Honouring the Ancient through Modern Practice

My spiritual work honours ancient lineages while moving the practices forward to address social inequalities, environmental crises, and bring us back to a soul-centred animate world of wonder worth living in.

I am a Mystic Animist Priestess influenced by western & eastern mysticism, esoteric mystery traditions, hermeticism, alchemy, contemporary Paganism, Druidry, and Gnosticism.

I have an unwavering love for neolithic and ancient Goddess cultures found throughout the world, especially the Ancient Mediterranean and Near Eastern regions.


Weaving a New Future

As a body-positive queer femme engaged to my non-binary partner Stacy Maskell, I am interested in how I can more fully embrace and uplift a Divine Feminine way of being while also holding space for multiple gender expressions.

As a coach and evolutionary power practitioner, I am influenced by somatic and mindfulness-based approaches with a focus on positive psychology, resilience research, and a holistic view of living a meaningful life.

I have taken refuge in Buddhism, and am a Yoga and meditation practitioner. I am currently learning Ayurveda, qigong, astrology, sound healing, and the frame drum. I live in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
