Intuitive Readings ⋅ Psychic Medium

She has had a lifelong love of all things metaphysical. Raised Catholic, her family was very supportive of her developing her “special talents,” knowing it came from her strong sense of faith.    Her first “gift” began to emerge through her prophetic dreams, and she soon began researching and developing her many other gifts and skills. She discovered she could hear spirits, Angels, and guides later in life. Her first encounter with a “spirit,” was her Grandmother, who was her greatest supporter in life. From spirit, her Grandmother requested she “get a pen and begin writing down messages.” She’s been doing automatic writing ever since. Now she connects clients with their love ones who have passed. Delivering healing messages of love, and confirmation our loved ones are always with us. She is a psychic medium, energy healer, Reiki Master, Certified Massage Lomi Lomi Therapists, and Certified ARCH Practitioner. She has a deep love of crystals and essential oils and has an ability to select the perfect stones for your highest good. Cheri is available for readings every Thursday from 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm.


Intuitive Readings ⋅ Tarot ⋅ Palmistry ⋅ Russian Gypsy Cards

She discovered her ability to tap into the world as an Empath early in her life. After learning how to successfully Shield, she was able to concentrate on connecting with others and tuning into their needs. In 2006, an enchanting deck of Russian Gypsy Fortune cards found their way into April’s life and chose her. Since then, several other delightful decks, including the Deviant Moon Tarot, have followed suit. Her tools (or as she calls them, “co-workers”) include both the Russian Gypsy and Deviant Moon decks, along with her pendulum and a fun version of the Rider Waite Tarot deck. If you’re not looking to have your cards read, April can just as easily read your palm. A skilled palmist, April reads both hands: dominant for your present life, and non-dominant for your most previous life. No matter which method you choose, April always makes sure that her guests have an engaging, entertaining, illuminating, and often surprising and uplifting experience with her. Both your comfort and privacy are of utmost importance. April is available at Alchemy and Ashes every Wednesday from 12:30 pm to 6 pm, and the 3rd Saturday of the month.

Intuitive Readings ⋅ Celtic Ogham ⋅ Tarot

Jennifer Williams discovered her intuitive abilities at a young age. As part of a family with strict religious beliefs, she practiced and honed her skills in secret through meditation and lucid dreaming with the help of animal guides. When she began reading Tarot at age 16, she realized she had found a way to direct her intuition outward to help others find their way through challenges. She also began reading the Celtic Ogham (OH-um) or “tree alphabet,” a set of wooden staves, each connected to a specific tree and the wisdom it holds. This earthy and highly intuitive reading method now shares a sacred place alongside Tarot. Jennifer is dedicated to empowering and healing through Tarot and Ogham, delivering messages with deep respect and gentleness. Jennifer is available for readings on Fridays and the 4th Saturday of the month.
