More beauty. More spirit. More love.

Moana Meadow is an interfaith minister. She has been a birth doula, a hospice chaplain, and she considers herself a good witch. She works at the edges of life, death, earth and prayer to bring you to your own magic. She wants you to sing, play, and die well. And she can help you do that.



Moana believes each person is essentially whole and healing.  The snags and blocks that prevent our lives from flourishing are small obstacles that can be eased through with love and awareness.

She works with each client to discover their resources, strengths, and pathways to a richer, fuller life.  This might happen in the form of one-on-one sessions in her Wildcat Canyon Yurt, with clients sharing as Moana guides them deeper. 

It may come in the form of a group ceremony, such as her Women’s Moon Series, or a wedding or funeral.  Or it may happen in the form of a day-long or even weekend-long retreat, incorporating many kinds of work for deeper healing.

Each client chooses how deep they want to go, what they are ready for, and how they want to use Moana’s many resources.  She works for you—keeping you safe and building a bond of trust that serves your deepest healing.

Moana Meadow and RiverHER STORY

Moana Meadow was born in Hawaii to vagabond parents.  She rebelled by becoming a minister.  In recent years, her vagabond inheritance has revealed itself, and she has begun weaving the sacred with the profane.

What does that mean? It means the grit and shadow of our lives—the loss, grief, fear, and shame—is as important and beautiful as the joy, love, peace, and bliss.  Learning to commit to both sides of life—the dark and the light—is the effort of being both spirit and mortal.

Moana’s work has followed the arc of birth and death, marriage and betrayal.  She  honors the growth and truth that emerge from our full lives.  Moana lifts the veil so her clients can see their own strength in the face of trauma, grief and rage.  She continues to meet herself and her clients deeply in response to life’s unfolding.
