More About the Author

Elen grew up in the old ways of Britain through her family and the elders of the villages where she lived. Her mother was a witch from the Isle of Man, and her father a somewhat reluctant shaman and engineer. Many times she sat all night with her father and uncle under a tree watching foxes and dormice, weasels and rabbits, badgers and hunting owls, and all the other night denizens of the wild woods. She grew up in an environment full of everyday magic and explored all sorts of magical paths.

She comes from a long family lineage in the British native tradition and lived her early childhood years on Dartmoor learning the old ways from her father, uncles, aunts and neighbours. Her dad was an engineer and amateur historian-cum-archaeologist, he took her all over the moor playing and telling her the stories of the wonderful ancient places on the moor. One of her uncles was a woodsman, he could call a wild falcon down to his fist or sit with an adder twined around his wrist. Another uncle was a smallholder, he would carry a ball of swarmed bees in his bare hands.

When she was eight years old her dad's engineering job moved him from south to north Devon so Elen came to live on the edge of Exmoor. As well as her dad and other relations their next-door neighbour was the village midwife and healer who also did the laying out of the dead. Elen learned herb lore, healing and lyke-lore (the ways of the dead) from her. Her aunt owned the village sacred well, and others in the village who walked the old path took her to participate in the old seasonal rituals, like the Night of the Mothers and calling the land spirits with the harness-bells before ploughing. Ploughing continued in the village up to the late 1960s.

Her mother's mother was a witch from the Isle of Mann. Her dad's family were connected with Annie Besant, Rudolf Steiner, and with the Theosophical Society through her grandmother's cousin, Ursula Bright. Ursula bought the Benares Centre for the Society and Ursula's daughter, Esther, was the close friend of Annie Besant.

Elen studied dance, drama and art at university but decided she wasn't good enough to make a career out of it so she went on to work for the MOD, first as a finance officer and then as a computer engineer and software designer. In her spare time she continued dancing ... working as a demonstrator for a friend who taught for Arlene Phillips at the London Pineapple. After a successful twenty-year career with the MOD she changed horses to train as a transpersonal psychotherapist with Ian Gordon-Brown and Barbara Somers, she then developed a flourishing practice in London specialising in dream-work.

Elen has walked the shaman path all her life and made many friends including C Maxwell Cade, Rose Gladden, Colin Bloy, Paul Devereux, Michael Poynder, Tom Graves, Hamish Miller, Vicky Wall, Theo Gimbel, Lilla Bek, Caitlin and John Matthews, June Kent, Suzi Crockford, Ros Simons. She also studied Alice Bailey's work for seven years and found it very valuable. Elen never stops learning with the land, the spirits of place and otherworld as well as with people. There is always more to learn ... our pre-historic ancestors were quite amazingly knowing, knowledgeable and refined people and gave us wonderful ways which we can rediscover if we wish. As she says, there just aren't enough hours in the day to fit everything in!

I've always been fascinated with lore and myths knowing they hold a seed of truth but also knowing that the truth is very hard to find! Shaman Pathways - The Celtic Chakras opens up a doorway for us so that we can look further into the ancient stories and myths of Britain. I found that it only took one thing to spark the creative part of my brain - that lightbulb moment - which then led me to follow my thoughts, weaving everything into a whole. I also love to find out the roots of words which this touches upon too.

The reader is taken through the Celtic chakras and the spiral path is explained. You will find diagrams and exercises as well as the myths explored. I need to have an experiential component to anything spiritual - I need concrete and real proof - which is provided within these pages. If you take time out and complete the journeys and meditations, you will experience things for yourself. The most beautiful for me has been the Northern Lights journey. I loved the explanation of the Rainbow Warriors and will be meditating on this.

The hardest thing for me is re-thinking the healing use of Reiki (chakras from base to crown). The spiral makes complete sense and this is something I will be experimenting with during self-healing. I'm not sure how I'm going to feel about my guided chakra meditation (on CD)!

A deeper look at the myths is fascinating in itself but if your focus is purely the chakras, you do need to have some knowledge of them and their purpose before reading this book.

This is a book I will be reading again and it has been useful for me in giving me pointers to researching for myself.

I would like to thank the publishers for providing an e-copy in exchange for an honest review.

Format: Paperback
A very interesting exploration of chakras from a Celtic perspective, based on the idea that "Chakras are not a purely eastern concept but one found throughout the mystery traditions all over the world." The author doesn't approach this by clumsily bolting on western pagan notions, instead outlining a coherent system of working with and conceptualizing chakras in a way that incorporates how our Celtic ancestors understood and worked with the world around them. In doing this, she draws in duality, spirals, caers, cauldrons, the World Tree, Arianrhod, Ceridwen and Brighid to create a compelling argument to back up her ideas, including correspondences along the way that can be used by practitioners who wish to work solely within one tradition, or who wish to explore new and different ways of working.

I suspect that this will be a book that others will work with and reference. It feels like a beginning, an opening up, and I'm sure people from many traditions will find much that they can learn from experimenting with the ideas contained in here.

What an inspiring and interesting book! Opening us to the knowledge and wisdom found in the chakras within Celtic history, using such wonderful Goddesses as Elen of the Ways, Arianrhod and Ceridwen to discover your own energy centres. I love the way that the Celtic chakra system uses a spiral rather than the usual straight line of chakra centres - makes perfect sense. If you have ever worked with your chakras or thought about doing so - I encourage you to purchase this book, you will have your eyes, heart, soul and energy centres opened and you won't look back.

This is a fascinating look Celtic mythology through the eyes of someone who has spend considerable time seeking signs and evidence of the chakras within them. The symbolism of the stories and myths is teased as we are taken on a journey ourselves from The Abred or three realms, though Elen of the Ways, Arianrhod, Ceridwen and the Cauldrons of Poesy, Preidue Annwfn:Arthur's Raid on the Underworld until we finally rest with Brighid.

On the way we are constantly reminded of the spiral path of the Celtic shaman, the one that takes us though the chakras in pairs which will resonate with anyone who balances chakras in this way and understands the connections between the pairs. We are given exercises to help us to change our consciousness, meet the three cauldrons, move the position of our chakras and sit within the rainbow dance.

As the author herself says in her final paragraph:
' The Celtic chakra tradition shows us this dance through the story, riddle song, dance; we learn the dances and draw them all together to the centre point, the still point within each of us...where the dance is'.

I was so inspired after reading this book. The meditations took me on a beautiful and meaningful journey where I felt right at home. I loved to read of our own incredible goddesses inspiring us to use the celtic chakras, some that may have been forgotten about or even unheard of in britain until now.

A superb book, I shall be dipping in to it on a regular basis so that I can experience those magical and fulfilling meditations over and over again.

Elen Sentier's Celtic Chakras intrigued me - I have worked with the Eastern tradition of chakras for many years, and seeing this interpretation of the concept was refreshing and interesting. I really liked the spiral concept of chakra energy, radiating from the heart centre that reflects the spiral so common a Celtic motif. It also reflected some of the Tantric teachings of flow, how it moves up and through and then back and down, as opposed to movement from the base chakra to the crown only. As a Pagan Portals book from Moon Books, it is a good, short introduction to the Celtic Chakras, which can be further explored on one's own. I look forward to Sentier's other works! - Joanna van der Hoeven, author of Zen Druidry
