in memory of Doreen Obituary
for
Doreen Valiente
Me and Doreen in her flat during one of my visits to her home on a hot summers day
If you light a candle for Doreen, please make it a purple one and annoint it with patchouli oil. Her favourite colour and scent.

On Wednesday 1st September 1999 at 06.55 am, Doreen Valiente passed into the Summer Lands in her home town of Brighton. There are few who had met her who did not find her unassuming, modest, and unpretentious. There were many reasons for her to be the opposite though. She was (and still is) the mother of one of the fastest growing religions of the later 20th Century - Wicca.

Her books have introduced thousands to the concept of the Goddess for the first time, as well as the joys of a fresh spirituality. While many who had done far less had donned titles, her humility prevented her from ever using a title such as 'Queen of the Witches'; but she more than anyone was responsible for it's growth, it's poetry and beauty in it's ritual.

And in her own words (From the Charge of the Goddess):

"I am the Gracious Goddess, who gives the gift of joy unto the heart of man. Upon earth, I give the knowledge of the spirit eternal; and beyond death, I give peace and freedom and reunion with those who have gone before."

May the Great Goddess Indeed welcome her with open arms. May she be re-united with those she has loved. She will be sadly missed by all who practise the Old Religion.

(Obituary written by : Janet and Stewart Farrar and Gavin Bone.)

A simple family service has now taken place. Doreen requested that anyone wishing to send flowers should instead send a donation to the Centre For Pagan Studies of which she was Patron, and that a list of those kind enough to send money should have their names published and a book of commemorative letters should be displayed at the Centre. Please respect her wish for the privacy of those she has left behind at this time.

There will be requiem service in the future organised by John Belham-Payne either at the Centre or somewhere in London. Those that would like to attend 'A Day For Doreen' should send a stamped addressed envelope to The Centre For Pagan Studies (CFPS)--

"Charge of the Goddess"
By Doreen Valiente

"Doreen Valiente, the Mother of Modern Witchcraft, is an acclaimed author in her own right. She rewrote and edited elements of Gerald Gardner's Book of shadows and is largely responsible for Wicca becoming the fastest growing religion in the Western world. Just before Doreen died on the 1st September 1999, she requested that her poems be published. Here, for the first time, together with her magical artefacts and memories from friends, is a tribute to a great lady who gave, and is still giving, so much to the Craft." Introduction by Eleanor Bone
