Maxine Sanders was initiated into the Circle of Witchcraft in 1964. The High Priest of that Coven was Alex Sanders, known throughout the world as 'King of the Witches'. Maxine and Alex were Handfasted in 1965, and legally married in 1968.
The Sanders became household names during the sixties and seventies, dramatically bringing Witchcraft, its practices and reality into global consciousness. Despite the extreme interest of the paparazzi, the many sincere Initiations performed in Maxine and Alex's Covensteads during and since that period, saw the inception and fashioned a lineage of Witchcraft that has since spread throughout the world.
Maxine is a highly respected Priestess of the Sacred Mysteries. She has encouraged, enabled and inspired students of the Priesthood to take on the conscious mantle of their spiritual potential.
Recently (December 2007) she has published her autobiography, Firechild, described by Professor Ronald Hutton as “One of the most important books ever published on modern paganism: a full and candid autobiography by one of its most influential, and charismatic figures”.
Among Maxine's students and Initiates are those who have written authoritative books and informative works on Pagan and spiritual topics including Janet and Stewart Farrar, as well as Vivienne Crowley.
Several of Maxine's pupils have become accomplished teachers of esoteric knowledge and work internationally. However, most follow the traditional path and pass on the Sacred Mysteries within the hidden Inner realms of the Temples of the Goddess.
Today, when she is not travelling or giving talks, Maxine practices the Art Magical and celebrates the Craft’s rituals either in the mountains or in her stone cottage, Bron Afon in Snowdonia. Maxine practices her Magic’s alone; she has retired from the work of teaching believing this is better performed by younger priesthood.
Maxine was interviewed in the April 08 edition of The Magickal Light Ezine.
