5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and wonderful, 14 Jan 2014
I really enjoy this unique and deep take on Druidry from a shamanic perspective. Reads will be given everything they need to dive right into these practices in a meaningful way that will surely help seekers grow in their path. Very easy to read and informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique and moving work, 3 Mar 2013
Fiona Tinker's book Pagan Portals: Pathworking Through Poetry is one of the most unique works I've read in quite awhile. As someone who reads a great number of Pagans books on a constant basis, I found it very refreshing to read something like this - something that has truly not been done before.

Tinker's book focuses on the work of three poets who found their home in the British Isles: MacLeod, Yeats, and O'Sullivan - all early contemporary Pagans of centuries past who found their place in the world through their moving spiritual poetry. Tinker guides us through some of their poems that we can use as a guide for deeper connection via the tool of pathworking - the ability to traverse the inner realms.

Through this book, I found myself intrigued by classical poetry in ways I never have before. The ways in which Tinker weaves the work into the goal of deeper self-knowledge and spiritual revelation is revolutionary. I recommend this book to anyone who wishes to ignite the flames of the poet within. This is a book for all those who wish to look to the great creative works of the past in the hope for greater connection to the present self.

5.0 out of 5 stars A cunning way to experience tarot, 30 Dec 2012
This review is from: Weegie Tarot (Paperback)
The Weegie Tarot is a book unlike anything else currently out regarding tarot symbolism. The storyline narrative of the book weaves in the lessons of the arcana alongside the story of a strange and humorous character. Each chapter details stories from the character's life while subtly highlighting the archetype of a specific card. In short, someone without any knowledge of tarot could pick up this book for a good story and learn much about the tarot by accident alone. This method of learning speaks well of the author's knowledge of the subject and her ability to impart the wisdom she's gleaned from this system.

I recommend Weegie Tarot to not only students of tarot, but also to those looking for an entertaining story about a seemingly-usual man with quite an unusual life. The tarot to me is all about detailing the stories we each have as part of our lives. This book synthesizes both the story and the spirit behind it.
