Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom. - Aristotle
2020 was a year full of challenges. One of the many challenges Denise faced was reframing who she was going to be. With her general sense of optimism, curiosity, and good sense of humor she set out to research and incubate ideas. In June of that year, Denise saw in Sistership Circle the opportunity for her to offer a safe space for women to feel more empowered to dive deep in order to live more happy and divinely connected lives upheld by the hands and hearts of sisterhood. She believes that it is from our web of relationships we can stand in our power.
Denise’s spiritual focus is on oracular spae and seidhr; shamanistic trance and journey work; honoring and working with the Ancestors and the nature spirits/spirits of place; and love magic. As a founding member of the spae group Bjornsal, this group of women offered oracular spae at festivals as well as at private events.
Denise is a High Priestess of North Wyldewood Coven & co-Founder of the North Wyldewood Tradition, a NYC-based Wiccan coven. She has been teaching and facilitating open and private rituals for over 20 years. The Tradition has an extensive curriculum from beginner Enter the Wyldewood Grove classes through earning a Third Degree.
Professionally, she is a NYS Licensed Teacher with a BA from Bradford College majoring in Creative Writing and a MsEd from Hunter College in Elementary Education, as well as educational credits in Special Education. She taught the elementary grades in NYC public schools; preschool in a special education school for developmentally delayed children especially those on the Autistic Spectrum; and, preschool at a small private, progressive-education school in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
Her play passions – things done to recharge and feel good – include: walking in nature whether the beach or the mountains; meditation; dancing; painting, crafting and beading; fire escape gardening; writing, reading, & listening to Audible (because who doesn’t love being read to). She is a born and raised resident of Brooklyn, NYC. She lives with her steamfitter, DJ-ing partner JR and their adorable blue-nosed pittie, The Duchess.
