The Enchanted Life: Unlocking the Magic of the Everyday
£14.99 paperback September Publishing (2018)
A book of natural wonders, practical guidance and life-changing empowerment.
‘I believe that enchantment is an attitude of mind which can be cultivated, a way of approaching the world which anyone can learn to adopt: the enchanted life is possible for everybody.’
The new book from internationally acclaimed writer, psychologist and mythologist Sharon Blackie, author of If Women Rose Rooted.
‘To live an enchanted life is to pick up the pieces of our bruised and battered psyches, and to offer them the nourishment they long for. It is to be challenged, to be awakened, to be gripped and shaken to the core by the extraordinary which lies at the heart of the ordinary. Above all, to live an enchanted life is to fall in love with the world all over again.’
The enchanted life has nothing to do with fantasy or escapism or magical thinking: it is founded on a vivid sense of belongingness to a rich and many-layered world. It is creative, intuitive, imaginative. It thrives on work that has heart and meaning. It loves wild things, but returns to an enchanted home and garden. It respects the instinctive knowledge and playfulness of children, and relishes story, poetry and art.
Taking the inspiration and wisdom that can be derived from myth, fairy tales and folk culture, this book offers a set of practical and grounded tools for enchanting our lives and the places we live in, giving us a greater sense of meaning and of belonging to the world.
An inspiring, beautifully written call to re-engage with the world – giving us the tools for profound and whole-hearted participation in the adventure of life.
