Celtic Wisdom and Contemporary Living by Phyllida Anam-Aire

Much more than simply an account of Celtic holy places and mythology, this book invites the reader into the deeper psychology of the Celtic world. A desire for wisdom is shown to drive this ancient culture and connect it to a deep appreciation of nature, a lifelong immersion in storytelling, the soulful expression of love and the belief that human feeling is the way to enlightenment.Instructing modern readers about how to seek similar experiences, the discussion turns to specific elements of Celtic belief, including the sacred Celtic calendar, goddess archetypes, the cauldron of wisdom and the cloak of death that sings us to life. This book is looking at the deeper psychology of what it means to be Celtic, to be conscious of this great way of being in the world. It is not just another textbook about Celtic holy places or Celtic mythology. It is a living organism of human experience, an invitation to the holy places within. This book guides the reader to wonder at the inner landscape of love, courage, grief and ecstasy. It encourages us to risk living a soulful involvement with all creation.
