We are honoured to welcome Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki as the first Magickal Women Conference’s headline speaker. Dolores has been a leading respected esoteric practitioner for over 50 years and continues to share her knowledge with students in Britain and around the world. Dolores trained with Walter Ernest Butler, himself a member of Dion Fortune’s Fraternity of the Inner Light (est.1928), making Dolores part of a living magical lineage within the Western Mystery tradition. Dolores succeeded Ernest Butler as Director of Studies of the Servants of the Light (SOL) in 1976 and served for forty-two years.
A renowned British occult author of seventeen books, she has travelled the world tirelessly since 1970s, delivering seminars, lectures and practice workshops. In 2018 Dolores retired as Director of SOL and launched her Solar Light Video Club, through which she continues to make available her many years of accumulated knowledge to a worldwide audience: she has a passion to communicate with great insight and plenty of good humour.
