Eva Yaa Asantewaa
Founder Radical Magick / Metaphysical Counselor & Author

Eva Yaa Asantewaa can trace her family roots in spirituality and the paranormal back to her maternal grandfather whose interests included astrology, yoga, Theosophy, magnetic healing, and mind science. ("I never knew of my grandfather's early studies and activities until after his death when I inherited many of his old books," she says, "but obviously, it's all right there in my DNA!") A native New Yorker of African-Caribbean lineage, Eva maintains a private practice that includes Tarot-based counseling, channeling, shamanic journeying, dreamwork, energy healing modalities, and meditation coaching.

While studying at Fordham University where she received her B.A. in Communications (1974), Eva was introduced to Jungian psychology and the "mind games" techniques created by Robert Masters and Jean Houston. She also studied Community Health Education at Hunter College School of Health Sciences and received the Hunter College President's Award for HIV/AIDS Creative and Scholarly Work, First Prize, 1992.

Through Radical Magick (formerly Spirit Crossroads, which she founded in 1992), Eva has produced and facilitated workshops and special events sponsored by nearly 45 health and social service, spiritual, feminist, people of color, and gay/ lesbian/ bisexual/ transgender organizations in the New York metropolitan area. Among these are the New York Open Center's Womanspirit Journey program, New York Theosophical Society, The Tarot School, College of New Rochelle, Healing Works, Rivington House, New York State Conference on Women's Health, Riverside Church Wellness Center, Women's Health Education Project, and Women's Rites Center.

Eva conceived and wrote the text for "Alter-Altars: we hold divine space within our bodies", performing it with actor Alex Fisher and dancer-choreographer Nadine Helstroffer. She later collaborated with Ms. Helstroffer on "The Labyrinth Dance" and "We Are Creatures of The Wilderness". Eva has performed poetry and trance meditations with drummers Bernadette McGowen and Panamá.

Eva's poetry appears in The Zenith of Desire: Contemporary Lesbian Poems about Sex (ed., Gerry Gomez Pearlberg, Crown, 1996), Does Your Mama Know? An Anthology of Black Lesbian Coming Out Stories (ed., Lisa C. Moore, RedBone Press, 1997), Queer Dog: Homo Pup Poetry (ed., Gerry Gomez Pearlberg, Cleis, 1997), Isis Rising: The Goddess in the New Aeon (ed., Denise Dumars, 2000), Brooklyn Review, Kuumba, Starfish, WV, Tempus, The Isis Papers, and the Pegasus Dreaming, Star Leaper, and Pedestal Magazine Web sites. She has read at numerous venues including the Brooklyn Museum, the Lesbian and Gay Community Services Center, and A Different Light Bookstore, including three collaborations with dancer-choreographer Nadine Helstroffer and trance meditations with drummers Bernadette McGowen and Panamá. She has completed her first collection of poetry, your weight on other worlds.

Since 1976, Eva has published dance journalism appearing in Dance Magazine, Soho News, and The Village Voice, among other print and online publications. She has interviewed performing artists, choreographers, and artistic directors and evaluated dance organizations for the New York State Council on the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and other arts funding organizations. As a WBAI radio broadcaster (1987-89), she worked with the Women's Radio Collective and the Gay and Lesbian Independent Broadcasters Collective (OUTLOOKS), and co-hosted the Tuesday Afternoon Arts Magazine with Jennifer Bernet as well as producing her own specials. Eva publishes DancingWorld -- www.yahoogroups.com/group/DancingWorld -- a biweekly eNewsletter devoted to Tarot, psychic and spiritual development, and creativity, founded in January 2001.
