Who we are
We are two long-time witches seeking to build community, share knowledge, and educate the non-pagan community about the Craft.

A mother of two, mimi of three, Wife, Sister, Cat Lover, Truth-seeker, Psychopomp, Bone Witch, Oracle through which the Divine Speaks, Mentor, Musician, Artist, Writer, Content Creator, a gardener of both mundane and baneful flora, and a heart filled with Wanderlust, she shies away from nothing.

Ivy practices divination via tarot, oracle, runes, bone-throwing and pendulums.
Gwenna Obscura has been on a twisting, turning pagan path since childhood.
At about 10 years old, she read ‘The Witches Bible’ by Gavin and Yvonne Frost, which set her feet on the crooked path of witchcraft. Over the years, Gwenna expanded her knowledge through independent study, classes, workshops, and practice, practice, practice.
A green eclectic witch for more than 20 years, she is currently studying druidism and is a bard and member of The Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids.
In Gwenna’s mundane life, she worked as a newspaper reporter and later as a copy editor and designer. She is now manager of The Enchanted Kitchen, where she reads oracle and teaches classes and workshops on topics such as paganism, witchcraft, herbs, and divination. She has been a belly dance performer and instructor for 15 years and incorporates the movements of belly dance into her spiritual practice.
Gwenna is co-founder of W.A.S.P. (Witches, Allies, Spiritualists, and Pagans), a community group for everyone under the pagan umbrella.
