A thoughtful, in-depth guide to Celtic and Druidic magic, filled with ideas and rich material.


Subtitled A Manual of Celtic Magick, this is a rich book on the magical tradition of the Celtic peoples, full of guidance and historical information. It is a treasury of imaginative workings based on old sources, solidly practical yet grounded in the understandings gained from archaeological remains and surviving texts. Of particular prominence throughout are the legendary Welsh bard Taliesin; the concept of awen, sometimes translated as 'inspiration'; Arthurian myth; and the Irish myth cycles. This book is highly recommended for those who are looking for a comprehensive introduction to druidic spirituality and Celtic magic.
