But before I'd return to Italy, I began to train under under an NSAC certified Spiritualist Minister in San Francisco, starting in 2012.
My work with the Spirit World, or rather their work with me, is continually expanding and changing, which is one of the most exciting aspects of Mediumship: learning never ends.
I work with a team of guides who include, but are not limited to, helpers of the Great Mother Goddess: Cibele, Iside, Diana and Aradia. Because my work is Spirit-guided,
I often find myself surprised by the direction in which they focus my expression, like finding a sudden turn in a river's flow, not staying in one creative format long before moving onto another, then returning full-circle again.
I became a prominent public figure at the Spiritualist center, giving weekly Medium platform readings, lectures and healings.
I was invited by my teacher to give workshops and developed a series called Psychic Science.
These lecture workshops were continually sold out: part lecture, part experiential exercises, all channeled information from the Spirit World about how the psychic senses work and can be practically used. This channeled material was made into a book.
I was eventually invited teach the Advanced Mediumship weekly class after he left, and I also developed and taught the Mediumship Training for Beginners 6 weeks course for the center. I was also Secretary of the Board.

As a natural born Medium, for many years I didn't know there was a "word" to call what I was, nor did I know there others like me.. In fact, it was my Spirit Guide who helped me discover that there was training available for someone like me. We would begin working together in 2009, when I would stay in Tuscany, Italy, in a small guest house in the middle of olive fields in Castagento Carducci. Here I'd meet her, the spirit of an Italian witch, who began to teach me daily while my patient husband-to-be waited outside, writing songs under the pomegranate tree. She had plans for me that would continue when I returned to the US: including encouraging me to train as a Medium at a chartered Spiritualist center, learning how to give messages from "the dead," how to heal, and then to guide me to return to Italy in 2016 to meet Lineage healers with their mysterious spirit cures on mountain tops, in medieval villages, and to meet secret groups like Benandanti and other young witches.

My partnership with this Goddess team of Cibele, Iside, Diana, and Aradia, focuses on: anthropological documentation of living women in Italy who are part of Lineage practices, from a spiritual insider perspective
demonstrationof the Lineage practices I am initiated into,
teaching an organized system of clean, high-quality communication with the Spirit World for daily life improvement akin to the Signora del Gioco's Spirit Circle tradition in Italy... so that everyone can connect with their family traditions. The spirit world is alive, after all, and our greatest resource to improving our "now" and also reconnecting us with our "past,"
and practical application using pre-pagan female-created symbols and symbolic language for rirutal expression and experience.
Working together towards reclamation of pre-pagan
feminine shamanism of Italy and Old Europe's ancient past.
As my teaching schedule increased, and other Goddess guides began to work with me regularly, pulling me into ecstatic trance and showing me visions of spiritual practices in Italy's history, my work with the Spirit World began to take on a markedly different focus: historical recovery. The guidance of these Goddesses focused on reclaiming Ancient Divinely Feminine Wisdom found in Italy's pre-pagan days, and still alive in the Italian Lineage curing traditions, which are a form of shamanism. Some Lineages can trace their family lines back more than 500 years, and they still maintain a connection to Italy and Old Europe's pre-pagan feminine daily spiritual practices.
