"Old Witch" of the Russian peasantry,
keeper of pagan Slavic rites and festivals.
The wisdom of the land
is her purview.
She knows healing herbs
and blessing charms.
Her favored mode of instruction is the Skazki: mythic tales of transformative
quests for the Waters of Life and Death, and initiatory encounters with
and the Baba Yaga.
