Temple Space from her Matron Goddess and guide Aset (Isis) as a seer and channel for the divine, she now helps other women develop a deeper connection with Isis, Sekhmet, Bastet, Hathor through the Temple Arts, and practice of both “Heka” and “Sekhem”.
After many years of votive work dedicated to Sekhmet and the African Panthera Lions and their protection in the Kruger national park area. Dea was given the title Lion Priestess in 2015.
Dea is a Creatrix of the Temple’s most enrolled Priestess Apprenticeship Training Course, as well as a translator of the manuscripts the training course is based on. Her expertise is in ancient Egyptian, Latin, and occult text translation. She is a spiritual mother and a guide to many.
Dea is an experienced herbalist, medicine women specializing enchantments, glamour and blood magick.
Holding space for women and young girls in regular circles over the past few years has led her to understand the need for an inclusive Sacred Temple space with free accessible education, healing and support: a place for real sovereign unity, with the recognition to individual courage and the presence of feminine power in each of us.
At the Temple of Sacred Arts, she wishes to hold a kind of space that is respectful toward ancient principles but also accommodates the rapidly changing understanding of mystery teachings in our society. In this sanctified space, She holds our vision of restoring the Divine Feminine to her rightful place in our hearts and in our society. She provides a pillar of balance in our dualistic world.

From My Students:
“I am quite convinced I was the worst student Dea has ever had, late for my sessions, lacking focus, couldn’t stay still, last-minute homework… But she never, not once, gave up on me. Not then and not ever since. I have been a trained Priestess for the Past 4 years and finally dedicated in 2018. And I love this life and honor my path every single day in every single sacred act. I am able to serve the goddess and look after my family in perfect abundance, at the same time I have grown from the ungrounded often scatty women, to a respected Priestess in my community, whilst walking with both feet firmly in this world. I have worked hard, but without the initial faith from Dea I would most certainly not be where I am today. Thank You “
“I loved working with Dea and learning about the ancient ways, she works around your schedule and guides you through the steps in your own time which were very important for me, I am going to apply to the upcoming priestess training also.”
Priestess Dea has such emotional depth, has such a caring, sensitive understanding of nature, our planet, a beautiful soul to inspire others. Complete Joy to be with, An Earth Angel.
