Sacred Leadership Certification Program

Welcome to the Sacred Leadership Program

We know that when we bring many minds together, our brilliance and potential become much greater than the sum of its parts. Imagine what could be possible in a circle of committed minds, and hearts, as well as consciously calling in guidance and support from ascended guides and masters.

This certification program is not a training to be a leader. This program is a call to those who are choosing to step into leadership as an entrepreneur, a parent, a community member . . .

Taking a stand for what you feel is right can be hard, but in the rich and sacred container that we create together both in our ceremonies and beyond, you will be seen and held in your rawness and vulnerability, and your brilliance and gifts will be spotlighted, nourished and activated.

Our community and sacred ceremonies are the place to mastermind your life with the heart, with the guidance of the Holy, with help from our sacred Medicine allies, and with the sacred mirrors of our supportive community.

Alone, truly having the courage to step up into our Noble Purpose can feel overwhelming or even impossible, but when we weave our prayers, resources, and intentions together, we become a powerful net of stars and we become exponentially stronger.

We are coming together to birth the new paradigm of leadership in the world and to model how it CAN be: honoring all humans as equal, honoring all life as sacred, living sustainability, respecting cultural diversity, and being in conscious relationship with all that is greater than us that wishes us well so that we can expand beyond our limited thinking and co-create a New Earth that can thrive in peace and harmony.

Foundational Beliefs

1. We are all perfect and Divine. There is nothing imperfect about any person or any circumstance. Our aim is to accept and dance with the perfection of what IS.

2. The wounding and “shadow” we carry with us is a precious teacher that holds pearls of wisdom and, very likely, the keys to our Divine Purpose in this life time. Our goal is to understand, embrace and allow this wounding to guide us and, therefore, manifest mutual transformation from the small, limited “wounded” ego-self into the fully actualized Light Being*Star Seed*Wisdom Keeper we know ourselves to be.

3. We hold inside of us all the wisdom we need to follow our Divine Path and answer our Soul’s calling in this lifetime. There are many ways of REMEMBERING * uncovering & illuminating that path. Our mission is to share the practices we have found to be most helpful & honor that each individual can and will make a fully embraced decision for herself as to her path of full actualization.

4. Every feeling, thought, story and idea we have is a reflection of our personal experience, which we have the power to change, especially with the support of sacred witnesses. While these are very real, we recognize that this may not be anyone else’s truth. As a sacred circle of witnesses, we choose to let go of “right/wrong” thinking and simply allow our true reflections and the reflections from the circle to help us see ourselves more clearly. Everything is information and there is no hierarchy of truth. Each member of the circle gets to decide what she will do with these reflections.

5. There is no agenda of growth held for any individual. Each member of the Living Wisdom School chooses her own path, pace and participation level to serve her highest good. While we believe it important to invite movement into the uncomfortable and unfamiliar, we respect the boundaries and limitations each participant holds for herself.

6. We, as humans, are never done growing, and there is no such thing as absolute knowledge in human form. Divine Wisdom is ever expanding and requires the human mind to continue to let go, open and expand as well. Therefore, the LIVING aspect of the Living Wisdom School requires constant change. We are here to invite expansion, for each other, in ways that may be uncomfortable, but must be safe and respectful. As participants, we recognize we will likely feel uncomfortable feelings, and it is our self-authorized responsibility to decide whether to push beyond the comfort, or whether we need to keep ourselves safe. These decisions will always be honored with deep respect and compassion.

7. Competition is destructive. Cooperation is life-giving. We choose to see where we are being triggered into competitive, comparing, jealous, judgmental thinking and give ourselves permission to acknowledge these feelings and seek help to learn and grow through them.

8. Being human, vulnerable, “imperfect,” and fallible is not only accepted, it is embraced and is the starting point for all growth into something bigger & better. We, as sacred witnesses, choose to value and honor these qualities in our sisters and celebrate when an individual can accept and love herself for ALL parts she carries in her being.

