Undines: Lessons from the Realm of the Water Spirits


Undines: Lessons from the Realm of the Water Spirits Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Undines--from the Latin root unda, which means "wave"-- are water elementals, or spirits of the water world. Like their fellow elementals--salamanders (fire), sylphs(air), and gnomes (earth)--undines are united with, and personify, their element. First mentioned in the alchemical works of medieval botanist Paracelsus, undines appear throughout European folklore. Who are thesemysterious creatures of lakes, oceans, and waterfalls?

"Undines" takes readers directly into the water spirits' realm through stories, personal encounters, and interviews withsuch luminaries as Istiphul, the undine queen whose presence embodies the magical essence of the feminine. Whether seen as fact or fairy tale, "Undines" presents archetypal truths and insights into humannature. The powers and abilities that undines display are latent in us all and crucial to humanity's evolution (or mere survival): harmony with nature, empathy and compassion, a deep capacity to love, and acooperative rather than combative relationship to the world. "Undines" will appeal broadly to readers of mythology, fantasy, and fairy tales, particularly to practitioners that work with nature spirits andelemental beings--Druids, Wiccans, pagans, and those interested in magic and mysticism.
