Neil Rushton’s extensive guide to sites regarding the Fey and he mentions our site too, thanks Neil
During the past couple of years, there has been a burgeoning number of online sources discussing the faeries in all their guises. This perhaps represents a renewed interest in these supernatural entities that have been part of our culture for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. There appears to be an extended realisation that they have something important to add to our understanding of reality; whether it be through the lens of folklore or through a modernistic, esoteric view.

Our Earth’s Mother Feminine energy is now birthing her own shift, as she raises her vibration to the next phase within the planetary alignments that happen within the cycles of the Cosmic Progression.
We go to School and learn the traditional ways of the world… And yet seldom do we learn from the school of Mother Nature from her own Earth School which she brings to us daily.
