Magic is the act of changing reality, sometimes subtly, sometimes dramatically. One of the most important parts of magic is to remember that as one changes the outside world, the inner world must also change.
Iris Meredith Bell has been with The Raven's Wing since the doors first opened in Oakland years ago. She adores the freedom of making her living in the world of magic. Combining her enthusiasm for mythology and spirituality, crystal studies, tarot and astrology, Iris looks forward to work everyday. Now, in the Portland shop, Iris is excited to help her neighbors in the Sellwood area make magic happen everyday.
Iris has studied witchcraft and tarot for more than 25 years, first learning from her mother and earning a third degree High Priestesshood in the Evensong Tradition of Eclectic Wicca. Iris is a veteran ritualist and while living in California, Iris helped produce hundreds of rituals for groups of anywhere from 5-200 attendees. She has academically studied religious and secular philosophy, theatre, and feminist theory.
Iris is is happy to help you put together workings for you to do at your own altar. She loves to share stories and myths that have helped her on her path. Her favorite part of running The Raven’s Wing Magical Co. is finding the perfect story, song, crystal or herbs for a customer’s needs. She is so proud of the way both the Portland and Oakland stores are showcases for local artists and makers to bring their unique magic to the world.
As a Tarot reader, Iris is intuitive and kind, offering insight into the present moment and help with decisions for the future. She sees tarot as a language for understanding the self, allowing us to speak directly to our subconscious mind. Iris loves in person readings, but has embraced technology and can do distance video or phone sessions as well.
