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
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.
