These woman are called to consciously tend the waters of life

in their bodies and the world at holy springs, wells, rivers, lakes, oceans

Let her bathe you in the Mysteries of Love

This Mysterium is an alchemical container to dive into the mysteries of the water and divine feminine. To surrender. To flow. To release. To have faith. To purify. To restore. To love.

Curriculum Overview

This is a one of a kind journey.

It is what I wish I’d had been able to learn in one place about the water priestess arts & divine feminine embodiment. You’re receiving what took me 8 years of work, travel, study, and investment distilled into a 6 month journey.

It is a deep dive into the rites of passage that we move through physically as women and how water moves through each of these gateways.

There is such power in group containers. We will be doing rituals not only for ourselves, but for the planet.

The teacher for this course is the Water itself.

Alchemy requires a container, substance to be transformed, and energy to drive the transformation.

This mystery school is the chalice. It is the sacred container.

Your experience of life is the substance to be transformed.

The energy to initiate the transformation is your connection to the water.

“Allow the waves of water to woo you into this enchanting Water Priestess Mystery School, you won’t regret it! It embodies such a deep, rich, ancient vibe while being fully modern in its online setting. Dakota is an absolute wealth of wise woman knowledge, intertwined with a light and loving presence that makes learning from her a breeze. I left every class feeling inspired, honored and nourished. So glad I followed my heart’s call to join!

It brought out my internal awareness to how much of a Water Priestess I already am. It opened my eyes to actions and feelings I had embodied my whole life, and gave me direction on how to truly nurture the strong desire to support my community and the waters of the world.

I have made so many deep friendships with women all over the world. The commonality and convergence of feminine presence was one of my favorite bonuses of the school. Dakota not only allows for student shares in class, she actually encourages and holds space for them! I was amazed with what I learned not only from the instructor, but from my classmates as well.

From meditations, special speakers, beautifully thought out lessons and enriching assignments, how-tos, and a beautiful online portal space to contain it all – I was never without information in between classes. Such a knowledge filled experience I will never ever forget.”


“When I found out about Dakota and her amazing work, I started crying with happiness. Deeply touched by the message she shares with the world. I was sooo happy that I could be a part of her Water Priestess Mystery School. In these 6 months, we dove deep, and I can freely say that my life changed. I am more aware, more in my body, more in love with everything around me, and quality of my life and my work changed.”


“The Water Priestess Mystery School that Dakota facilitates is truly a genuine immersive experience. This course is more of a sacred journey with the water. Dakota demonstrates her deep connection to the Priestess arts and teaches from a place of divine mission work. The course itself is very well rounded in the sense of its ability to fulfill every curiosity I had with tangible scientific evidence of the magic and powers of water to the deeply profound esoteric nature of water herself. 

Throughout this journey, I found my way home to a deep part of my soul that I had felt disconnected from for a long time. I am so grateful and honored for my experience and will always refer to the course material to deepen my understanding and connection to the Water Priestess Arts. I would recommend this course for any sister that wants to deepen their connection to source, the water and their true essence as a human being. The knowledge is always inside of us, it is simply a deep remembering of our True nature…Dakota taught me this and I am so grateful.”


“Going through this journey with Dakota has been such an honor. The knowledge and learning she provides within this container is amazing. She is a true water priestess and her knowledge knows no end. I would highly recommend her to anybody wanting to work with her”


“I want to thank you for the beautiful mysterium and your precious presence. Wow, did magic and transformation happen!”


Tori Feldman, Ancestral Healing Mentor

I am forever grateful for the mermaid codes that Dakota holds. She is Pure Love, Source Consciousness.

I have had such a deeply nourishing soul expanding heart enchanting 6 month water journey with her.

She teaches the water mysteries with such grace and passion activating the crystalline water in your body and assisting you to remember your divine inheritance.

Her water wisdom is truly Magic and has really assisted me in melting into deeper layers of my own water wisdom.This experience has been so deeply transformational and has fed my soul in the most nourishing ways.

I just want to redo it over and over again.

This journey will forever be encoded in my heart and will definitely add so much magic to the work that I share as a Water Priestess. I am eternally grateful.


I had little understanding of the Pre-eminent and Redemptive Grace of our Cosmic waters before I enrolled in the Water Priestess Mystery School. I feel so honored and blessed to have answered the call and to have been initiated into these teachings. Dakota embodies the essence of our Mother Waters. She is joyous and playful and loves with a tender yet fierce, generous capacity that gently flows towards all her initiates.

Her extraordinary wisdom reaches beyond her years, she is loving and giving, always offering beyond the Curriculum to extend her support to our journey into the Gnosis of Water.  Her reverence to our Mother waters is an Art-form that she curates and refines continually like the ebb and flow of our Seas. Like the Ocean she has her own curative, healing life-force.

