Wow. As I read this book, I began to get the feeling that I should climb to the top of a high mountain and speak the words into the wind, allowing them to be carried off and into the hears and hearts of the whole world. Tom Cowan's insightful, enlightening and sometimes funny perspective is fulfilling to read and offers many lessons we can learn if only we'd open up a bit and let the knowledge and passion in.
Yearning for the Wind is a collection of musings on different subjects, but each chapter

This is absolutely my favorite book on Celtic pagan spirituality. (at least, so far.)
