As a lover of all things water, I enjoyed this book a lot. It gave me quite a few ideas with regard to how to incorporate the waters into my spirituality. Kynes is a wonderful author and has written quite a few very helpful spiritual guides. I have an unread extra copy I am willing to sell or trade.

I really, really enjoyed this book. I loved the chapter on seashells and sea animals and what they represent. I was hoping it would have more information on mythical sea creatures like mermaids and selkies, however overall this is one of my favorite New Age books I own.

This one of the greatest books I owned I fully reccomend this book. If you working with water magic this is the perfect book for you. Don't worry about living close to the ocean.Heck I live in a dessert,and still practice sea magic it works by the way. You can live as far from the sea and still to magical spirt of the ocean. This book will teach you ways to magical world of the sea. You will learn about deties of the sea such as Posidan.You will learn sea meditions,spells,and rituals. In this book it also teach on sea animal sprits,and the magic of seashells. A perfect book for sealovers who are intersted in connecting with the sprit of the sea.
