Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki (Born 1929) is a British occult author, psychic, and esoteric practitioner. An associate of Walter Ernest Butler, she succeeded him as Director of Studies of the Servants of the Light.
Dolores Ashcroft-Nowicki was born on 11 June 1929. She spent World War II on the Wirral Peninsula in the northwest of England. She studied acting in London and also took opera training at Trinity College of Music. She also enjoyed the sport of fencing when young.
During the 1960s, she and her husband Michael Nowicki entered the Fraternity of the Inner Light, an esoteric order founded by occultist Dion Fortune. In 1965 she became associated with Walter Ernest Butler, and with Gareth Knight and the Helios Course in Practical Qabalah which, in 1971, became the foundation of Servants of the Light School. In 1976, when Butler retired, Ashcroft-Nowicki became Director of Studies of the SOL, a position she holds to this day.
Politically, she describes herself as "a steadfast supporter of the Monarchy and the Sovereignty of Britain," with a "profound dislike of the whole idea of the European Economic Community." Ashcroft-Nowicki lives in the Channel Island of Jersey, off the coast of France.
