High Priestess Bio

I am Mandrake, the High Priestess of Spirits Cauling York.  Our group operates more like a family than a normal coven so the title holds no additional power, just the responsibility of serving on the coven council, helping the daily runnings of the group and answering questions and inquiries about our group.

I am the coven’s 3rd degree Elder Priestess, I’ve been a practicing pagan since 1995. I am married to Fyrewulf and mother to 3 wonderful adults, and Nana to 3 amazing grandpodlings. I enjoy reading, writing and researching various topics.

My personal strength is crystal and stone magick and home and hearth magick.  I describe my spirituality as being an eclectic garden witch. 


I have academic degrees in anthropology and public history.  My future may hold additional academic pursuits but at this time, formal academic programs are in my past.

Feel free to contact me if you’d like to chat or need more information about our group. I can be reached at   Namaste
