Hello All!
I have been working on my book, Her Own Sweet Way, my personal story about raising a child with an invisible disability, so I have pulled back on gatherings for now- as I plan to publish in early 2018… Well okay, more like between Lughnasadh and Mabon, but hopefully before Samhain!

I am available for ritual and ceremony upon request, so please feel free to contact me to do this for you!
I will write or perform ritual or ceremony for events at your location. or La Bona Dea on Facebook.

Viola Me

Bright Blessings!

Candle Magic and Keeping Focused Intent Strong at the Fiery time of Year!

Candle magic sigils

A bit about Chaos magic: Chaos magic is a “set it and forget it” magic where we can perform our ritual and so the Universe carries our wish. To do this we must be specific in our intentions and learn to use our intuition to guide us for our best possible outcome. (You can even say “best possible outcome” knowing that you are allowing all things that come to you to be in your best interest.)

We hope to see you there!

February 2016 DELAYED TO SUMMER 2016
Priestess Apprenticeship Begins!
Travel with blessed Mother Earth as completes a full cycle during the Wheel of the Year. Meet the Goddess archetypes, follow the seasons and learn how the ebbs and flows of nature reside in our beings. This journey will introduce you to your personal Priestess-hood.

This is an 8 Sabbat journey identifying your personal power, strengths, challenges, and more as we embark together and bond through sisterhood priestess-ing. We will practice sacred circles; learn about traditional pagan holy days, rituals and goddess archetypes; magical tool crafting and more. Each Sabbat will be from 9am-3pm and the cost is $650 for the yearlong program. Fee includes materials and most supplies. Ordination at the end of the Apprenticeship is optional, additional fee required.

Sabbats will be held primarily in Petaluma.
