Product Description


In the spirit of modern Celtic Christianity, one of the purposes of this book is to discover parallels between traditional scripture and the contemplation of nature, and to harmonise the two. Often - perhaps as a hangover from the witchcraft hysteria of previous centuries - Christians have a superstitious fear of the the natural world. This author believes that the creatures and plants around us have a voice to help us in our search for the sealskin, our spiritual freedom. A special feature is perforated full-colour cards bound into the back of the book. These can be detached and used as an aid to meditation. For example, a card chosen at random directs the reader to a specific contemplation.
