Soul of Russia by Cherry Gilchrist

Book Description

In the heart of Russia, fairy stories, folk art and customs still carry hints of the old ways of perceiving the gods and spirits of home and nature. The Russian soul, whether in the city or the country, remains open to the Slavic way of life and its ancient beliefs. Such traditions link human life to the landscape and rhythms of nature in ways that have been lost elsewhere. 'Soul', dusha, is of prime importance to Russians, and not only reigns supreme in their art and culture, but is essential to understanding the Russian outlook on the world.Many Russians, even those trained in modern schools, such as archaeologists, scientists and doctors, are open to embracing this heritage of myth and the mysteries of the universe, and include it in their everyday outlook. Cherry Gilchrist has visited Russia over fifty times, and researched its traditional lore, arts and crafts, often staying deep in the Russian countryside. Weaving her firsthand experience with a thorough knowledge of history and culture, she invites us to enter the world of the Russian soul and discover its magic.
