On the 26th of May from 10 am until 4 pm, in the Avalon Room at Glastonbury, the Wise Women are gathering. The daughters will be bringing to you what our Motherline has taught us, and we would invite you to share your stories and wisdom with us all. If you thought the sacred natural healing powers had been lost in the mists of time, you might find this event will change your mind. We are fighting every day to keep our Craft alive, against the might of the multinational pharma companies and the colluding government. Recently our rights have been once again curtailed, find out what that means for us as a nation and as a people. Time is a spiral and the days when wise women were persecuted for their knowledge is returning. This time it is red tape rather than red blood that binds us, the earth heals us and yet we are forbidden once again to accept and pass on Her gifts.
Our first Key Speaker is Tylluan Penry from Wales: Bendithion!
Tylluan Penry is a solitary pagan witch, independent scholar, publisher and the author of numerous books and magazine articles dealing with many aspects of magic, paganism and folklore. She has also been a popular and regular speaker at various events including Witchfest International, The Artemis Gathering, Witchfest England and Witchfest Wales, together with talks for local groups and the Pagan Federation, and at independent, private events. She is regularly consulted and interviewed by the media for advice in accurately portraying witchcraft and paganism.
Tylluan believes strongly in trying to help other solitaries and those just beginning on their spiritual path. To this end she set up The Wolfenhowle Press in 2011, with the intention of making beautiful, informative and inspiring books about paganism widely available and affordable.
Tylluan is married, has a large family, grandchildren, many pets, an overgrown garden and a gloriously ramshackle house where she lives and dreams with Mr Penry, her love of many lifetimes, in the South Wales Rhondda Valley.

Magical and ritual herbs
At the conference I will introduce you to some of my favourite ritual herbs and we will discuss the plant itself, medical and magical properties, as well as proper and safe use in a ritual setting, exploring indigenous traditions and stories with each herb.
I am looking forward to take part and share my experience on the conference.
