It’s tempting to assume fairies were dreamt up to amuse weary children, or simply pretty images drawn from the imagination, but those cultures close to Nature know otherwise. Those with a profound connection with Nature have had an ongoing connection with these diminutive caretakers of creation.
Like all numinous possibilities often fairies are hidden from view. They require us to stay humble, to make an effort to seek them out. Yet while they don’t reveal themselves lightly, they often change lives when they do.
Here in this shared space we can exchange stories of our encounters with these fleet-footed folk, honour and delight in them, ponder their wisdom, and celebrate those who reveal a little more of them, including artist Arthur Rackham who though long gone, continues to enchant people worldwide with his glimpses into the fairy kingdom.
