When I was a teenager I was astounded to discover that there were once many Goddess-centred cultures around the world of which I knew nothing! Thousands and thousands of years of culture which had been suppressed or passed off as ‘primitive’ – I was shocked, outraged, and excited, keen to know more. This was the beginning of a detective mission to unearth this hidden information and reclaim my birthright, my power, my inspiration.
I had always thought of myself as a witch without really knowing what it was all about; other people also labelled me as a witch (I have the classic archetypal witch appearance!) and since childhood I have had lots of psychic experiences. I started reading the tarot aged 14 and had many dreams which later came true, including being given addresses in my dreams of places I had never been, but in later years would find myself there.
I moved from the city to the country, which helped me connect with this beautiful planet, and I met two older women who acted as guides in this new terrain. I lived more and more simply until I was living in a tipi or bender, for several years. This gave me a wealth of experience of the natural world and constant deep connection to the earth.
I have been involved in many women’s groups for the past 35 years and highly value the sisterhood that brings.
I have been married for 24 years and have a daughter born in 2002.
I place great importance on following my heart and my art; my creative life is absolutely vital to me, be it writing, painting, singing, ritual, performance. All these aspects of my life I feel are put to good use as a workshop facilitator and celebrant, and I love meeting new people and sharing with groups.
