Lady Tamara Von Forslun (The Wicce of Oz) has been involved in the Craft and teaching Wicca and Witchcraft (read Wiccecraft) for over 40 years, she is considered one of the world’s respected Wiccan Elders and is the Founder and Creator of “The Church of Wicca” (Australia 1989), and was the Arch Priestess of the Aquarian Tabernacle Church in Australia (1991).
Lady Tamara has been involved in the Wiccan movement since she was only 16 years of age, where she started her training in Traditional Wicca, Hereditary Wiccecraft and then moving on to Alexandrian and Gardnarian Wicca.
Lady Tamara then purchased her first property in Mundijong, a small farm that was perfect for her lifestyle and her Coven to grow and learn. She started working alone without a High Priest and after a lot of money, and legal endeavours and many years of trying to legalise Wicca as a religion in Australia, Lady Tamara Founded and had legalised at a federal level Australia’s first legal Neo-Pagan Church, The Church of Wicca. This was a great transition as it meant that Wicces could not be prosecuted in Australia anymore, as it was still illegal in certain parts of Australia especially Queensland and Western Australia.
Through Lady Tamara’s ambitions to make it recognised both federally, and by local authorities she endeavoured on having more and more contact with the media due to the help of her friend Terry Willesee of the Willesee family. Where she did several documentaries, and hundreds of interviews on TV shows and at least one interview a week on radio. Through this media connection she had contacts Australia wide and met up with fellow High Priestesses from other states who wanted to be a part of the Church of Wicca, and so several Churches were set up in Queensland with Lady Brianna, New South Wales with Lady Mara, Victoria with Lady Mystl and in Western Australia, many High Priests and High Priestesses who hived off and formed their own individual covens, and many dozens of Ordained Priests and Priestesses.
Lady Tamara also became the first and only legal Wiccan Marriage Celebrant in Australia, and was always travelling interstate marrying Wiccan couples and also non-Wiccan couples who just loved her ceremony. Also as an Arch Priestess of The Aquarian Tabernacle Church (ATC) she became a Chaplain at prisons and hospitals around Australia and would venture to those who asked for her services, she became quite recognisable as a marriage celebrant and officiated at hundreds of weddings and just as many funerals.
Lady Tamara had a successful two-storey Wiccan and New Age store in Fremantle, Western Australia, (The Alchemist) which was also the largest organic herbal store in Australia. With all alternative medicines and much, much more. Lady Tamara funded and supported financially The Church of Wicca through its complete life cycle, by running many training nights such as Outer Courts, Festivals and also has a published magazine called The Spirit Earth Magazine which was distributed Australia wide and became quite popular.
Lady Tamara through her myriad travels worldwide has learnt from the likes of Alex Sanders, Lady Margaret a Hereditary Wicce, David the 5th a traditional Wicce, Lady Elizabeth a Green Witch, Simon Goodman an Alexandrian, Pete Pathfinder a Gardnarian Witch and Founder of the ATC, Velvet Reith a Voudoun Priestess, Jubabe a Shaman from South America, and most importantly her mother Valma who was a Love Goddess and loved everyone and everything.
Lady Tamara thanks all of these teachers especially her latest teachers such as her High Priest Lord Asherah and Tarquin both true devout Priests of the Goddess. Lady Tamara also wishes to thank Pachamama, the Earth Mother for all her lessons that were heard and unheard.
