Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Hilary Whitmore has been drawn to witchcraft since she was just a wee teen. She was raised in the Presbyterian church and attended catholic school, but both left her searching for something that felt more like “home”. Hilary has communicated with spirits for as long as she can remember. Both her mother and her grandmother were intuitives and she is grateful to have inherited that special skill, herself. Hilary began practicing witchcraft in her late 20’s, a shift that changed her life in wonderful ways. Today she works with herbs, crystals, and candles. In addition to being a witch, Hilary is a trained opera singer and vocal instructor. She produces and performs ritual performance art that has taken her around the globe. After years in London and the Bay Area, she is happy to be back in the Pacific NW, living in the Woodstock neighborhood with her ridiculously cute dog, Riley.
A Pacific Northwest girl at heart, Kanani Soleil was born with a desire to learn the secrets of the universe and a fascination with different theologies. She actively sought out different paths in an effort to find her way. At twenty, she embraced Witchcraft. She became a proud mother to the two souls whose spirits were with her for years, a daughter and a son who look and act just as they did in her visions. Her favorite incense is Nag Champa because it reminds her of outdoor markets. Her practice involves candle Magick and reading Tarot. She is currently the board President of Other World’s of Wonder, a Portland, OR non-profit Pagan organization with a goal of building community. Her favorite phrase is “If you can’t stir with the big girls, stay away from the cauldron.”
Born in the South and raised in the Pacific Northwest, Courtney Weber was raised Roman Catholic, influenced by Southern Baptism (straight out of the mountains of North Carolina). She has spoken to the dead and dreamed prophetic dreams for as long as she can remember. At twenty, she embraced Witchcraft as her path in spirit and life. An ordained Wiccan Priestess, she lived in New York City for thirteen years, where she led a Coven and built one of the largest Pagan communities in the Tri-State area. She has taught Witchcraft and Pagan spirituality around the United States. She is an author of the books: Brigid: History, Mystery, and Magick of the Celtic Goddess; Tarot for One: The Art of Reading for Yourself; and the forthcoming The Morrigan: Celtic Goddess of Magick and Might. She is a professional Tarot consultant and an activist. Courtney has been featured in the New York Times, Maxim, Playboy, Huffington Post, and the Thom Hartmann Show. Her favorite Magickal herb is the lemon balm she grows in her backyard and her favorite curse is, “May all of your tattoos fade.” #soccermommorticia
