Wisdom Program
Spiritual Development Course

An immersive 12-month program for women facilitated by Elka, takes place online.

Wisdom Program - Initiation

Wisdom Program:
Women’s Intuitive Spiritual Development Online Mentorship Program

A year-long journey for women who desire to develop their spiritual, transformative, and intuitive capacities.

The current Wisdom Program cohort began January 1, 2018
Registration for the 2019 cohort opens in October of 2018.

Dates below reflect the 2018 cohort and will be updated for 2019.


Over a full turn of seasons, the Wisdom Program offers women several formats and approaches for spiritual development, including

  • a monthly group meeting
  • daily practice
  • weekly homework
  • weekly partnership
  • quarterly mentorship

Over the course of 12 months, we will use the 12 themes of my Seeds of Wisdom oracle as focal points for guidance and growth. During the program, you will expand your intuitive awareness, deepen in your spiritual practice and learn tools for self-care and energetic autonomy. You’ll also open up pathways for expanded creativity and prosperity.


Program Intention

This year-long spiritual journey is an adventure in soul discovery and expression. It is a convergence of energy work, universal principles of transformation, reclamation of the wise and powerful feminine archetype, and community deepening.

Since it’s a spiritual program, we will work often in the subtle realms, sensing the unseen. With intuition as a central methodology, our practices will cultivate our direct perceptions.

We will be creating sacred space, shaping energy, and using “priestessing” skills, not limited to a singular religious affiliation. The Wisdom Program will hold space for women with a range of religious affiliations and will call on us to clarify our core religious beliefs and harness them on behalf of our own personal spiritual development.


    Topics Covered

    • Authenticity — being, radiating and expressing the truth of the self
    • Sacred space — creating containers for meaning, connection and transformation
    • Energy work — grounding, meditation, aura and chakra health, color therapy, physical practices
    • Expressive arts — journaling, collage, free-writing, movement, drawing/painting
    • Wisdom shares — safe space for you to express your talents, skills, excellence and leadership
    • Inner journey work — resolving past tensions, discovering hidden talents, and connecting with spirit support team
    • Building networks — connecting in mutual support with other spiritually-motivated women
    • Earth cycles — learning the subtleties of the seasons and aligning with the solar and lunar rhythms
    • Rites of passage — creating meaningful rituals to mark completions, transitions and stepping into your own power

    Topics will be engaged within the 12 themes of my Seeds of Wisdom: Beauty, Chaos, Creation, Darkness, Gaia, Initiation, Light, Life Force, Mystery, Paradox, Rebirth, and True Self.

    Wisdom Program graduates will receive a certificate of completion. Additionally, while this not an oracle card training per se, because participants will engage deeply with the Seeds of Wisdom themes while developing their intuitive capacities, graduates will be qualified to provide Seeds of Wisdom readings and will receive my blessing to call themselves certified Seeds of Wisdom oracle readers.


    Program Components

    Monthly Meeting
    When: 1 Saturday per month, 10:30am – 12pm Pacific time
    Where: Zoom Video Conference

    Monthly group meetings introduce the theme for each month. We will use a variety of transformative processes to engage the theme including guided visualization, active energy meditation, deep writing, and creative reflection. Participants also get the opportunity to hear from each other and develop active listening and space-holding skills. Our first monthly meeting is January 6, 2018. See the calendar below for all 12 meetings, plus a final completion call. For the sake of privacy, monthly meetings will be recorded only if the entire group agrees to it.

    Daily Practice
    When: 15 minutes every day
    Where: Wherever you are

    Daily practice provides the consistency needed to anchor spiritual development. Think of these 15 minutes as your own private temple or sanctuary in which you connect with the divine in you. Your daily practice will be unique to you — it may take the form of meditation, exercise, a walk in nature, art-making, writing or some other meaningful way you can connect with yourself. The form itself can change, but the intention remains the same: 15 minutes a day every day for a year of sacred time to nourish your soul. Your daily practice begins January 1, 2018. You will be provided with guidance prior to our first group meeting on how to begin your personal daily practice.

    Weekly Homework
    When: Assigned on Sunday, due on Saturday
    Where: Facebook secret group

    Weekly homework keeps you engaged with our monthly theme and accountable to the process. Homework might include reflecting on a piece of writing, creating an altar, spending time in nature, doing a specific spiritual practice or self-care activity, making a challenge for yourself and meeting it, doing a Seeds of Wisdom card reading for a friend, and other relevant (and manageable) activities that help you deepen with the monthly theme and/or with a specific transformative skill. Participants turn in their homework by posting to a secret Facebook group in shareable forms relevant to the assignment itself. For example, if the assignment is to make an altar, then you’d turn in your homework by posting a photo of the altar. First homework will be assigned December 31 and due prior to our first monthly meeting on January 6.

    Weekly Partnership
    When: 10+ minute call per week
    Where: Phone/Skype

    Every week, you and an assigned partner will connect via phone/Skype (or any other real-time voice-to-voice technology you prefer) for a brief conversation. The call should be at least 10 minutes long — enough time for you both to have a quick check-in. (If you and your partner would like to connect for longer, you certainly may, but only if that’s agreeable to you both.) You will partner with the same person for a month and will be assigned a new partner at the start of each month. The primary purposes of the weekly partnership are to maintain a sense of connection between monthly group meetings, to give you a chance to be witnessed in your process, and to give you the opportunity to practice some of the skills you’ll be learning each month. You will be assigned your January partner and expected to connect with her before our first monthly meeting on January 6.

    Quarterly Mentorship
    When: 1 hour call per quarter
    Where: Phone/Skype

    All Wisdom Program participants receive an hour-long mentorship call with Elka every quarter. During our 1-to-1 calls, we may address whatever themes and topics are relevant to your journey. It’s your time to be used in whatever ways advance your soul’s agenda.
