Ayah Buonaugurio is a passionate facilitator of Hatha Yoga, Sacred Dance, and founder of Obsidian Womb Wellness & Embodied Path of the Priestess, working as a Women’s Health Advocate in the S.F Bay Area California. She’s a legally ordained Priestess of Isis & through the FOI (Fellowship of Isis) as well as Ordained Minister through ONACS. Through the container of women’s rituals & events, Ayah educates, supports and advocates women allowing them to feel empowered to make informed decisions concerning their health in alignment with their cyclical natures.
Since 2009, Ayah has worked closely with the obsidian stone through prayer, dedicated practice, and transmission from Mexico-Nahuatl grandmothers through the participation of the Danza de la Luna of Ollinthuimetzli in Mexico. Prior to working specifically with the obsidian egg for healing the womb, she has spent over 10 years devoted to a feminine lineage in Mexico that taught her how to utilize a sacred obsidian pipe on behalf of praying for her life. Ayah thereafter discovered the obsidian egg, and began to apply ancestral shadow work, balancing & womb healing. Ayah received transmission through personal vision & practice as well as guided instructions from experienced practitioners that live in Durango, MX. She teaches a specific protocol that originated from teacher Ana Silvia Serrano who founded an organization in Mexico for obsidian therapies.
Ayah has contributed to the growth and nourishment of local communities by facilitating dance classes for at-risk youth, ceremonial dances at sacred pilgrimage sites, woman’s womb wellness programs, as well as individual and group healing rituals utilizing obsidian therapies.

Grateful for the medicine played out and the guidance of beloved Ayah. She has an apprenticeship program that I highly recommend if you’re ready to clear trauma! 🙅🏾♀️ The toxic intensity was part of the healing, transformation and integration. My intention in working with the obsidian crystal and during a time of “celibacy” was to give birth to my sovereignty in an ancestral and self loving way. The unveiling is happening as I continue to shed! 🐍🦋🌹 #obsidian #ObsidianYoniCrystal#Celibacy #9months #10MoreDays

Completed year long !
“After completing a year-long protocol with the obsidian egg, I can say this is truly, truly life-changing work. It is profound and deep and mystical. The obsidian has an intelligence all its own, it really truly is a teacher and a technology. It allows us to connect with the Earth, with the Feminine, with the deepest subconscious aspects of ourselves that are asking for healing – both in our personal lives and in our lineage. I experienced a lot of breakdowns to breakthroughs over the course of this year, and was able to reclaim parts of myself that I honestly did not even know I had lost. I am in love with this work. I recommend this protocol whole-heartedly to any woman looking to go deep into herself and her healing. I cannot speak highly enough of the obsidian egg work and this protocol. Doing it for a year allows the egg to really work with you, to let the unfoldings of your unique personal journey truly reveal themselves. I found a deeper sense of peace in myself and my path in the world, profound healing of old traumas, and a deeper sense of self-trust and self-love. I’ve been able to transform the stories of my shadow selves with more grace and strength than I imagined possible. I’ve been humbled yet held up, discovering courage and wisdom in unexpected places – and on the other side, I find myself stepping into an entirely new chapter of life, on pretty much every level. I am about to start another year-long protocol, to continue deepening in what has been revealed. “ Karina Allison, Bend OR
Graduates of level 3
“After a year of practicing with the obsidian egg, I can definitely say that I’m in a better place than where I started. I find myself being able to be much more truthful with my partner and open with him in our intimate relationship. I took out an IUD so that I could dive into this practice, and I’m glad that I did. My moon cycle has become very regular, lighter, and more manageable. I definitely feel more connected to my womb, my cycle, and my desires since starting this work. It’s a big commitment to make and a lot of work, it wasn’t always easy or enjoyable, but I am really pleased with where I find myself in this present moment.” Jenna Weitzman, Santa Cruz, Ca
