I have been a practicing witch: doing ritual, performance and community organizing/activist/social work with people who live in poverty for over 25 years. I walk a spiritual path devoted to erotic and ecstatic communion with spirit in all of its faces and forms and am called to helping others to experience immanence through many roads including western queer tantric practice and shamanic journey work. I have facilitated workshops in leadership, personal growth, sacred sexuality and mask making for many years. First teaching Reclaiming classes in 2001, and then at Witchcamps starting in 2003, I am devoted to service and organizing work. Dedicated to Freya and initiated into Reclaiming, the Honey Bees Clan and the Bear clan as well as Queer Spirit – those roots and conversations inform my daily life.
I can be found dancing on the street corner or wandering through the forest. I use dance as a form of resistance. I pick up litter in service to the earth. I am a mother, grandmother and auntie. I am a dancer, exercise enthusiast, lover of the natural world, and a social justice activist. Reclaiming calls to me as a way to integrate my spirituality and social activism. I came to Reclaiming by way of eclectic witchcraft, mindfulness, Unitarianism, Judaism and anarchism. Deeply angered by the injustices of the world, I have learned to turn rage and sorrow into action. I love to laugh, eat locally grown food, and notice the beauty around me.

The Iron Pentacle is a core element of my spiritual practice. I’ve been a Reclaiming Witch since the mid-80s. I’ve been walking and teaching a bit along this path of devotion and wonder ever since. I call myself Hag and Hedge Witch. As an astrologer, I am in love with the sky and the starry guides who live there. Did you know that the iron in our blood came from the birth of those stars? For me the Iron Pentacle is about my birthright to live fully in the joyful brilliance of Sex, Pride, Self, Power, and Passion. I am excited about practicing this tool in community.
