There were once 9 Maidens…

“In the book The Quest for the Nine Maidens, I have shown that these weird sisters are merely one of multifarious representations of a remarkably long-lived institution that underpins and infuses the mythology and folklore of the Celtic, Scandinavian and Iberian worlds and beyond in a timescale that seems to have lasted for millennia. For what the past two decades of research have shown me is that whether they hide behind the names of early Christian saints or Gaulish druidesses, Valkyries or Muses there was a sisterhood known to historians in the Classical world and remembered by that other strange sisterhood, the witches as late as the 16th century in Scotland, and who are remembered in a cave painting from near the dawn of time in Catalonia (El Cogul) but have almost been forgotten by the modern world.”

Going Back to the Roots, Where Treasures Lie…

When you start delving into the rich folklore & ancient beliefs of the Alps and parts of Europe, you quickly will encounter the many-faceted Goddess(es) of old. Clues are found all over the land, the mountains and in architecture.

This is the real deal! The good & the bad, the Ancestors, the Forces & Cycles of Nature…

Nothing to do with the cutesy, new-agey goddess stuff we’ve been delivered. If indeed you wish to connect with the Goddess energy, go back to the roots and get ready to do some deep & grounded transformational work…

As much as my German is rusted, I have found among German books real treasures that haven’t been translated neither in French nor in English…And with topics that were unknown to me (even in herbal healing).
