I’ve been using magical, earth-based practices as a solitary witch since the late 80’s. I began training in Core Neo-Shamanic methods in 1997 at the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.

I’ve studied with many loving, devoted shamanic healers: Janine Ellison, Leslie Conton, John Lawrence, Besty Bergstrom, Sandra Ingerman, Tom Cowan, Anank Nunink Nunkai from Ecuador, Miguel Kavlin from Bolivia, Isa Gucciardi, Bhola Banstola from Nepal, Sangoma John Lockley from South Africa, Christiana Harle from Finland.

For decades, I organized public ceremony and taught neo-shamanic spiritual courses. I drew sacred musicians and dancers together. I opened my home to circles of people for many years. It was a really good time and there was much to be grateful for.

But I had to stop, to learn to take care of myself. I moved out of the city, took my mother’s name and wrote my book, The Ancient Bones of Ceremony: Remembering the Heartfelt Ways.

Having come into a new depth of my own, I am slowly returning. I have been attending the School of Self-Love and finally found my way out of a toxic employment situation.

I completed my M.Ed in Instructional Design and Technology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. I plan on using these new skills to present better courses and sacred experiences for those seeking to further their spiritual path.

Please stand by while this site is built out.

There are plans for hybrid online/in-person Spiritual Activism training. There will also be an opportunity for people to gain skills in effective community facilitation.

Given interest, there is a plan to offer an online community for a minimal fee that is focused on collective learning and ceremony and will require participation. There would be gates to areas for people with certain levels of training and/or commitment. There would be co-mentoring and opportunities for teachers to post their own classes.

To keep updated, please subscribe to the email list at the bottom of the page. I do not believe in making stuff up so I can send out announcements. What comes will be real and it won’t be too often.
