Divine Mary Speaks
reward item
$2
per month
A monthly sharing of Divine Mary Speaks.  This tier has been 'upgraded' to sharing a channelling received from Mary once a month.  Receiving messages from Mary has been my personal spiritual practise for 12 years and all my offerings are based on these messages.  All patrons will be given special discounts and special offers as these decks are completed and become ready for sale. I will share with you a monthly sharing of the image of a shrine, or work in progress, or a poem or collage card created by myself as sacred altar in devotion to Maria, Mary, Maryam, Madonna Nera, prophetess, healer and divine Holy Woman.
blessings, Hettienne

They are all shared here monthly. This retreat takes place on my blog The Hearth of Mary (http://bookofmarysacredheart.blogspot.com).
I will add a new meditation once a month.

The Veil of the Black Madonna
reward item
$8
per month
The creating of the Mysteries of the Black Madonna tarot deck is in its final stages.  As i connect deeper and deeper with Her image, story and symbolism, i am deeply changed on a cellular level.  i had a dream in which She asked me to share a mystical message with each shrine/card with you, a veil it is called.  As you meditate on the image of the shrine-card and on the words that She has given me and others, you will enter through a gateless gate and access the Wisdom for yourself.

One exclusive post and image of a shrine-card from the Black Madonna deck.  AND all contents of the Black Madonna Tarot Deck and Virtual Gallery

The Order of the Dove 1 and 2 are identical tiers
An ongoing spiritual journey providing practises, meditations, prayers, and reading devoted to Blessed Mary in the tradition the Mysteries of Mary and the Alchemical Black Madonna.  The Order of the Dove is the home of the Hearthkeepers of the Hearth of Mary.  I founded the Temple of Mary in 2010 in South Africa.  Locally I offer in-person retreats, initiations and shaktypat.  After the completion of the Mysteries of Mary tarot deck I felt called to offer the non-religious spiritual path of Mary to a wider audience. Patreon makes that possible. In this tier you will be guided into self-initiations and crafting your own path.  I am no longer acting as a guru; I am merely sharing my personal path crafted from 25 years of training and living as a healer and visionary wit you. You will receive a monthly post, either written or in video format, or both with essays, illuminations and practises from my own ever-deepening relationship with Self and Mary.  I will be available to answer questions, give feedback and guide you through the practises and the unfolding of the sacred energy in your own life and psyche.
I will apply my training as a Shaktypat guru in sharing dikshas (energy initiations and blessings) and eventually each person will receive shaktypat on an agreed time.  You will receive your own personal mantra to work with. We will have group meditations (in our own space, connected energetically) at appointed times once a month.  After completion of two initiations you will receive a spiritual name in the tradition of the Temple of Mary. You are encouraged to take up the title of Hearthkeeper of the Temple of Mary as well as using your spiritual name.

About

Welcome to the Temple of Mary, a sacred space in the spiritual realm, created through devotional practise and ceremonial journeying.

We are forged and fired in the crucible of the heart and art gives life and meaning to our stories.

My prayer is that I share the right medicine for you and that my words will create a sacred altar reflecting the beauty, truth, wisdom and justice which is potent and potential in our world. It is your choice how deep you want to journey with Holy Mary.  I offer inspiration through art and altar; sacred pilgrimage, shamanic journeying, ceremonial and devotional practises and initiations into the Hearth of the Temple of Mary as Flamekeepers after having received a spiritual name.

The ancient tradition of creating sacred altars used to belong to the Great Mother and her devotees and it was incorporated into religion by the nuns and convents. I call it Sacred Altars and it is my offering on the Altar of Life. Twenty years ago I became a pilgrim to sacred places on the Earth and especially to where the Divine has stepped through the veil to reach us and where Mary had appeared to others. I bring waters from the holy springs and rivers; I bring back oil and salts sanctified by the Presence of the energies at these sacred places. Through the years I have shared all of my pilgrimages with my blog readers and eventually I opened a shop . I bring back my own direct experiences and my own transformation and make sacred altars which I share with others through my shop The French Madonna on my website at www.hergracesacredart.com

In 2001 I undertook my first pilgrimage to the grotto of Archangel Michael in Mont Sant'Angelo in Italy and participated in the week long festival in honour of the Saint.  In 2002 I founded a wisdom school Freedom through Love and a spiritual healing training centre The Shekinah Healing. In 2007 I organised the International Goddess Conference in Franschoek, South Africa.  In 2008 i was initiated into the Siddha tradition as a shaktypat giver  and  guru and after an intense three years i became a devotee to Anandamayi.  I received my spiritual name Sri Bhaktymayi Ma and in 2010 I visited the sacred spring of Lourdes and my devotion to Blessed Mary became more formal as I accepted the name of Hettienne Bhaktymayi Maria Ma. In 2012 I founded the Temple of Mary with 12 flamekeepers, with annual initiations and retreats. For years I led healing circles, created sacred drama, led sacred dance workshops and circles and my work with women groups was featured twice on the SABC (South African Broadcast Company) program Free Spirit. I wrote a monthly column on Tarot for the national magazine Namaste and offered tarot workshops. These spiritual and creative practises led to the creation of The Mysteries of Mary tarot deck, published two years ago. Currently I am working on the Mysteries of the Black Madonna deck and book as well as the Walking with Mary Oracle.

I create from the eye of the heart, rather than the eye of the mind and hope to illuminate and show the underlying image and Divine Presence in the vignette of our personal stories.
