Celtic Inspirations - Essential Meditations and Texts
|Author:||Lyn Webster Wilde|
The Celts were not only great warriors but also a creative, peaceful and mystical people. Today we especially appreciate their imaginative myth-making, their brilliant design and their profound sense of wonder and magic: three elements that combine in this beautiful and inpsiring book.
This book captures the spirit of the druids and bards in a rich collection of poetic texts, spiritual insights, and meditative exercises that concentrate on the universal truths of Celtic wisdom--as meaningful and helpful today as they were in the Dark Ages. Discover how to heal using plants, how to cast spells, and how to travel safely in the Otherworld. Learn the secrets of King Arthur's knights and the truth about the Holy Grail. By absorbing Celtic wisdom at the deepest level of our minds, we furnish our imaginations with beautiful and profound insights.
Lyn Webster Wilde is of Scottish origin, though she has lived in England for most of her life -- currently in the foothills of the Black Mountains near the Welsh border where the old gods and goddesses still hide. She has been a documentary film maker and a TV and radio producer, and now concentrates on writing, running courses and workshops, and giving lectures on myth and sacred drama. Her book, Becoming the Enchanter, tells of her life changing encounter with Britain's hidden spiritual tradition. She has also written a book on the origins of the myth of the Amazon women warriors.
