Welcome to Fair Folk: a podcast, community, and lush grove of resources for those interested in European folklore, pagan spirituality and animism, and in developing a rich connection to themselves and to the land.
Together, with the aid of pre-Christian tradition, ritual, and music, we work to dismantle the wounds of empire (both in their external & internal forms), and draw on the ways of our ancestors to cultivate a life of spiritual presence & true abundance, grounded in fellow-feeling with all of Earth’s creatures.

Fair Folk Almanac
Each month, we’ll deliver to you a special episode that takes a deep dive into the folklore, rituals, and traditions of the month ahead. You’ll learn about the season’s significance on the wheel of the year, how our ancestors celebrated it, and how you can bring the magic of the time into your own life. All, of course, graced and garlanded by traditional song and music.
Live Q&As with Danica
When you join the Conjuration level of our Patreon, you’ll receive access to twice-monthly live Q&As hosted by Danica, along with other community members. This is the perfect opportunity to receive answers to any questions that came up for you while listening to the podcast, or about your spiritual practice as a whole. Our conversations are lively, encouraging, and richly resourced.

Walk & Talk
Are you feeling stuck, stagnant, or under-resourced in your traditional spiritual path?
Or you’ve heard an episode of my podcast that got you so inspired and fired up, and you wonder where I got that information, and can I tell you more? There’s something THERE that speaks to you and you want to go so much deeper with it.
Maybe you simply want to connect with the wisdom of your ancestors and you don’t know where to start.
Or you’re not even sure exactly what you want to say, but you KNOW are in need of more abundance around your experience of traditional European spirituality. You want more ritual, more magic, more… power.
Perhaps you’ve heard me speak on abundance mindset and folklore, and there’s a particular custom or tradition you want to engage with, but it seems scary, or restrictive, or closed off from you, and you want a fresh perspective on the subject that makes you feel powerful and free.
Is this you?
I am here for you. I’ve experienced, and suffered, all of these things, and then developed powerful strategies and insights around them that have given me such profound breakthroughs, I am just bursting to share that nourishment, that richness, with you.
If these words resonate, if you feel a “yes” in your body when you read this, I invite you to join me for an hour-long Walk and Talk: a personalized brainstorming session where we can dive deep into your questions and instincts about northern European cultural heritage, folklore and paganism.
I find that it is in walking that I have my best breakthroughs, and history is full of Eureka moments found when the body is in motion and relaxed. I will likely be walking during the conversation, but you will have my full attention. You are welcome to walk during our conversation as well!
A Walk and Talk is a low-key but high-vibration conversation where you can pick my brain for folklore or paganism facts, and new, open-hearted, abundant ways that you can engage with cultural and soul heritage, whatever that path looks like for you.
The purpose is to connect with a kindred spirit and elevate your mindset and practice so you can go forward feeling motivated, lifted, and in FLOW, into the next stage of your personal evolution and connection with the ancestors.
To be clear: A Walk and Talk isn’t a request for new research, or an invitation to a personal relationship. I will, however, follow up with an email listing all of the resources we discuss and anything else that occurs to me afterwards that I think would benefit your spiritual and cultural practice.
Each one-hour session is $333 US. I am so excited to walk and talk with you!
Here's how to sign up:
1) Book a Walk and Talk through Calendly
2) Pay for your booking through PayPal
Once I receive your payment, you can consider your booking confirmed.
Eco Tote Bag
Danica's podcast is so beautiful. The music, the history... I could listen to them all more than once. It's like food for the soul.
An amazing podcast for folklore lovers
"I stumbled across this podcast . . . and it blew me away! If you’re interested in European fairy tales and folklore this is IT!"
Wonderful, cozy, entrancing
"I'm so glad I found this podcast! Thank you, Danica, for this beautiful collection of music and stories. So much of the music is from the lands my ancestors came from, and even those I don't have (known) blood connection to have been pulling on my heart."
Worth Every Second
Each episode is a beautiful journey into the past that brings life to old traditions, yet it also strengthens your sense of home and belonging in the present. You can tell Danica puts so much heart and soul, time and energy into each episode. Absolutely worth listening to every episode and definitely worth subscribing to her Patreon (the monthly Almanacs are particularity good)! Thank you Danica!
Beautiful Beyond Words
Danica is a dowsing rod for the last bits of magic left among humans. The music, the interviews are so rich with deeply embodied beauty my throats tightens and my cheek pinches like I'm eating the finest chocolate I have ever tasted and just a bite is so rich I can hardly process it. I savor the podcasts in little bits sometimes because I'm so overwhelmed with it all. Wherever her attention turns beneath her listening ear an unfolding occurs and the result of this flowering stirs something deep in my blood, a remembrance, a feeling from a dream.
