"One thing I know is that if you came into your birth marked for magic, there is no way around it.”- Orion Foxwood, The Candle and the Crossroads
Welcome to Opening the Portal!
I offer guidance through personal readings and spiritual direction. I bring extensive spiritual training to my work, along with years of experience as a religious studies scholar and teacher. Since this work is offered in the spirit of service, my fees are reasonable and my services are tailored individually to your specific situation. All our interactions are kept absolutely confidential. In addition, my own intercultural upbringing (Jewish and Christian) allows me to extend a profound sensitivity and empathy to you as my client.
In addition to being a graduate of Harvard Divinity School, I hold a doctorate in theological education and am the author of several books on spirituality, including Gnostic Healing (Llewellyn Publishing) and Invoking Mary Magdalene: Accessing the Wisdom of the Divine Feminine (Sounds True Publishing) (my Amazon page). I’ve personally studied with a number of teachers of spirituality, including Margaret Starbird, Mara Freeman, Orion Foxwood, Rabbi Leah Novick, Andrew Harvey, and R.J. Stewart, among others. Learning directly from these remarkable individuals has significantly honed my intuition, knowledge and skills in the seen and unseen realms.
I invite you to take a look at my blog, where I discuss folk magic and lore, sacred herbs and trees, Mary Magdalene, Gnosticism, Jewish spirituality, mysticism, important books I’ve come across, and more. I look forward to getting to know you!
