I am a lover of myth, legend & fairy-story & over the years have adapted & set to music numerous tales of wonder from around the world including The Celtic Quest for the Grail - Sir Gawain & the Green Knight - The Six Swans - Vassilsa the Beautiful & many more. I have written two books - The Little Goddess & The Dark Moon & present lectures & workshops on related topics.
I publish a blog and upload content to YouTube every month. My wish is to create material that inspires & sooths the soul.
I am married, have two daughters & live in the UK.

" .... a beautiful rendering of a magical story that takes the listener into an enchanted world where dark powers are overcome by the devoted love of a sister for her brothers. Anne Maria's voice is beautiful and she tells it beautifully and poignantly, drawing the listener into the story and its unfolding. Many congratulations in creating such a moving rendering of one of the great fairy tales." - Anne Baring author of The Dream of the Cosmos: A Quest for the Soul.

DANTE ALIGHIERI in QUEST of PARADISE
A Series of talks in celebration of the 700-year anniversary of Dante’s death in 1321
Presented by Anne Maria Clarke
Enluminure, Giovanni di Paolo, Sienne, v. 1438–44
The quest for Paradise is the quest for consciousness, writes Jungian analyst Helen Luke in her book Dark Wood to White Rose: Journey & Transformation in Dante’s Divine Comedy, but in order to discover the light we must first encounter the darkness. This dark night of the soul is where Dante’s Commedia famously begins.
The journey that follows is universal. It will lead us to the very depths of hell, and then onward, if we survive, to the great Mountain of Purgatory, to a cleansing and purification of our souls in readiness for the great ascent to Paradise and to heaven’s bliss.
Join us as we peer into the mystery of Dante’s greatest work.
