Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki is one of the most respected and experienced esoteric practitioners currently at work in the British Isles and beyond. Dolores was born in Channel Island of Jersey off the coast of France, where she still lives with her husband. She was trained in the Fraternity of the Inner Light and worked as a Cosmic Mediator with Walter Ernest Butler. Dolores is a third-degree adept and Qabalist. She not only teaches the Craft but also is the current director of the Servants of the Light, a Hermetic order descended from Dion Fortune’s Society of the Inner Light. She travels extensively, teaching a wide range of occult subjects to pupils in both the U.K. and the United States.

Successor to W E Butler and present director of studies of Servants Of the Light, author of several books and correspondence courses, she is a third-generation psychic sensitive and a highly trained Cosmic Mediator. Her teachers and mentors were the late C C Chichester, Warden of the Society of Inner Light, and W E Butler. She travels extensively all over the world keeping in touch with Supervisors and students of the school. She writes, lectures and holds workshops.

She has the ability to communicate with insight, knowledge and the passion of conviction in her chosen field, which, combined with her down-to-earth sense of humour, has made her a welcome visitor to many countries.

One of her most valuable contributions to modern occultism has been to focus attention on the use of Pathworking as a training tool and she is acknowledged to be one of its foremost exponents. To date she has written 17 books and designed the SOL Tarot Deck with Jo Gill and Anthony Clark and the Shakespearean Tarot with Paul Hardy.
