Mother. Music. Magic. Mystic. Medicine. Matriz. Moon.
Alexandra Blakely is a Jewitch, Scandinavian, English singer-songwriter, storyteller, solutionary that walks the path of ancestral healing and the reclaiming of lost cultural memories. These journeys are braided into her music. She lives between Duwamish Territory (Seattle, WA) and Tenochtitlán (Mexico City) and dedicates her life in service to holistic healing. It is through her own adversities that she explores vulnerability and accesses the interdependence of all life. She searches to fill intergenerational holes with rooting. Her music, filmmaking, storytelling and beyond focuses on moving through stagnant manifestations, whether they be on individual or societal levels, by going into the darkness and building fires. Her movement pulses with anti-oppression practice, power-with collaborations and animist relations.
She has trained in the work of Joanna Macy, sound healing, and majored in Comparative History of Ideas at the University of Washington where she studied colonialism. She is currently skilling up in ceramics, death doula and grief work services and reconnecting with her Jewish ancestry via Kohenet Hebrew Priestess Institute.
"The maximal of our ecstasy soars - as deep as we allow ourselves to walk through our own darkness,
just as tree branches will only extend as much as their roots ground within." -Alexandra Blakely
