"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!
As a gifted intuitive with over 22 years of professional experience, I offer guidance and healing through personal readings and energy healing, including communication with the dead. I am also trained to petition the spirit or invisible world on your behalf, using traditional folk magic (“hoodoo” or “conjure”) and shamanic journeying. I bring extensive spiritual and magical 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.
A graduate of Harvard Divinity School, I also 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 stellar teachers of spirituality, including Margaret Starbird, Mara Freeman, Orion Foxwood, Rabbi Leah Novick, Andrew Harvey, and R.J. Stewart. Learning directly from these remarkable individuals has significantly honed my intuition and knowledge. My own intercultural upbringing (Jewish and Christian), along with extensive study in comparative religions and cultures, allows me to extend a profound sensitivity and empathy to you as my client.
I welcome your comments and questions. Take a look at my blog, where I discuss folk magic and lore, sacred herbs and trees, Mary Magdalene, Gnosticism, crafting, Celtic and Jewish spirituality, magical Glastonbury, mysticism, and more. I look forward to getting to know you!
