Ha! Fooled you!. Coven of the Mother Mountain Aerie does not have a High Priestess. We take turns as priestess-teams in facilitating our seasonal celebrations. Although some of us have favorite seasons, or a particular priestess-team is well suited for facilitating a particular celebration, we try to challenge ourselves by alternating priestess-partners and seasons. By doing so, every ritual has a different flavor, sometimes familiar, sometimes exotic, sometimes spicy or bland, but hopefully, always with substance and satisfaction.
And the Priestesses Are:
Barbie Dream Weaver
Barbie is a new age agnostic who believes that the divine can be found anywhere she looks. She enjoys expressing her goddess through music composition, art, energy channeling, and lascivious observations, and has a penchance for the tarot, herb gardening, computers, figuring out what makes people tick, and dreaming. Barbie earns her living as a chemist and considers herself a total and irrefutable science geek. One of the founding priestesses of COMMA, Barbie is also the coven webweaver. Contact Barbie.
