A friend of mine just finished participating in a weekend gathering of The Westcountry School of Myth, run by Dr. Martin Shaw on the other side of the Dartmoor -- reminding me of just how much I've been inspired by Martin's words and work over the years. I recommend At the Storyteller's Table, a recent video about the power and importance of Story, filmed in Martin's kitchen by Andreas Kornevall. You can watch it here. I also recommend his various books, all deeply grounded in mythic scholarship and in daily interaction with the more-than-human world. You can read passages from Scatterlings here and here; purchase his contribution to Hedgespoken's Seven Doors series here; and learn about his latest, Wolf Milk: Chthonic Memory in the Deep Wild, here.
The two paintings above are by West Country artist Catherine Hyde. Photographs: students at the Westcountry School of Myth, and my copy of Scatterlings.
