People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive
— Joseph Campbell


Welcome to Circle Magica: Wild Magic Life.  I am Deborah Fay, tender of this space and am a shamanic and magical arts practitioner, member of the Sisterhood of Avalon, blogger and mixed media artist. Central to my orientation are  deep ties to the natural world and recently, I've advanced my relationship with permaculture and Celtic Spirituality studies and practice. 

 For 30 + years I've been involved with the healing arts: as a massage therapist I owned a holsitic health center, with a clientel that included notables such as members of the Kennedy family; as a Reiki Master I 've taught therapists, parents, pet owners, lawyers, architects, areobic teachers, yoga instructors, personal trainers and more. I've brought the art of shamanic journey to youth groups and staff, to women's circles, couples and individuals.  Many womens' and drum circles and intuitive development gatherings, as well as creatvity classes have been held. Private healing and intuitive consults were offered. Art For Your Heart offered mini-collaged canvases and Soul Essence Portraits, plus a number of projects featured in craft industry publications, and the Magic Apothecary; aromatherapy and herbal formulations. 

 In 1998, I became a mother, and my True North shifted so that I blended work around motherhood. Now, Niko is a sophmore in college and my husband, Steve, and I, empty nesters.  Another round of reinvention is underway. Read on below to learn of the many ways you and I can currently pathwork together and take a look at Work With Me for a full menu of personal and group session descriptions.  I'm happy you are here.

Circle Magica is an online and brick and mortar sanctuary. Everything offered through CM is intended to help you connect to your sovereignity, that truth who knows who you are wired to be in this world, and to provide you with sacred tools to go out and be that. At the core, is real life, what I describe as our Wild Magic Life. It is the way we most want to live and feel most ourselves when we do. We remember this place with helping powers of the healing arts, esoteric teachings, and foundational influences of beauty, nature, spirit and story. You will encounter kindred to share the journey and find a safe nesting place that shelters you and empowers you to sink roots back into the fertile realms of Self, aliveness, purpose, and joy. 

We are also home base for  Of Root & Raven Wing's Diary of an Earth Daughter -a travel blog of unique stories and interviews and a new initiative coming soon- a repository of woman voices, speaking from all walks of life and perspectives and telling their tales of seeking and discovery,  power claiming, creativity, spirituality, transformation.  

  And lastly but not leastly (!), I partner with the hubs in video productions of all kinds at Merrimac Media Group, LLC. We work with broadcast, corporate, sole proprietorships, individuals. We can help you create promotional, marketing, instructional, interdepartmental, even web series based pieces. 

As of this writing, we live in the Little House, bordering the suburban wilds north of Boston.


Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you
