From Fae Nation, the international faery portal

The Book of Faery Magic
“From the faeries we can rediscover who we really are, and awaken our natural abilities to create wonderful, enchanted lives that are full of meaning and purpose, fun and delight.”

A collaboration between Australian authors Lucy Cavendish and Serene Conneeley, The Book of Faery Magic is a delightful guide to working with the Faerie Folk. The book blends traditional faerie lore with modern magical practices like guided meditation, setting up your own faerie altar and creating a special wand. It also includes ideas for planting a faerie garden, recipes and craft projects to deepen your relationship with the faeries and to discover your own inner wild self (not to mention have some fun along the way!). Throughout the book you will also find interviews with various ‘movers and shakers’ of modern faerie culture, for example FAE Editor Karen Kay, artist Jessica Galbreth (who also provides the lovely cover art), and musician Wendy Rule. These interviews give insights into their beliefs and interactions with the fae and are quite fascinating. The books takes a gentle approach, encouraging the reader to seek out what works best for them, whilst providing a basic knowledge. Please don’t think this is a light read however – running to more than 300 pages there is a vast amount of information between the covers! Most importantly, I’m pleased to see a strong environmental message throughout the book (indeed, one chapter is entirely dedicated to ways you can help the environment). As with the rest of the book the authors manage to avoid being preachy and instead encourage you to think for yourself and find a way that best suits you.
The Book of Faery Magic is available to order now from the Faery Magic website.

Also available from Amazon US, Amazon UK and Blessed Bee Australia
