Product description


Simon s beautifully written tale is breathtakingly evocative of rural Irish life the sounds, smells, colors, pace, and bucolic atmosphere are lovingly summoned to vibrant life on the page. Yet this is no ordinary tale of pastoral living. It is Simon s shamanic encounters with Herne and other denizens of liminal realms, and the deceptive ease with which he walks between the worlds that makes this a remarkable account of a life-changing experience, one that forces us to question our own relationships with other beings and the very nature of reality. --Grahame Gardner, President of the British Society of Dowsers"

Wheeler shares the peeling away of layers of separation that have become part and parcel of humans entrapped in this technological world, and the connecting with the enspirited world around him. He  connects with the creatures for whom he is guardian in a process of listening and working with them. Whether one identifies the book as spiritual or not, it is beautifully and colorfully written. The book is a good read from both regards: the story of his personal connection with the enspirited world; or as a wonderfully descriptive writing of rural Ireland.   "Journal of Uncommon Thought"

Simon's story is rather like a fable with its accounts of animals and plants, mythical creatures and forces of nature - the moral lesson, if that's the appropriate phrase, being, in Simon's words, 'listen to what the universe is telling us'. He comes to accept feelings of being connected to place, animals and 'something other'. .. ' he concludes on an optimistic note endorsing the concept of holism, once a natural attribute of our ancestors in the ancient world, and today re-emerging in the embrace of a new spirituality.

Simon Wheeler's book is an inspiration. It has staggering knowledge and vision. I feel as if every cell in my body has been profoundly affected. This magnificent book is full of mystery. I strongly urge everyone to read it. ~ Brian Blessed, actor, director, mountaineer, explorer, adventurer and author.
