FIND BALANCE WITH CARMELA OBSCURA
"I am my family's greatest migrator:
They traversed the sea, fought colonization, endured segregation, earned citizenship and sacrificed too much- worked too hard for me to NOT be great."
Carmela Obscura (she/ella) is a regenerative alchemist in Oakland, CA.
Carmela is a 1st-generation Afro-Filipina born of Memphis lineage and a generational Babaylan.
Her foundation of alchemy stems from generations of gifted Conjure women, Babaylans and upstanding matriarchs of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade, Aboriginal America and Austronesia.
Her creative disposition and adolescent awareness of alchemy and metaphysics guided her through successful ventures in dance, pastry arts, nutrition and herbalism.
In work, she’s stratified as she is meticulous: these acquisitions and unfavored perception of Western medicine were later integrated as platforms to fulfill her purpose as an embodied healer.
Thus far in the path, she’s earned mastery in Reiki, certified herbalism, walking between worlds/mediumship, Somatic & Breathwork facilitation, psychedelic cyphers and alchemical sound performances.
