Cella Study Program

Women's Thealogical Institute - Cella Training Program

The Cella Program is a course of study designed to assist women to explore, expand and strengthen their practice of womenís spirituality.

What Cella Means

Cella (pronounced SELL-uh) is a reclaimed word. For the women of the Congregation it means the inner mysteries. In a conventional dictionary, Cella is defined as the inner part of the temple. The women of the Congregation chose the word Cella because it is our hope that those participating in Cella Training discover the inner mysteries to themselves and Goddess religion.
