Sue Vincent

warmerstar2I am a Yorkshire born painter and writer, living in the south of England. I paint the strange things that come as images in dreams and fantasies and write about life as it happens.

I was raised in a spiritually eclectic family in a landscape where myths and legends were woven into the stones, and have always had an intimate relationship with the inner worlds and the understanding that all paths are but spokes on a wheel, leading ultimately to the same centre. It is not the path that one walks that matters, but how one chooses to walk it.

logjpgI have been a student of the Mysteries for most of my life, studying alone for many years before joining the Servants of the Light. In 2012 I joined Steve Tanham as Director of the Silent Eye School of Consciousness, a modern Mystery School that seeks to strip back many of the layers in which esoteric thought has become shrouded and teach students a way to find the inherent magic in living and being.

The School is not a business and is run simply and ethically to cover its own costs, not make a profit. The Silent Eye website has a blog, news and events section. We hold regular workshops and events and an annual weekend residential workshop in Derbyshire… details on the Silent Eye home page.

offering-lg1As a painter, I play in most media and have painted everything from wedding cakes to huge murals. I spent a long time chasing realism, until I found the confidence to paint what I saw in the colours that sing to me.

As a writer, I have always scribbled. Poetry came first, I think, and I was fortunate enough to win the David Burland International Poetry Prize in 2008. In that year also I began writing a column for The Spirit Guides. It was a busy year, as I was teaching online with various esoteric forums and made the acquaintance of Dr G. Michael Vasey. The friendship grew and we released The Mystical Hexagram, recently republished as an extended and updated edition.

In 2013 a writing partnership was born that has proved a joy. Stuart France, now the third in the triad of Directors of the Silent Eye, and I embarked, all unknowing, on an adventure that would take us across the sacred landscape of Albion and which has resulted in the publication of a number of books together, with more to come. We have an enormous amount of fun in our wanderings and wonderings, which may reflect somewhat in the way we write.

UntitledIn 2009 my eldest son, Nick, was left for dead, stabbed through the brain in an unprovoked attack. Many of the earlier entries here chart his remarkable and near miraculous journey and the fallout the attack had on the family. An event like this changes everything, including one’s outlook. Luckily, for us it changed it for the better and love and laughter thrive. Nick now writes his own blog and is working on a book that tells his  story.

Apart from that, I have two adult sons, too many books (or not enough….) and a mad dog who also blogs when I let her near the keyboard…

You can contact me via the form on my contact page, where you will also find the principal social media links.

And yes, that was a lucky shot.

  1. So lovely to discover your writing today! A mystery school! I had just listened to a Neil Kramer interview this week, where he was talking about the mystery schools that used to be and are no more, and I found myself pondering this loss. I will look forward to catching up on your writing! You words caught my attention immediately – the ring of truth in one’s voice and words is becoming ever more apparent to me.

      Thank you, Marga. I noticed you had found the Facebook page.. there is also one for he School as well as the website.

      We are not the only Mystery School, there are others, some long established and respected Schools. We are just coming to birth, carrying forward a flame we have been handed.

      It is something we are passionate about and want to bring to life in the modern world.

  4. Thank you for liking my article “What do you seek?” I’m very glad your son not only survived that attack, but is doing so well. That kind of thing, as well as your car crash when you were 19, either destroy us and our families or make us stronger. It’s good to see that your family has held tightly together.

  17. Just thought I’d leave you a note here to say, how good it was to read what your son Nick wrote and as a lady of poetry and fiction, it is a refreshing change to read something of real value. I have realised in my very short life of blogging that it’s not good for my mind to follow and read too many poets and writers of fiction, because it all starts to feel like rubbish in the end – and some of it is (hope they don’t read this!!) I include some of my own in that too!

    You must be a real inspiring lady to have a son who thinks like he does, because we all are inspired by our parents in some form or another, even if we would rather not admit it!

    And one last thing, your post by Nick really made my day!

      My poetry varies in quality.. I write it for me and merely inflict it on the rest of the world…*chuckles*
      Nick has gone in search of the book you mentioned. He wants to read it… and being able to read again at all is such a joy for him, and for me to see.

