What is a Coven?

For many years I believed the coven was a group of women that met at certain phases of the moon and carried out sacred work dedicated to women’s medicine. I tried and tried to create a coven. My efforts kept failing. Finally, I learned the Italian word for coven, boschetto. In Italian, this is the same word as grove. The fact that these two words are the same in Italian was very interesting to me. I began to hold this knowing in my consciousness. One day, while doing spirit work with a grove of trees on a local mountain, I was shown that the coven is and always was the trees.  The circle of...

Co-dreaming with the Planet

The subject of tending to the Earth is one that can be extremely painful at this time. Many of us find ourselves in a state of despair over what is happening and has been happening to the Earth, not knowing in which way to act. Many of us wish to nurture, help, protect and support life systems but the damage to the Earth is so severe, we also understand that we may be beyond the tipping point. Because of this, many of our current efforts may feel futile. What can  a prayer or making offerings do to help with the climate crisis and extinction rates that are upon us? In an effort to help those...

Why Ancestor Work is Important

The ancestors are a major part of divination and many other kinds of spiritual work. This can be perplexing for some who have no relationship to their ancestors and downright disturbing for those who feel they do not like their ancestors. The way I like to look at it is: an ancestor is anything that has given birth to us in some way and therefore continues to be an evolving part of us. Yes, the stars are our ancestors, bacteria are our ancestors, and humans too are our ancestors, even if we prefer that were not the case. At this time on the planet we all have a lot of ancestors. We continue...

The Goddess Diana: the Tree, the Forest, the Grove

I have, for many years, been bothered with my inability to fully connect with the descriptions and definitions of the Goddess Diana of Italian lore. Being of the Italian Strega lineage I felt that of course, it should come automatically to me. But the truth is, until we have a direct experience with something, we often do not fully connect. We can read all the books we want but if we do not feel it in our bodies, it does not make sense. That is the way it is for me anyway. I knew Diana as the oak tree. That I could understand intellectually because my work is completely intertwined and...

September 2018 Radio Interview with Theresa C. Dintino about Divination, Spiritual Lineages and Working with Elemental Beings

Recently I was interviewed again on the Mystical Positivist Radio Show hosted By Dr. Robert Schmidt and Stuart Goodnick  on KOWS-LP 107.3 FM in Occidental, CA. This is the second time I was invited to be a guest on this lively and engaging show. This time we touched a bit on current events, new projects and then delved even more deeply into the subject of divination and how ones becomes a diviner, the elemental beings and how they work with us, spiritual lineages and how to find them and realign with them. Once again the interview itself offered me much reflection and time for thought as the...

Aligning Ourselves with the Paradigm of the Goddess

The Paradigm (worldview) of the Goddess is a way of life, a way of being, a reality different and other than the current mechanistic paradigm (life as machine) we live in and yet the one revealed more and more through biology, physics, biochemistry and cosmology. This reality has also been confirmed to me through divinations I have done in my time as an initiated diviner. When I first encountered The Paradigm of the Goddess in the books of Marija Gimbutas—wherein she catalogues the archaeological remains of Paleolithic and Neolithic cultures of powerful ancient women long forgotten, ancient...
