Willow - Keeper of the Tolmen

Willow, a mystical Keeper who brings light energy and healing to the moor, is Keeper of the Tolmen stone, which sits on the bank of the North Teign river, at Scorhill. Willow protects and blesses those who believe in its healing powers and graciously leaves hag stones for mortals who have enough faith to climb through the Tolmen.

 A Keeper is the Genius Loci of a specific ancient place, and in this instance, locations on Dartmoor in Devonshire. It is the spirit of the land and is a sentinel that protects the sacred nature of the site. One can think of them as essentially caretakers that still live among us, but are in spirit form. They are truly enchanted nature spirits like faeries, elves, and gnomes, and are magical in every sense of the word.

"I feel that we all hope we never get to be too old to fly to Never-Never Land or go through a wardrobe into Narnia...We want to think that just around the bend in the forest, we'll find fairies dancing in a ring."
