In every page you can sense that the author has learned these insights through experience, that she really understands and lives these principles from a place of deep heart-knowing...I highly recommend this book. It is proof of how seemingly different spiritualities can enrich each other, and for those of us who are drawn to both western and eastern paths, it's a real gem! --Maria Ede-Weaving, Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids
I liked how this book brought together both Buddhist and Druid practices to create a practice that is one with nature and enhances our spiritual practice. I learned a lot about both Druidry and Buddhism and how they can work seamlessly together to create a spiritual practice. --Rose Pettit, Insights into the Wonderful World of Books

Even before reading the book I had heard of the concept 'awen' without quite understanding what it means. It is mentioned repeatedly in this book but the explanation or definition only appears the final chapter. For me personally the first chapter would have worked better.
The author gives many clear and succinct perspectives on some the most taxing human issues (such as suffering and illusion). I will definitely return to those lucid descriptions. There is some repetition in the middle section and personally I feel that was not necessary. I would rather have read in more detail about Druidry! Then again, this book is the "further guide" - I might have been better off reading her previous book about Zen Druidry as I am new to both practices.
I hope that the author will take her work even one step further, into Inter Faith work. It would be interesting to see her compare Zen Buddhism and Druidry to other major schools of spiritual thought (I am trying not to use the word religion!) exploring how they take us to the same place: unity not separation,compassion not competition and so forth. I will recommend this book to others and I would welcome an even further-ranging book!
My only complaint is the title - not because it is wrong, but because I fear that there are people who would gain tremendously from reading this book who, not seeing themselves as Druid or Zen, might mistakenly dismiss it as 'not their sort of thing' and thereby miss out on so much packed into so delightful a book.
