Waterstones Says

Revelling in the small wonders that underpin our existence, May's luminous call to embrace the magic of the natural world is a life-affirming path to mental wellbeing and calm.

Signed Edition

A Standard Edition is available here

A balm for our times from the internationally bestselling author of Wintering.

Our sense of enchantment is not only sparked by grand things. The awe-inspiring, the numinous, is all around us, all the time. It is transformed by our deliberate attention. The magic is of our own conjuring.

Feeling bone-tired, anxious and overwhelmed by the rolling news cycle and the pandemic age, Katherine May seeks to unravel the threads of a life wound too tightly. Could there be another way to live - one that feels more meaningful, more grounded in the places beneath our feet? One that would allow us to feel more connected, more rested and at ease, even as seismic changes unfold on the planet?

Craving a different path, May explores the restorative properties of the natural world and begins to rekindle her sense of wonder. It is a journey that takes her from sacred wells to wild moors, from cradling seas to starfalls. Through deliberate attention and ritual, she finds nourishment and a more hopeful relationship to the world around her. Enchantment is an invitation to each of us to experience life in all its sensual complexity and to find the beauty waiting for us there.

The Waterstones Podcast - Katherine May

Description

After the disconcerting period of the last few years, with all its disruption and reordering of lives, many people were left with a sense that things weren’t quite right, though it proved hard to put your finger on exactly what was wrong. Feelings of fatigue, anxiety and the great overwhelm led writer Katherine May to seek a closer connection to nature’s ability to inspire both wonder and something slightly more magical - enchantment. We sat down to talk about play, pebbles and why you’ll never regret a paddle.
