Sorita d'Este is an author, researcher, and priestess who has devoted her life to the Mysteries. She is the author of numerous books on both the practice and history of magic, plus mythology, folklore, and witchcraft. In late 2000 she cofounded the StarStone Network with David Rankine, which was dedicated to the study of Initiatory Witchcraft, Ceremonial Magic, and the Mysteries of Hekate. With him she coauthored Hekate: Liminal Rites, a compendium of magical practices historically associated with Hekate. With contributions from students, friends, and practitioners from around the world she compiled Hekate: Keys to the Crossroads and Hekate: Her Sacred Fires. In 2010 she wrote the Rite of Her Sacred Fires, a simple devotional ceremony which has become a worldwide annual celebration in honor of Hekate, celebrated at the Full Moon of May each year by many hundreds of people and now translated into thirty languages. She is also the Keybearer and founder of the Covenant of Hekate (hekatecovenant.com). Sorita lives on a hill in Glastonbury, where she works as a publisher and writer. She is often distracted from work by her son, her love of gardening, and interesting visitors from different spiritual and esoteric persuasions.
