Dorn Simon was born in the ‘oldest recorded town in Britain’, the Pre-Roman town of Camulodunum, now known as Colchester in 1968. (The earliest record of the town’s existence is a reference by the Roman writer, Pliny the Elder in AD77).
As a child poet, it wasn’t long before her alternative beliefs would manifest; a knowing, yet only a few terms to identify that knowing, at such a young age; sadly most of those terms denoting a derogatory impression, words such as Witch, Heathen; and the term Pagan, which was being used to describe NO Religion! Nonetheless, that is the path Dorn travelled…
Dorn is a Torchbearer in the Covenant of Hekate, with current interests in Pre-Hellenic cultures worshipping Ἑκάτη, and learning the Hellenic Calendar.
Spiritually, Dorn is a Priestess in training, in the Fellowship of Isis, where as a Consecrated Adept, founded an Iseum dedicated to Hekate/Ἑκάτη and Hermes; Chartered by the FOI Founder Lady Olivia Robertson, called the Iseum of Hekate, Phosphoros, Soteira and Psychopompe Hermeneus.
