It represents the metaphysic principles of the Druid path that I have not found anywhere else. It defines and explains the essence of what a Druid should be in the here and now based off of historical evidence of the Celtic culture and the Druids. It briefly explains the past of the Celtic culture without becoming a boring thesis.

Many different reports tell how Celtic druids acted as priests at rituals and judges in religious matters. They also regulated and performed sacrifices to the gods. They had the ability to curse enemies and were therefore feared. The ancient druids were also responsible for passing on the oral religious tradition to different generations and were regarded as 'teachers of wisdom'.

Celtic religion, religious beliefs and practices of the ancient Celts

Celtic religion, religious beliefs and practices of the ancient Celts. The Celts, an ancient Indo-European people, reached the apogee of their influence and territorial expansion during the 4th century bc, extending across the length of Europe from Britain to Asia Minor. Two main types of sources provide information on Celtic religion: the sculptural monuments associated with the Celts of continental Europe and of Roman Britain, and the insular Celtic literatures that have survived in writing from medieval times. Both pose problems of interpretation.

I have been a Druid for twenty-three years and I have recommended this book to my adult children and others who are interested in the Druid path. It is a thought provoking read - but it is not a book for reading in one sitting. I found myself going back, re-reading, and contemplating the intent of what was written. I enjoyed it a lot, and recommend it highly. It should be on every Druids book shelf. It represents the metaphysic principles of the Druid path that I have not found anywhere else. It defines and explains the essence of what a Druid should be in the here and now based off of historical evidence of the Celtic culture and the Druids. It briefly explains the past of the Celtic culture without becoming a boring thesis. This naturally sets up why Druids were Druids and how they interacted with the tribe.

It suggests doctrinal and theological principles that Druids likely taught in relation and perception to the Celtic way of life and perspective. Many of which we would do well to emulate and thus the title - it is very appropriately title for the contents of this book.

It does not have any rituals, but these are available from several other sources. It simply reflects what a Druid should be, steeped in Celtic lore of one living in our harried world of today. Good read - get it.

Graeme K Talboys has produced a thoroughly readable text on Druidry suitable for the neophyte yet in depth enough for the scholar. His emphasis on personal responsibility was especially effective and the points are well made. I only wish he'd put out another Druid book but he's been rather busy with other works.

The last year some fine books have come out on the druid way. I have read quite a few books on celtic religion and druidism. Mr. Talboys new book covers it all from the ancient to the modern "druid way". His insights are great and his understanding of the ancient celtic worldview super. The book my be a big step for someone new to the druid path. For people who are looking for ancient and modern wisdom of the druid path..this is it. I really can't say enough good things about this book! Buy, read, and learn from a great druid! You will have a better understanding of the druid path after the read.

Fantastic book on Druidism history and practices as thoroughly as it can be known. As a pagan, it was fascinating to discover how closely related their ancestral beliefs were to Native Americans. If you are a spiritual seeker who relates well to nature, or are someone interested in Celtic history, this book will not disappoint.

There is very little hard evidence to back up the author's speculations on the ancient Druids, and his vision of modern Druidic practice appears to consist of little more than random philosophical meanderings that ultimately say very little. There is little to nothing on what modern Druids actually believe or how they actually practice. There are much better books on the market, and they generally cost less than this one. Save yourself the headache.
Uaha
Seemingly effortless in it's portrayal of a complex subject, I agree with the other reviewers who consider this the best book on Druidry available. I only wish I had found it 15 years ago! Easy to understand, accurate, encompassing a wide variety of topics, practical, well organized & engrossing. Kudos to Graeme Talboys!

Despite the high praise given this book by many reviewers, I found it unreadably dry and dull. The author speculates at length on the ideas of the ancient Druids with very little hard evidence to back it up and provides few if any suggestions for those who might want to embrace Druidry as a spiritual practice. No book is helpful for everyone; pay your money and take your chances, and if it doesn't work for you, sell it used.
This should be required reading for all Druids, from aspirant to sage. It philosophically drills down to the core of essential ideas and the very nature of druidic spirituality. It gets below the surface idea of a druid and outlines Celtic thought and how it applies today. Best book on Druidry I've read so far.
