I have had the privilege to be the Village Wisewoman of St Buryan situated in the wilds of West Cornwall for over 30 years. In March 2010 I retired from full time employment and I thought I might find time for a well-earned rest – I should have known better! People from my community and further afield still contacted me when they needed help and I slowly realised that it was well nigh impossible to ‘retire’ as a village wisewoman – it’s a job that continues and will only stop with my demise. For those that require it there is more information on my website: www.villagewisewoman.co.uk
I was ‘made in Cornwall’ but was adopted as a small baby and brought up in East Anglia, and it wasn’t until the death of my adoptive parents in my mid twenties that brought me back to my homeland once more. Shortly after and following a sequence of bewildering events I dedicated myself to the Old Ones and have explored and studied the Old Ways and listened to the heartbeat of this ancient Land ever since.
Here’s some footage filmed by Open University about the sort of work I can do. 🙂
