"Returning the Gold to the Earth"

By Infusing it With Ancient Priestess Wisdom

Welcome to Ritual Goddess

A place to celebrate Goddess Consciousness

I created Ritual Goddess as an offering toward what I call ‘returning the gold to the earth by reinfusing it with ancient priestess wisdom’. This reinfusion includes a vast spectrum of wisdom which you can read about here in my blog as well as in my books and novels.


Author of Seven Books

I am the Author of Seven Books:

Teachings from the Trees: Spiritual Mentoring from the Standing OnesNotes From a Diviner in the Postmodern World: A Handbook for Spirit Workers,  The Amazon Pattern,   Welcoming Lilith,   Ode to Minoa,  Stories They Told Me and  The Strega and the Dreamer.

Teachings from the Trees: Spiritual Mentoring from the Standing Ones  In this book, Theresa C. Dintino offers guidance and instruction about how to work energetically with the trees. She gives detailed accounts of what the trees have taught her and relates the story of her relationship to specific trees.

Notes From a Diviner in the Postmodern World: A Handbook for Spirit Workers When I became a diviner, I did not expect to encounter a landscape in the otherworld that I would become familiar with and navigate more easily as I continued to divine. I am still exploring this landscape, but wanted to share some of the things I have learned in order to help those interested in the dimensional realms understand better what they are seeing. What I have included in this book is not meant to be rigid; it is a conversation and a guide.

The Amazon Pattern: A Message from Ancient Women Diviners of Trees and Time
What is an Amazon Woman? Mythical or actual, what were these fierce women fighting for? Perhaps there is more to their story than we have been told.

Welcoming Lilith Lilith is a Goddess who is misunderstood. She is reputed to be Adam’s first wife before Eve & represents the first powerful & liberated female in history. Then why was she banished?

Ode to Minoa is the novel of a Snake Priestess in Bronze Age Crete who, through a series of trance visions, witnesses the history of modern women.

Stories They Told Me is a novel of shamanism and time travel also set in Bronze Age Crete.

The Strega and the Dreamer, tells the story of a Strega, (Italian wisewoman) immigrating to America at the turn of the last century.


After writing two novels about a priestess diviner in Minoan Crete and another novel exploring the Strega lineage in my family, in 2009 I was guided to embark on a journey to become initiated as a diviner in an ancient African tradition.
