Raven Runyan, The Wyld Witch

Lady Raven (White Thunder Bear) is a Witch and Third Degree High Priestess, Spiritual Herbalist, Vodouisant, and Modern Day Medicine Woman. She is the HPS of the Coven of the Wyld Moon and co-founder of the Wyld Path Tradition in witchcraft. In 2006 she launched her brand of spiritual herbal products called Raven Moonlight Botanicals, which grew so quickly that in 2013 she opened a retail brick and mortar store in Rock Hill, SC (Raven Moon Emporium) to better support her customers and students. In 2020 she became an Otter Dance Practitioner. She has been practicing Witchcraft for over 20 years and has had training in Shamanic practices, Haitian Vodou, and Reiki. She has been teaching since 2007, and it is always her first love. Her goal is to help each person to grow in their unique and individual spiritual path and find peace, harmony, and fulfillment in life!


Brandy Winn, Otter Dance Co-Founder

Brandy Winn, the Cajun Mystic, is an apprentice to Robbie Warren, Otter Woman Standing. She is a teacher, healer, and an Earth Medicine Ceremonialist. She is, at heart, a true Cajun: fun-loving yet driven, kind, and hard-working. Her love of education and learning prompted her to pursue an MBA, a journey that created her first opportunity for international travel. In China, standing atop The Great Wall, Brandy had an epiphany that led her to begin a more personal spiritual journey, and her life’s purpose was planted: her pursuit of spirituality began. Her many travels throughout the world have connected to the core of her being and ignited a deep and abiding sense of service to Mother Earth and Humanity. After a transformative trip to Burundi, Brandy began her journey with Robbie, first helping mold the inner organization of the burgeoning Otter Dance community. Next, she became a student of Earth Medicine, taking the step of apprentice to Robbie to deepen her practice. Her sense of Service then took on a new dimension: that of a Healing Practitioner and eventually Teacher. She also stepped into the role of International Coordinator for The Fire Dance, forging relationships and paving the way for so many Ceremonies abroad. Otter Dance has continued to grow, with her and Robbie working side by side to build the community it is today!
