Mirna McWilliams

Mirna McWilliams


Mirna gratefully makes her home at Earthaven Ecovillage near Asheville, NC, on the traditional ancestral lands of the Eastern Band Cherokee and Catawba, where she is held by the flowing waters, lush mountains, corn, and tobacco, learning what it means to live together in Village, and to weave it.  She is a lifelong artist who has spent many years of study and practice in various lineages of theater, dance, and music, now turning these capacities toward the possibility of healing, liberation, and cultural transformation. 

As a deep feeler and holistic thinker, she finds herself learning from a diversity of teachers — human and non-human — and playing in many different pots.  Over the last several years, she has apprenticed herself to ritual, plantcraft, cooking and food ways, grief, storytelling, dreams, music and song, conflict, communication, and language.

Mirna spends her days tending to her hearth, heart, and relationships, catering nourishing local food for groups, singing, and showing up for ritual and the magic and alchemy of togetherness.  In all that she studies, offers, and practices, she is devoted to moving through the complexity of these times in the spirit of prayer, pleasure, and deep play.
