Meet Vivianna Severance

Vivianna Severance brings over two decades of Tarot experience, nurturing a journey that extends from passionate exploration to professional guidance in Tarot circles and instructional settings. Her approach to Tarot transcends traditional boundaries, emphasizing deep personal connection and intuition development—a passion ignited after years of undervaluing her intuitive abilities.


Raised amidst a heritage of strong women who adhered to the societal expectations and religious customs of their time, Vivianna’s early environment was framed by Catholic practices and clandestine spiritual rituals, including her great aunt, who was a secret Tarot reader. It wasn’t until Vivianna embraced her first Tarot deck in her twenties—years after her great aunt’s passing—that she began to unravel her gifts.


Today, Vivianna Severance is the proud owner of Wild Raven’s Nest, a boutique wellness center nestled in Terrell, Texas. Here, the essence of her journey—a blend of spiritual heritage and personal discovery—flourishes in a community where “woo meets country.” At Wild Raven’s Nest, she offers a variety of services that embody her dedication to fostering intuition and spiritual wellness. These services include intuition development classes, yoga sessions, and a unique metaphysical store, all designed to nurture the mind, body, and spirit. Additionally, she provides healing services, creating a sanctuary for those ready to explore and embrace their inner wisdom. Vivianna’s work continues to inspire and guide individuals on their own paths to self-discovery and holistic health.

Kristen Rud is a visionary community leader who has dedicated her life’s work to walking with women through holy rites of passage and the sacred daily mundane. She began her studies in early childhood education and intervention, learning about alternative methods for healing and the importance of understanding psychophysiology for overall well being and homeostasis. 

Throughout her twenties, she experienced a series of synchronistic events that led to the foundation of her own community-based wellness programs- including unique movement classes, healing retreats, leadership programs for women, birth support and one-on-one mentorship.  Kristen is currently serving the women and families of the Temecula Valley in Southern California while she attends a traditional midwifery school.
