5.0 out of 5 stars Celebrate this book., 19 Oct 2012

This review is from: Druidry and Meditation (Paperback)
Good teachers are rare and should be celebrated. They are rare because it is not often that knowledge, understanding, the desire to explore, and the ability to convey all this with enthusiasm and authority are combined in one person. This is the book of a good teacher.

The subject matter - western meditation - is one that is rarely treated to more than a brief chapter or essay. This is a shame as it is an important aspect of Druidic and other pagan practice and one that is neglected simply because there are so few good teachers who understand it, who can guide others into the practice to the point they feel confident enough to explore for themselves.

The point about practice being something one must do for one's self is well made in the introduction to this work and the author tackles the perennial problem of whether one can learn this of thing from books head on with sound arguments and common sense.

And having done that, she proceeds to unravel the mysteries of meditation as practised by Druids in an open, straightforward and easy to understand fashion. This is not only because she understands the subject, but also because she is a good writer. The two don't always go together. Here they do, and the book is not only informative, it is a joy to read.

The subject is set out logically, moving from basics toward more complex aspects. She starts with the body and moves in progression through heart and mind to spirit and then explores how to work alone and in groups, following different methods. The ways in which meditation can be integrated into ritual are also examined. At each stage everything is clearly explained and exercises are offered to help the reader get going.

As someone who has been Druid for a very long time and who has used meditation a lot, I have nothing but praise for this book and only wish it had been available forty years ago. Be that as it may, it is available now, and I urge anyone who takes their Druidry in the least degree seriously to get this book. It is an essential addition to any Druid's bookshelf. Furthermore, it is sufficiently broad in its scope to be attractive to any practising pagan looking for a way into forms of meditation that sit easily with their beliefs and their work with the Land.

Celebrate this teacher. Celebrate this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must read, 18 Nov 2012
This review is from: Druidry and Meditation (Paperback)
Really accessible and down to earth. It's non-traditional approach is a fantastic toolbox of meditations, allowing for much more personalisation and adaptation than many I have read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful insight into meditation, 26 April 2014

This review is from: Druidry and Meditation (Paperback)
This is a really useful book for anybody interested in meditation and, whilst set in the context of druidry, you can apply these meditations in your daily life whatever your spiritual persuasion. And the author writes in a very straightforward and engaging style, encouraging you to try the meditations out for yourself.The only thing that stops me giving it 5 stars is the dis-service done to the author by the poor standard of proofreading. I can't recall the last time I read a book with so many spelling mistakes, even on the spine which has the title as Druidr and Meditation!
