This new book from Vivianne Crowley is a full colour illustrated wealth of knowledge about our Celtic wisdom and heritage. The reader is taken through the stages of the Celtic year and shown ways of reconnecting with Celtic culture today.
Vivianne Crowley’s unrivalled expertise in Celtic and Pagan history makes this an extremely comprehensive companion and a rewarding read.
The introduction describes the demise of the Celtic peoples and the recent reawakening of interest and awareness of the Celtic language, heritage and spirituality.
The main body of the book is divided into eight chapters describing the eight major seasonal festivals of the Celtic calender. Crowley describes the myths, gods, rituals, songs and traditions of the Celts. As the reader progresses it becomes clear that Celtic Wisdom is far from obselete in our contemporary calender and landscape – much Celtic practice such as fires on November 5th and May Day holidays are still going strong.
With this fascinating book however, the reader can find new depth and meaning throughout the cycle of the year. Herbal wisdom for the kitchen and garden, the meaning of special landmarks such as standing stones and sacred trees are all described along with simple but special rituals and ideas for celebrations to help the reader bring true Celtic Wisdom into their lives.Contraportada:
The Celtic tradition, once widespread across europe, is now experiencing a cultural revival and a rich pattern of myths and legends, of Gods and Goddesses, custom and superstition, folk tradition and spirituality is slowly re-emerging.
In' Celtic Wisdom,' Vivianne Crowley, herself a priestess in the Wiccan tradition, explores the origins of eight great festivals of the Celtic tradition:Samhain, Midwinter, Imbolic, Spring Equinox, Beltane, Midsummer, Lughnasadh and the Fall Equinox. Explaining the links with Christian, Jewish and other festivals, she describes simple ceremonies which can be performed alone or with family and friends.
This beautifully illustrated book provides an insight into Celtic traditions and festivals, and, by celebrating the sacred, helps us understand a universe far greater than ourselves.
