Cat Treadwell

I’ve known Cat Treadwell for long enough that I can’t remember when and where we first ran into each other. We have a lot of things in common in our history – The Druid Network, The Pagan Federation, Druid Camp, writing for Pagan Dawn and Moon Books, being a Druid blogger… Somewhere, many years ago, one of these things first brought us into contact with each other.

Cat is a very lovely person who I think is a great example of a Druid Priestess. She does a lot of celebrant work, and prison ministry, she teaches and writes, and lives her Druidry and shares that experience. I have met her in person and she’s someone I would very much like to spend more time with.

This is a video of Cat Treadwell talking for a recent PF Disabilities Team online conference. Here’s she’s talking about mental health and ritual.

This is her blog –

Cat is the author of two titles (at time of writing this.) A Druid’s Tale grew out of the above blog, and is all about her life and work. it’s a lovely expression of being a modern Druid and what that means in practice.

Facing the Darkness offers stories, tools and inspiration to help those suffering from depression – all from a Pagan perspective. My other half – Tom Brown – did the cover for this one.

If you’re not familiar with her work, do look her up, she’s out there in social media land, her books are all the places you can get books, she does talks at events sometimes as well.

    The Disabilities Team is always grateful to Cat for her involvement with the festivals.
    Her videos are insightful, inspiring, heart wrenching, soulful and articulate. She never fails to astound us with her ideas, her humour and her flare for fighting the big fight against not only her own mental illness but all of ours too.
    She’s a true warrior and we couldn’t be happier to count her as one of our closest allies.

    Many thanks, Cat!

    Nimue, you’re another one we adore. Thank you not only for highlighting the wonders of this most awe inspiring woman but for also adding your own exquisite stamp to our events.
    We couldn’t be without either of you!

    Much love and many blessings.
