Welsh Witch Val Hughes is High Priestess of the Oswestry Coven in a small town at the Welsh border of Shropshire, England, and has been a practitioner of Alexandrian Witchcraft for over thirty years. She ran covens on the Druid isle of Anglesey before returning to Oswestry to found the coven there. In addition to her background in Alexandrian Witchcraft, Val possesses a wealth of experience in Welsh witchery, hermetic arts, ritual magic and public ceremony and, in her professional life, worked as a behavioral psychologist, which helps her to understand the keys that open the hidden doorways of the mind. Her training focuses on encouraging personal development in each priest and priestess that they can discover their unique connection to the source of life and magic. Val is a dedicated priestess committed to teaching seekers that Witchcraft is both experiential and beyond mere book-learning.