The Water Priestess Mystery School is a grand commission that has changed my life on every level. For those who hear the whispers of our waters. I urge you to set sail on this voyage with Dakota.

Hope, faith and love depend on it.”


The energy created by this group was divine.  Felt truly blessed to be guided by our beautiful Water Priestess Dakota on this spiritual journey. I felt so loved.

I loved how it flowed, each month had a theme and we learned so much about ourselves and our relationship to water.  Each theme touched very important aspects of our developmental growth as humans and as women.  We learned many sacred ways to honor water and the waters within ourselves, by doing ceremonies and rituals, and how to live in harmony with water.


“Dakota is an authentic teacher, leader and guide. The Water Priestess Mystery School is an ocean of knowledge that brings you to the depths of your soul in (re)discovering your sacred femine. Dakota has a unique ability to create a beautiful and safe container in which to learn, share and explore, and she holds space for each woman on her unique journey.
I loved the format of the course where knowledge was transmitted orally, the way of our ancestors, in a clear and concise fashion. We then had opportunities to dive deeper on our personal journeys via the course portal with quality video, audio and reading content to supplement our learning. The structure of the course covers a wide range of topics, practices and knowledge to enhance your own learning and journey but also provides tools and encouragement to bring these practices into your own teaching and communities.
Every woman should have the chance to receive this sacred knowledge and Dakota is a pure channel for the messages that flow through. Thank you for an incredible journey!”

“I felt so called to be part of the Water Priestess Mysterium as I love water and all elements and wanted to deepen into my connection with water.  Dakota offers such a safe, beautiful and mythical space.  Her ethereal nature is delicate and present. I loved exploring as a group how we each connected to water and as a whole. The content of the course is clear and supportive  and brings an invitation to find a practice with water into everyday life. I loved this immersion and will continue to deepen my relationship with water as a pure source.”

About Dakota

Like all the best things in life, being a water priestess found me. I hadn’t known such a thing existed or much about ancient goddess culture. Yet the water called me and forever deepens me to remember the path of life’s divine feminine mysteries. I am an ordained water priestess through AquaMystica Ministry founded by Jumana Sophia (aquamystica.com, hermysteryschool.com). I lived and studied aquatic bodywork & priestess arts with her for 2 years at our water temple home in Ashland, Oregon while attending massage school. From there, the dolphins, doula arts, and lemurian remembrances brought me to the island of Kauai for three years where I was initiated deeper into the magic of the water and mysteries of sacred sexuality. I realized that being a water priestess was so much deeper than I had originally thought, truly a way of life and remembrance spanning many bodies and lifetimes being a priestess of the Divine Mother through many forms including the temples of Isis and way of the Magdalene. I entered into years of sexual healing through celibacy, fasting and raw food. I realized that our bodies are resonating water temples and it is up to us to restore our temples to living crystalline water through diet, thoughts, dance, song, and communing with the water all around us. I then went on a water priestess pilgrimage through Europe to sacred springs along the Magdalene path to pray with the waters and offer water from Kauai. My intention was to unite the waters of crystalline Lumeria with that of the ancient butterfly pathways of old world Europe. From there, I came back to Hawaii and met my beloved who also serves the waters (findaspring.comalivewaters.com).  We have been diving into the magic of sacred union and embodying heaven on earth.

What is a Water Priestess?
In my definition, a water priestess means being in active devotion to and communion with the waters of life and womb of creation. It is the gnosis that water is an elemental representation of the divine mother. The portal through which light & consciousness is able to incarnate into form. The mystical physical source of life, water love. We understand that we are made mostly of the water, this planet is covered mostly in water, and that we can heal ourselves and the planet by cultivating a deeper relationship with this precious substance as expressed within and all around us. A water priestess can be from any religion, any race, any culture. There are water tenders in all ancient cultures. If choosing the ordination path and the title of priestess doesn’t resonate with you, you can choose a word that feels more in alignment with your soul such as water medicine woman, water wisdom keeper, or something similar.

Websters definitions of a Priestess:


: a woman authorized to perform the sacred rites of a religion


: a woman regarded as a leader (as of a movement

My definition of a Water Priestess:

The above definition as pertaining to the water while also

Not being “perfect” or “enlightened” or a “goddess” or a “master”.

But a priestess. In devotion to embodiment.

The same thing being a mermaid means to me.

Being in service to the sea of love.

What is a Mermaid of the Magdalen?
I never resonated with the classic starfish in the hair, Barbie style mermaid, nor the dark fanged, lure sailors to their death version. There was something more mystical and sacred regarding my desire to live under the sea. That the mermaid essence I’m most aligned with in my heart of hearts is a vital part of my own feminine essence expressing itself on the planet at this time in human form.

