In The Mist-Filled Path, Frank MacEowen shows how embracing the indigenous wisdom of Scotland and Ireland can lead to healing and transcendence. Using his own travels and teachings along with Celtic stories and myths, he explores ancient traditions, ecopsychology, the ancient mother, altars and hearths, Oran Mor (the Great Song), contemplation, and mysticism. The book tells how to draw on ancestral roots to find a personal spirituality that also works for the greater good.
For all those who have felt the tug of memory or a connection to some time and place that came before, this book explores the depths of one’s connections to ancestors, to the land, to the mysteries of life. Continuing with themes from his first book, The Mist-Filled Path, the author brings readers along as he journeys to Ireland for a shamanic conference and shares his experiences and how they tie into the meanings of Celtic traditions. Readers recognize connections to other spiritual traditions and how the Celtic shamanic teachings overlap with those of other indigenous peoples. They also discover ways to reconnect with their own heritage — to cull the good teachings and incorporate them into their personal spiritual practices. Offering evocative writing, a fresh look at ancient ideas, practical exercises, and guided meditations, The Spiral of Memory and Belonging makes a perfect entry point for readers seeking shamanic wisdom and guidance.

Despite modern Paganism being one of the fastest growing new religious movements in Britain and the USA, there is no up-to-date straightforward and informed introduction to modern Paganism from a Christian perspective. The Shaken Path addresses that gap.
Come voyage through lost roots of the multi-dimensional artistry of collage. This seemingly simple method leads you on an adventure of self discovery, developing your innate abilities for shapes-shifting using paper, scissors and glue. Author and artist Donna Thompson shares her wisdom and stories as she leads you on a journey through time. From caves of old to collaging in your own home, this colorful adventure is an in-depth exploration of humanity’s ancient connections to making art. This triple layered approach is actually three books in one. It begins by guiding you through the mystical Doorway of Color, where you learn the Celtic ways of sensing, gathering and envisioning with images. Next comes the Doorway of Ceremonies, where you unearth indigenous ways of communing with collage. And finally, the Doorway of Dreams, leading to the most ancient ways of remembering who you truly are. Learning to quest with collage is all about playing with colors, signs and synchronicity. It is also a metaphor for the ongoing journey of each human life. You are invited to come along in search of multi-hued elements to weave into an ever unfolding landscape of your own design. Collage Quest is a guide for tracing these deep roots and translating them into modern day materials and language. It is a unique and powerful 21st century tool of co-creation. www.HealingInteriors.com

Reframing Pilgrimage argues that sacred travel is just one of the twenty-first century's many forms of cultural mobility. The contributors consider the meanings of pilgrimage in Christian, Mormon, Hindu, Islamic and Sufi traditions, as well as in secular contexts, and they create a new theory of pilgrimage as a form of voluntary displacement. This voluntary displacement helps to constitute cultural meaning in a world constantly 'en route'. Pilgrimage, which works both on global economic and individual levels, is recognised as a highly creative and politically charged force intimately bound up in economic and cultural systems
Hailed by her peers as “promising” (David Coe),“talented” (Kristin Britain), and “masterful” (Carol Berg), Diana Pharaoh Francis crafted a unique magical world and one of fantasy’s most intriguing heroines in Path of Fate and Path of Honor. Now Reisil must fulfill her destiny as the fates of two worlds rest in her hands.... Chaos reigns in the realm of Kodu Riik. Plague continues to ravage its populace. Armies of the power-hungry Aare are on the march, slaughtering everything in their path to place a madman on the throne. And the rift between the kingdom and the land of Cemanahuatl yawns ever wider, threatening to consume both beneath waves of uncontrollable magic and destroy every living soul within them. Only Reisil possesses enough power to breach the spellbound city of Mysane Kosk and seal the fracture. Accompanied by her goshawk, Saljane, and her lover, Yohuac, Reisil must journey across a land besieged by war and fight for a domain torn asunder by sorceries beyond imagining....
Whether you'd like to walk the warm sands of a Hawaiian beach, camp at a nearby lake, take a day excursion while on a business trip, or just read of such travels, Marlee LeDai can help you find adventure wherever you are.
The Celtic Way of Seeing posits a direct link between the eye and the heart, a link that connects seekers to forces, energies, and knowledge that exist beyond the corporeal world. This book explores this concept through retelling the traditional story “The Settling of the Manor of Tara,” which describes the spiritual divisions of Ireland and the four directions — north, south, east, and west. The orientations to the four directions and the center become the focal point of a series of simple meditations that guide readers to “see” the directions, making the Irish Spirit Wheel come alive in their daily lives.
