Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Emminent Celtic-American writer Tom Cowans latest book weaves together chapters about the interplay of soul and nature, and describes how this interplay creates mystical pathways between the human and nonhuman worlds. Throughout the ages, shamans and mystics have recognized that all created things share some level of consciousness, and that ordinary and non-ordinary realities interact on some level. This wonderful book explores those interactions and those interconnected pathways. It is a book that conveys the interdependence of our "material" life with the life of nature and with our inner life.

Each beautifully crafted chapter is a small window into the mysteries of nature and soul, a meditation on Spirit infusing our daily lives. By looking closely at some object or creature in the natural world, Cowan seems to open our eyes inward, to the truths that wait within. The book is both an intimate portrait of one shaman, the author, talking to nature and a masterful teaching on the universal qualities of our lives and the way we live in our world, spiritually and physically. Cowan draws on the teachings of medieval mystics, legends of fairies, Celtic songs, present-day poets and seekers, and Native American stories.

Throughout the ages, shamans and mystics have recognized that all created things share some level of consciousness, and that ordinary and nonordinary realities interact at some point. This book by a well-known Celtic American shaman explores those interactions and interconnected pathways, looking at the interdependence of our material life with our inner life and that of nature. Each chapter is a small window into the mysteries of nature and soul as they infuse daily life. Cowan draws on the teachings of medieval mystics, fairy legends, Celtic songs, present-day poets and seekers, Native American stories, and other traditions. From these strands he weaves a Celtic knot of spirit that is both beautiful and strong.
