After the death of her fianc-, Lyn Webster Wilde sought refuge in alcohol, meaningless affairs and her high-powered job as a film-maker. But a chance encounter changed her life and, after fulfilling a series of tests, she was cautiously welcomed into a secret fraternity. She discovered that her new companions were the guardians of an ancient tradition of knowledge every bit as potent and life-transforming as that of the Native Americans or Siberian Shamans. It is a tradition that reaches back through the wisdom of the Celts to the megalith-builders of the Neolithic age and which continues to this day in the British isles. This is Lyn's extraordinary true account of her experiences and adventures on her way to unlocking life-altering magical secrets and ultimately 'becoming the enchanter'.

Lyn captures the essence of a truly mystical and yet transcendent journey possible for this who understand more than this reality. As good a guide book as one visiting a country.

I was recommended this book by my spiritual mentor, because my Patron Goddess is the Welsh Moon Goddess Arianrhod. This book will take you on a journey to the stars, where Arianrhod reigns supreme. A little tricky at times, but worth the journey, a great book.

My mother is a Scot and a seer so Celtic mystery is familiar territory to me. For some reason reading this book really raised my ire. I felt conned. It did not ring true nor did the author seem rational or balanced. Perhaps I missed something profound but I would describe her interpretations of events as delusional. The narrative is rather obtuse, based mostly on bizarre dreams, and erratic. I don't recommend this one.

The author has a talent for describing something that is nearly impossible to describe in words - the mysteries. They must be experienced firsthand, and even trying to describe them in mundane language can cause one to lose the essence of the experience.
The author continues on with her sacred work despite the fact that some of the people she works with decide to move on - she doesn't take it personally and realizes that she has no control over the will of others.
I wasn't at all offended by the author's reference to Pagans, she described some of the people she worked with as Pagan. Pagans are just like anyone else of any other faith - some are more committed and aware than others, and some have issues that get in the way.
A seeker who has studied and has reached a point of saying, "Is that all there is to this path?" might find this book encouraging and inspiring. It's full of valuable nuggets of wisdom from the author's mentor, and it isn't another one of those "how to" books. She reminds us that the knowing isn't in the books, it's in the doing.

While at the end of the day I recommend this book to those interested in Celtic mysticism, I found this book to be frustrating and vexing at times. I alternated while reading between enjoyment and wondering if the author was deluded or deranged in some way. It could simply be an overexuberant writing style where metaphors are typed onto the paper as if they are real-- for example, did the author really see seaweed turn into gemstones, or is it just a way of describing the look of the seaweed? If literal, then she has more visions, out of body experiences, trances, etc. than might be good for you.

However, I did find things which resonated as true-- especially when compared with works of others purporting to practice the ancient Celtic mysteries (such as the late Robert Cochrane). While the philosophy and rituals are not necessarily the same, I found something that resonated as similar with these other practitioners, which leads me to believe this book might contain things that are worth knowing.

This book hit home in a way that very few books have. There's nothing "fluffy bunny" or New Agey about it--it's an intensely realistic (sometimes excruciatingly so!) portrayal of a modern person being drawn into the mysteries, somewhat like Curott's "Book of Shadows," but wilder: rather than showcasing, say, the ways in which this process has improved her day-to-day life (a la Curott's stories of workplace foes she used magic to protect herself from, etc.), it simply describes how harrowing and fascinating it is to go through this process. Unlike many Pagan/Wiccan/etc. books, it's not ABOUT improving her everyday life: it's about coming into contact with something bigger than oneself, and figuring out one's own small role within that.

Maybe the neopagans won't like it (the author makes an offhand comment about
a neopagan gathering in a bar) but I thought this was one of the most solid,
realistic books dealing with magic and finding a way back to ancient wisdom
I've read in a while. The characters were ordinary types, and I found it to
be accessible in a way that a lot of books with heavy mystical content
aren't. It's a fast-paced read and the author's a great writer--pretty
perceptive in her descriptions of the other characters, and often herself. I
I thought it was a fortifying read overall, and a fair portrait of the
excitement and problems that go along with the spiritual path. The ending's
significant, but I won't say more...
This was an interesting book in that it shows the journey of one woman through the British Mysteries as she is shown and experiences them. Lavishly detailed, this journey is shamanic, though I don't think she ever uses the word intentionally. She seems a little arrogant to neo-pagans, basing it on one experience of a crowd in a bar, but her abstract insights are worth pondering, especially in regards to becoming a woman warrior in the spiritual sense. I especially liked how she detailed the process of really getting into the "guts" of a myth and working with it, beyond it's value as story.
