We’re excited to be working with ancient magic expert, Flavia Kate Peters, on the campaign for her book, Reclaim Your Dark Goddess. We asked Flavia our 5 questions to find out more about her, her book, and her vision:
1. Pitch in 10 - sell us your book in less than 10 words
Transformation; the gift of the Dark Goddess awaiting you now
2. Audience of One - If you could choose ONE person to read your book who would it be and why?
This book is for anyone who has been through devastation lately - anything from heartbreak, divorce, or job loss to losing a loved one, home trouble or even the impact of a pandemic.
This witchy survival kit will help them navigate, understand, and transcend the Dark Night of the Soul. This book is a journey that will take them through Darkness. As they meet the Dark Goddesses responsible for each stage, they will uncover their own shadow side, embrace their inner dark traits and heal through magick and ritual - to know themselves fully and to be healed, whole and TRANSFORMED.
3. Behind the Book - Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Many years ago, I was guided to leave my husband in pursue of my life purpose - to help others to grow spiritually. I was led far away from my loved ones to a place where I would grow in many ways. However, what I did not realise was that for me to grow and know myself fully, I was forced into a situation where I eventually didn’t recognise who I was anymore. I felt completely isolated, suffered bad mental health and depression. In my misery I became overshadowed by an energy. It was strong and powerful. The Dark Goddess, the instigator of the Dark Night of the Soul, gave me promises of transformation.
At first, I was taken on a Dark journey until I lost myself. I then worked with the Dark Goddess in ritual and magick in a bid of rescue. On completion, and after keeping notes about my experiences I felt led to write a book to help others understand what the Dark Night of the Soul is, how to recognise the archetypal behavioural attributes of each Dark Goddess who instigates the nightmare to bring one down to their lowest ebb, and how to survive the sacred darkness.
4. Guess what? Tell us one thing that readers might be surprised to hear about you.
When I was a little girl, I could hear the angels singing and would meditate next to trees. I grew up in the woods and used to play with the Fairies. I also played witches and I’d tie my friends up to trees and make pretend potions. I used to dance for the Fairies in the woods and make up fairy dance routines. My mother ran her own Dance Academy, and I became a fully trained ballerina and tap dancer. When I was 13 years old, I successfully auditioned to play Louise Von Trapp in the stage version of the Sound of Music and went on to star in many musicals across the U.K. such as Lily in Annie, Val in a Chorus Line & Bonnie in Anything Goes. I also used to regularly entertain the troops on stage at their bases. At the age of 32, I quit the theatre to focus on all things magical.
5. The next chapter - what’s next for you?
I have 10 books and 10 oracle decks out there and am always busy writing and promoting at shows, events and on social media. I’m giving ‘Reclaim Your Dark Goddess’ talks at covens, festivals, and events this year, including at Witchfest International to promote the book. I shall also be giving talks and appearing at the Faery Fayre, Glastonbury and the Mind Body Spirit show, NEC in October. I’m also a Rockstar Witch - I sing with Daughters of Gaia. Next gig festival for pagans and witches in September.
Meanwhile I’m also promoting my latest oracle Deck ‘Oracle of the Witch’ (out Oct 22) and the 2023 Witch’s Diary. My next writing projects are the 2024 Witch’s Diary and ‘Elemental Witchcraft’ book. Life is for living your dream.
