Faery Healing: The Lore and the
Margie has written a superb book which although centred around faery
practices linked to the faery tradition, is also a treasure trove of faery lore and wisdom, particularly relevant to these islands, and of
Native British Folklore and Celtic/Druidic Traditions. There is much good material on the Tuatha de Danaan and their four Cities (topics
close to SONG), on herbal lore, tree wisdom, and traditionally faery induced ailments and their cures. There is a good section on historical
evidence of the faery healing tradition in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales; magic and magical practices, and a grounding of information
on the elements. The first half of the book gives us the information and a very good read it is. But the crowning glory - or faery crown -
of it is the second half - ‘A Practical Manual for Faery Healing' which
is devoted to actual practice using a variety of exercises, meditations and pathworkings and a lot of good common sense advice. The healing of
course relates to ones-Self, the Land and of others.
I love this book and recommend it entirely. It has a good and genuine ‘feel' to it which not all books on faery do. My only sadness is that
it is not yet generally available in the UK......Thank you Margie for
a lovely book.
