Carole Carlton

Carole Carlton is a writer, speaker and workshop facilitator in many aspects of Pagan practice. She is a clinical Aromatherapist, herbalist, Reiki Master/Teacher for the UK Reiki Federation and has lectured in the Far and Middle East and many parts of the UK. 

She is proprietor of ‘Mrs Darley’s Herbal’, a herbal and Pagan giftware shop in Bewdley Museum in Worcestershire, where, in addition to a wide range of loose leaf herbal teas, oils and incenses, her husband handcrafts bespoke athames, staffs, wands and pyrographed artwork.

The books skilfully weave together the theoretical aspects of Paganism with delightful tales of the enigmatic, magical and ever wise Mrs Darley, Carole’s next door neighbour when she moved to a tiny tin miners cottage on the South Eastern edge of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall back in the early 1990’s. The seventh book in the Mrs Darley series has recently been released, entitled, ‘Mrs Darley’s Fragrant Herbal  – A Planetary Journey into the Aromatic World of Herbs, Oils, Resins and Spices’.

Ruth Llyn Cogan

You and I have a kindred connection to the heartbeat of  the Great Mother  if you were never happier as a child flying a kite on a blustery hillside watching the clouds dance by, or catching tadpoles with a net made from nanny’s stocking, or enjoying long summer days returning home purple-stained and happy from picking berries for a pie, or watching a buzzard soar, or being in awe of the beauty and tenacity of the first snowdrops in spring, or being totally enthralled by dancing flames in the hearth at Yule.  Such an abundance of pure joy and beauty we receive on our Island of Albion.

For me, eventually the hustle and bustle of life and motherhood receded, and then in one moment, in a sunny woodland glade breathing in all of nature, something arcane stirred within me.  Listening to the whispers of the Divine Spirit, I knew that a new path lay before me or was it simply a remembering. 

And here I am a student of life and spirituality, a witch, holistic therapist, a Priestess Healer and Priestess of Goddess Cerridwen.  I am privileged to be a founder member and Melissa Mother at the Bristol Goddess Temple serving a wonderfully diverse community, where we hold various groups, workshops, healings and seasonal celebratory gatherings. Merry meet!
