Avia Venefica contends the universe and all its contents is a sacred energy that uses organic symbolism as a platform for expression. She actively pursues deeper meaning in life events (individually and collectively) and employs an archetypal, gestalt use of symbolic interpretation to gain insight into these life events.

This pursuit has lead her to study literature (i.e.: Jung, Campbell) and philosophies of varying cultures (i.e.: Native American, Celtic) with a goal to understand symbolic meanings using naturalistic (pre-industrial) perspectives.

"The Divine is always communicating with us.
Its language is symbolic." ~Avia Avia proposes, that by learning various cultural and archetypal meanings of symbols, we can utilize those meanings for guidance in solving real-life problems. Avia's writings and presentations come from her passion for sharing the potential of symbolism as a catalyst for self-development and collective awareness.

Avia has an undergraduate degree in anthropology and has been an understudy in several tribal and spiritual organizations. She is also the author of several published articles concerning esoteric wisdom, and makes herself available for public speaking/presentations on symbolic topics.

As a kid, if I didn't have my nose stuck in a book, I was outside - poking sticks at stuff, peeking under slimy rocks, gleeful at discovering some dark treasure (the creepier and crawlier the better).

Today, I'm still exploring, but instead of rocks, I'm flipping over every-day-ness to find symbolic inspiration hiding beneath common reality.
