Wendy Berg has studied and practiced for some 30 years in many aspects of ritual magic, spirituality, mythology and esoteric Christianity. She worked with the occultist Gareth Knight, leading his magical group for 14 years, and with Dion Fortune's Society of the Inner Light. She focusses now on writing, with the purpose of bringing out the inspirational wisdom in esoteric material and making it more accessible to seekers of the ancient Mysteries.

Wendy has an especial interest in the Faery race and its relationship with humanity, particularly the significant Faery presence in the Arthurian and Grail legends. She has written two books on this subject: Red Tree, White Tree: Faeries and Humans in Partnership, and Gwenevere and the Round Table.

Wendy feels a deep connection with the spiritual beliefs of ancient Egypt, and having been inspired by many visits to Egyptian temples has written a study of the hieroglyphs which explores their function as magical symbols. The House of the Net: the Magical Symbolism of the Hieroglyphs demonstrates how in addition to forming an alphabet of letters and words, the hieroglyphs can be used as a meditative tool that brings about changes in consciousness.

A classical musician and photographer, Wendy is currently writing about the mythology and beliefs of early China.
