In preparation for a trip to Great Britain next year, I wanted to learn more about British shamanism and selected this book. My goal was accomplished! The author has a long family lineage of authentic shamanism, and she also learned from the wise women of the village where she grew up. Not only does the author share ancient knowledge, she also ties into the many ways modern civilization has overlooked, and practically destroyed, our connections to nature and Mother Earth. This book has given me ...more

An intelligent and informative blend of history, natural history, mythology and spirituality. It documents the discovery and understanding of the sacred spirit of Britain, through the Goddess Elen of the Ways and the God of the Green, via the ancient roads and trackways and the energy currents known as ley lines.
The book shows us how far we have digressed from our roots, both physical and spiritual, and gives a dire warning of how our future may be if this doesn't change. For anyone interested

Shamanism - that's the strange thing that people used to do a long time ago in Siberia, right? It doesn't exist any more, right? Wrong.

If you're interested in shamanism, there are multiple ways to approach the practice, and books are more accessible for many folks than workshops and classes. If you're like me and your heart calls to a particular part of the world, perhaps one of the places your ancestors came from, then you might want to investigate the shamanic practice that is native to that r

Elen of the Ways by Elen Sentier is a valuable addition to my shamanic library. Sentier is an awenydd, that is a spirit keeper and tale weaver in British native shamanism. What's that? You didn't know the native shamanic tradition still existed in the UK? That's why you need to read this book. It is the one I have been seeking for years.

Elen of the Ways, for whom the author is named no doubt, is the reindeer goddess of the northern forests that circle the world. She is the Antlered Goddess, a re

Elen Sentier's book is well researched and a thoroughly interesting read, drawing on her own experiences and history this book brings together a huge amount of information about this amazing but elusive Goddess.

All my life I’ve followed the deer trods of Elen of the Ways. My mother's mother was a witch from the Isle of Man and my father was a cunning man from Lancashire. I grew up in an ancient village on the edge of Exmoor where the church is dedicated to the goddess Iwerydd and my aunt owned her sacred well. My parents and the elder folk in the village taught the ways of the awenydd, the old native sha ...more
