H E L L O

NYC native Audrey Dimola is a Practitioner of Living Legend, alchemical artist and poet, event curator, sacred space-holder, youth mentor, and impassioned advocate for education and access to alternative modalities of mental health care. Audrey’s rich experiences with Nature and the more-than-human world, ceremony and ritual, and the True Self’s spiritual and mythopoetic depths helped her reclaim and save her own life, and she vows to continue assisting others in walking between their own worlds and edge-spaces.

She has self-published 4 books, performed in venues both intimate and massive around NYC including The Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, LaGuardia Performing Arts Center, and Brooklyn Museum, and has nearly a decade of experience curating and hosting countless multidisciplinary arts events and working creatively in diverse communities. Since 2016 she has planned, provided, and managed a vibrant array of ever-expanding free public programming with over 150 partnerships for world-renowned waterfront art-space, Socrates Sculpture Park, in the beloved Queens neighborhood where she grew up.

She is an active proponent of radical vulnerability; transformational leadership; trauma-informed safe-spaces; sharing a kin-centric relation to All Things (animal, plant, spirit, human); peer-centered, holistic alternatives to traditional narratives; the healing power of looking inward instead of outward for guiding wisdom; and the vital importance of moving through these revelatory days with deep reverence, self-awareness, humor, and compassion.

Naturally emergent while heeding the soul’s calls of initiation, Audrey’s unique yet deeply rooted methods and modes of practice have been developed, honed, and explored through innate spiritual faculties and extrasensory perception, wilderness work, intuitive sense, lifelong artistic pursuits, and many years of on-the-ground experience, both person-to-person and in service to community and the environment. She is currently continuing her mythic studies and delving into new realms of Ecopsychology/Ecotherapy.

You’ll find all her past and present work at this online home, as well as new blog posts. Poetry, prose, videos, events, photos, articles – it’s all here… !!

i have known within myself, since i was a child, that there are worlds within worlds within worlds.

i have been drawn to the spirits who walk between them– mercury/hermes, especially, The Messenger.

and i accept fully in this moment that i too am Psychopomp– a guide of souls into their depths.

all these years– especially the past five– of living so close to, and inside, the very real possibility of my own death. inside the want for it, along the edges, within these liminal spaces i felt would literally decimate my very being– and nearly did.

But I Am Here. I Am Still Here. and my dual-pronged experiences of “mental illness” and spiritual/shamanic awakening are no mere coincidence or by-product. Walking These Worlds are what i’m here to do– and i want to Walk Them with You, too.

i state here for the first time my dedication to what has arisen as my own unique practice– but rooted in the depth of collective unconscious, archetype, myth, spirit, symbol, living poetry, and eternal wisdom. i am a Personal Legend Practitioner. i play with the prima materia. i live in alchemy. in the effortless creation, the back + forth and in-betweens.

the rest of my life– will continue to be my unabashed coming out party as wise + wild woman, priestess, warrior goddess, divine feminine conjoined with sacred masculine, messenger, magician, healer, channel, guide.

WHERE CAN WE GO, TOGETHER?
YOU TELL ME…
