My name is Frances and I am the creatrix and principal therapist of the Isian Centre of Metaphysics, a sacred space which encases all that I do (and more). Pronounced “eye-see-an”, and named after the ancient Egyptian Goddess Isis (or Aset) who was known for her powers of healing and magic, the Isian Centre of Metaphysics is located only 20 minutes north of Adelaide’s CBD, in Parafield Gardens.
I have been exploring the concept and importance of the mind-body-spirit connection for over 30 years, and as such, hold a Bachelor Degree in Metaphysical Science, certificates in a number of energetic healing modalities (including Reiki, Seichim and Pellowah) as well as being a certified hypnotherapist, Death Walker (End of Life Doula – someone who assists the dying and their families through the end of life transition), and a practitioner of past life regressions. Further, I am an accomplished tarot card reader with over 20 years experience and Level I yoga teacher. All this (and more) do I bring to the Isian Centre of Metaphysics so that it becomes a central focal point in offering services to assist people to (re)enhance their own lives.
Working with sacred symbolism, and drawing inspiration from earth-centric spiritual practices, I further enjoy creating sacred ritual that not only mark various Rites of Passage throughout one’s life, but also ceremonies that create connection with the Divine as well as creating a positive space in which to reside.
I hold regular meditation circles and psychic development courses throughout the year, have contributed essays to over 40 publications and am the author of various books. I also run workshops on metaphysical concepts, soul-deep mythological journeying, and self-empowerment through the spinning of magick and utilising earth-centric spirituality.
There is a Zen proverb that advises:
“Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water;
after enlightenment, chop wood, carry water.”
In other words, spiritual development of any sort does not make you exempt from material needs. As such, being fully present in the “here and how”, on this conscious plane whilst striving to gain spiritual evolution of our own soul is vitally important. When we become fully present, we also become fully responsible … and this in itself leads to spiritual evolution of the soul.
With these words in mind, I am in the process of organising a Goddess orientated mini retreat. Embracing the Goddess Within is scheduled to be held on Saturday, 4 April 2020 within Adelaide (venue to be confirmed).
During this one day mini retreat attendees will immerse themselves into the sacred practices and spiritual concepts surrounding the divine feminine. There is an esoteric aphorism that states: “As above so below, as within so without” and which sums up the objective of this day.
All attendees at this mini retreat will go into the draw to win themselves a signed copy of In Her Sacred Names: Writings on the Divine Feminine.
In August 2020 I am delighted to be taking part in the Conscious Connection with Self Women’s Gathering to be held in Queensland.
In October a special Goddess Spiritual Retreat will be taking place on Bali, the “Land of the Gods”. During this six day retreat, you will be immersed into a combination of Balinese spiritual practices as well as Western metaphysical concepts that are specifically designed to (re)connect your mind, body and soul back to the divine source (however this appears to you).
An appropriate suitable venue is currently being source from which to hold the first Encountering the Dark Goddess overnight retreat with online versions of a course to be available later in the year.If you are interested in the Goddess, the divine feminine, then I hope you will be able to join me at some of these events.
