Overview

The Mysteries of Druidry reveals this mystical romanticism as it was in ancient times, and shows various ways to bring it to life today, in both private and social realms. Thoroughly researched, provocative, and informative, the book carries the reader back to the world of the Druids, not just through Celtic mythology and traditional storytelling, but through the author's own experiences of living and traveling in Ireland and visiting its sacred sites.

The Mysteries of Druidry combines a high-quality "training manual" for modern spiritual Celts and Druids with an original and thought-provoking philosophical account of the spiritual meaning of Druidry. It includes:

  • A professionally researched survey of Druidic history, tradition, and customs.
  • Detailed descriptions of the mysteries of Celtic spirituality, including the Sacred Truth, the Great Marriage, the Hero's Journey, and the Otherworld.
  • Practical guidance for meditation and ceremony, for individuals and for groups.
  • The Celtic story of the creation of the world, presented together with a plan for re-enacting the story in ritual.
  • The remarkable human side of Druidic spirituality.

Brendan Cathbad Myers has studied and practiced Irish Druidry for more than 12 years. He holds a Ph.D. in philosophy, and his articles on Celtic spirituality have been published in numerous journals and magazines in four countries. Originally from Ontario, Canada, he now lives in the west of Ireland. This is his second book.

Isaac Bonewits is one of the America's most well-known Druidic leaders and teachers. He is the founder of the ADF (�r nDra�ocht F�in), the largest Druid organization in the United States. Bonewits is also the author of several books, including Real Magic, The Pagan Man, and Witchcraft: A Concise Guide.
