I am Bruja Lunasol, a proud witch, activist, consultant heading a global company on transformational practices, the happy holder of 3 passports as evidence that the nation state is a fantasy, and a hopeless music and dance addict.
I was born and raised a witch in Chile, with strong magical influence from both Indigenous (from Chile) and Italian witch lines.
I was initiated by my grandmother Nora Ilda Chiavegat Núñez, and have practiced my whole life. After moving to the US when I was 18, I have studied as a solo practitioner, with a coven in upstate New York in the late 90’s, and with Oak from Reclaiming and continued to participate with the Reclaiming tradition in the SF Bay Area for the last 17 years. I am not currently a member of a coven, but I am the High Priestess for a handful of solo practitioners.
I am a communications expert with 30 years of experience in emotional growth techniques, spiritual development tools, healing, ritual, activism and having a whole lot of fun. I have worked with many tools and traditions in my spiritual practice, including intuitive readings and healings, spellcasting, Reiki, shamanic work, vision quests, past lives, constellations and the tarot.
In my other life as MaritzaSchafer.com, I work as a Communications and Organizational Consultant.
All of these things inform my writing about what it will take for us to live decent lives as individuals and save the species as a collective.
Hope you enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by.
