My name is Lara Veleda Vesta and I am an artist, writer and educator living in Oregon. My explorations include dís-ability, initiation, ancestral mythology, ritual and the sacred creative.  I am the author of The Moon Divas Guidebook: Spirited Self-Care for Women in Transition, the Moon Divas Oracle, The Runic Feminine (forthcoming, 2021) and the creator/facilitator of many courses including CIRCLE: Healing the Witch Wound, The Art of Self-Initiation, The Runic Feminine, The Power Class and Ancestral Connection.  I live with Myalgic Encephalomeylitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.  Prior to my illness I was a university professor teaching classes in English and writing, completing my PhD in Women's Spirituality at CIIS.

I offer art, writing, rituals, classes, rune readings and more on Instagram and via Patreon.
