Why Fairy Tales and Myths Should Be a Part of Your Spiritual Practice

Why Fairy Tales and Myths Should Be a Part of Your Spiritual Practice

October 23, 2019

Fairy tales were originally written for adults! But now when adults indulge in myth and magick, they can seem like a guilty pleasure. In today's episode, Damh the Bard talks about Y Mabinogi and shares why these ancient tales (and others) are still relevant to life and spirituality.

Damh the Bard is a modern-day Bard whose spirituality and love of folk tradition is expressed through his music, storytelling and poetry. With seven outstanding albums, and singing and speaking engagements all over the world, Damh has become one of the most popular contemporary pagan musicians – a musical storyteller who works within the world of myth: where the Faerie really do dance on Midsummer’s Eve, where the trees talk, and the Hollow Hills take you into the realms of Annwn, where the Goddess rides her horse, guiding you to magic, and the Horned God of old calls to you from the shadows of the Greenwood. Along with his musical concerts, Damh has also given talks, run workshops and participated in panel discussions at conferences and camps in the UK, Europe, Australia, Canada and the USA, with his favorite topics including Druidry, Awen and the creative quest, magick, treelore, and Arthurian lore.
