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 on the traditional lands of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains, only 20 minutes north of Adelaide’s CBD, in Parafield Gardens.
My interest in the unfolding mysteries of life has resulted in me exploring the concept of the mind-body-spirit connection for over 30 years through metaphysics, mythology and sacred mysteries. It is through reconnecting with the stories of our ancestors and the land upon which we walk that we begin to understand our connection on a deeper soul level, our place in the cosmos, and why we are here.
A published author, I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Metaphysical Science, qualifications in various 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. In order to know where we are going, we need to understand where we have come from, and open our hearts to the great wisdom shared by those who have come before us.
I am also 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.
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.
I will be taking part in the WitchCon Online 2021 that is billed the “largest online magical conference in the world over the weekend of Friday, 5 to 7 March 2021. I will be representing my talk on Exploring the Shadowy Realms of the Dark Goddess on the Sunday, 7 March 2021 at 11:15am (Adelaide time) in The Saturn Library with LunaNoire Creations products being available in Sunday. Tickets can be purchased here.
If you are interested in gaining inner freedom, then my Journey into Freedom with Kali may be what you are looking for. Commencing on Saturday, 13 March 2021, this 21 day sadhana (spiritual practice) invites you to enter into the sacred temple of the Hindu Dark Mother. Here you will receive daily emails containing sacred myths and practices to aid your on your exploration, as well as devotional practices to enable you to connect with this powerful goddess on a deep soul level in order to bring about ultimate change. All of this is self-paced so you can do as much or as little as you desire.
For a more guided and group focused journey, the online Exploring the Shadowy Realms of the Dark Goddess sadhana will commence on Tuesday, 27 April 2021. This month long sadhana journey will coincide with Samhain in the Southern Hemisphere, and will take you into the deep Shadow Self through connecting with the Dark Goddess in order to initiate healing and commence positive change at the deepest level.
Registrations for both sadhanas are now open to anyone regardless of what hemisphere you live in.
My latest book, Encountering the Dark Goddess: A Journey into the Shadow Realms, will be officially available in April 2021. However, early pre-release copies can be obtained through me, as well as selective distributors. More updates are regularly announced on Facebook and Instagram.
On Saturday, 17 April 2021 I will be holding an one day exploration of working with your shadow self at the Riverdell Spiritual Centre (Hillier, north of Adelaide) that will also be exploring aspects with of the Dark Goddess and the Shadow Self. More information about this event can be found here.
In 2021 I am intending to host a special Goddess Spiritual Retreat in Bali, the “Land of the Gods” once travel restrictions are lifted. 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.
The Isian Centre of Metaphysics is located on the traditional country of the Kaurna people of the Adelaide Plains, and as such, we recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land.
