Jessica Gazzola

Jessica (she, her, hers) is a catholic priestess tracing her spiritual lineage to the Mary’s surrounding Jesus (the Magdalene, his Mother, Mary & Martha). The sacredness of dirt, food, and a warm hearth track through her Italian and Polish heritage. Her calling to the priestess path is a dynamic unfolding. It reveals itself most plainly these days in tending life in a blended family and exploring the wildness of her own soul.  Jessica is called into the threshold places where humans transform – through the fires of birth, grief, eroticism, healing, and the milestones that mark our lives – offering the fire and balm of Sacrament & ritual.  In her free time, she can be found with her chickens and children tending their community orchard.
