Flying Rowan

Based in the lush Puget Sound region in the Pacific Northwest, the origins of Flying Rowan Healing Arts came after a conversation with the land about what could be done to help awaken inspiration and return a sense of enchantment in times that so often feel hopeless or overwhelming. What is evolving from this conversation is a co-creative endeavour that is inspired by the trees and other allies from the natural world, as well as drawn from the deep pool of ancestral knowledge from Ireland, Wales and other Celtic and Western European lands.
 
This vision continues to unfold, but currently the following goods and services are available, in development, or are planned:
 

  • Visual art and illustrations inspired by the ogham, the natural world and Celtic mythos
  • Ogham readings and consultative services
  • Ogham and herbal oil blends, incenses and teas
  • Various charms and spell kits designed to inspire and to enchant
  • Classes, meditative forest walks and more related to working with the natural world, and in particular with trees

About me

FlyingRowan Sara Olwen

Sara grew up being the odd child who spent her free time wandering outdoors, doodling animals and learning the scientific names of plants. She is now a witch and artist who specializes in ogham and the faery faith tradition. She has worked closely within these animistic spiritual paths for the past 15 years, and has been creating artwork for as long as she can remember.
 
She currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with her super techie husband and her small child. She is proud to be a member of the Puget Sound pagan and magical community. In the more mundane world, she studied as an illustrator and digital artist at Otis College of Art & Design. She also has extensive experience as a writer and narrative game designer. In her free time she can be found tending to her garden, making magical elixirs and making homemade meals with love and care.
 
More information about Sara and her work can be found throughout this site representing her personal and collaborative work as a part of Flying Rowan Healing Arts.
 
Artist’s Statement
 
It is my belief that much of what ails us as a society, and as a species, is the false belief that we are separate from nature. Too many of us have forgotten that we are but one human animal in the larger biosphere with our own part to play- not the dominant species that we have come to view ourselves as. My work hopes to recontextualize humanity and reframe our experiences as being part of this greater whole, not to diminish human potential or imagination, but to set it free from the isolating and self-harming mindset that we alone are sentient beings.
 
If you share this belief and are interested in magical, co-creative work, I would love to hear from you. It is my goal through this site and with Flying Rowan as a whole to collaborate with witches, artists, poets and seers of all stripes to help bring together a vision of a world that is no longer under the spell of disenchantment and to replace it with one that engages us to work in tandem with the non-human world.
