Our Story

 

Strega Tree is a collective of diviners working with the elemental beings (fairies, gnomes, elves fey, sidhe), Earth, cosmic entities (angels, archangels, goddesses, gods), our own ancestral lineages and the Dagara tradition of divination from West Africa.

Our purpose and intention is to bring healing by listening deeply to beings in the other dimensions for what is needed at this Time on the planet. We offer divination sessions (similar to what most know as tarot or psychic readings) in person or distance for those not in proximity to one of our diviners.

Strega Tree Apothecary was born through divination. Theresa C. Dintino and Sarah Wieland were invited to sit and listen for remedies from the spiritual dimensions that nurture, support and replenish the soul pattern of living beings at all levels of reality, including ecosystems, Earth, family and community. The potency of the Dagara tradition of divination is the rituals choreographed by spirit. Theresa and Sarah are delighted that ritual is embedded in the product line, both in production and for the end user. Each product comes with a custom-made ceremony. As diviners Sarah and Theresa tend to a plethora of shrines that offer embodiment to the spirits they work with, from the elementals to the Earth, to the ancestors, to star beings and more. Strega Tree Apothecary’s products are activated on the shrines which imbue them with their particular power. In addition is the potency of medicine collected from the ritual engagement with their allies in their local landscape, from mountains, to ocean, wetlands and forest, fostered over years of relationship.

Why Strega Tree?

Why Strega Tree?

We chose this name in order to honor our main mentors: Theresa’s great-grandmother who was a Strega (Italian wise woman) and the intricate network of magical Trees. Like the Trees, we operate only for the highest good and the ascension of all beings..

About our Logo, The Cimaruta

The Cimaruta is a sprig of the Rue (Ruta) plant that, in the Italian tradition, represents the Strega lineage. Rue is a potent healing plant but also represents the branches of a Tree and Tree medicine. The charms that hang from the branches are many of the magical entities of the work.

Honoring the Dagara

Honoring the Dagara

The ancient practice of stick and voice divination travelled to us from the Dagara people of Burkina Faso. When we divine we use the teachings and protocol as they were given to us. Our ongoing practice with these divination systems allows us to listen for how this medicine wants to be carried in the Western World.
