5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just what i've been looking for 21 août 2011
Par SpookyDan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I've been looking for a path for a long time now that suits my own beliefs and preferences when it comes to spiritual paths. To no avail. Then, I found this. The path i had been looking for. I just didnt know its name.

The book gives a great grounding to Druidic practice. It makes you actually get up from the chair you read in and participate in your own learning process. Which, in my opinion, is a much better way of learning a spiritual path. So, dont expect an easy ride. This book requires you to develop a certain amount of discipline to acctually DO. Something explained in the book as part of being a Druid. I know the line "dont expect an easy ride" is generally not the sort of words you expect to hear in a positive review, But i think that the fact you actually have to give something. Is a thing that is missing from a fair few other books on spiritual paths. I would have prefered that some of the other books were not "easy rides".

All in all if your looking to learn Druidry this is the book for you. But as i said, make sure you are willing to get out into the wide world and really immerse yourself in the practices of a Druid, Bard, and Ovate. (something explained in more detail in the book)

One more thing; this book is suitable for all walks of life. You dont have to live in the countryside to practice.

Penny Billington has written a warm, accessible and wise book, based on her own extensive experience in Druidry and ritual magic. The emphasis here is on practical ways of being a Druid by doing what Druids do, and whenever necessary and appropriate, adapting the exercises she gives to one's own circumstances and capacities. Of course, no book can replace doing the work at hand, whether it's learning basic chords and fingerings as a guitarist, mastering the forms and patterns of a foreign language, or the art and science of breadmaking and brewing.

But the author offers a great deal. As an active and longtime member of OBOD (the Order of Bards Ovates and Druids), and a student of the teaching of Dion Fortune (founder of Society for Inner Light, and one of the major figures in the authentic occult and magical tradition issuing from the U.K.), Billington draws on these streams, while shaping a coherent and profound entrance to Druidry. As she notes, you can walk the solitary path, or join a Druid organization. But making use of texts like this one can be a useful middle way. The book, as the author notes, is consciously in step with contemporary practice, annotated so that readers can check and verify sources for themselves, and brim-full of techniques and practices in keeping with the teachings of several modern Druid organizations. The emphasis is on finding one's own Druidry, not conforming to some arbitrary standard of ritual or someone else's "real" Druid ideal.

Much has been made about how the specific practices and beliefs of ancient Druids are forever lost to us since they left no written records, and the references to Druids in the works of classical Greek and Roman authors are mostly based on secondhand accounts and sometimes markedly biased. But what such writers and speakers often forget is the surviving body of legend, myth, teaching and wisdom in Celtic literature. In each chapter, Billington includes an adaptation of a story from the Mabinogion, the Welsh collection of myth, legend and teaching which has wonderful relevance and serves as a storehouse of much Druid teaching. Sustained meditation on these stories will reveal much of use and value to the aspirant after a Druidry that is authentic simply because it is grounded in knowledge and practice.

Billington also develops the idea of the three rays of knowledge, nature and devotion into a coherent and balanced teaching. I especially liked how, throughout the text, she raises at least as many questions as possible answers, and how in each chapter she points us toward finding our own answers, as a good teacher should. Finally, Billington's book is both orderly and spiraling, acknowledging that we return to the foundations, revisit the basics, at many different times in our journey, often to see them as new and fresh because it is we who have moved and changed and grown. Highly recommended.

Love it, one best out there.

If you ever wanted know what the Order of Bard, Ovates and Druids course where like and didn't or couldn't spend the money. Penny did write it so you got a taste of it.(According to the Oct 21st O.B.O.D podcast) This great way to find out and now I know that courses aren't for me.

It's lay out as a course, pack with with great stuff. However Penny use did the Mabinogion for the base of the course and I just couldn't make a connection to it. (But that was me) Plus, there was hardly any mention of the Celtic gods either. For some of us, Druidry is our religious practice. Even though I don't use the Celtic gods for my devotion, I still like read about them and somebody else could use the info too.

I'll admit, I didn't agree with everything Penny wrote about or recommend, some of it I just found a little too far fetched. But I'm with the Reformed Druids of North America [...] and is a big fan of the "Less is More" mantra.

But still - any Druid would find this one very helpful book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 One more Druid book 17 février 2013
Par G. M. Walton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
In the past ten years or so many books on Druidry or druid spirituality have been published. This is not the best but far from the worst of the lot I have read. The scholarship is basically sound and in tune with the latest in archeology and analysis of what is known about the ancient Celtic peoples. Each "druid" book offers a slighty different 'take' on the modern practice, mostly offshoots of either the OBOD or ADF version. One can take their choice, combine aspects of both or forge off in new directions. This book can assist no matter which course one selects.

I was drawn to the cover of this book. The tree was so beautiful and I connected to it in a real sense. Though the writing is informative and clear...I was not so drawn to the lives of druids of the past...where certain sacrifices went on. I was not aware of this and it tainted all the good I thought they were. Modern day druids are perhaps a better people all in all. I believe in the connection of trees, the ground and the universe as I have experienced some of this very real connection in nature myself. It does exist without any magic spells. When one is opened....one senses quite easily all that is around them. Nature comes alive....life jumps out at you....and soon the spell that civilization has cast on you melts away in the breeze....life opens itself up to you...and your soul sings out in joy as you connect with the you who was meant to be...
