Meet the WDA Team!

Updated: Sep 15

The World Divination Team has been working together providing quality content for the divination world since 2014. I fondly refer to the team as the WDA Allstars, because they incorporate everything that makes the divination world incredible. Years of study under their belts, dedication to their chosen tool and elbow grease to provide courses, events, and mentoring at reasonable prices for the international audience. The WDA Team are simply ALLSTARS.
