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, 6 June 2020 will mark the commencement of a month long online Encountering the Dark Goddess sadhana journey (spiritual exploration) into the deep Shadow Self through connecting with the Dark Goddess in order to initiate healing and commence positive change at the deepest level.
I will also be holding an one day physical retreat later in the year that will also be exploring aspects with of the Dark Goddess and the Shadow Self. More information about both of these events can be found here. To be kept up to date with respect to the pending release of my long awaited book of the same name, please follow me on Instagram or Facebook for updates.
The Conscious Connection with Self Women’s Gathering that I have been invited to take part in will be moved from August to November at this stage due to the impact of the COVID-19 virus (actual date to be confirmed). It will still be held in Queensland.
I was planning special Goddess Spiritual Retreat to take place in October in Bali, the “Land of the Gods”. Due to the unknown factor surrounding international travel, this retreat will be rescheduled until 2021. 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).
If you are interested in the Goddess, the divine feminine, and I hope you will be able to join me at some of these events.
