Helena van El
Author, educator, mediator.
The occult is Helena’s life-long passion. She has been influenced most significantly by Aleister Crowley and Dion Fortune, philosopher Colin Wilson, and witchcraft of a Left-Hand Path persuasion.
She has been a practicing Astrologer for over 20 years, and regularly teaches and presents at occult-related events and conferences. Her work revolves around the themes of existential meaning, Will, and death. She lives and works in her forest sanctuary known as Allhallows. She is a contributing author to PILLARS: The Scalding of Sapientia, PILLARS: Circling the Compass, and is now writing a book on the topic of the Left-Hand Path (all under Anathema Publishing Ltd).
Helena is also a specialist in conflict resolution and a professional mediator. In this field, she is a university professor and author with a focus on the creative arts industries. She has co-authored Conflict Resolution for Musicians (and Other Cool People); Keep the Drama in Front of the Camera: Conflict Resolution for Film and TV; and Conflict Response Roles Inventory: the Book.
Helena holds a BA in Religious Studies, an MA in Human Systems Intervention, and is currently completing a PhD in Conflict Studies.
