FAERY TALE Signe Pike
How might it change the world if we could reclaim some of our magic, some of our lost sense of myth and wonderment? Maybe, suggests Signe Pike, we would treat each other with more kindness, more carefully, more respectfully. And so we join her on her magical journey through Mexico, England, Ireland, Scotland and beyond, seeking people who still believe in and know of the elusive elemental beings, the faeries, and the places they may be found. We accompany her to the mystical dark glens and forests of legend and folklore, and to ancient sacred sites, where she strives to connect with the spirit world and reconnect with her sense of wonder and purpose. Ultimately, we witness the transformation as Signe learns from the other realms, coming to view both herself and the world around her in a new light, recognising the magic that surrounds us, and the connections we can nurture and cherish beyond the world that meets the eye, wherever we are.
