|The Celtic Book of Days:
A Guide to Celtic Spirituality & Wisdom is a
visually beautiful work as well as a poetic guide to
daily meditation. Illustrated with excerpts from The
Book of Kells, Pre-Raphaelite paintings and drawings,
woodcuts and prints of archaeological artifacts and
Celtic designs. It is divided into the four cycles of the
Celtic year, Samhain, Imbolc, Beltaine, and Lughnasad.
Every day of each month has an entry worthy of contemplation -- either an excerpt from Celtic mythology, a snippet of Celtic folklore, a Culdee Christian teaching, or a traditional triad extolling Celtic virtues. Traditional days for Well Dressings, pilgrimages, herb gathering, and seasonal festivals are given.
This book will be appreciated by lovers of Celtic art and lore, Pagan or Christian, and by anyone who collects spiritual teachings as a source of hope and comfort in daily life.
The Celtic Book of Days, Caitlin Matthews, Destiny Books, ISBN 0-89281-565-4, Clothbound - 128 pages, $24.95, Highly Recommended.
