Book Description

1 May 2011 Made Easy
Graeme K Talboys has been Druid for a long time. An encounter with a spirit in a beech grove fifty years ago convinced him that the eye rarely sees all there is to see. A few years later he realised there were ways to discover more about those other worlds amongst the trees. The word Druid didn't drift into his consciousness until he was a teenager, but by then he was already exploring the Forest and fascinated by the history and archaeology of ancestral Celts. Since then, Graeme has been a teacher in schools and museums. He now writes, passing on what he has learned through fiction and non-fiction. He spent some time in a Druid Order, completing their formal training, but is much more comfortable exploring the Forest on his own. Since 2001 he has administered the Hedge Druid Network with fellow Druid, Julie White.

More About the Author

Graeme K Talboys was born in Hammersmith. He still blames his parents.

Since then, he has been coming to terms with the fact that he had his head taken apart in the '60s, whereafter the bits were exposed to loud music from various sources, strange movies, stranger writings, and some downright weird people. It eventually got put back together, but there were bits left over and they never did find the budgie.

In between being a space cadet and teaching in schools and museums, he has written nine works of non-fiction, eight of which have been published (on museum education, drama, and matters spiritual). He has also written more than a dozen novels. The first (written when he was seventeen) was lost on a train. The next two (written in his early twenties) he wishes had been. He has also completed three spy novels, a science fiction novel, a children's novel, a number of fantasy novels, and several 'literary' works including a collection of short stories. Not all of these are currently in print, but a goodly and growing number are.

He is currently working on something new (which will be allowed nowhere near a train).

Format:Paperback
There are now a number of brief introductions to the Druid Way (or Druidism, Druidry, whatever your preferred term is) but this is something rather differet and very special. A slim volume packed full of insight and wisdom along with one or two quite complex ideas, though nothing that falls outside of the 'made easy' comfort zone. Firmly grounded in the here and the now, it offers a clear and attractive guide to anyone wanting to discover more about Druids both historical and contempoarary, and maybe embark upon the Way themselves, it also offers fresh inspiration for anyone already following the Way - the wheel turns back to basics so we can progress once more. I first read it through in an evening's single sitting, but know that it's something I'll be referring to for many years to come and that with each re-reading there will be deeper insights to discover. Three sections of three chapters each - because of course Druids like to do things in threes!

I really enjoyed reading this book, it explains what being a Druid is all about in a very easy to read way. It gives the basics of what is a good way to live, if that is what you are searching for. At the end of the book there is a comprehensive list of books to read if you wish to continue reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really useful introduction 5 Jan 2014
By Yvonne
Format:Kindle Edition
As a complete novice regarding Druidry I found The Druid Way to be an excellent introduction and overview.

Talboys looks initially at the background of Druidry through the Celts and Celtic metaphysics before looking specifically at what the 'Inner World', 'Outer World' and Other World' mean from the perspective of a Druid. Finally he writes about what he calls the Druid Way i.e Druidism in the modern world, and the purpose of ceremony and ritual.

I really appreciated the fact that the author dealt with the whole area of modern day Druidry with a light touch rather than go into great depth about any specific area or a Druids life or beliefs. This is balanced by a comprehensive reading list which then allows the reader to follow up anything that is of particular interest.

In particular I enjoyed the final section of the book which is devoted to practical ways of incorporating Druidry into every day life. When looking at any belief system it is important to look not only at the history of any way of being but how it applies to and can be lived now. The Druid Way does this.

I would certainly recommend this to anyone interested in starting to look at Druidry or who is looking for an introduction or overview without having to plough through reams of possibly unnecessary information to get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book Review on The Druid Way Made Easy 21 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback
It is by a Druid named Graeme K Talboy ("Clas Myrddin") and it is called "The Druid Way Made Easy".

It comes in 3 Parts with 3 Chapters in each Part having a total of 9 Chapters, so this Book is actually a Huge Gigantic 3X3 Triad of Wisdom. That in itself impresses me.

The First Chapter is called "The Celts".

In this Chapter, he goes over the History and Origins of the Celts and that the First Traces of Celtic Culture date back to about 1200 BC and actually started in Halstatt Age of the Celts. The Halstatt Age of the Celts came in Four Stages which ended in about 500BC and then came the La Tene Age of Celticism. It is during the La Tene Celtic Age that Celtic Culture had come to Ireland, Britain, Spain, France, Northern Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and Eastern Europe.

It is then recounted how is was in about 295 that the Romans started their Conquests into Territories of Celtic Culture and that was when Celtic Druidism suffered after the Romans managed to Conquer them after many Decades of Fighting for control of their Lands.

Then the Chapter goes into how the Social Structure of Celtic Culture was Orgainized and was discovered from Remains of the Cellts Late Iron Age. Most of Celtic Society of Agricultural and they was fair less Militaristic than most other Contemporary Cultures, athough they did have a Class of Professional Warriors that served Tribal Chiefs and acted as Border Security Patrol Guards and acting as Policemen. They did not have a Great Standing Army, but when the Alarm was Signaled by the Professional Warrior Patrol Guards, all Adult Villagers, Male and Female, would Arm Themselves and run out and Fight the Invader.
