My birth name is Patricia; however, I use my spiritual name of Sidonia Nightsky.  My linage is hereditary witch, pagan, and my ancestors are Bohemian/Irish.  The environment I grew up in is where my intuition and appreciation for nature were encouraged, and nurtured.  Misunderstood as a child, I often spent a great deal of time alone and close to nature relating with the spirit world, making allies and friends.  Spiritís call was strong; some family members could see that I had calling, and encouraged me to practice my intuitive abilities.  Others perceived me as strange because of my lack of interest in conventional possessions, and their ideas of a normal childhood.  This eventually, led me to pursue intuitive arts, and tarot reading. 

Spirit remained an influence in my art, and the call of Spirit finally led to my shamanic studies.  I would visit the Edgar Cayce Center in Virginia Beach, Virginia where they had an extensive spiritual library reading everything I could find.  Sarangerelís book ďRiding WindhorsesĒ and Michael Harnerís ďWay of the ShamanĒ, among others, just ignited the fire more.

Bekki Shining Bearheart, LMT, and Crow Swimsaway, PhD were guest speakers at The Gathering of the Tribes, in Virginia, where they spoke of shamanism and working with allies.  It was here I began study with them.  During 2006 to 2007, I took an intensive series of courses offered through the Mystical Attic, and completing the Intensive Training at Dragonís Waters in October 2007. 

 

Currently a Minister and Teacher of the Old Religion, I am also the mistress of Hawks Landing Retreat Center.  Combining shamanic skills, with other healing modalities allows me to work more closely with the spirit of the land, my ancestors, and plant spirit allies.  My training through Bekki Shining Bearheart, LMT, and Crow Swimsaway, PhD helps me to establish clear channels to the otherworld teachers, and I have established relationships with otherworld allies.  Iím facilitator of two Shamanic Womanís Circles, dedicated to the Maiden Mother and Crone, where women can network, share, and feel safe.  The two groups are dedicated to women working with spirit, learning how to grow and transition through life with their personal power; I believe that all this came about through my own transitions, and trust in spirit.  Connecting the linage (fire in my head), with the teachers and allies wanting to channel their power.
