Overview

Build Relationships with Faeries and Connect with Nature on a Deep, Soul Level

The natural world is integral to our spiritual and magical lives and the lives of faeries and nature spirits. With this book, you'll discover how plants bridge the worlds and help us work with these extraordinary beings. Drawing from folklore, history, and personal experience, Sandra Kynes teaches you all about faery magic and the unique ways that plants enhance your connection to the fae.

This comprehensive guide presents over one hundred profiles of common and obscure plants associated with faeries and nature spirits. Grow bracken fern to attract faeries to your property. Hold a small bundle of vervain to help you communicate with nature spirits. Set out a bowl of blackberries as a token of friendship. With hands-on activities and exercises, this book shows you how to journey to faeryland, conduct dreamwork, and heal both yourself and the planet.
