for love + justice
Kalli blood x bone is a portal for the ancestors + a sacred canto to remember our old ways.
Their breath enlivens us + they speak holy words- we are the answer to their prayer
…and for justice.
la bruja behind blood x bone
Kalli Maestra ~ Nahua Tlachixqui ~Decolonial Spiritist
The locus of my craft is personal + collective liberation.
Like most who engage with the numinous- I’m curious to find out what can be created when we explore relating with more-than-human kin.
I’ve been living into the answer for 20+ years professionally….and exploring since I was a kid.
Oh, one more thing….Ixchel is pronounced ee-shell. You’re welcome.
you should know
We talk about things that others may deem taboo- politics, war, money + social issues– because I believe it’s my responsibility as a spirit worker to address real shit going on in people’s lives.
I’m all for love + justice, not #loveandlight.
I center bodies of culture in this kalli.
We don’t do ascended masters, empath culture, high vibe tribe, sitting in merkabas, or talking in light language here. You can literally find that anywhere else on the internet– not here.
tldr: I’m not into New Age spirituality.
Extraction of black + brown folx’ ancestral practices is no bueno.

I’ve been a student of Calli Ocelotl Totonaca for 20+ years under Elders Maestra Tonantzin Lobos + Tata Juan Carlos. I accepted the commitment to carry the lineage in 2019.
I also acknowledge the teachers of shorter term training I’ve had in mediumship, divination, western astrology and magic- Bobbi Langdon, Fabeku Fatunmise, Jason Miller, Sonia Choquette, John Holland +Benebell Wen.
++ I had been trained in Usui Reiki many years ago. Since then I have learned of the whitewashing + inaccuracy of the western Usui Reiki practice. Please visit the teaching of Marika Hamahata + her course, Decolonizing Reiki.
