The Faery Tradition

The Faery Tradition is the centre flame of the Celtic Mystery Tradition which holds in its heart the knowledge of a divine child within each one of us and within all living things. This inspires a deep love and reverence for the natural world and for all beings.

It is, in essence a worldwide mystery tradition which grows from a single root. This root is the understanding that emerges when a single soul looks out across the land in awe and understands that Nature herself is the Divine Incarnate; that life is teeming with Presence and that the Numinous is all about us. From that root is born the knowledge that behind everything in nature is a spiritual or divine intelligence, whether that is a rock, a tree, an animal or a human. From this one common root grows the knowledge that we all form part of the one Divine Being.

Wherever the Faery Faith is found, it has its own distinct cultural flavour, its own soul song. Though it may be passed down through ancestral lines, it is the responsibility of every soul who is drawn inextricably to its mystery, to find her own soul song; to link to her own ancestral traditions and through her connection to her own divine spirit and to the Otherworld, to reveal her own divine mystery.

The Faery Tradition is our own indigenous shamanism and has nothing whatsoever to do with the small, diminutive fairies depicted by the Victorians or to Disney’s Thumbelina and everything to do with the Divine Otherworld whose mystery is often revealed through the old Celtic and British myths and legends.


And this Divine Otherworld is the part of the mystery that creates such yearning within us. By journeying to the Otherworld, we begin to face our difficulties, resolve imbalance, find new ways of being. At the same time we return renewed, refreshed and with the knowledge that we are altered. We know and that alchemy has occurred.

It is by developing connection to our own Otherworldly teachers and companions; through observing the currents of energy that flow through us, our own soul song, that we can begin to reveal and ratiate our own mystery.

“There exists a most beautiful and vibrant mystery tradition belonging to these isles, our own faery tradition. This tradition provokes profound changes in us, teaching us about the mystery of our own nature.  It provides us with a way of walking in harmony with the Earth, all of nature and within Sacred Law. It asks us to become aware of other realms of being with whom we must learn to live in harmony. Simply, it provides us with a way home.”