9. We choose not to “fix” or “heal” our sisters. We recognize that our SELF is our primary responsibility in this lifetime and frequently, the desire to step out of that responsibility to “help” someone else can be a form of abandonment. We choose, in the Living Wisdom School, to continue to stay focused on our own personal growth & healing and offer support outside of ourselves only as it is called upon.

10. We recognize that advice, medicine, instruction and any other form of external supplement to our own process must be received with personal authority and discernment. We choose for ourselves what we take in and what we do not. No matter what is being offered or participated in, we honor our own inner knowing FIRST.

11. We recognize that transformation does not stay compartmentalized and that this experience is likely to change EVERYTHING. Dissolution of that which no longer serves will be accelerated. We acknowledge that we do not have control over that which dissolves and that which remains. We choose to stay committed to the circle and to ourselves so that we have continuous support and recognize that our reliable participation is essential for a strong and safe container.

12. ALL beliefs are honored. All practices and actions that honor the foundations of this Living Wisdom School will be embraced and treated without prejudice. As we bump up against old wounds and limiting thought-forms that are uncomfortable with new ways which honor the life, happiness & authentic self-authority and well-being of all, we choose acceptance OVER exclusion and dedicate ourselves to finding understanding, mutual love and appreciation.

13. We recognize that while there may be facilitators, teachers and guides, no person is more valuable than anyone else. While we give respect to our teachers, we recognize that all humans are limited and rely on their fellow humans for growth. WE ARE ALL A NECESSARY AND EQUAL PART of the experience, though the roles we play will be different.

14. Honoring the Earth & all living things, we strive not only for sustainability, but to give back to the elements which create life. We seek cooperation & support in refining our methods towards a more deeply reciprocal nature with all life.

The Living Wisdom School

The Living Wisdom School was founded in 2012 when Amanda Elo'Esh was called to let go of teaching a template of the Sacred Feminine and to channel the thirteen different frequencies of the Sacred Feminine directly. She was invited to bring her school to a community retreat space in the East Oakland Hills that would soon be named the "Center for Living Wisdom." Since the first ceremony, Amanda has created sacred containers for the Goddess to come and offer direct wisdom teachings, healing and renewal. Amanda Elo'Esh is a channel for the Sacred Feminine face of the Divine, and her goal is to empower her community to access their own highest wisdom and guidance from Source. Amanda does this through monthly women's ceremonies that tune into different archetypes of the feminine face of Creation.

Mission Statement

We are building the world's most heart-centered sacred community for spiritually connected women and extraordinary men who want to create a purpose-driven life of success through spiritual awakening, spiritual success mentoring, and sacred sound and medicine ceremonies.

"I was a part of the Living Wisdom School in 2013 and 2014.  I found that being in this process with Amanda and the amazing circle of women she attracts to her school allowed me to deepen into my authentic truth and freedom. This journey provided me with a powerful container to find clarity and direction for a new phase in my life. If you want to find more clarity and purpose, I highly recommend Amanda and the Living Wisdom School to support your journey.”

“I loved working with Amanda and her Wisdom School community. I loved the entire process of each circle that she holds. From the moment you walk in the door you are transported into a magical realm of femininity. It’s an all senses experience: taste, touch, smell, sight, and auditory. Amanda knows how to create an experience a beautiful experience that transports her clients into an altered state that is both real, dropped in but other worldly. Attending Amanda’s Living Wisdom School has brought me new friends and has begun to help me heal my riff with the feminine. I would highly recommend working with Amanda if you are wanting to experience your femininity in it’s full spectrum.”

“I had the pleasure of participating in the Living Wisdom School from 2014 until 2016. Being a part of this community of women has greatly deepened my relationship to my own Spirit and Creator. My path has become more clear and is lined with integrity, service, and purpose. If you value the freedom of self liberation in conjunction with the loving support of like minded woman then I highly recommend that you jump at the opportunity to take part in this very powerful circle.”
