My path to becoming a diviner began long before I ever knew I was on it. Only after I had been divining for years did I realize that my life had been leading me here from the beginning.
I was born into a personal family lineage of the Italian Strega through my father’s Abruzzese line. His grandmother, Domenica, has been my strongest mentor. She guided me to become initiated into the tradition of stick divination held and generously shared by the Dagara people of Burkina Faso.
The interaction of these two paths at a pivotal point in my life constellated all the work I had done through writing and research into a form I could offer as service to my community. That service is divination and all the work that flows out of and through it. My work is a three-pronged combination of my Italian Strega lineage, Dagara stick divination as well as intimate work with the places and entities in my local ecosystem.
My personal journey with this medicine is more fully articulated in my Tree Medicine Trilogy: The Amazon Pattern: A Message from Ancient Women Diviners of Trees and Time, Notes from a Diviner in the Postmodern World: A Handbook for Spirit Workers and Teachings From the Trees: Spiritual Mentoring from the Standing Ones.
My most recent book, Membranes of Hope: A Guide to Attending to the Spiritual Boundaries that Keep Life Systems Healthy from the Personal to the Cosmic offers instructions and guidelines for entering into this work at any level one wishes.
