This review is from: Faery Craft: Weaving Connections with the Enchanted Realm (Paperback)
I am lucky enough to know Emily Carding personally, and have long enjoyed learning from her about the fae. She is the one who opened me to them again - after years of separation, since I'd left childhood. She taught me that the fae are not the sweet little flower creatures of Victorian imagination, but beings of power, light and strong connection with the Earth; the Elder race, with their own culture, civilisation and modes of thinking and operating. Some of this Emily had explored in her Tarot of the Sidhe, channelled from the great Sidhe faery of Ireland. Now Emily brings her deep knowledge of the faery realm, forged over a lifetime, to the page in this book, sharing it with a wider public. Her work is practical: in addition to the lore that she shares, Emily also suggests exercises and activities to discover faery, strengthen our connections with it, honour the fae and learn from these wise beings, custodians of the Earth in a real sense.
Read this book. Have fun with the exercises, the lore, the beauty, the glitter and games. But be sure to put it down often and go out in the woods, by the streams, under waterfalls, up mountains or into caves, and develop a direct experience of the fae, guided by Emily's wise understanding of them. Then let them influence your day-to-day life, your relationship with the Earth and your action to save our Mother Planet from another mass extinction, which looms ever closer. There is still time: and the fae can help in many ways, not least as our guides and teachers.
