The Druidry Handbook combines both a valuable history of Druidry from its ancient roots to the modern druidic revival with a deep spirituality and highly practical workbook for the path of harmonious connection with the living Earth. Author John Michael Greer offers a hands-on manual of traditional British Druid practice, enabling the reader to explore the Sun path of season celebrations; the Moon path of Meditation; and the Earth Path of living in harmony with Nature. He also examines the history of Druidry, its revival in the nineteenth century; its various contemporary forms, and its relationship to modern Paganism. Greer provides a full explanation of the Druidic wheel of life, the Ogham alphabet, associated myths, and the deities which Druids honor. From ritual and meditation, to enhanced appreciation of Nature and ecological activism, The Druidry Handbook opens the door to a spirituality rooted in the living earth.
