The spiritual path of the Druids leads us through the beauty and richness of nature to the wild places of the heart. The ancient teachings of the Druids represent one of the well-springs of inspiration of the western spiritual tradition. In the past, Druids and Druidesses were magicians and poets, counsellors and healers, shamans and philosophers. They lived in harmony with the earth and her seasons, and their mysteries were inspired by the magical energies of the natural world. Today, the wisdom and teachings of the Druids continue to inspire spiritual seekers across the world. In this inspirational book, Philip Carr-Gomm takes us into the sacred grove of the Druid mysteries, showing us how we can transform our lives and deepen our connection with the world of Nature and Spirit.
