I felt a real heart sink as I read the first pages and the sentence " Even today, if one has an affinity toward the Celtic Way, one is indeed a Celt". Try explaining that to Plaid Cymru.
This book makes the unforgiveable mistake of confusing spirituality with religion ... page xii " we discovered that if we were to be effective in our work , we needed to use both pyschology and spirituality. We stood at a cross roads between pyschology and religion and could see that these two disciplines ...needed to be reintegrated'. .... ye gods...
The Religious Dogma within this Book with the Capitalisation of so many Words which the authors think of Special Significance is Intensely Irritating.
There is an essence of wisdom in the book, which basically is to let go of your ego (or even your Ego) to enable your true authentic self to be related to by the horse, but you can gain that unoriginal idea from the world of Horse Communication much more enjoyably by reading the books of the true pioneers in this field, such as Linda Kohonov than by wading through this poor attempt to re-write Celtic history through the looking glass of a re-discovered Christianity.
Make no mistake, this is not a history book about the Celtic love of the horse; Epona and Rhiannon and even the 1200BC Uffington White Horse don't merit a mention - because all Celts apparently spent their lives waiting for Christ and St Michael to come and Show them The Way (p78). Apparently the ‘Celts communicated with God in two key ways – through communion with Creation and through the Bible’ (p 79); presumably divine inspiration enabled the Celts to read the Bible during the 600 years of their existence BC, throughout the Dark Ages and also before the Bible was first printed in their own language in the 16th Century......
The authors complete lack of comprehension of Hwyl just compounds their poor treatment of Celtic history. If you make it towards the end of this book, you'll read that the "Omni-potent One can make (those) decisions on our behalf". Sadly he failed to help save my time and money in buying and wading though this book.
Easily written to leave you to make up your own mind about all the topics and it is nice to see that it is not written with a "superior" attitude as some books on these topics can be
