Elyse Welles


​I am Elyse Welles, a third culture kid, both American and Greek. I grew up in Amish country, Pennsylvania, as well as Bahrain in the Middle East - with a regular smattering of visits to Greece, and travel around the Middle East and Europe. I live in Greece now with my husband and our cat, Emma. 

I'm a full-time writer, historian, and podcaster, and I run workshops online (and in-person when I can.) Contact me for an interview or collaboration below, I love talking spirituality, travel, witchcraft, simple living, meditation and more. I write non-fiction articles for five publications including the Wild Hunt and Witch Way Magazine, poetry, and short stories, as well as meditations.

My online courses, "Magickal Living Every Day", and my free course, "Introduction to Magickal Living" are available through The Rebel Mystic, Leandra Witchwood's online school of magical personal growth.


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. Sign up for my newsletter and join my Patreon community for further updates (and more!)

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 sacred places through meditations, recipes, rituals, and conversations on Spirit-first intentional living.
