The one problem with any work that wishes to address the beliefs, religious and magical practices of the Celts is lack of written records and unbroken oral traditions.This book acknowledges this fact and does it's best to present a working sytem of shamanic technique that relies upon a past of twilight and dream that has been, thanks to the 'Bloody Romans' Monty Python's Life Of Brian (Immaculate Edition) [DVD] [1979]forever lost to us. Thankfully, the author's knowledge of Native British mysticism helps to fill in the (considerable) blanks, leaving us with a work that is refreshingly free of sugary 'new age' sensiblities unlke certain other publications Faeriecraft: Treading the Path of Faerie Magic. The end result is a practical guide to shamanism, that at the time of it's first publication managed to free the practice from the cliche of Native American trappngs.

For anyone interested in the Western traditions, *anything* by either of the Matthews is always worth a look. This book provides a useful introduction.

My only quibble with this is its dogmatic tone.

There was so much dogmatic '*this* is how it is' stuff in the book that I was going to give it three stars (being a catmatic person, myself). However, I've reconsidered and award it four.

An excellent and practical hands on guide to working Celtic shamanism, incorporating well researched and interesting practices. A Quality shamanic manual from some of the Masters of the Celtic Tradition.
