Born on November 1st, it was in Zehara's destiny to walk the path of the Shadow world and non-traditional forms of spiritual practices. Originally from Boston, Massachusetts, and a fourth-generation witch, Zehara draws deeply from her life-long study and practice of several magickal and spiritual traditions, including, but not limited to Gnosticism, Hermeticism, Ceremonial Magick and Shamanism. Additionally, Zehara has been scrying and doing intuitive card readings since her early teens and learned Russian folk magick from her grandmother.
Zehara is a former student of The Sacred Magick of Ancient Egypt and a former member of Temple Harakhte run by Rosemary Clark. In 2002, via synchronicity, Zehara met Balaam Ben Solomon and joined The Temple of the Seekers, a Witchcraft/Ceremonial Magick group based in West Roxbury, MA. In 2004 she was initiated into the Temple. Well versed in the Goetia (Lesser Key of Solomon) and the Kabbalah Zehara’s knowledge of both Celestial and Infernal spirits has served her well in her practice and research of both the Occult and paranormal. Furthermore, Zehara has taught multiple classes on serpentine mythology and magick, enhancing intuition, spirit communication and has also created a comprehensive ecstatic dance and trance workshops. In 2012, Zehara was called to Voodoo after a dream of a White Serpent, a practice which has brought her closer to her ancestors. Zehara is currently a monthly contributor to Witch Way Magazine and published her first book "Grave Spirits" which discusses her work and research with working with the Dead. With over 20+ years of experience in the Occult, Zehara started her own Mentorship program in the fall of 2020 to help new Occultists on their chosen paths. Zehara's love for anthropology and primitive art has been an inspiration to Zehara since childhood. Zehara loves bones! Working with natural bones and imbuing her various studies in the occult and magick, Zehara creates one of a kind unique pieces. Her jewelry often encompasses vertebrae from various animals and each piece has a spiritual significance. Zehara also incorporates her ball pythons shed skin to many of her pieces including adding it onto her hand painted coyote skulls, tarot boxes and paintings.
