Dion

1890
Born Llandudno, North Wales, as Violet Mary Firth on December 6
th 1890.

1910-20:
Interest and involvement in psychoanalysis and attracted towards the occult by their apparent overlap. Studied occultism under Dr. Theodore Moriarty and joined the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn in 1919, in the Alpha et Omega Lodge run by the novelist Brodie Innes.

1920-30:
Transferred to Stella Matutina Lodge of the Golden Dawn run by Moina MacGregor Mathers and developed mediumship capabilities in herself whilst continuing the occult/psychological interest. Her writings in this period reflect this: Machinery Of The Mind, The Soya Bean, The Psychology Of The Servant Problem, The Problem Of Purity; The Esoteric Philosophy Of Love And Marriage, Sane Occultism, The Esoteric Orders And Their Work, The Training And Work Of An Initiate, The Cosmic Doctrine, Psychic Self Defence and the fictional works The Secrets of Dr Taverner and The Demon Lover.

Her strong magical-psychological bias was modified by a powerful vision about the need to take on board the Christian dynamic, and she joined, somewhat reluctantly, the Christian Mystic Lodge of the Theosophical Society of which she soon become President. As a result however of strong disapproval of senior figures in the Theosophical Society, and the Golden Dawn, in her view, becoming moribund, she founded the Community of the Inner Light, first at Glastonbury and soon also with a headquarters in London. In 1927 she married Dr. Thomas Penry Evans.  {Click Here for Next Page}
