Sacred Oil Alchemy

The Path of the Myrrhophore

A Facilitator's Certification Program

with Trista Haggerty
June 8-11, 2023


The women of the Myrrhophore tradition were also known as the Scent Priestesses.  They were women who worked with nature's aroma, experienced as the manifestation of the Divine.  They understood the power of scent through working with precious oils as they served as midwives to the soul, both leaving this world and entering.  They were the gatekeepers of life's most awesome and sacred threshold moments.

The Sacred Oil Alchemy training program welcomes you into the temple of the Myrrhophore during one of the more fragrant times of the year here at Hawk Circle, when spring flowers are in full bloom and their scent is intoxicating. 


You'll be guided through the ancient traditions that were held by women and passed from one generation to another, only through oral teachings.

Healing Trauma, Negative Patterns & Soul Midwifery

As we approach the higher frequencies of the New Earth, we are realizing more than ever the patterns and conditions that have kept us in a life of struggle, or at the very least, a life lived far from reaching our potential.  

Trauma and negative messaging that has become so deeply entrenched in our bodies can be very hard to unravel and dismantle.  This is where the oils work their magic.  With their power, and becoming our own soul midwife, we can free both ourselves and our clients from the trauma and patterns that keep us in repeated struggle.  

During this training, you will step into the role of a soul midwife and learn to assist both yourself and others how to unburden the soul during life and on the threshold of death.  This work comes from a very ancient tradition, rooted in the wisdom of the ancient Egyptians and Babylonians, and yet, so needed for our current times.


Your Meals

Fresh Salad

Your meals will be specially prepared for you to support your time of rest and healing.  Green smoothies, organic fruits and vegetables, fresh herbs, and healthy grains will be prepared for you each day.​

Food is powerful medicine and during your personal retreat, both your body and soul will be nourished.

You'll have the opportunity to let us know about any special dietary requirements at the time of registration.

What to Bring

Comfortable clothes, weather appropriate.  Yoga wear, layers for varying weather, hiking boots or sneakers, rain coat, sandals, journal and pen, toiletries, sun hat, water bottle and sunscreen.


Where will I sleep?

We have several cabins in close proximity to Eagle House where we'll be meeting each day.  The cabins are charming and newly renovated. Our bathrooms and showers are in Eagle House, just a few steps away. 


Down a wooded trail, is a fountain of fresh spring water that comes from the many springs on our hill.  This is sacred water.  It's vibrancy and freshness is palpable and you can fill your pitcher throughout the day.

You will either have a cabin to yourself, or share with one other person, depending on how many sign-up for this course.
