Alison Leigh Lilly

Described by readers as rich, thoughtful, deeply reflective, fearless, honest and “some of the best writing in the Pagan blogging field,” Holy Wild by Alison Leigh Lilly has become one of the most popular Druid blogs online.

In this space, the founder of the blog Alison Leigh Lilly shares social commentary, philosophical contemplation and personal reflections, writing from a place of connection, longing and curiosity about the sacredness of ordinary life, and our place in a Spirit-infused world.

Alison grew up a shy Irish Catholic, exploring the woods and fields surrounding her childhood home. Seeking the spiritual heritage of her Celtic ancestors, she discovered poetry and story, mud and blood mingled with the scent of peat fires and the slick feel of damp stone. Eventually, these interests landed her squarely in academia, where she graduated valedictorian of her class.
