Water Folklore, part 1 - Women And Water

women tending to the well-being of Water ... next session Sunday 2st May 2023

about this afternoon session ...

This episode of Nature Folklore is mainly dedicated to the Women Of The Water community that communicate at womenofthewater.org and at gatherings and events around the world, though this community is currently mainly Ireland based.

The folklore and mythology tradition of water, seemingly since the existence of humans, has been story guided by women either as human beings, or mentored through various entities such as goddesses, sidhe, fairies, nymphs and sprites. 

So the leading theme of this week's Nature Folklore is to be guided by some of this folklore to share how women have inspired their families and local communities to tend to the well-being of water. Also, with intent to inspire more women to become connected and involved with water care too.

It is often women that connect and gather to defend abuse of local water, not just from protest but from education and apprenticeship in water caring skills, that includes apprenticeship in reviving skills from our water caring instincts.

From folklore we have goddesses of rivers and loughs, an interpretation of sheela na gigs is water related. and at sacred and blessed wells we have the presence of what we interpret as sidhe, nymphs, and other entities. Some of this episode's session will include stories and presentations of these. 

Do you have any poems or stories about Water, especially related to the care of water and the entities present in water folklore such as the Sidhe, Fairies, Goddesses and other feminine entities of water? Please offer to share your stories and poems as a guest. You can be live on the 'Nature Folklore' show ,or send me pre-recorded video or audio. Please message me with what you have to share.
