ani ferlise

Ani is a Priestess, with experience hosting circles, many different ceremonies, and workshops. She has background in Astrology, sacred beekeeping, Kitchen alchemy, Shamanic herbalism, aromatherapy, and is a Reiki Master and Ceremonialist.

Ani has spent much of her life on a path to understand spirituality. To do this, she studied many religions, practices and healing modalities. She worked at a goddess temple, completed a shamanic herbal apprenticeship where she became initiated as a green witch, and an apprenticeship with a priestess where she was initiated as a Midwife of the Veils. In addition to all of this, she holds an English degree from Southern Oregon University, and studied Religion at Hofstra University. To further her spiritual quest, Ani blended together her love of writing and religion to study many different spiritual practices, both in school and in numerous cultural ceremonies. She is currently continuing her exploration of other forms of mystery, like dreaming, numerology, tarot, and palmistry. Her mission is to make it all accessible and practical for any walk of life, and to help inspire people to see the magic that is always in the mundane.

Ani currently resides in Rhode Island where she designs experiences for Kozmic Ryder, and Portland, Oregon where she goes to spend time on her spiritual studies. She is passionate about people, magic and writing, and is close to finishing her first book.


When asked what inspires her she says:

People who live authentically and rawly and own themselves, damn good dumplings, getting lost in a moment, a great song with a wild dance, the ocean, and a really good prayer.
