I am a writer, midwife and creative human who believes that creative expression and connection to mystery can help us connect deeply with ourselves and others. I don’t believe in rules around creation. My joy and purpose is in holding space for others to express themselves, to practice liberation and connection to earth and community. I have also spent the last decade diving deeply into ancestral work; storytelling, culture reclaiming, and honoring the history before immigration/assimilation/organized religion. I do believe that if we desire to connect with our past blood, it may help us do better in the present, it may be a tool in reform. When we are connected, to our own cellular wisdom, we are more benevolent, healthier humans. I have learned so much about creation, passion, love, anger, trauma, and injustice by digging deep into my own ugly and admirable histories.
I am currently writing a book with the working title :: Blood + Belonging, which is inspired by my magical and deeply complex Sicilian ancestry, my pilgrimage to ancestral land, the connection between spirit / food / earth /community and the trading-in of culture, ritual, connection, relations to land and our children for whiteness, capitalism + The American Dream.
I also guide women in mystery work, using the journey of the tarot and the embodiment ancient wisdoms including plant medicine, movement, nature reading, and quantum midwifery. My greatest teachings come through in my Modern Mystery School where we explore and practice ancient wisdom that is still available to us.
I live in the pacific northwest, on stolen land of the Chinookan people. I love and cherish this bio-region and spend as much time as I can outside with my three wild and fierce daughters, my partner and a really big dog.
