This week on the Explore Your Spirit with Kala Show, we’re airing one of the Best of Kala Shows from the archives. New shows on Explore Your Spirit begin on Tuesday, February 1st with Sandy Anastasi.
Our show this week is Exploring the Magical Practices of the Fairy Kingdom with Orion Foxwood. We also discuss Orion’s book, The Tree of Enchantment. Faery Seership and the truths we seek can only be found within ourselves, within nature, and within our relationships to nature. At the center of the Faery Tradition lies the Tree of Enchantment: the symbol for these relationships and for the threefold life of humanity. At each level of the tree, there are attending spirit forces that vary from beings of light to beings of shadow, from the ancestors of humanity to the architects of form and nature, from the destiny of our planet to the creation forces of the universe. The tree’s roots grow through the lower world, where all life originates and the dead travel, its trunk and lower branches reach out across the middle world, where elemental forces and the four directions guide us, and its highest branches reach the into the upper world and the Star realm.
Orion and I discuss folk traditions and his extensive academic research into the Old Religion of Faery Seership. Based on Appalachian traditions, Wiccan studies, Celtic oral traditions, and the Craft from Western and Northern Europe, The Tree of Enchantment offers the student of Faery Tradition both introductory and advanced visionary practices and authentic tools to learn to navigate the three realms of humanity. With diligence and an open heart, the reader will learn to cross The River of Blood, pass through The Gate of Awakening, and over The River of Stars.
