  • Who were the Song Priestesses?
March 13, 2024

The history of song priestesses stretches back through the annals of time, weaving a tapestry of cultural significance and spiritual resonance.

The Pythian Priestesses who tended the Oracle at Delphi, in ancient Greece, were known to chant creating altered states of consciousness through sound. The Celtic Bandorai, also known as Banduri or female Druids, held a sacred role in fostering harmony and connection within their communities through rites of passage, which always included drumming and music.

In ancient India, women served as temple singers, known as “devadasis,” and were trained in music, dance, and the recitation of sacred texts. Their performances were considered acts of worship, and the Devadasis played a crucial role in religious and cultural life.

In indigenous cultures around the world, women often held esteemed positions as shamans and spiritual leaders, guiding their communities in matters of healing, divination, and connection to the natural world. These women possessed intimate knowledge of herbal medicine, sacred rituals that included musical instruments, and communication with the spiritual realms.

Throughout history, we see the role of the temple musician, the Bard, the singer of the sacred, was integral to the spiritual and cultural fabric of their society.

Song priestesses were not only skilled musicians but also revered for their wisdom, intuition, and healing abilities. Their voices carried the echoes of ancestral knowledge, offering solace, guidance, and inspiration to those in need.

Over the last few thousand years, women have been stripped of our right to speak, sing, and lead. Our gifts were dismissed, then appropriated. Our sacred functions within the community were perverted and made profane. Women’s voices, and wisdom, were lost.

Before patriarchy, women held the sacred role of the Song Priestess. It is part of our spiritual heritage, and our birthright to answer this calling.

THE SONG PRIESTESS OF TODAY

As guardians of ancient traditions and custodians of sacred songs, the modern day Song Priestess continues their legacy of bringing harmony, healing, and spiritual insight to their communities.

A Song Priestess serves as a conduit between humanity and the divine, channeling the power of music to elevate ceremonies, rituals, and communal gatherings. 

A Song Priestess knows how to use sacred sound to create spaces for deep relaxation, emotional release, and transmit healing frequencies through song or Light language.
