Format: Paperback
I really like Mara Freeman's writings, they are full of spiritual insights, great research and references to Western Mystery literature.

The chapters take you on a journey of revelation and inner work that deepens your own personal insights into the Feminine Divine, Arthurian teachings and the mysteries that surround us in the land and symbols that represent the polarity of energies within our Celtic Ancestral Soul.

Such as the Red and White springs of Glastonbury, the Red and White Rose, and the Red and White Dragons, how they are connected and can teach us so much.

The spiritual exercises gently take you into a deeper understand of the teaching and the meditations, (which are available to buy for MP3 player on Mara's website), so softly and magically assist our journey to personally experiences the energies.

Not many books give you what is in reality a course in Sacred Magic that you can personally explore at your own pace.

I highly recommend this book for those interested in Avalon and Celtic mysteries.

Format: Paperback
Mara Freeman’s Grail Alchemy is a masterpiece of insight and learning into the grail as a powerful spiritual symbol. Well written and engaging, this book covers every conceivable aspect of this symbol from its origins in Celtic times, through Christianity and into the 20th Century of magic and Glastonbury. However, the grail represents a polar quality and it is difficult if not impossible to ignore the other polar qualities and their symbols as well. And so, we explore the grail, the sword, the tree of life and the mystic well. In short, we are taken on a journey of exploration of force-form polarity and its expression in myths, legend and practice over the millennia.

Of course, at the center of this exploration is a yearning for the restoration of the divine form – the Goddess – in the world. After all, isn’t that what the grail stories are about? Mara Freeman argues that case backed up with wonderful insights into myth and legend.

The book covers both the macro and micro aspects of the grail. In looking at the origins and meaning of the grail and its associated symbols and associations, we are exposed to a dual view of creation but also a view of our own duality. Exercises and guided meditations are presented throughout the book to allow the more active reader a window into their own selves. These beautifully written meditations have the power to help each of us find the Goddess within us and reconcile our own opposites in the Great work of alchemy.

This really is an excellent book and one that I shall buy in print format so as to be able to have it on my shelves available for consultation and further meditation when needed.

This is a great path 1 Feb. 2014
By M. Baker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If your soul is drawing you to the path the celtic mystery tradition then this book could be the perfect doorway for you. I have been a student of this tradition for 25 years and I wish it had been available way back at my start. There are many books out there that talk around the tradition and describe it. But there only a few that are the footprints left by someone who has walked the path in depth to its end. Reading this book and doing the work it lays out for you will change you, beware, this tradition is alive. Not only will you discover your soul, and your higher elf, you may even be ripe enough and ready to truly encounter the Grail and so see through the illusion of duality to spirit. This book can lead you there. If you are drawn to the celtic path, then go for it. Just get the CD too so you can really be guided through the journeys. Lastly, once you have worked this path and made it your own, and it lives for you, go read the "Speech of the Grail." It is the only other book I know of other than the original poems, that contain the mysterious power of the Grail. Or better yet read them both at once. Do it for yourself and for the world. The Mystery of the Grail is our birthright and Mara Freeman has opened the doorway to it. M.T. Baker -

A must read 29 Jan. 2014
By Judy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Mara Freeman writes with clarity, scholarly research, and deep inner wisdom about the alchemical mystery of the Holy Grail and its' meaning and symbolism throughout ancient and modern history. The book seems to reflect Mara's alchemical process of her own inner work, her research, and her intuitive understanding of the meaning of the Grail Mystery. Mara provides instructions for the reader's inner journey process, and a CD of the journeys can also be purchased. Mara invites the reader to experience a lovely exploration and explanation of the Grail and, for those who feel drawn to explore more deeply the meaning of the Grail in their own lives, a way to create their own alchemical inner process.

Mara Freeman is the perfect guide and companion for anyone wanting to know more about the Celtic Mystery Tradition and the Grail. I am in awe of the tremendous scholarship and deep inner and outer work that she clearly put in to creating this very rich work. I loved seeing many of the familiar stories blended with new insights and information. Most of all I appreciate her emphasis on the Grail quest as the path of the heart and soul with a grounded foundation. All the exercises and meditations in the book are presented in a most accessible and engaging manner.
