Huldufólk: The Inhabitants of Iceland’s Faërian Realm

This is a beautiful and magical presentation sure to delight anyone who loves Nature, the hidden realms, and mythology. Also, belated congratulations and blessings to Becca and Matt for your marriage. I loved the photos and video of your honeymoon trip to Iceland. Thank you for sharing!

In the North Atlantic there is an island, and it is said that upon this island live two nations: the human nation of Iceland, and a second nation, one that is mysterious and veiled. This is the realm of the Huldufólk, Iceland’s “hidden people.”

This presentation, given at Esalen Institute in the autumn of 2016, offers a glimpse into the world of the Huldufólk and the dynamic landscape in which they live.

    I’ve just started listening to Becca’s talks, this is wonderful! Her and Matt are breath’s of fresh air, bringing a much needed intellectualism into the magical earth realm. I honor you both and your incredible work!

    That was simply *fascinating*. Does it complement or fit with what your own experience of the faeries has been here in the US, Laura?

  3. Thank you, Mitch! Yes, I’ve followed her talks for years, and I agree, re-enchanting the academy is as important as bringing some serious study to the magical earth realm.

  4. Thank you, Kieron! Yes, it’s quite similar to what I’ve noticed here in the US and especially in some of the really old forests in Canada, except maybe not even 5-10% here strongly believe in the Hidden Folk. There’s a much more fundamentalist fear factor happening in the US. I would love if Christians and Elves (and Faery lovers) could more easily co-exist in the US. I’ve never heard anyone talk about Elf Cathedrals here, for example. In terms of the interactions, though, yes, right on. 🙂
