I was trying to figure out as a community worker why political folk were so distant from the spiritual community—clairvoyants, mediums, those kind of folks whom I was studying with. I wondered what would happen if we could bring them together as Bookmam brought them together under Toussaint, as Nan brought them together in Jamaica...Why don’t we have a bridge language so that clairvoyants can talk to revolutionaries?

Tay, The Witch Goddess--Black Queer Feminist Theorist, Artist, Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master, Tantrika, Astrology & Tarot Intuitive Therapist

Specialization: Feminist Holistic Spiritual Wellness

Tay is a mystic, wellness practitioner, and Black lesbian feminist scholar-artist born and raised in rural South Carolina. She has a Master's in African American Studies from Northwestern University; and received both her Bachelor's in Women's Studies and Political Science, and her Master's in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies from The Ohio State University. There, her research, student activism and involvement, and teaching centered Black and women of color feminisms, decolonial feminist pedagogy, queer student of color experiences in education, colonial histories, and neocolonial state carceal violence against Black women and queer and trans people of color.

Still personal-political in nature, and informed by black feminist principles of embodied theory-in-praxis and being a healer, her work and leadership at Northwestern University included co-teaching undergraduate courses, working as the program assistant at Northwestern University's Women's Center, serving on the university LGBT Task Force, the Sexual Misconduct Working Group, and serving as a student leader/liaison in university efforts to better serve students through university programming and initiatives.  

In addition to her mystic gifts and practitioner certifications, her degrees and university teaching in history, race, gender, and sexuality studies support her readings and consultations with clients.

The Witch Goddess Sacred Wellness coheres around education, divination, and healing through the stars, the word, music, sexuality, and spirit. Tay, The Witch Goddess offers consultations using tarot + astrology readings, trauma-informed shadow work coaching, intimacy/relationship coaching, Usui Holy Fire Reiki energy healing, therapeutic and tantric touch, and sound healing to help others gain clarity for self-empowerment, decision-making, spiritual growth, self-actualization, psycho-somatic health, and pleasure for embodied wholeness.

Her unique offerings, courses, and workshops center healing justice, spiritual ascension, sacred sexuality, and holistic wellness; and are also varied and tailored for anyone--ranging from students, to institutions, businesses/organizations, individuals, or couples. She’s available for speaking engagements & workshops.

As a mixtress, she loves to create ethereal, astral, druggy, erotic future-bass-heavy soundscapes for emotional alchemy. In her DJ sets and mixes you'll find a mix of ethereal ambient electronic, future bass, alternative, indie, comtemporary and classic R&B, soul, jersey club, reggae, Afrobeats, trap and Southern hip hop.

This site is a space to house my lifework as a love child of the universe wedded to a Black queer lesbian feminist politics and healing justice :  my writing—academic and personal, as it traverses poetry, feminist issues and scholarship; my knowledge about holistic and erotic spiritual wellness and the spiritual ascension journey; my art, which is divinatory and cathartic in hopes that it helps you on on your own journey of enlightenment, self empowerment, and intentional, pleasureful living through integration and following Spirit.
