Susan Diamond

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 magical and healing practices. Along the way, Susan earned a degree in Psychology with an emphasis on Biology, helping to facilitate her natural counseling, psychic, and healing abilities.

In a response to a desire to bring earth based spirituality & magic back to its roots, Susan started a professional business in the field and has had a magical arts shop for over 15 years. Her private practice of readings and spell work spans decades. Susan has also created a learning center for alternative faiths, cultural creatives, and magic so that others may learn and grow.

Susan is a tarot card reader, psychic consultant, astrologer, rootworker, shamanic practitioner, initiated Palera, energy worker, teacher, dream walker, and owner of Serpent's Kiss Magic Shop and Botanica, Crossroads Community Space, & Dancing Gypsy.

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.

Susan was voted as the Best Psychic in Santa Cruz County 2012, 2013 and 2014 by the local community, published in the Santa Cruz Weekly Goldie Awards and GoodTimes Best Of magazines.

Sharon Knight is an internationally touring musician and initiate of the Anderson Feri tradition. She has been combining magic and music for over 20 years, seeing each practice as an extension of the other. Sharon's approach to magic is that anything that sufficiently kindles the imagination can open a portal to another world. In her opinion, song and poetic imagery are among the most powerful ways to open portals to magical realms. In this workshop she shares her deep and abiding love of the sea, of which she has written many songs. She has taught numerous workshops over the years, and is currently working on her 9th studio album. You can learn more about her at http://www/sharonknight.net.
