Darjeeling has been studying tarot since 2011. She came to it in a rather roundabout fashion; her original interest was Jungian mandala creation and interpretation for self-analysis. The transition to tarot came naturally when she began looking for a tool that was more dynamic, responding to questions and operation on a more moment by moment basis. 

The more that Darjeeling worked with the tarot, the more she realized that this was an open-ended tool with the capability to help people not only reflect on how to move forward in life, but how to get to know themselves better as well. Teaching others about and through tarot is something that she enjoys a lot and has felt called to for a long time. Darjeeling is here the third Sunday of the month for the Tarot meetup, sometimes followed by one of her Tarot classes. Check the calendar for more information.

Jhada Addams has over eleven years as a crowned priestess of Yemaya in the African Diasporic religion of La Regla de Ocha/Lucumi, has been speaking with the dead since the age of 5 and started working as an active possesive medium/horse for spirit at the age of 17. Engaging with spirit in mild possession, she remains aware during trance, but her body and voice are actively used by spirit to both convey messages and heal people, as well as working in tandem to drive out negative entities from both people and residences.

As a medium working for a paranormal team in Pennsylvania, she has worked cases where heavy poltergeist activity had been reported and where the occupants of a building were actively in danger of being hurt. 
Her divination methods are both Diloggun (oracular reading by way of utilizing cowrie shells sacred to the Orishas) and Ancestral Bone Readings. She is available for readings on 1 or 2 Saturdays a month, check our calendar. Click here for her profile!
DILOGGUN: $70 The Diloggun is an oracle of sixteen sacred cowrie shells that are cast twice to generate one of 256 patterns, or Odu, each composed of two Letras (letters). This oracle allows the Orisha to communicate with the diviner to provide guidance and information to keep the client aligned on their personal path of spiritual growth.
Once the Odu/Letter for the reading has been determined, further questions are then asked in order to gain more perspective and information on the Odu/Letter cast. This is done through a series of yes/no questions, during which the shells indicate an affirmative or negative to the question posed. These questions determine whether the client needs to be made aware of blessings that are coming to them or if there are difficulties/obstructions that lay ahead. The source and nature of either is determined through the questions asked of the oracle by the diviner.
By the end of the reading, the client will have an overview of all the energies present in their life so that they are then better able to either move quickly to obtain the blessings laying before them, or to best avoid the obstacles or negative energy patterns in their path.
This is a fairly involved reading, and the client is urged to record the messages presented because of this. It is important for the client to follow the remedies given strictly and as quickly as possible in order for maximum benefit to be obtained.
Due to the intense nature of this type of reading, The Diloggun reading usually takes an hour, sometimes longer.
ANCESTRAL BONE READING: $30 Using a method based on Kongo cosmology, the Ancestral Bone reading is done on a colorful, patterned cloth, in which there are multiple sections. The diviner casts a selection of different items on the cloth, and depending on where the items land, as well as their orientation (whether they fall right side up, or down) the diviner is able to obtain helpful messages for the client about ancestral spirits that need attention, about possible obstacles in the client's life or beneficial things that are coming to pass that the client needs to be aware of in order to act upon them.

Shunka (formerly Loki) a multi-media artist residing in the Northern Virginia area where he enjoys exploring its woods searching for rocks to climb, ritual spaces to conjure up trickery, and conversing with the local flora and fauna.  You may find him in the canopy in search of a view or in the dirt pursuing insects and reptiles.  A creature of extremes, he also thrives while whizzing through NoVA's impossible traffic on his sleek yellow bike, Princezz Dye.

Shunka first fell in love with drumming while bumming around the charming town of Panajachel in his native Guatemala, with its majestic lake and imposing volcanoes,  he jammed on street corners with fellow fearie folk for simple chips and kicks. 

He has taken lessons with the great Kristen Arant in the marvelous art of the Djembe and accompanying West African Percussion and dabbles within the realm of other musical instruments.  The banjo, American Indian Flute, and Yadaki (didgeridoo) to name a few.  He is part of the Nen Daiko Taiko Drum Troupe apprentice program which is teaching him great discipline and getting him into tip top shape as he is looking forward to playing with them for many years to come.

With practice and experience he came to realize that all these drums, each with it's particular voice and character, were not just exquisite musical instruments but that they were also transcendent tools, each inhabited by spirits that have existed since the dawn of time.  For thousands of years they have moved humanity to gather and connect, to create, to heal, to communicate, to Love and Transcend.  

A spiritual thread connects us all.  When we drum, we create vibrations.  When we drum together, those vibrations fill us with the vitality of the group along with the infinite message of whatever drum one beats, whatever rattle one shakes.  When we drum together we are one with our own heartbeat and that heartbeat is shared with the group through the pulse of the rhythm.  The Rhythm then swirls and churns, then bursts out in spirals and fractals in every direction to fill whatever spirit it touches with the joy and love consecrated within the circle.

So won't you join us for some drum lovin', booty shaking fun.  First Friday and third Saturday of every month baby!  lets JAMMMMM!!!!
