Welcome Virtual Traveller

Merry Met fellow lover of myth and story. My name is Dawn. I am an author, consultant and professional storyteller.

Here you will find posts on mythic living; the idea that in order to connect with our inner selves and the biophilic rhythms that lie deep within us, we must first reconnect with the land and the stories it holds. In this way we begin the journey to rewild ourselves through story.

My focus is Celtic, British and Scandinavian mythology, the lessons these stories can teach us, how they represent the natural world and our connection with it.

Join me as we stir the cauldron of myth, legend and nature to discover the wisdom within it.

Why Subscribe?

Take your place around the virtual campfire and you'll never miss a missive. As a free subscriber you will receive a monthly newsletter with a different seasonal theme that links to the work that I am doing with story, interpretation and the events that I have that month.

In addition you will be notified of new episodes of my podcast ‘Stories From Lore’, which will remain free as it has done for the last three seasons. I am currently on a little hiatus from the podcast but once it restarts then you will receive new episodes straight to your inbox.

If you choose to upgrade, then as a paid member you will receive extra content which explores nature, landscape, heritage and story in the form of essays, mindful moments for wellbeing, seasonal story connection, behind-the-scenes, Q &As and much more.*

Supporting my work in this way allows me to continue to write freely and authentically and I thank you from the bottom of my story telling heart.

(* extra content will be a minimum of two extra posts a month)
