Chiara Symens-Bucher


    Chiara is a mama bear, songstress, and student of Celtic ancestral ways. She believes in the power of witnessing youth, affirming their mythopoetic identity and honoring the unique gifts they bring to the world. She grew up in the Fruitvale district of Oakland, a fifth generation settler on Lisjan Ohlone land. She has spent the last many years in her childhood home, which is now an intentional community called Canticle Farm; an intergenerational, intercultural, interfaith community working to heal systemic oppression. These days Chiara can be found in the wilds of Mendocino playing and exploring with her 2-year-old Rowan and husband Chaise, getting excited about birds, and trying to spend time crafting beauty with her hands as much as possible.
