Cosmiels Gift - Philip Carr-Gomm

In this excerpt from the novel 'The Prophecies', beautifully illustrated with images by Angela Lemaire, we learn why Hermann no longer fears death after his Ecstatic Journey with the angel Cosmiel 'beyond the Sea of Stars', beyond even the Seventh Heaven:

"Since taking this ecstatic journey with Cosmiel, I no longer fear death. Instead I know of the wonders that lie in store for me, once freed of the physical body. Death, I now know, is a process of shedding, of letting go of attachments, of longings, of defences, of garments of thought and feeling that cover the pure radiance of the soul."

Lessons in Magic: A Guide to Making Your Dreams Come True - Philip Carr-Gomm

A short focused book on how to bring magic into your life and into the world.

Deep down most of us believe in magic, because we know that sometimes just sometimes magic can come tumbling into our lives with a blinding flash, and suddenly there we are facing the person were destined to fall in love with, or being offered the job we never believed we would get, or we just find ourselves walking down that same familiar street, but this time its different this time weve fallen in love with life: this time everything looks different, and life feels wonderful and exciting again.

Most people believe that you cant make this kind of magic occur in your life. They say youre either lucky or youre not: it either happens to you or it doesnt. But what if we could make magic happen? What if we could do things that actually made these types of experiences occur more often in our lives? And what if there was a book that taught this kind of magic?

Contemplative Druidry - James Nichol

Contemplative Druidry is an evolving aspect of modern Druidry. Rather than talking in purely abstract terms, this book focuses first on the experience of people practicing contemplative Druidry now. Only then does it look at the bigger picture and draw conclusions for the developing spirituality of modern Druidry as a whole.

'Contemplative Druidry' takes the five months of March-July 2014, and offers a snapshot of how 15 practitioners of Druidry in England today understand and practice contemplative Druidry, and why they value it. Responding to a set of questions either in live interviews or through written responses, they describe both what contemplative Druidry means to them personally, and how they see it fitting in to the context of Druidry as a modern pagan spirituality. In this way 'Contemplative Druidry' acts as a contemplative inquiry, with many voices offering perspectives on contemplative Druidry, its place within Druidry as a whole, and its wider contribution to the development of modern spirituality, particularly within pagan traditions. The contributors, in alphabetical order of first names, are: David Popely, Elaine Knight, Eve Adams, JJ Middleway, Joanna Vander Hoeven, Julie Bond, Karen Webb, Katy Jordan, Mark Rosher, Nimue Brown, Penny Billington, Robert Kyle, Rosa Davis and Tom Brown.

In his introduction, the author describes the experience which led him, already a practising Druid, onto a more contemplative path. He talks of how he turned outwards to his own community, as well as inwards to his personal practice, and brought together a group dedicated to developing a practice of contemplative Druidry in Gloucestershire, England. The book is in many respects a fruit of this work, and 11 of the 15 contributors are involved in the group. The other four are independently engaged with contemplative and meditative practice in Druidry, and agreed to be part of the book. The main section of the book is divided into three parts. The first is about the people involved - their childhood spirituality, their histories of questing for a spiritual practice and home that made sense, and their commitment to Druidry as an identity and set of values. The second is about practice - formal sitting meditations, ways of contemplative engagement with nature, forms of group practice, contemplative arts, and having a contemplative stance in every day life. The third is about potential - what the practice of contemplative Druidry can do for the individual and its benefits to the community as a whole. The book ends with a set of author's reflections and conclusions, including suggestions about how contemplative practices can become more widely adopted within the Druid community. There are eight appendices, which include models of group programmes and solo practices for contemplative Druidry, and also two threads from the Contemplative Druidry Facebook group, one about contemplation and mysticism and the other on pilgrimage. The book has a foreword by Philip Carr-Gomm, Chosen Chief of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids, a significant contribution in its own right under the title: 'Deep Peace of the Quiet Earth: the Nature Mysticism of Druidry'. The foreword endorses the view that contemplative Druidry is an idea whose time has come.

'Contemplative Druidry' is an introduction in that it raises awareness of contemplative practice in Druidry, and potentially in pagan spirituality more widely. It provides documentary recognition of the approach. And it sets a note of contemplative inquiry and exploration, rather than offering a fixed set of teachings that people are invited to assimilate in a top-down kind of way. The book is therefore of interest both to people with a personal interest in contemplative Druidry, and to those with a more general interest in the life and development of modern Druidry, pagan paths more widely, and evolutionary spirituality as a whole.

A Druid Abroad - Sandra Parsons

The male in Druidry can be seen to equate to direct energies such as courage, focus, the hero, light, strength and power, and the use of directional tools. The female in Druidry is a pulse or rhythm, an apparently divided energy in itself, a series of apparent contradictions and paradoxes; a very different type of knowledge, light and power. She is intuition and patience, love and fury, and she is both the ebb and flow of energies, of life and death, renewal and decay. This book came about as a result of a visit to Ireland and a personal need to learn more about the Lady in Druidry, 'abroad' is meant in the wider sense of 'out and about' rather than being in another country. To analyse the Goddess is to restrict her, her ways are too complex for linear thought. We need to experience her rather than expect to understand her and substitute our restricted vision for a wider, holistic view of this incredible world into which we have been born. This is a book of discovery, intuition and enlightenment - shared rather than taught.
