Format: Paperback
'Singing with Blackbirds' is a study of the survival of primal Celtic shamanism in later folk-traditions of Gaelic speaking peoples. This is an insightful and intelligent study that brings together areas of study not normally combined. Even better, it is a book that is both learnéd and accessible, all too rare these days.

The method of the book is simple. It explains what is meant by shamanism, takes examples from around the world to discuss some of the essentials, and then compares this with what we know of Gaelic spiritual practices. Whilst it becomes clear that Druids were not shamans in the narrowest sense of the word, it is also evident that much of what they did was shamanic in form and content.

This book casts light on two areas of interest and illuminates both with original insights. Anyone interested in increasing their understanding of ancestral Druids and the way they worked should read this book.

HASH(0x992ab084) out of 5 stars Would Have Preferred Some Gaelic Tradition, Got World Shamanism Instead 12 May 2015
By C. Vermeers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Could have been much better if the author didn't spend nearly the entire book arguing for a particular term rather than exploring the actual tradition. Not a complete loss only because there are a few useful notes scattered through the book. Unfortunately, the insistence on advocating the term "shaman" for the native practices means that the majority of the book ends up exploring South American, Siberian, North American, African, whatever traditions instead.
