SageWoman: Worlds of Faerie


Our new spring issue of SageWoman is in production and will be mailing in April.

For millennia, we humans have experienced meetings with Beings whose existence overlapped only lightly with our own realm. These visitors bring chaos, whimsy, and undiluted emotion -- ranging from joy to terror -- swirling in their wake. They act in ways that we humans would simply never think of: just similar enough to us that we can interact with them, but twisted just slightly. Many call these beings "Faeries" and this issue is dedicated to our relationships with their ethereal and enigmatic beings.

Included in this issue:

 “Away with the Fairies" · "A Match Made in Faerie" · “Butterfly Wings"
"Pursued by Music: A True Story of the Great Fairy Mound of Iona”
“The Gifts of Annwyn” · “Elves: Fairy Folk of the Northern Lands."

Susun Weed describes her experience with Faerie Medicine; Allison Leigh Lilly reflects on art in a time of strife; and Lizann Bassham describes the connections between the worlds of the Fae and the voice of our ancestors. Anne Hill lends her wisdom on the subject of dreaming between the worlds; Crystal Blanton finds security in solitude; and Rebecca Bailey points out that Faeries don't use cell phones.

Do you wonder how we can find magic in everyday life? Sit in on Amanda Lonsdorf’s conversation on this very subject with British author of The Hedgewitch Book of Days, Mandy Mitchell. Plus Goddess-loving poetry, stories from our readers in the Rattle; and reviews of books we love. We end with a wee story of a trip to the fabled land of the fairies in Ireland by Jennifer Pratt-Walter.

Are the Worlds of Faerie calling to you? Enjoy this special spring issue. 88 pages, to be published in April of 2018.
