Crossing into the Mysteries is a members-only training program that will help you become a dynamic contributor to the Temple of Ara community. It will help you discover whether or not the Temple is your spiritual home and it will help you discover a little more about yourself. The principles of Immanent Divinity show us that not only is the Universe sacred, but so are each one of us. It's important to do a little self-reflection and gain clarity before embarking on any journey.

We are a global community
High Priestess, Founding Elder and current Treasurer of the Temple of Ara, Linda Maglionico has been instrumental in the creation of community not only in the New York area, but across the globe. She has developed and implemented such programs as Holiday Celebrations in the physical and spiritual realms, monthly Journey Circles, and 21-Day Healing programs.
She has also taught teaching circles in New York for nearly 10 years, and has conducted workshops in Rome and Milan. Linda currently hosts lunar and solar celebrations in New Jersey as a way to introduce people to Nature as our Greatest Spiritual Teacher. She also helps create community by managing the Temple’s social media strategies.
As a Temple Elder, Linda has performed wedding ceremonies and funerary rituals and is legally recognized as Clergy by the city and state of New York as well as New Jersey.
Linda is a Certified Reiki Master (with a specialization in Animal Reiki), and is a Certified Life Coach, helping people thrive in their lives. Linda is currently developing a proprietary healing modality using Nature as healer to be offered exclusively through the Temple.
She embarked upon her studies with Phyllis Curott and the Circle of Ara in 1995.
