Author – Speaker – Energy Weaver – Modern-Day Priestess
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always been interested in spirituality, the occult and the mysteries of life (and beyond). I was that strange little girl lurking in the library with arms full of books on topics everyone else seemed to avoid.
I didn’t find witchcraft until my late twenties (quite by accident).
As life was busy imploding, my spirit found a kinship with witchcraft. We’ve bonded well ever since but in the past five years or so, I’ve moved more towards shamanic practices. This has been inspired by my research into historical witchcraft and an intrinsic belief that the roots of European witchcraft are found in northern European indigenous shamanic practices. Hard to prove as the history of witchcraft is murky and heavily influenced by the Christian views of the times. Nonetheless, it’s a belief that sits well with me.
As a lifetime book nerd, it was only a matter of time before I put pen to paper and wrote my own books.
My first book, The Inner Goddess Revolution, was snapped up by O-Books and published in 2015.
I self-published Goddess Rising in 2017. Apart from the final editing, I completed every step of the book publishing process myself. I created the cover, designed the interior, sourced my ISBN, created the ebook versions and, of course, wrote the book.
I’m also a holistic coach & therapist (spiritual coaching, Reiki, hypnosis, past life regression therapy, and all sorts) but I’m most passionate about EFT (emotional freedom technique). I’ve seen magic happen in front of my eyes with tapping: pains vanished, past-life traumas cleared, limiting beliefs banished and phobias disappeared. It’s powerful stuff.
I am a multi-creative type of person with fingers in a few pies.
Some days, you’ll find me at the Quiet Rebel Bureau helping budding mind-body-spirit authors to self-publish, designing or revamping websites (I’ve been doing this since the internet was a baby), designing book covers, writing, or editing.
Once a month, I co-run an online women’s circle – 13 Moons Women’s Circle – with my friend Allison Marlowe.
I’m a keen amateur photographer with a love of seascape and landscape photography. I mix photography with graphic design at the Soulscape Studio.
I designed and self-published my own oracle deck – The Sea Whispers Oracle – and have a tarot deck in progress – Wisdom of the Depths Tarot.
Other things about me?
I love to cook (and eat). I’ve been a vegetarian since 2009 but upped my game to a plant-based diet in 2015.
My superpower is unravelling knots. I will spend as long as it takes to unknot string, wool, chains, or whatever. I’m good at undoing figurative knots too.
I live in a small seaside town in north Wales with my husband and daughter but part of my soul eternally remains in London, my birth town. My favourite tree is in Avebury and my favourite door is in Winchester. You do have a favourite door, right?
Lyn Thurman is the author of The Inner Goddess Revolution and Goddess Rising. She’s the founder of the Inner Goddess Circle (an online group that ran for 6-years) and the creator of the Sea Whispers oracle. With her interest in the divine feminine, she takes the gifts of the goddess – creativity, healing, nourishment and intuition – and blends them into her business, coaching, and life.
She lives near the sea on the north coast of Wales with her family in a house heaving with books and a ridiculous amount of tarot decks.
