About Me

~
Medicine Woman of Forest, Stone, Animal, and Sea

I am weaving magic with the ancient feminine, healing, and art. My life has been a journey of the soul taking me to sacred places on the earth, incredible teachers, and giving me lots of experiences to grow. I am most rooted in Nova Scotia where I have lived most of my life.

I have been a wise woman since I was a child, singing to the sea, collecting plants, inventing languages to speak with nature spirits. As a baby, my father’s name for me was Old Weird Beth. In this name I recognize a connection to the Norns, our ancient northern creator women who weave the web of wyrd under the World Tree, and bring medicine to the present day to heal a troubled world.

IN my life and work I aim to establish deeper connections, embodiment, and surrender with Spirit and Nature. Sharing this gnosis through creative expression, healing, and teaching while supporting others in their own spiritual growth is the gift I offer.

Blessed Be
~
