Biography

Prominent British occultist and author who established the Society of the Inner Light. Schooled in Western esotericism, she was a prolific writer of the supernatural and the occult in both novels and non-fiction works. The Society of the Inner Light operates from its base in London and accepts pupils for training and initiation along the lines of her original teaching (for External Link see below).

Known to those in her inner circle as DF, her pseudonym was inspired by her family motto "Deo, non-fortuna" (Latin for "by God, not fate"), originally the ancient motto of the Barons and Earls Digby. Fortune died on 6 January 1946 from leukemia in Middlesex, London, at the age of 55.
