Hello, my name is Matooka MoonBear. Since the late 1980’s, my spiritual
Work has been Earth based from Native American ways to Pagan.
My studies first began with teaching myself through all the metaphysical books I could get my hands on. There I discovered energy through crystals
In addition, many forms of nature based teaching including those of Sun Bear.
Over 20 years, I have worked with animals in a spiritual way on many levels. Their powerful medicine has taught me how to continue their sacred journey they have taught me how to use their bodies and call on their spirit to create strong medicine that births into drums, rattles and other Shamanic tools. In this way, their life and death are honored and continue to give to the people.
I am an accomplished Kriya Massage Therapist and Reiki Master Teacher for over 12 years having received training from DoveStar Institute.
My spiritual experiences to date include studying closely with a Mohawk spiritual person for 4 years. During this time, I learned the ways of the red road and Sacred Pipe.
While living in New Mexico, Amritanandamayi (also known as Amma the hugging saint) became my Sat Guru. I joined a local Satsung and studied her teachings for 2 years. I continue to see her each year when she comes to New England.
The journey continued to enfold with returning to New Hampshire and beginning my studies with Granny Moon at Sisters of the Burning Branch (a Goddess School). There I completed 4th degree High Priestess training and initiation.
I am a 10th generation graduate of Priestess Path and an ordained minister for the Temple of Witchcraft located in Salem,NH. In the Temple, I am presently Lead Minister for Cancer Ministry representing the Mother aspect. This is one of 12 of the Zodiac ministries in the Temple. At this time, we are holding monthly Women’s Mystery circles.
