Hi, I’ve been part of the Pagan Federation’s Disability Team since 2016. My role includes offering support and advice to disabled pagans and anyone interested in overcoming the barriers that prevent the full inclusion of disabled people within the pagan community. I have lived experience of disability, trained as an Occupational Therapist and works for a national disability organisation.

I have identified as pagan for several decades and trained as a shamanic practitioner. I run a small private practice combining the conventional clinical knowledge of Occupational Therapy with the ancient wisdoms of Shamanism.  If you have any queries relating to my PF role or the Disabilities Team generally please don’t hesitate to email me.

Hi my name is Pia. I'm just going to give you a little bit about me. I'm a clairvoyant medium, that's my day job, I’ve followed a pagan path for a long time but I didn't even know I'd followed it, it seemed to just come natural to me, then I met my mentor, Sue Russel, in Lincoln in the 80s, she helped me find my true path! Sitting in circle and witchcraft came later too.
 
I fell in love in the late 90s & moved to Daventry, I was very quiet for 10 years while I brought my hubby's kids up, and then I moved to Long Buckby, where I run my circle and small groups. I'd always put on a little gathering for both solstices every year as I was a solitary witch, but felt the need to gather them up on a summer and yule solstice. After many years I just couldn't fit everyone in the house or the garden, and so to say I looked for a hall to do it in.  

So running up to this I seemed to find even more people that wanted to come, so I decided to start a coven. I called it *witches of the wharf * - I still run the Facebook pages. This was a little place I run and it was great for a year; we did workshops, moots, events but the people wanting to use it as well as me didn't want us witches using it, after I did so much work to it after a massive samhain celebration there they forced us out after I had 45 people come to our events they didn't like it! So we left there after a long struggle to keep it, and to this day it looks sad and lonely and only gets used about once a month by the parish council & polling station; they lost out on lots of money from rent, their loss, but as us witches do onwards and upwards.

I run coven and moots from Daventry & Rugby with the girls there are about 12 of us, 5 elders and some new people. I also go to Wolfstone in Blackpool & help on camp as I’ve had my wicca initiation in to hare and moon coven! It was so lovely, we're a happy bunch of witches as to say!  We welcome all paths to moots, we are always looking for speakers and Dems too,  thanks Pia
*  I'm very happy to be the Daventry Co-ordinator for our district  BB to all *
