Gringa Bruja
"This is where the magic happens"


Gringa Bruja worked great when the shop was open, but now that Two Sisters is a successful online store and things are moving forward quickly in other magical areas, I am working to consolidate information into fewer locations. Starting in May 2018, I am no longer updating this site. All information I would normally post on this site will now have a home at my primary website: Our Facebook page will also discontinue in the near future, so please check out our Two Sisters Botanica Facebook page and my personal Facebook page. Please change your bookmarks and transition with us during this exciting time! Free classes continue on our YouTube channels (linked up on and at LightWeavers in Citrus Heights, California.





Who is the Gringa Bruja?

Katrina Rasbold of Two Sisters Botánica began working in the magical arts in England in 1982. Since then, she has taught classes in Southern California, Idaho, and Central California. She lives in the Sierra Mountains of California in a secluded community and accepts speaking and teaching engagements as schedule allows throughout the year.  She has worked for many years as a Bruja, Rootworker, and Curandera in the Sacramento and Roseville, California areas.

Currently, she and her husband, Eric teach classes through Sovereignty Workshops in private homes and at LightWeavers Academy in Citrus Heights, California.

Raised in Kentucky, she is fluent in Appalachian and Ozark “Granny Magic” techniques and trained aggressively in HooDoo and Conjure in both African American and New Orleans based traditions. She worked as a Wiccan High Priestess for fifteen years.

Katrina and Eric are co-founders of the CUSP (Climbing Up the Spiral Pathway) spiritual tradition that is now practiced worldwide and is the subject of their book, CUSP: A New Way to Walk An Old Path.

Katrina is a devotee of La Santisma Muerte and Our Lady of Guadalupe. With thirty-five years of experience in divination and the Tarot, she offers video readings to her clients at affordable rates.

Katrina is a published author of more than thirty-five books including the popular Seven Sisters of Avalon novel series and nineteen metaphysical books, ten of which she co-wrote with Eric.  Their book Energy Magic held the #1 position on the Amazon best sellers list in the category of Neopaganism for eight weeks after its release. Her newest book, Crossroads of Conjure, released through Llewellyn Worldwide in January 2018.