Our essence (higher self, soul, ext) is always moving through our lives, pointing us toward things that feel aligned with who we are. And we are more than just Human. Our consciousness is currently experiencing itself by identifying with a body, but our consciousness is so much more. I know mermaids, faeries, dragons, phoenixes, elves, and all manner of combination of these things. Some people just don’t seem as human as something else.

In my own personal mythology, I’ve always resonated deeply with the water. I’ve been told by many different intuitives that an aspect of my consciousness seeded and experienced itself as water in the beginning of this planet, that I’m a water naga (dragon), mermaid, and that I’ve lived under the sea. Honestly, I feel more at home under the water. If I could, I would move into a crystalline home on the sea floor and have dolphins and exotic fish as my neighbors.

Back before I looked at my life as a myth and was living in a more shallow version of reality, I would still enter into ecstatic states of consciousness through the water. I remember during the darkest times in my life, around age 15, when I went to the Caribbean and had an experience of complete soul embodiment standing in and staring at the sunlight dancing upon the turquoise waters. It was the most exquisite feeling of peace and precious perfection. Despite what was going on in my life, my essence still managed to shine through all the turmoil I was experiencing and the water acted as a trigger for remembrance. My relationship with the water has blossomed in that I no longer look at it as just a substance, but I see her as the elemental embodiment of the divine feminine.

The water represents deep feminine wisdom, the principals of love, surrender, flow, shape shifting, purification, and trust. She is a being of profound Grace, of artful alchemy. When do I feel most aligned with these things? What gets me feeling all wet and oceanic? Mystical union with God.

My relationship with God (source, creator, ext) has always had a certain texture. A romantic, mystical Rumi quality, a special aliveness felt purest alone, either in my own sacred space or out in nature. This feeling stimulated not by modern belief systems, or current experiences common in this age, but the deeper connection with the fabric of life itself. The wisdom of Love. Not a little love, but the big holy shit this energy is what created the whole universe kind of Love. I’ve come to realize that all of true life is an act of love making. The merging of the father (sun, light, electricity, fire, ext) and the mother (earth, matter, magnetism, water, ext).

As a little girl, I named everything Rose Marie. As I grew older, I realized that the lineage I feel most aligned with on this planet is the Rose line of the Christ/Magdalen energies (rooting in the Isis temples of ancient Egypt). After high school, I started walking the path of the Beloved more consciously.  The book the Magdalen Manuscript served as an essential part of this process.  It would serve as an inspiration and guide for my lifelong journey into the path of relationship alchemy.

So how do Mermaids and the path of the Rose/Magdalen/Isis lineage relate? They both represent the return of the Divine Feminine, specifically the archetype of the Mother. It is an immersion into Love, Grace, and Surrender.

To begin, it’s helpful to note that Mary was a title used for priestesses of woman who considered themselves brides of God, specifically David kings. This makes sense when you consider the virgin Mary and Mary Magdalen. They were both priestesses of Isis.

In Egyptian, the word is derived from Mry “beloved” or Mr “love”. Mer, Merry, Marry, Mary, Marie, Miriam, Meru (indian for yoni, navel, womb, center) are all closely related. Mar in many languages also means Sea. Mary Magdelan was considered a fish goddess. This makes complete sense because the water is the elemental essence of the divine feminine. The Mer aspect of Mermaid means beloved, love, or sea, so what does maid mean? On the surface, maid means servant or in service to. However, another meaning is a virgin. By virgin I do not mean not having had sex. A virgin is an energetic state that feels pristine, innocent, and pure, which are all elements that can be and hopefully are felt when making love.

So what is in the name Mermaid?

A pure woman in service to the sea of love.

I cannot think of a more beautiful mission statement for my life.

We are in the time of the mermaids, the Age of Aquarius and the return of the Divine Feminine. Mermaids represent what we need to return to if we hope to evolve as a species instead of go extinct. They symbolize immersion in the elements, connection with the cosmic womb, deep alignment with the Divine Mother, beauty, grace, love. The same thing that the energies of the Magdalen represent to me.

I am in service to the Sea, to the Divine Feminine, to Love. This is what it means to be a Mermaid of the Magdalen. I dedicate my life to living in alignment with the truths that the water whispers sweetly to my soul.

What is the Lineage of these Teachings?

The water transcends all cultures and religions, however, my soul has had many incarnations from the lineage of Isis and the Mary lines so this mystery school is steeped in the gnosis of Sophia wisdom. However, I deeply honor how the divine mother & water moves beyond form and lenses of perception. The beauty of the water is that it transcends all belief systems. All cultures. She unites us all. We all need water. We are all made of water. Most cultures around the world honor the water as mother and the etomology for water is close to mother in many languages. We will experience different flavors of water wisdom.

This is what I wish I would have had access to in a school when I was beginning my awakening journey into remembering the sacredness of the mermaid medicine.
