MAKER SPOTLIGHT: Atabey’s Rising Tides

RaheNi Gonzalez is a two-spirit Taino Boricua who makes Sacred Medicine and Art

RaheNi has spent the past 20 years focused on healing and learning how to transform trauma, fears, chronic illness & suffering into beauty, love and a higher consciousness.

“When I make medicine & art, which in my eyes, are one in the same, I call on the realm of the spirits & ancestors that walk with me. It’s a prayer, a meditation on truth, healing & beauty.”

I make “Canna-gella oil.” Great for pain, inflammation, anxiety & insomnia. Made with organic cold pressed coconut oil, organic cannabis (Indica dominant) & nigella flower essence for spiritual & emotional support. Can be used both externally & internally.

I also make medicine earrings made with feathers that have come to me through spirit meaning I do not purchase them. Feather earrings are traditionally worn for protection.

I also work with clay & am planning on making a few Zemi’s for this event. Zemi’s are ceramic/stone figures that represent the ancestors of my people, the Taino. I also plan to make at least a dozen clay pots for burning medicine.

My visions continue to be rooted in healing, nature & ancestry.

Come meet the Maker at Magic Makers on Sunday Dec 10th!
