Welcome To Datura Press
Datura Press is a small esoteric publisher, dedicated to making quality occult works available to the public, while treating authors like valuable human beings.
Datura Press was launched in 1999 with the Tarot Tip Sheet. We had no aspirations of being a publisher back then. Honestly I just wanted to publish my own work. Apparently the gods had other plans!
In 2007 Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki approached me about making a book out of a collection of her poetry. We sold it at her workshops. The first run didn’t even have a UPC code! Then there were the short stories, and now the Servants of the Light Archives.
Along the way Alan Richardson (expert on Dion Fortune, among other things) joined the Datura Press family, as well as the acclaimed author and teacher Gareth Knight.

|The Mystical Hexagram: The Seven Inner Stars of Power, By Dr. G. Michael Vasey & S.C. Vincent.
Foreword by Dolores Ashcoft-Nowicki. Some symbols are so common that we stop seeing them. This book will show you new ways of seeing and working with the hexagram. Besides the detail explanations, there are exercises to help further your understanding.
|S. C. Vincent is a Yorkshire born artist, writer and award winning poet. Much of her inspiration is drawn from the inner realms of dream and vision, that strange reality whose symbolism haunts the edges of consciousness. She also has a deep love of her native land replete with the myths and legends that are echoed in her work. (www.seersart.co.uk).
