Ancestral Healing

In the Pacific Northwest


Take a break from your daily life and get to know your ancestors.


Come explore at Rancho mPondo, a retreat located just outside Olympia, WA where South African shamanism, Native American herbalism, and ancient indigenous healing practices blend together for a tribal respite.

The Team



I am a healer, diviner, and facilitator of indigenous practices. Since 2019, I have studied South African Shamanism (iSangoma) and I continually incorporate tribal traditions and ceremonies. I'm also a trained bookbinder and run Sound Leather Books, a bespoke bindery.

Jenn Zahrt

I am an author, publisher, editor; astrologer, translator, artist; fluent in German & astrologies since 1998. I runĀ Revelore Press, Sophia Centre Press, and The Catapult Zone. I oscillate between Seattle, WA and Bristol, UK.


Dagny River

I am a force of nature, born and raised in Cascadia. I'm laid back, spectacular, and determined. I find joy in building bridges between others. I'm a laughter yogi who has studied with Joe Hoare in Bristol, UK. & a facilitator of regenerative healing modalities.
