Recommended Reading

Please enjoy this list of some of my favorite books on the Faery Path, the Herbal Arts, Celtic History, Myth and Folklore and a few Shamanic and Celtic Spirituality books as well. The list of my recommendations is long so I will be adding more as time goes on.

 

**Please note that as much as I feel these books are important reads for your studies, the most important teachings come directly from Faery. All authors that write about our experiences, our ways of connecting to Them, make up a part of that collective energy that is Faery. It is a culmination of us pathworking with Them and then us putting that knowledge out there for others! Yet my way may not be your way, and vice versa, that is the beauty of Faery, it is different for each of us. This is why in all my teachings I share, I offer guidance not gospel, you need to seek and then find your own truth. My purpose is to ensure that Faery is honored and remembered for generations to come, to help you remember. This "remembrance" is unique to each of you and nothing you read in a book, to include my own writings, is a replacement for you finding your own path to Them, that is a sacred journey you must walk with your Faery Guides and Allies. I am here to bridge the gap by means of Faery working through me for you, the seeker of this knowledge. Remember, this path is a sacred journey that know one else can walk for you, there are NO shortcuts when working with the Hidden Folk but every moment you put into your relationship with them is the most precious part of the journey. In saying all that-there is no one-single path to Faery and there is no right or wrong way, as long as you follow your heart-they will meet you half-way.
