Discover Spirit-First Intentional Living with ElyseWelles

10-year spiritual practitioner, author, & guide.

​I'm Elyse Welles, a Greek-Egyptian American. I've lived on 3 continents and studied the spiritual in dozens of countries. I live in Greece now with my husband and our cat, Emma, writing; podcasting; YouTubing; coaching; teaching workshops; and leading spiritual pilgrimages to ancient Greek temples in the Athens area.

My online courses, "Manifesting a Spiritual Life", and my free course, "Introduction to Intentional, Spiritual Living" are available through Cerridwen's Grove Collective, an online school of magical personal growth.


I write non-fiction articles, poetry, and short stories, published in various places. My first novel, "Witch on the Juniata River", is coming in 2024 from Running Wild Press! Currently I am pursuing publication for my first non-fiction book on personal, spiritual development.

I co-host the Magick Kitchen Podcast with Leandra Witchwood, where we share magickal tips and musings on anything from shadow work to working with deity.

Seeking Numina is my YouTube channel where I share meditations, recipes, rituals, and conversations on Spirit-first intentional living.
