The Voices of the Wells – Well Maiden and Water
In the 13th-century poem The Elucidation, we are introduced to the Well Maidens. They would give freely of their sacred waters and food to those who passed by. These beautiful maiden are more than they seem! They are Water Nymphs, the spirits of the springs, oracles, and the voices of the wells. In this talk, you will be introduced to these Watery Women, and learn how their story parallels our approach to water in the modern day. We will seek their wisdom and pull from their story to learn how to navigate a world full of polluted and stolen water and what we can do to restore the wasteland.
