Enchanted Beings

The Journey So Far

Book Two

In this, the second instalment in her Two White Feathers trilogy, practitioner Jenny Chapman takes us on a trip around the pagan wheel of the year, as eight practitioners reveal how key festival times – Samhain, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha, Lughnasadh and Mabon – connect with their contemporary practice. The resulting interviews are testament to an alternative way of viewing the world, and different ways of harnessing energy.

And what practitioners they are! ‘A series of bards, hags, shrews, soothsayers, sorcerers, shamans and witches – call the what you will – came to my aid’ writes Jenny, and whether using horses with prisoners, forging power tools with a magical smith or seeking communion with the Yew tree, her interviewees prove both unique and linked in the open-mindedness and rigor or their approach.

Jenny ends the book with a description of her own journey through the year, and what her teachers have offered her by way of viewing the worlds afresh.

Enchanted Beings is both a fascinating view into a world most of us are content to let pass by, and a practical guide to how to access the ancient cycles which course through the shared land we inhabit.
