Creator of The Priestess Path
Hi, my name is Beth Leone and I’ve devoted my life to exploring the bounds of human potential. I have traveled the world, learning form lineage masters, immersing myself in shamanism, martial arts, qigong, sacred sexuality, and spirituality. I consider myself a warrior of love and light and my mission is to ignite this passion in others.
I believe we are eternal souls on an eternal timeline. At a young age, I was interest in Mysticism and have spent my life training with masters and grand masters in shamanism, Shaolin Kung Fu , Taoist qigong, sacred sexual arts and business. I have 5 black belts in Shaolin Kung Fu and am the first female Master in my martial art lineage.
I quit college to study shamanism and blazed a new trail of life and livlihood which culminated in creating a school for women to learn the sacred arts. The Priestess Path is designed to initiate women into the sacred arts.
My predominant orientation is that of a healer. Since I was a child, I’ve had a deep connection to animals and nature, spending most of my childhood in forests. The spirit world has always been close to me and I began my healing work at the age of 5 taking my mother’s headaches away. Since I can remember, I have had the desire to alleviate the suffering of the downtrodden, the animals, and the earth.
You are invited on a journey into the mystic and the sacred....
My Initiatory Illness
When I was 15, I developed a severe eating disorder and was taken out of school and hospitalized by 17. When I came out of the hospital, I was worse. Left to my own destruction, I became motivated by the power of this addiction and took control of my own healing.
My intention to heal led me to study with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies at the age of 18. My teachers were Sandra Ingerman and Michael Harner. In fact, it was Sandra that moved me to dedicate my life to that of a healer. Shortly after I began a dedicated shamanic practice, I experienced a full and complete healing. I continued to study with the Foundation for Shamanic studies and graduate from the 3rd West Coast Three Year Program in Advanced Shamanic Healing.
Dedication to the Healing Path
In my 20’s I discovered the martial arts. This led me to Shaolin Kung Fu which has the healing and spiritual art of qigong as its root. Inside of the world of qigong I found healing, emotional peace and a deep connection to Spirit which has become my daily ritual that sets the world right. My passion for high level education, Kung Fu and qigong has resulted in earning 5 black belts and the position of master instructor. During this time, I owned five black belt schools and qigong centers in Arizona and trained thousands of students.

What it takes to be a master in our lineage
In The United Martial Arts Association of America, in order to earn the rank of master, one must earn a minimum of 5 black belts, own and successfully run at least one martial art school and graduate a certain number of black belts (the exact number of which keeps rising every year.) and be a person of honorable character. I was the first female in our lineage to satisfy the achievements necessary for this to occur.
My Martial Path
“A true master makes masters.”
I would not have become a martial art ‘master’ had I not married into it. The time, money and dedication required to train every day of ones’ life for over a decade to earn 5 black belts and spend over 1,000 personal instruction hours with a master is astronomical. I was destined and blessed to have married a master. During our time together, he trained me every day while and we owned and operated 5 Kung Fu and Qigong centers, founded Zen Wellness and trained thousands of black belts. He always said, “a true master make masters.” He meant it and he trained me to become the first female Master in our lineage. I shared blood, sweat and tears with my fellow black belts and then became their teacher, forging a deep heart and a strong will of the human spirit to reach our highest potential. I am proud to be a part of these lineages dating back 4,000 years alongside my ancestors that have committed themselves over the ages.
My journey to Master Teacher took almost 15 years of daily training. I had to overcome many personal obstacles to achieve this. I battled lethargy, depression, debilitating shyness, fear, anger, depression and pain. There were times on my journey that I wanted to quit but I continued. All these challenges tested my spirit yet, by continuing to train regardless of circumstances. Had I allowed any event to interfere with my training, I would not have achieved the rank of Master. Becoming a part of these ancient lineages and then becoming a lineage holder myself, forged me like a blade of steel in many fires of transformation. I have been trained by real masters — by the men that make warriors.
Radiant Light Qigong
After over a decade of classical training in Shaolin Kung Fu and Taoist Qigong, I created my own form of Qigong, called Radiant Light Qigong.
This form infuses feminine flow, power, sensuality and grace while connecting shamanically to the spirits and elements.
I have taught thousands of people world wide and continue to share the evolutionary practices on love, sex and relationships in workshops, in private teachings and online for those interested in cultivating through the ancient arts.
The Priestess Path
It is my joy to initiate women into their sacred path, Divine knowing and sexual empowerment. I offer the Priestess Process as a vehicle to give back the knowledge that was given to me. I combine shamanism, mystic marriage, Taoist Sexuality and Taoist martial arts to empower women.
Why ‘The Taoist Priestess’?
I was initiated as a Priestess in 1999 in the Lineage of Isis and Magdalene before my time in the marital arts. Due to the heavy Taoist influence of my martial training, some have come to call me ‘The Taoist Priestess’ to encapsulate the combination of these lineages I carry.
