Hi, I’m Serena and I am a Tarot Reader & Healing Facilitator based in Toronto, ON.
I follow a Pagan path and identify primarily as a Hearth Witch or Hedge Witch, which means I integrate my spiritual practice into my every day life in practical ways, especially in my home. Magick and the mundane are woven together. I also spend time in the liminal realm connecting with Spirit for guidance.
The Cauldron Goddess is named after the Welsh Goddess Cerridwen, whom I work with, and the cauldron is an important symbol to me. It represents the warm comfort of the hearth, nourishment, the womb, the Divine Feminine, transformation, and community. These are energies I strive to cultivate in my practice.
Part of my path as a Hearth Witch is about holding and creating sacred space. This is a skill I have been honing over many years.
My training in holistic healing, counselling, social justice, trauma and sacred space creation give me a strong foundation for helping clients feel safe enough to explore their intuitive, sensitive self.
As a highly sensitive person, introvert and empath, I value space in which my sensitivities are honored and I strive to create the same for clients in my Tarot readings, healing sessions and circles.
My Witch path…
My witch path has mostly been eclectic over the years. I met a few local witches and joined local covens, mingling and exploring what resonated with me and what didn’t. I found I leaned strongly towards Goddesses and the Divine Feminine, as I felt that was the energy I resonated with most and still do today.
Astrology has been a lifelong passion and study of mine and I weave this knowledge into my practice. I studied astrology for years with professional mentors through the Canadian Association for Astrological Education as well as self-study.
After I had my daughter in 2008, my new life as a mom brought me to the Hearth Witch path, where I learned how to weave magick into my more mundane home-based duties. This has continued through the years to the present.
In 2013, I studied shamanic healing with Daniel Leonard of the Medicine Circle, which taught me alot about trancework and journeying to the Spirit realm for guidance. Alongside this, I took a holistic health practitioner training at Transformational Arts College, where I received a strong foundation in aromatherapy, herbalism, Bach flower remedies, energy healing and much more.
I spent a few years focusing on Ancient Egyptian magick, devoting myself to Isis/Iset, goddess of magick, motherhood and healing. My relationship with Isis was a big part of my womb healing experience as I struggled with endometriosis.
I’ve also been on a journey of learning the Indigenous traditions and history of Turtle Island (North America), the land I walk on. I am of French & UK settler and Indigenous ancestry and have been in a process of connecting to ancestral lands, community, culture and healing. I continue to learn from Indigenous folks, elders and teachers to unpack my own biases and conditioning.
In 2018, I obtained a Social Service Worker with Indigenous Perspectives diploma from Fleming College and did my placement at Native Women’s Resource Centre of Toronto. This experience has influenced my practice today.
In the last few years, I’ve been learning the Pagan traditions and mythology of my Celtic ancestors, most especially Welsh traditions, answering the call to Cerridwen in the process . My path is ever-evolving as I listen to the call of Spirit as it unfolds and do my best to honor Deities and their traditions with respect and integrity.
Random stuff about me…
My husband and daughter keep me grounded and are my everything. I have 3 amazing feline familiars and am a total cat lover! My favourite ways to spend my free time are cuddling cats, communing with nature, reading, gardening, travelling to sacred sites, astrology, tarot, and infusing magick into the mundane.

As a Witch who makes her home and practice in Tkaronto (Toronto) Ontario, I deeply thank the original stewards of this land: The Mississaugas of the Credit, Mississaugas of Scugog, Alderville, Hiawatha & Curve Lake; The Chippewas of Beausoleil, Rama & Georgina island, the Haudenosaunee and Wendat nations. I acknowledge the resilience of the First Nation, Inuit and Metis people who live and work here in the present, in a system of inequity and oppression. I am working on uncolonising my own practice, amplifying Indigenous voices and supporting Indigenous communities in whatever way I can.
