Divination is about so much more than one on one interpersonal dialogue. Divination is community medicine. Divination has a much larger role it wishes to play within communities and with the earth. Divination has a public component that is wanting to be explored. It’s time to take it to the community.

There is a wholeness to the medicine that wishes to be articulated.

The Strega Tree Collective has for many years been working on the land with the local spirits and sacred spaces that need tending for the good of the whole. Now we are offering a class to teach others to learn these methods and techniques. The class, taught by Theresa C. Dintino, is based on her newest book: Membranes of Hope.

From the cells in our bodies to the cosmos around us, membranes serve as boundary and container. Membranes, be they physical, spiritual or energetic, contain, protect, and inform our personal souls, families, villages, the Earth, and extend out into the universe. The role of the spirit worker has always been to tend to, support, and keep these membranes strong and supple so that what is held within them not only survives but thrives. In this 5 part course, Theresa C. Dintino defines this revolutionary concept and offers the student tools to learn how to engage in the work of caring for the membranes.

Learn more about the Concept of the Membranes by watching my playlist Membranes of Hope: Keeping Lifesystems Healthy on our Strega Tree Apothecary You Tube channel here.

Course includes 5 sessions (required to take all), one per month, beginning in April 2022.

Below are the five monthly sessions with general descriptions of what will be covered in both online and in person sessions.
Each of the five monthly sessions will have one 2-3 hour class with the option of additional labs.The labs are 3 additional one hour long, one-on-one meetings per session with Theresa. The labs offer personal, in depth guidance and consultation on the work and its progression as we move through the many layers of membranes.

Theresa C. Dintino is the author of eight books and serves as a guide and spiritual mentor to many. While attempting to reclaim and restore her ancestral medicine lineage, the Italian Strega tradition, Dintino was surprised to be “claimed” by the West African Dagara tradition of stick divination. Honored by this invitation, Dintino pursued it, and in 2011 was initiated into this potent form of divination. Besides her family and daughter, this turned out to be the greatest gift of her life.
