I’m an Italian American Benedetta, herbalist, author and teacher.  I divide my time between my medicinal herb farm and teaching center in rural Maine and my ancestral village in the mountains of Southern Italia. Sharing traditional, spirit nourishing and healing ways brings me great joy. On this site I will be sharing audio files and written documents related to my ongoing research for my forthcoming book, Benedicaria; The Blessing Way of Southern Italian Folk Medicine, This work includes the historical magical/spiritual healing practices, prayers, rituals, formulas, protective amulets and symbols, mudras, the Divine Feminine and the Saints, dream incubation, seasonal ceremonies and beliefs of my Southern Italian ancestors. I will also be integrating my extensive herbal Materia Medica here, developed over forty years of practice as a Community Herbalist.  I’m excited about this new platform for sharing my passions with you, lovingly encourage you to support my on-going work and thank you from the fullness of my wild heart for joining me here. Our work begins with a look at our origins and early indigenous Sud Italian tribal culture.

Goals
18 of 100 patrons
When I reach approximately 100 patrons I will publish Benedicaria; The Blessing Way of Southern Italian Folk Medicine. In the meanwhile, I continue my research and teaching on the subject. When I return to the village this spring I will be working with an interpreter who speaks both the dialect and English, to help me record the ancient prayers and formulas carried by the old ones in my village, aged 80 -100, in the original language of our ancestors, just as they have been passed through oral transmission across many hundreds of years.
