After many years of trying to find a religion which resonated with me, I realized I was a Pagan. I can recall a past life living in Ireland, and a clairvoyant friend told me I was persecuted for being one of the last Pagans when Christianity came there.

I also wanted to learn more of my Irish heritage. These Idiot's Guides vary, some are informative and interesting. This one had a lot of information, and I want to write an article about it. But the writer was very dry and I was bored with the bo

This book is a great book that gives an introduction to the different styles of Celtic Spirituality. It presents the essence of ancient culture and suggests its applications in today's world.

It has down-to-earth profiles of the druids, bards, seers, and other wisdom-keepers. It has excellent advice on how to incorporate the Celtic Wisdom into your own life.

The book has a short history of the Celtic nations, their mythology and lore and it has it in a way that is easy to understand and digest.

A very simple-to-understand book full of good and accurate information about the Celtic path. I highly recommend this book to people starting out and wanting to learn more about the druids or the Iron-age celts.
