The Druidry Handbook by John Michael Greer

The Druidry Handbook by John Michael Greer is a guidebook for “spiritual practice in the living Earth.” If you have ever been interested in Celtic culture or Druids, this is a book you’ll want to read!

Book Description
A living tradition of nature spirituality rooted in Celtic antiquity and revived to meet the challenges of contemporary life, Druidry offers people a path of harmony through reconnection with the green Earth.

The Druidry Handbook is the first hands-on manual of traditional British Druid practice that explores the Sun Path of seasonal celebration, the Moon Path of meditation, and the Earth Path of living in harmony with nature as tools for crafting an earth-honoring life here and now. From ritual and meditation to nature awareness and ecological action, John Michael Greer opens the door to a spirituality rooted in the living Earth.

Featuring a mix of philosophy, rituals, spiritual practice, and lifestyle issues, The Druidry Handbook is one-stop shopping for those seriously interested in practicing a traditional form of Druidry. It offers equal value to eclectics and solitary practitioners eager to incorporate more earth-spirituality into their own belief system; it also appeals to the merely curious.The Druidry Handbook

My Thoughts
The Druidry Handbook is a handbook for this tradition that is relevant for people in this era. It is written with such honesty and helpful guidance that it doesn’t put you to sleep or confuse you into just giving up on it. This book teaches you about the path and also how to use it in your modern life. It is really a perfect first book for someone who wants to explore or learn about Druidry.

As someone who is very interested and captivated by Celtic culture and Druidry, I found this book to be extremely informative, interesting, and readable. If you find yourself drawn to this Earth-based spirituality, this is definitely one of the books you’ll want to read and study. I highly recommend it.
