This book provides you with a detailed description of the eight major pagan festivals as they fall chronologically throughout the year. Each celebration leads you further into Mrs. Darley's magical world and invites you to experience the wisdom of the ancients within a modern setting.
Carole Carlton brings the important days of pagan traditions together by exploring the cycle of seasonal celebrations with relevant dates. Alternate names, the folklore that has become associated with it throughout the ages and any closely associated festivals and origins are detailed, as well as how they were once celebrated.
Mrs. Darley's Pagan Whispers is full of thought-provoking stories, which describe some of the experiences the author encountered during her time in Cornwall. All involve her once next-door neighbor, Mrs. Darley, a delightfully eloquent, yet mysterious lady of a certain age. This provides an insight into how Mrs. Darley encouraged her to become involved in each occasion.
Have you ever longed to walk barefoot in the winter snow, greet the summer solstice dawn with drums and honeyed toast or experience the pure magic of May Eve? If so, then this book is the answer to your quest.
Each festival having subsections designed to engage the listener in didactic, experiential and experimental learning, whilst simultaneously transporting them to a world of mystery and magic.

"How fascinating !"
Wonderful exploration of our Earths seasonal cycles.
Realizing that wanting to be in tune with nature, the earth and her rhythms is innate in us all....but may be deeply buried. This book will help you excavate your inner self. You can give yourself permission to run barefoot through the dew-soaked grass.......it's perfectly alright .....!
Enchanting, easy to listen to and very soothing I found. I particularly liked the way she bought Mrs Darley to life. Top quality recording too, I shall be looking out for other titles Narrated by Emma.
It did bring me close to tears at some points as I recognized a deep longing in myself to reconnect and get myself back on track and more in tune with nature and her seasons.
I had every intention of settling down to enjoy this over the course of a week or so.....but once I'd started listening I just had to finish it ! There are other Mrs Darley books in print and I sincerely hope they will come to audible ....and if they were narrated by Emma too....well, I would be over the moon !
