Korelia Yellowfeather
Second Degree High Priestess
Teacher & Elder

I’ve been exploring my spirituality since I was young. Actively through various Christian paths as well as studying about other organized paths.

 

In the late 80’s I started exploring earth-based religions through the Earth Medicine Circle, a Calgary group that celebrated the Sabbats, with public ritual. It went through many changes before finally winding down. My learning and personal practice at that time were through teachers that had studied with various Indigenous elders.

 

I was then involved with Sacred Space Theatre doing large-scale ritual and participatory theatre. That part of my journey helped to develop my love of ritual and a skill set that I rely on to this day.

 

I am currently a Second Degree Elder in the Evergreen Tradition and am working on my Third Degree. My passion for ritual is shared by teaching in Evergreen’s Ritual Leadership workshop series and mentoring our members who want to learn more. I am currently doing research on the relationship between the God and Goddess in Wiccan practice
