Meet Calliope Scherrer of Powerhouse Priestess

Today we’d like to introduce you to Calliope Scherrer.

Hi Calliope, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I started reading tarot when I was 13 years old in my home city of San Francisco, California, but it was a natural calling for me as I am a third-generation tarot reader. My passion didn’t begin and end with the cards. I actually got my start in the film industry, where I gained notoriety as a documentary film producer and director. While I was becoming more successful in my career, I was struggling to cope with childhood trauma which eventually led me to substance abuse just to get through the day.

I knew that I needed to completely deconstruct my life in order to rebuild the true, Powerhouse version of myself. I moved away from the city, lived off my life savings, and completely dove into spiritual healing modalities and inner work. This beautiful and painful journey led to an entire personal transformation. I was amazed and awed by how deep and profound the changes from combining tarot, mindset work, and spiritual healing.

My experiences guided me into creating and developing my business: Powerhouse Priestess. A Powerhouse Priestess is a woman who values her connection with herself, Spirit, and her community. The Powerhouse brand was created with the intent to help women experience the same deep inner peace and life expansion that I did.

Four years into the initial creation of my business, I’ve worked with women at all walks in life. I’ve seen these individuals go through epic transformations that have only further deepened my faith, passion, and joy in my work and in my community. My belief is that when you take a leap of faith in order to pursue your real visions, your goals, your dreams, the Universe will support you and guide you through miraculous synchronicities.

Today, myself and my business are thriving as I have received certifications in Reiki energy healing has welcomed two new team members to the Priestess-hood and have recently launched the Powerhouse Priestess membership.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Being an entrepreneur is not an easy path. This is not the journey for those who just “want to be their own boss.” Entrepreneurs are the boss, but they are also the assistant, the accountant, the coordinator, the strategist. This path is the most rewarding one I’ve followed, but I’ve truly given it everything I have.

I’ve experienced well over 40 hour work weeks, failed endeavors, personal heartache. But I’ve also experienced triumph, established lifelong relationships and I’ve curated a community where women feel inherently valued and are finally able to realize their goals and dreams. The struggles I’ve gone through were bumpy to say the least, but they’ve helped me bring my Powerhouse Priestess energy out into the world.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Powerhouse Priestess, previously Avesah, is quite literally a cosmic plug for self-actualization and activation. This organization is founded by a Priestess, with Priestesses and for Priestesses: people who are intentional and intuitive, intelligent and confident, people who are eager to learn and ready to take that knowledge and move towards the future they’ve always envisioned.

I come from a long lineage of psychic tarot readers, and I’ve taken that ingrained connection a step further with my focuses in the film and business industries. I believe that every individual is the director and main character in their own life. Using that mindset, I use multiple modalities to help Priestesses gain clarity. I don’t just lay the cards at your feet; I give you insight into how these cards are bound to your story and how to use them to your advantage. I utilize Reiki energy healing, life coaching practices and have now gone a step further with the Powerhouse Priestess Membership.

A lot of individuals need guidance and accountability, and this is exactly what the membership offers. It’s a collective of similarly intentional women whose energy works to raise the entire group. Together, we do monthly growth and development, Reiki healing, rituals, and we have a monthly guest healer or field expert. Outside of our scheduled meetings, we access each other through our virtual portal- always offering kind words and insights.

What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was an independent child who followed the beat of my own drum. For one year straight, I only wore leopard print dresses. I was fearless and preferred my own world and company.

When I was ten years old, without my parent’s knowledge, I plucked the oranges and lemons from my backyard trees and went door to door selling them to my neighbors. I’ll never forget the satisfaction, power, and joy I had filling my velcro Hello Kitty wallet with self-earned money. I used my boldness and creativity to start making films at 12, and by 17 had started my first business: film production.
