I have been a witch since the age of 15 when I realised I wasn't a special child of God, but a witch that was just very good at manifestation. Roll on 40 years and I am proud to call myself an eclectic witch following the ancient ways and bringing them into modern times. I was tasked by the Great Mother to set up a coven, "Coven of Gaia" and then her festival, "A Festival for Pagans & Witches" tasked to teach and help people on their path. Happiest when I am in my herb room or with my head in a book extending my knowledge.
I have always been interested in the pagan path and became a witch in my late teens. Growing up I always seen and spoke to spirit and it was in my early 20s that I started to work with them. It was thanks to spirit and mothers guidance I found my magical family. I continue to work with spirit and my main job with them is helping spirits cross over into the light. My witchy path is eclectic but has a strong link to spirit realm
My path started at a young age but only recently has it been realised. The “phase” my Dad thought I’d grow out of is stronger than ever now I’ve found my place in the pagan community. My coven aren’t just my friends, they are my brothers and sisters, my family. I owe a lot to my coven for the knowledge, confidence and skill they have given me in. I love all aspects of the craft, knowledge about lots but a master of none. I enjoy running rituals and writing spells and have a flair for tarot. As an art and craft person I like to use these skills to help others and have designed logos and artwork for some of my coven family. One of my favourite parts of coven life is the festival, seeing people happy and enjoying such a holistic and supportive atmosphere, always a great weekend seeing old faces and new. I’d encourage anyone with any interest in paganism or witchcraft to attend the festival and workshops to help guide their path. The friendship and support that the community have for each other is intoxicating, it helps people to thrive in all aspects of life. Live my life treating people as I wish to be treated, with respect and kindness.
