“Suddenly the sky overhead is alive. From east and southeast, west and northwest, large black birds fly, travelling in their groups of hundreds, swirling, cawing, interweaving, dancing a greeting in the air. The sky is thick black feathered. We watch in awe as they combine and dissipate above our heads, as though we are lying on the bottom of the ocean, looking up at the surface world. Then, without signal or warning, they circle the heart of the wood and land in hidden roosts. Silence falls once more.”

After months of feeling lost and burned out, a chance encounter with crows begins an adventure in the dark woods – inner and outer – leading to a strange and powerful initiation.

Enter the dark woods. Follow the crow, the moon and the mushroom on a journey of transformation and remembering.

Praise

Powerful, stunning, and transformative writing.

Mary Lunnen, author of six books including The Powerful Voice of the Quiet Ones and Your Compass Rose Speaks

Like breadcrumbs along the path, Lucy Pearce sprinkles stories, images, and insights about the crow as she leads us deeper into the dark woods of our imagination in search of our authentic selves. This is a book to meditate on and nest in, often. It is filled with the everyday magic of life.

Mary Reynolds Thompson, author of Reclaiming the Wild Soul and the forthcoming The Way of the Wild Soul Woman

In a similar way to how Clarissa Pinkola Estés revealed to us the magic of the wild wolf, Lucy Pearce and the stories of women in this book bring alive the archetypal Animal Queendom medicine of the Crow an enchanted mirror to show us who we really are and how not to be afraid of the mystery of darkness, so we can heal at a soul level and reconnect to who we were born as, before our conditioning.

Nicole Barton, founder of the Archetypal Apothecary Mystery School and host of The Secret Witch Show

Crow Moon is a book of talismans. In its polyvocal narrative all singing and cackling together, and in Lucy Pearce’s deft weaving, the book is rich with dark, fertile doorways. Crow Moon calls you to the magic of the winged and whispering. Trust that your longing heart will find a home here.

Risa Dickens, co-author of Missing Witches: Reclaiming True Histories of Feminist Magic and New Moon Magic: 13 Anti-Capitalist Tools for Resistance and Re-Enchantment

A fascinating, challenging, enchanting flight through the raven-dark heart of the wilds, what it is to be lost and to find oneself.

Sarah Robinson, author of Yoga for Witches, Yin Magic and Kitchen Witch

This book feels like a fever dream, In a good way. In the way that fevers break patterns of pathology and allow the healing crisis to emerge. It reminds me of the health crises of those medieval female mystics. The Hildegards, the Julians, the Teresas of Avila, the Catherines of Sienna, cartographers of the female dark night of the soul. Lucy H. Pearce has drawn us a map, a 21st century GPS, to our essential selves.

Gina Martin, author of the When She Wakes series

Meet the artist: also Lucy H. Pearce!

Lucy H. Pearce cover artist and author
Womancraft Publishing is proud to celebrate not just the words, but the images of talented women too.

LUCY H. PEARCE paints the inner world of dreams, archetypes and pure energy, featuring on the cover of Creatrix, Reaching for the Moon, Moon Time and She of the Sea.

Symbols emerge which speak the language of the soul – the moon, spirals, trees, cherry blossom, feathers, birds and women’s bodies in all their beauty. Colours and energies shimmer and swirl: there is a sense of flow and meditative movement in her paintings that demands contemplation from the viewer, a shifting to another state of being.

Using a multi-layered intuitive painting technique, she builds up layer upon layer of rainbow colour: her paintings evolve from abstraction to dreamlike imagery. Her recent work incorporates her love of zentangles.
