The Fool and the Faire
Listen now
Find the wisdom disguised as folly in tonight’s folklore-inspired bedtime story.   In tonight’s story, you attend the local Renaissance Faire for the first time for their traditional “Feast of Fools.” On this themed occasion, one attendee is chosen as the Royal Fool for a day, and today – it is you. Donning your new title, you receive special treatment for the day, but soon you discover that your role comes with unforeseen abilities and insights. The experience allows you to connect with the misunderstood archetype of the Fool.   If you’re still awake as the story concludes, I’ll guide you through a relaxing visualization for embracing your inner wisdom.   ✨Pre-order is live for the Sleep & Sorcery book!✨ Sleep & Sorcery: A Collection of Enchanting Bedtime Stories, Rituals, and Spells for Meaningful Rest, unlimited paperback coming August 2024 from Crossed Crow Books.
