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’m excited to bring my Canna-gella Oil to Mi Gente at Magic Makers again this year. I am also excited to bring medicine earrings & fresh harvested ceder bundles.
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.
Right now & for all of of October I am in Boriken/Puerto Rico as a resident healing artist for a grassroots organization in Rio Piedras. Yesterday I facilitated a queer new moon circle & today I am offering limpias to the community. I will also be spending some time harvesting plants that can only be found here in the caribbean. I plan to use some of these plants to offer healing sessions for queer caribbeans in the Bay Area.
My visions continue to be rooted in healing, nature & ancestry. I want to see my people walk their talk, walk with integrity, support each other when things are tough, stand in their truth & speak it out loud!
Come meet the Maker at Magic Makers on Saturday Dec 1st!
