Ravenmoon is an ordained priestess with Fellowship of Isis, and Temple of Isis in Los Angeles. She has received charter for her own Iseum, “Iseum of the Nubian Moon,” A house of gathering and learning of the Divine Feminine and Ancient Mothers. She Facilitates ‘Goddess Tea and Inspirations’ every two months, in which a different presenter is hosted.

Ravenmoon is 62 years young, a Grandmother, and Great Grandmother— and she teaches self esteem through the beauty of this dance. Anniitra calls her unique style of teaching dance “’RAVENS ROUND THE CLOCK” method. Ravenmoon leads by example that you are never too old to feel good, and empowered.” Her home is in Long Beach.

Also, Ravenmoon likes to refer to herself (lovingly) as “The Urban Power-Goddess”.
Ravenmoon’s grandsons tell their friends, “You don’t have a granny like I do!
She’s a knife-collecting, staff-wielding, drumming, chanting, Belly dancing granny!”

“I’m not your average Grandmother!!”
“Its all about the way you feel about yourself”
“Attitude is everything!”
Come Dance With Me!!!