        Yes, “like” is a terrible word in this context, like nice.

  75. Hi Sue, whenever anyone decides to follow my blog I always go to see their blog. Fortunately, no one, as yet, has ever bolted their doors to their blog, despite this possible intrusion by me. I usually take this to mean, that I can take away whatever I want. What I take away from your blog, is an experienced writer and artist who is still growing. This all suggest to me, that it’s not too late for someone like me to improve. Thank you Sue, for looking in my Attic cluttered as it may be. I am always pleased when I see someone found my writing worth pressing the like button on. I’m even more excited when I notice they decided to roll the dice, and follow my incoherent ramblings, maybe in spite of their inner voice saying something like, “Don’t go there girlfriend” especially if they happen to be a guy. Your bravery has been duly noted, and I will do my best to make you laugh. However, in the event I fail in this attempt, I can’t offer you a money back guarantee, but my blog is not worth much anyway. I am delighted to have you as one of my followers, which is saying something when you consider, I have no idea where this is going.:O)

    Sue, I can only imagine what you went through when your son was attacked. Perhaps I imagine a bit better than most having lost a daughter. They are so interwoven into our lives. Though she has been gone many years, she is always with me.
    Now I must take umbrage, there is no such thing as too many books, I keep telling my kids that and they roll their eyes at me, “Yes, mom”.
    Thank you for visiting one of my blogs.

  100. I agree on what you had said: “It is not the path that one walks that matters, but how one chooses to walk it.”

    Your writings captivated me. Reading through some of your deeper posts has been a wonderful experience for me. I knew, deep down, I’m waking up to the Consciousness of Self your words allowed with such a unique impact upon me.

    I became one with nature and nature has become what I would like it to be. It’s to feel like forever in as much as myself gotten caught in the endless trap of sweet surrender. I would be here for as long as what captivates me. But the sight belongs to the heart that feels.

    I would be here to greet each day with a smile in my heart and the night, with thanksgiving and prayers. I’m here to give love, to care. I should be here for the best that I can be.

    I felt like I was returning to Forever. Forever in a way that days and nights are, indeed, the means that preserve the here and now. The traveler on the road knows where he is heading.

    And, like a true pilgrim, the Shrine lies where he can’t see it because he was still far away from his destination. He only feels it in the heart from a distance.

      Hi, thank you for coming over 🙂 The bears really got to me. Mind, so did some of the others…
      The dog, unfortunately, is a camera hog with the demands of a prima donna since she started getting her own fans. She now owns the sofa and rules me with big brown eyes… 😉

    Hiya Sue > Phew that’s a really interesting bio. Just wondering what the Servants of the Light is all about though. Followed Nick’s blog. He’s a really talented writer

      Hi Andy,
      The Servants of the Light is a school in the western Mystery Tradition, whith whom I trained. These days I help run the Silent Eye with two others who trained with SOL.
      The simple fact that Nick can write at all is a bit of a miracle after what he has been through. He’s just gearing up for a bit of an adventure at present…which doubtless he will share 🙂

        I guess Nicks story changed everyone’s life in your family. Maybe life has a more special meaning for you. I hope to break into fictional writing soon. I need to get the next travelogue out of the way first. Any tips you could give would be awesome.

          It did, Andy. Some ‘fell by the wayside’, others drew strength and understanding…and for Nick it pressed a reset button that brought life to life.
          I’m enjoying the travelogues… especially the Tibetan leg of the journeys that I have read so far.
          I doubt I’m qualified to give any tips on writing fiction…other than listening to your characters who’ll tell you the story anyway 🙂
          You would be most welcome to come over for a guest post at any time though…every bit of platform building helps 🙂

            Its really nice knowing someone is enjoying the journey. I initially did the YouTube for my family as a super loved relative passed away in June and I wanted to let them all know what I was doing and I was ok. It turned out that I couldnt post anything anywhere due to limited Wifi so I’m having to catch up now. Would love to do a guest post though you’d have to let me know what I would have to do. I promise I’ll be well behaved LOL. Ps R U in Brighton as I used to live down that way > commuted the hellish road to Chichester from Brighton every day blaaaagh!
