I began reading this book determined not to just put it down, never to come back to it again. The thing about Celtic Magic, for me, is that I find it a hard subject to get into. I love esoteric subjects, find them so fascinating, especially witchcraft and magic, but Celtic Magic has always left me cold.

This book, however, was different right from the beginning. What I usually find when reading anything on Celtic Magic is how long winded it is. I find it takes me so long to take in what the

Kristoffer is so engaging and interesting. He is knowledgeable, but his writing style is conversational. I learned a lot, but it wasn't a struggle. One of the things i am learning right now, is that I can translate some of the celtic methods to my home in Northern California. We have different trees and plants and animals which belong in our place that can be honored and consulted in a similar way.

For Druids and Witches following a Celtic tradition or path, the resources for learning how to incorporate magic into their practice may seem at once inexhaustible and at the same time underwhelming. It's so challenging to be sure that the book or teacher you are working with actually understands magic, let alone how it might impact your practice.The Book of Celtic Magic: Transformative Teachings from the Cauldron of Awen by Kristoffer Hughes, however, is a treasure trove of Celtic wisdom, ...more

I really enjoyed the writing style. Right up front, he mentions that his version of Celtic would not include any Irish tradition and would focus only on Welsh. Though I follow the Irish tradition, this book forced me to expand into that side of Celtic beliefs.

This rating may or may not change in the future. I was able to complete a few of the meditations on this book some of which felt very enlightening.
What concerns me is that while he does provide a rich history of the celts and a vast image of the Celtic divinities and dieties, Kristoffer Hughes is not one to keep grounded into a positive realm. The way he goes about with the attributions of the digits and the using of the bones is interesting though not so realistic as to what a modern witch

Good book

A good book on magic based on celtic nature philosophy. If you have read a few books on this topic before you will probably find that there's not so much new stuff to learn from it but for beginners it's a very good book.
