"An Evening with Doris, the New Age Guru"


"I cannot recommend her highly enough. One of the best evenings I have ever spent in a theatre audience. Deep magic."
Glastonbury Noticeboard.

"DORIS… An unexpected package of surprise and eccentricity. From the outset she engaged the whole audience on a pathway to enlightenment and self-knowledge. We were encouraged to step beyond the boundaries of what is deemed acceptable behaviour led by Doris' lively example. The best fun a group of consenting adults have had in a very long time…"
Tig Land, Random Acts Theatre company.


After thirty five years married to Stanley in Pontefract, Doris was blessed when a blinding flash electrocuted the hoover and her spirit guide came shining through. Instructed to branch out into the New Age of Aquariums, she voyaged to the Oracle at Delphi, who told her to beware of therapies which would cost a lot and leave her none the wiser. Ignoring the guidance, she became addicted to New Age workshops, finally deciding to devise her own. From tea to tarot, karaoke to karma and toilets to tantra, Doris now leads journeys to the brighter side of life…


" I laughed so much my face hurt ! "
Richard Dunkerley, Director of "Alternatives ", London.
