Susan's earliest memories, starting at around age four, involve her grandmother teaching her how to do divination with a button on a string. On her 7th birthday her mother gave her her first tarot deck. Divination and Magic are Susan's passions and she has dedicated her life to spiritual and healing practices. Along the way, Susan earned a degree in Psychology with an emphasis on Biology, helping to facilitate her natural counseling, intuitive, and healing abilities.
In a response to a desire to bring earth based spirituality & magick back to its roots, Susan started a professional business in the field and has had a magical arts shop for over 16 years. Her private practice of spiritual consultations and healing work spans decades. Susan has also created a learning center for alternative faiths and cultural creatives so that others may learn and grow. Many of her clients have been with her for five, ten, fifteen, or more years.
Susan is a tarot consultant (voted "best psychic" is Santa Cruz County for 3 years in a row), astrologer, rootworker, shamanic practitioner, initiated Palera, energy worker, teacher, dream walker, and owner of Serpent's Kiss Magick Shop and Botanica and Crossroads Community Space.
She is a founding member of AIRR (Association of Independant Readers and Rootworkers) and Co-owner with Orion Foxwood of 2Hoodoos.com, and a member of Conjure Crossroads along with Orion Foxwood, Sindy Todo, Starr Casas, and Shimmering Wolf. She has extensive knowledge of crystals and herbs as reflected in many of her custom herb, mineral, and oil preparations, incense, soaps, waters, sprays, mojo hands, and candles. She is the sole creator and distributor of Dancing Witch & Moon Garden oils, incense, candles, soaps and baths and creates the many items you find at her shop.
I started this business in response to a desire to bring earth based spirituality back to its roots and back to nature and to serve the community needs of those of alternative faiths. I continue to seek out the many truly inspired and talented craftspeople whose hearts guide their creative works. Authenticity is what we strive for. I hope you enjoy what we have to offer. Many of the items at Serpent's Kiss come from nature and are prepared in harmony with her. Most of our products are prepared by genuine practitioners, Priests and Priestesses, wise men and women. Check in with us often, we are growing daily.
