The Faerie Way

Postby Runwulf » 15 Aug 2011, 22:47

Greetings...

Has anyone read The Faerie Way by Hugh Mynne? It's out of print, but I just downloaded it for free and was wondering if anyone has worked with it and had some positive experiences.

Blessings...

Sorry...the only fairy book I've attempted to read is 'The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries' By W. Y. Evans-Wentz.
http://www.sacred-texts.com/neu/celt/ffcc/index.htm

Sounds interesting, eh? I say I've attempted to read it because I open to the first page and it hits me like propofol, every time. I wake myself up snoring with the book on my face.

How are you doing with your book? Have you read the whole thing, and what are your thoughts on it? Worth reading?

Thanks for your comment. I know what you mean about "The Fairy-Faith in Celtic Countries" but it is a great book. The Faerie Way is great, it's making my heart sing, and definitely worth reading if you're interested in such things. But I've only really begun and have to work with the exercises more to go deeper into the Faery reality.

Blessings...

I 'll take you up on that then :grin: I've long wanted to educate myself on faeries so I'll give it a go with this book :cloud9:

Blessings on your journey Astrid! I hope the book helps.

If you're interested in the faery tradition then you should read "Robert Kirk, Walker Between Worlds by R.J. Stewart". It's an annotated edition of a notebook on the faery tradition from 1692, The Secret Commonwealth of Elves Fauns and Fairies by Robert Kirk. It's one of the most important works, so here's the link:

Thanks for the recommended book: The Faerie Way. I have downloaded it and it appears that it will be a good read. I have had Faerie interactions on my wooded property and I want to learn all I can about them.

At times I feel as if I am spread out over the landscape and inside things, and am myself living in every tree, in the splashing of the waves, in the clouds, and the animals that come and go, in the procession the seasons..."
