John & Caitlín Matthews are respected initiators in the Shamanic, Celtic and Arthurian traditions, and have opened many doors to a reappreciation of the mythic heritage of the Western World. They are the authors of over 90 books. John's best-loved works are The Celtic Shaman, King Arthur and The Winter Solstice. Caitlin's books include The Da Vinci Enigma Tarot, Celtic Devotional, and Sophia, Goddess of Wisdom, Bride of God. They are the joint authors of Walkers Between Worlds, The Element Encyclopaedia of Magical Creatures, and The Arthurian Tarot. They have also written several children's books on myth. Their books have been translated into French, Italian, Spanish, German, Czech, Dutch, Hebrew, Portuguese, Danish, Korean, Japanese, Finish and Russian.

The material in their books is based upon practical knowledge, which they teach worldwide. Together they have pioneered the shamanic use of the vatic and spiritual elements within ancestral and Celtic traditions. The Matthews are co-founders of The Foundation of Inspirational and Oracular Studies. They have made numerous appearances on TV in the United Kingdom and the US, and have been advisors on several TV series. John was recently the historical advisor to the Hollywood blockbuster King Arthur. They live in Oxford where Caitlín has a shamanic practice dedicated to midwifing the soul.
