Priestess Mission Statement:

Priestess Ariel is a being of joy - one who radiates, shines, shimmers, and 

sparkles her light out onto the universe in focused hope of personal and 

collective liberation. Her dream vision that she is daily mani-wombifesting is a 

world of expansive gender where out beyond the ideas of binary we receive the 

gifts of full human potential. As a grounded and rooted wanderer and adventurer 

she travels the globe working for economic, environmental, and racial justice, 

gender and sexual liberation, and is always at home. She embodies the spirit of 

being true to who you are, of loving yourself completely, of creating happiness for 

herself and others, of being connected to her body that bleeds and of honoring 

this blood and Priestessing others to do the same. She is an Orier - a carrier and 

shiner of light. She is an archer with her arrow pointed, the bow pulled back, and 

she is flying glitter shooting out everywhere rainbows of justice, love, light, and 

joy. She is a deep listener, transformer, radical lover of life, spontaneous, playful, 

imaginative, creative, faerie, connected connector, writer, performer, dancer, 

educator, activist, artist, edge species, queer fabulous, gender liberation 

movement leader, facilitator creating spaces for people to show up as their full 

self and explore all they are, ritual leader, one who states her desires, fiercely 

vulnerable, and one who brings magic to the mundane. Ariel is a Dream 

Prophetess and interpreter. She is a lovelutionary who fully believes that her 

work and journey is in thanks to her ancestors, the earth, and Goddess. She is a 

child of the Universe and deeply connected to earth and land and gives thanks to 

this land that holds Kohenet that held her Grandmother and holds her mother, 

father, sister, Kohenet sisters, lovers, and her. She gives gratitude to the plants, 

animals, and especially the trees.
