The Spirit Weavers Initiation: Navigating the Gathering with Power and Grace For many of us, a deep awakening occurs when we enter a women’s gathering.

Hi I'm Tonya! I have been working with death and grief for 22 years. It is part of my lineage, and I proudly and humbly holds this precious work. This gift was passed on to me from two generations of women in my family. For me, preparing for your death the way you prepare for a birth is a precious beautiful privilege.
