This revised and expanded version was written out of the need to provide an introduction to the Druid Way based on a Celtic metaphysic. The authors bring a wide experience of druidic practice and thought to bear and present a work that will allow those new to the Way to take their first steps with confidence. However, it is also a book that will be of immense interest to those who are already Druid as it approaches the subject with a fresh vision and a passion that will inspire many to re-examine their roots.
The book is divided, appropriately, into three sections. The first part, ‘How The World Came To Be’, looks at ancestral Celts and Druids and examines not just the history of the Druid Way, but also the metaphysic that gives it continued life. The second part, ‘The Shape Of The World’, explores some of the philosophical concepts of the modern Druid Way as well as the importance of the Matter of Britain in understanding what it is to be Druid. The final part, ‘Working In The World’, looks at some of the practical aspects of being Druid.
This is not a complete course in becoming Druid as that cannot be presented in written form. What it offers is an introduction to those who are interested in learning what it is to be Druid, as well as offering a way forward for those whose interest becomes commitment.
The historical and archaeological content has been revised in line with latest research, all the material on deity has been gathered into a new chapter, the reference section has been updated, and the authors and publisher have taken the opportunity to correct minor errors that crept in at the printing stage of the first edition. źródło opisu: http://www.greyhouseinthewoods.org/path.htm źródło okładki: http://www.greyhouseinthewoods.org/path.htm
