Her mothers mother was a witch from the Isle of Man while her father was a cunning man whose family were very closely involved with Annie Besant and Rudolf Steiner.

The reader is taken through the Celtic chakras and the spiral path is explained. You will find diagrams and exercises as well as the myths explored. I need to have an experiential component to anything spiritual - I need concrete and real proof - which is provided within these pages. If you take time out and complete the journeys and meditations, you will experience things for yourself. The most beautiful for me has been the Northern Lights journey. I loved the explanation of the Rainbow Warriors and will be meditating on this.
The hardest thing for me is re-thinking the healing use of Reiki (chakras from base to crown). The spiral makes complete sense and this is something I will be experimenting with during self-healing. I'm not sure how I'm going to feel about my guided chakra meditation (on CD)!
A deeper look at the myths is fascinating in itself but if your focus is purely the chakras, you do need to have some knowledge of them and their purpose before reading this book.
This is a book I will be reading again and it has been useful for me in giving me pointers to researching for myself.
I would like to thank the publishers for providing an e-copy in exchange for an honest review.
Secondly on the content. The author uses repetition throughout the book, which I found very annoying (and a page filler?). Much of the information in the book is about Celtic history and used to state why the author thinks they used Chakras. However, I would have preferred if the author 'showed me' rather than 'told me', ie I've done loads of research etc and therefore it is. I would have liked - here's an example, it was found in this site on this object, and it looks as though it could be related to energy systems or chakras, and here's why. Sometimes the author seems to skip about with her information. She starts with a point in one chapter then she goes on to something else, only to come back to the original point in a later chapter.
I really would expect a book on Celtic Chakras to have given me more regarding evidence of the Celts using it, why they used it and how.
I suspect that this will be a book that others will work with and reference. It feels like a beginning, an opening up, and I'm sure people from many traditions will find much that they can learn from experimenting with the ideas contained in here.
