Shape-Shifting Tree Folk and a Love of Nature

I meet Paul from Alberta, Canada who tells me about his experience with a shape-shifting being. The encounter took place during a visit to a forest environment which he had grown to love.

We discuss the importance of nature in our lives and the instinctive responses which we should always pay attention to.

This is a lovely, heartwarming chat .

Paul will be joining ‘The Curious Crew’ who support the show this summer for an online Q and A plus…

⭐️The bonus episode ⭐️ includes:

🌳 narrated modern encounters from Dr Simon Young’s Fairy Census 2014 – 2017 and Marjorie T. Johnson’s Seeing Fairies, that bear resemblance to the encounter in this episode.

🌳 our extended conversation which continued off-episode

⚡️🍄⚡️MUSHROOM WARNING: I do of course need to add a disclaimer here to protect folks. The brown capped mushroom that looks like Fly Agaric could be Panther Cap which is highly toxic and in rare cases, can kill. Please do not go picking or ingesting mushrooms unless you are with a trained professional.

If you have had a fairy sighting, please complete Dr Simon Young’s ongoing Fairy Census which is found here.

Warning: I do not advise people to pick or ingest mushrooms unless they are with a professionally trained ID expert. Many mushrooms are poisonous and harmful if you don’t know what you’re doing.
