With 28 years of walking the path of witch, I have crafted my work with clarity and accuracy and driven to share it with as many who are open to receive it. 



That's my business statement above from me to you.


 And here's a little more...

Everything that is meaningful has lost it's importance in the white wash of marketing and the oppression of patriarchy. Our earth is seen as a commodity not as a living being. The magic and mystery of life, the depth of what love really is seems to be what many people are searching for and trying to understand. The oppression is growing. It feels like suffocation and a yearning for genuine connection with both people and land. 

The only way to breathe and create profound change through this suffocation is to stand in what's real. Mystery is real, and where there's mystery, there's magic. Earth is real. Breathe and take in both, let it be your first step to returning home. 

Come back to your roots


My work is dedicated to our Mother the earth and my beloved ancestors. I am here to support the wild women of the earth. You can read about my commitment to you below - to the women of the wild.


With my love always women,

There's more to say at the end of this statement. Fuck things evolve and all of that, and I'm going to give it to you honestly right below this.

Witch to witch

I am witch. I support and assist woman to enter and navigate the mystery,  the wild loving darkness. I am devoted to our beloved Mother Earth, and I share this:

My work is powerful, deep and transformative, it’s not for everyone. I’ve been teaching women how to reclaim their power and heal for 21 years, and children for 16 years. I believe it’s one of the many things I am here to do. I began walking the feminine mysteries when I was 19, and this is where I really started to ask questions no one around me would. When it came to spiritual teachings and practices, I watched people take on blindly what they were taught, and I could not, because I knew inside myself what was truth and what was not. Not a popular track to take for anyone that has the courage to ask questions that most people are afraid to contemplate. Working with women is very natural and knowing to me. I’ve gone much deeper than most, and trust me when I say there’s fuck all fluff here.

I work with women on the edge of enough, or on the edge of finally choosing herself. I work with women wanting to deepen her relationship with self and earth with the primary focus of reclaiming her ancestral roots.  I work with women who want to confront their own personal shit head on. I work with women that are not afraid of the truth, and not afraid to live it. I work with women that are not afraid to be liberated and seen. I work with women who want to transform over and over again. I work with women with integrity and self respect.

My work is honest, and not a lot of people are ready for truth and honesty.

If you feel the pull to work together I give you truth, honesty and support to empower and assist you to navigate through the mysterious world of you, so you can walk your knowing and fuck off oppression once and for all. I will teach you to make friends with fear, and teach you to navigate and understand your emotional body which holds the patterns of self sabotage and assist you to find your purpose that is found when you reclaim your ancestral roots. I will support you to rip the chains off and be the person you are… nothing less will be given. I teach what I live.

I am a qualified counsellor, art therapist and permaculturist, but I’m not here to use these qualifications in the way I’ve been taught (besides permaculture), I am here to liberate and show women how to return home to themselves, and although these qualifications have taught some things, it comes nowhere near to what I have learned through my own knowing as witch, and my strong connection to spirit and earth. This gives my work the depth and uniqueness that many seek but many cannot put into words.

I am a woman who remembers so I have no time for bullshit. Come to me with no expectations.

With love,

Astara Lak’ech


That statement above still stands BUT not for all women.

I expect the women who approaches my work to have experience navigating their inside world, and be an active intersectional feminist with the consistent practice dedicated to unthread white privilege and racism. I expect the women to approach me to be dedicated to our mother within her life and earth practice - all of the above is a given for any earth practitioner, to carry herself with integrity and respect. I expect her to hold experience and know herself well enough that she is not living toxic behaviour which seems to be so entwined within the so called witch 'community.' To understand and know what witch is, a knowing that should be in your bones that you do not chase the glamour of false power with on and offline connections that have no problem culturally appropriating. It is not the falseness and aesthetic it's become to be with fuck all essence and realness. I expect you woman to know this, otherwise I am not for you and I have no problem letting you know this too.   

I am a woman of colour who remembers. Come to me with no expectation of who you think I am and a fuck tonne of respect and integrity for all life or don't approach me at all.

Decolonise and fuck the patriarchy, it's killing us all.
