Sara Lees-Smith was born and raised in the New Forest, an area steeped in the history of Witchcraft. She was initiated at 18 years old and trained with Bel Bucca. In 1984 she founded the Coranieid Coven with Anna Franklin, who in later years hived off to form her own Hearth, and thus the Coranieid Clan came into being, with subsequent individual hearths forming, giving a great sense of family.
Sara graduated from London University in 1980 with an honours degree in Religious Studies and Education. She then trained as a Healer with the NFSH, adding Bio-energetic medicine, hypnotherapy, and core Shamanism to her practise.
In 1993, Sara was awarded an honorary Doctorate by the International Open University (complimentary medicine), for “ dedication to develop and promote comparative medicine in a humanitarian manner.”
Today Sara facilitates HEALU, The school of Traditional Healing, teaching healing and working with clients, especially those with life-challenging dis-eases.
She is also a ceremonialist, and is happy to facilitate Rites of Passage.
Sara Works in the Horsa Covenant, which is based in the New Forest and the Isle of Purbeck

Deep within the forests, high upon the hills and mountains, on the wind scarred moors or in the caves of the seashore; there are those who know a place of comfort and refuge. From ancient times the indigenous folk knew that the land gave them all they needed. When lawmakers came to govern such people they were perplexed by the lack of understanding of the ways of the so-called wilderness. And so, some would break off, sometimes known as Wolfheads, or Outlaws.But these folk held an ancient mystery – and therefore the true Law.
