Finding beauty in imperfection and celebrating small moments is Alison’s way. At 17, Alison received Level 2 Reiki Attunement in the Usui tradition of Reiki, and began studying Aromatherapy. By 21, Alison was licensed in Esthetics, completed her studies of Aromatherapy, Spa treatments, and received Medical Esthetic Certifications. She continuously studies the Arcane Sciences, Tarot, Qabalah, Ayurveda, and Yoga and is enrolled in the Yoga and Ayurveda Immersion Program at Borealis in Medford, MA. In Alison’s Tarot work, she brings humor and comfort, and incorporates her strengths as an empath and healer who can understand many people. Readings are aimed at invoking change in consciousness, leading towards what’s happening inside and not the outward appearance. As a healer, she combines Reiki with color vibration, and aromatherapy- and sometimes, crystal energy to create a supercharged healing treatment, in a beautiful way. You will leave smiling and grateful. Alison has studied with Gerri DeSimone at Circles of Wisdom in Mediumship Development, The Fraternity of the Hidden Light, and in numerous discussion groups, at the Theosophical Society in Arlington MA.

Melissa Vieira has been reading tarot for friends and family for twenty years and recently dived into professional reading in 2019. She loves to teach her clients about energy clearing and the importance of positive thinking. Crystals and energy work have been a passion for years. She is also a novelist and loves to use her style of storytelling in her readings to paint a complete picture. She loves being able to guide clients in the right direction with a mix of cards and a little bit of uncontrolled (so far) mediumship. While it’s very new to her, she plans on developing the mediumship abilities further to help clients. She uses a variety of decks in her freestyle type of reading and occasionally a cuss word will come out so she only reads for adults 18 and over.
Student Tarot Reader and Spell Caster
David is occasionally a scientist, often an artist, and always a storyteller. As an archaeologist with a specialty in osteology and human/animal relations his research interests focus on human mythology and how animals are often co-producers in how we view ourselves and tell stories. He is trying to blend his scholarly and mystic interests while remaining fair to both.
His tarot experience began when he found his grandmother’s Rider-Waite-Smith deck and is a wave that he continues to ride. While surfing he has acquired a handful of decks, learned from books and a few teachers, and gained a stronger sense of animism than he initially thought possible. It has been a life of beautiful synchronicities and lucky saves guided by a lot of intuition and listening. His readings are a cooperative search for where we have been, where we are, and where we can guide ourselves through operations designed around the questions at hand. There will be decks to choose from and plenty of conversation for tarot nerds.

As a child, Maria believed that magic was real she just didn’t know how to find it. After many years of spiritual searching, Maria finally found her magic in Reiki. Now a Reiki Master, she wants to share the beautiful, healing energy of Reiki with everyone who needs a little magic in their lives. As an empath and healer, Maria is exploring a number of different modalities, including Shamanic meditation and reflexology. She is currently in the process of receiving the gift of the Rites of the Munay-Ki, and will soon move into the study of mediumship. Maria feels that the experiences and opportunities to learn are the most enriching for our lives. Be sure to ask her about the wonders of a facial massage with a Kansa wand!
