'Celtic Tree Magic empowers the reader to
work with the Ogham on numerous levels, practicality and spirituality
interweaving to create an approach of depth and beauty. Throughout, Danu's
heartfelt connection to the wisdom of trees - born of many years of study and
interaction - shines through, guiding the reader on a path deep into the
forest. With many useful practical exercises that serve to open the reader, the
book seeks to moves us from a purely intellectual understanding to a living
relationship with the trees of the Ogham.
This lovely work offers a truly
experiential journey. With its understanding of the Ogham as a spiritual map
that guides us on a path around the World Tree, it offers the reader a richer
understanding of nature and self.' Philip Carr-Gomm, author of 'Druid
Mysteries' and 'Sacred Places'; Chosen Chief of the Order of Bards Ovates and
'Practical, magical and beautifully
articulated, this enchanting book offers a trusted and guiding hand through the
Celtic forests of wisdom and magic. In these pages you will find lore,
scholarship and powerful exercises that will encourage a deeper relationship
with the Ogham. Let Danu take you by the hand and help you see the wood for the
trees.'Kristoffer Hughes, author of 'The Book of
Danu Forest has made masterful use of the
original sources to provide a primer of the Ogham script for those who wish to
employ it for its magical and divinatory properties today. I heartily commend this book. Nicholas R Mann Author of Druid Magic, Isle

"A sound, practical introduction to a complex and wide-ranging subject. Danu Forest's guidance chimes closely with my own experience of working with spirits over many years. Integrating folk traditions, literary sources and archaeology with contemporary practice, Danu combines visually strong and spiritually apposite ideas with sensitive advice concerning our relations with spirit, as well as working with sacred sites. As Danu says, how we perceive the spirits we connect with as Druids does make a difference. Having been plugging the notion of Druidry as the native 'shamanic' tradition of Britain and Europe since 1974, it's good to see that it's increasingly catching on, not only amongst fellow Druids, but also amongst archaeologists. I believe we are heading in a direction that links us very firmly with the spirit of ancient Druidry. This is what I call rekindling the sacred fire of Druidry, and I believe Danu Forest's 'The Druid Shaman' will play a part in this rekindling." --Philip Shallcrass - 'Greywolf' Chief of the British Druid Order.
