My work focuses on self-compassion,


and discovering the mystery

in our everyday lives.


priestess-on-the-shoreHello, I’m Vanessa Sage, and I’m so glad you’re here!

I have a PhD in Cultural Anthropology, and spent a good decade of my life thinking I was going to be a professor. But the thing is, I wanted to do this instead! So, I left what was safe and stepped out into the complete unknown.

At the core, everything I do is about: 

  • Finding deeper meaning and connection
  • Discovering a sense of wonder and awe in the everyday
  • Embodying a deep acceptance of oneself as powerful and beautiful

I offer spiritual and business mentorships, priestess training programs, and tarot readings to help you enchant your everyday, bring your imagination to life, and listen to your wild soul’s calling!

My Aim is that You Experience:

  • A real felt sense of belonging and worthiness
  • A greater experience of peace and purpose
  • An increased connection to self, others and spirit
  • Deep healing that comes from your own empowered knowing
  • Confidence in yourself!


I’m a soft place to land in a world that tries to tell us we aren’t lovable or worthy.



  • Vaness Sage Speaks in FlowersBlue is my favourite colour.
  • I don’t feel like myself without blue streaks in my hair.
  • Lavender, sage and salt air are my favourite scents.
  • I adore flowers but can’t seem to grow them or keep plants alive.
  • Poetry is my first love. I not-so-secretly wish we lived in a world where poets made as much money as lawyers. Pass it on!
  • I don’t have my driver’s licence. Sometimes I think I skipped a step into adulthood but who I am I kidding I have a hard time not looking up at the sky when I’m on a bike!
  • My first fieldwork experience was when I was an undergrad, and I decided to go to Glastonbury to study Goddess pilgrimage. I published a paper on my work, and presented the research at Cambridge University. That was pretty neat!
  • I once proposed to do my graduate work in England on how spirituality takes material form in trees, crop circles, stained glass and ruins. I still want to do that research.
  • In a former life I was a stage manager, and co-founded and managed a successful Shakespeare in the park theatre company.
  • I’ve also trained as a Neuropsychology coach and taught Insight Meditation at a Yoga studio.
  • I’m super goofy, have an ironic sense of humour, and I offer tea and cookies (virtual or otherwise) whenever I can!
  • I’m a TOTAL tarot geek! In the over 20 years I’ve been drawing cards, my deck collection, love and passion for the tarot just keeps growing.
  • Along with being a Buddhist with a deep love of the Goddess, my spirituality is an undefined Earth Path (and I like it that way).
  • I started drumming just after my 40th Birthday because I didn’t want to get to the end of my life and only wished I had drummed. We’ll call my drumming intuitive. Really, it simply brings me joy.
  • …And Kermit the Frog is my hero. Seriously, he was the first dreamer to come into my life and say that dreaming is worth doing. Plus, he’s a bit of a worry wort which made me feel normal. Feeling normal when you really feel green is great!


I believe listening to your inner voice is everything!

“This woman, this Priestess, knows Love as a force and has

the gentleness and wisdom to share in a way that all can benefit

in whatever way one needs.”

“To say working with Vanessa changed my life is a bit of an understatement.  The teaching Vanessa offers and the way she holds space has healed my soul and brought me back to myself in so many ways.” -Love Letter Reader
