My name is Maritza, I’m a proud bruja (witch), activist, and consultant, heading a global company on transformational practices, the happy holder of 3 passports as evidence that the nation state is a fantasy, and a hopeless music and dance addict.
I was born and raised a witch in Chile, with strong magical influence from both Indigenous (from Chile) and Italian witch lines.
I was initiated by my grandmother Nora Ilda Chiavegat Núñez, and have practiced my whole life. Since moving to the US when I was 18, I have studied as a solo practitioner, with a coven in upstate New York in the late 90’s, and with the Reclaiming tradition in the SF Bay Area for about 17 years. I am not currently a member of a coven, but I am the High Priestess for a handful of solo practitioners.
I am a communications expert with 30 years of experience in emotional growth techniques, spiritual development tools, spellcasting, healing, ritual, intuitive readings, Reiki, shamanic work, vision quests, past lives, constellations and the tarot.
I’m also known as Lunasol to some other witches, but in my other life as Maritza Schafer, I co-founded WiseBridge, where I work as a Communications and Organizational Consultant.
All of these things inform my writing about what it will take for us to live decent lives as individuals and save the species as a collective.
