FREE EPUB Ñ Shaman Pathways: The Celtic Chakras ì Tread the British native shaman s path, explore the goddess hidden in the ancient stories walk the Celtic chakra spiral labyrinth Though I enjoyed this book, and the information is definitely such that I will take with me and use to supplement my chakra work, I did not feel that this book was particularly well written It was very simple, almost too simple, and could have been explored muchdeeply Given that this is a concept that is not as well known as the Eastern philosophy of chakra power centers, I feel the author could have done a great service to the reader by beingthorough. I have to admit, I was skeptical about this book before I began reading it The title suggests it s yet another fluffy New Age volume that randomly and superficially connects the spiritual practices from one part of the world with those from another, with no real meat to it Nothing could be further from the truth.Celtic Chakras demonstrates that an amazing amount of information is hidden in the folklore and magical traditions of the West No, the Celts, their predecessors and neighbors did no I have to admit, I was skeptical about this book before I began reading it The title suggests it s yet another fluffy New Age volume that randomly and superficially connects the spiritual practices from one part of the world with those from another, with no real meat to it Nothing could be further from the truth.Celtic Chakras demonstrates that an amazing amount of information is hidden in the folklore and magical traditions of the West No, the Celts, their predecessors and neighbors did not use the term chakras but they were intimately familiar with the subtle energy system associated with the human body This book takes the reader on a journey through this energy system, teaching how to approach and understand it through both explanation and meditative activities It is obvious Ms Sentier practices her subject and is intimately familiar with the workings, and dangers, of the body s system of energy centers She gives clear directions and warnings where appropriate, leading even the novice through the guided visualizations and rituals with confidence I was fascinated to read about the spiral path through the body s energy centers chakras I have intuitively used a spiral path in my work as a Reiki master for a number of years I must have been hooking into some ancestral knowledge and am gratified to have this practice affirmed.This book brings together the threads of tradition and symbolism for three goddesses Elen of the Ways, Arianrhod and Ceridwen and relates them to the body s energy system in a way that makes sense If you are familiar with any of these goddesses, or interested in them, you will find a deeper layer of meaning in their mythology after reading Celtic Chakras Ms Sentier s journeys guided visualizations meditations to the realms of the goddesses are inspired and inspiring And her activities involving the Cauldrons of Poesy are deeply moving I do wish the section about Brighid had been longer andthorough, withdeep insights it seemed to end abruptly compared to the chapters about the other two goddesses However, I am grateful that Ms Sentier chose not to pad out that section with repetition and meaningless fluff simply to reach a particular page count I heartily recommend this book for anyone interested in delving into the shamanic and energy working aspects of the goddesses of the British Isles Every page of this book is packed with real, meaningful information It is easily approachable for the beginner but also gives the advanced practitioner something solid to chew on And there s nothing else like it out there I really enjoyed this book It was exactly what I needed a simple accessible introduction for how to get into the riddles of the Celtic stories.Having said that I also felt I wanted to know , much , so my appetite is well and truly whetted for a companion volume written for those who wish to delvedeeply.I was

explains how they are teaching tales, and unpicks a few with you leaving you wanting I ve always been fascinated with lore and myths knowing they hold a seed of truth but also knowing that the truth is very hard to find Shaman Pathways The Celtic Chakras opens up a doorway for us so that we can look further into the ancient stories and myths of Britain I found that it only took one thing to spark

and exercises as well as the myths explored I need to have an experiential component to anything spiritual I need concrete and real proof which is provided within these pages If you take time out and complete the journeys and meditations, you will experience things for yourself The most beautiful for me has been the Northern Lights journey I loved the explanation of the Rainbow Warriors and will be meditating on this.The hardest thing for me is re thinking the healing use of Reiki chakras from base to crown The spiral makes complete sense and this is something I will be experimenting with during self healing I m not sure how I m going to feel about my guided chakra meditation on CD A deeper look at the myths is fascinating in itself but if your focus is purely the chakras, you do need to have some knowledge of them and their purpose before reading this book.This is a book I will be reading again and it has been useful for me in giving me pointers to researching for myself.I would like to thank the publishers for providing an e copy in exchange for an honest review
