Format: Paperback
This is a truly lovely book with an underlying sense of kindness and gentleness. We all know that trees are living entities, but we forget the gifts they offer us. And Sharlyn offers us a truly healing gift in her gentle, straightforward way of introducing us to these amazing beings that share their healing energies with us, not just their material gifts.

For those interested in historical and technical aspects of the spiritual journeys through the Celtic tree calendar, Sharlyn does a beautiful job of clearly and simply showing the relationship between the Celtic tree calendar, the ogham, totems, the runes, and Astrology. Her guided journeys take you to beautiful places and to beautiful beings, including your own ancestors, that bless, comfort and heal you.

At the end of the chapter on "Willow" Sharlyn writes, "I hope the Willow, in all her grace and power, will never be just another tree to you ever again!". Well I can truly say, no tree will ever be just another tree to me ever again.

In her introduction Sharlyn states, "If we can survive the next ten or fifteen years without blowing ourselves up an harming our planet beyond repair, our beliefs, behaviors, feelings, and actions will evolve and this may help to ensure our peace and harmony." This book is a timely gift that can help us evolve in this direction.

This book is full of love, acceptance, gentle direction, instruction, and hope. Thank you Sharlyn.

I love this book! There is a Celtic tree for each calendar month and Sharlyn shares not only the healing properties of each tree but shares how
to really connect with these living beings. In a practical sense, she shows us many wise ways to connect to this wisdom. The Celtic rune system is mentioned, the healing properties of each tree and thoughts of how to journey with these powerful allies through art and dreamtime are inspiring and I can see that I shall be using and rereading this gem of a book for many years. Not only that, but the illustrations are beautiful, the entire experience is lovely. I am so excited to have this on my bookshelf and to share with my friends.

Format: Paperback
I was given this book as a present and though it's okay, I do question some of the information. I'd like to know what sources were used, especially on any kind of Celtic history.

The author claims "scrying is unique to Celts" - I'd like to see that source as to my knowledge, there is no proof this is true that I'm aware of. Sad fact is, there is actually very little real Celtic history around simply because the Celts did not record much of their history. We only have a few bits and pieces and much of that is still being studied to be better understood. (See Jan Fries books on Celt history. At least he acknowledges the obvious that we have so little from this time period, therefore we can only guess at what actually did happen at the time.) Because we do have so little from the Celts themselves, to make the claim "scrying is unique to Celts" is questionable.

I realize this is suppose to be about trees (though some were not trees), but if we are going to mention any kind of history, it might be wise to cite and use better sources when mentioning anything as specific as the above (about scrying). Better, look at more credible sources other than New Age versions of handed down history (such as Robert Graves whose work has now been questioned).

Her list of sources such as Star Hawk, Lynn Andrews, and worse - Ralph Blum, are overused sources. I would have looked towards real research and science as well as historians that are more qualified.

(Like many have said before, it took people like Blum to get out those such as Steven Flowers aka "Edred Thorsson" who actually know more about their subjects (in this case runes). See Runecastor's Handbook and other books by Flowers. Dr. Flowers on the subject of runes. Flowers also runs a workshop on runes - [...

Sharlyn's book is beautiful--not only the drawings of the trees, but also the healing, generous sharing of the historical and her personal truths. I love the range of information, from meditations with the spirits of trees to how often to prune them. I start my day with the meditation for the tree appropriate for that month. As a result, each day, I feel a lovely, peaceful grounding, and a strong sense of oneness with the earth. I have purchased this book for friends, who, like me, love trees and gardening and pressing their toes in the earth. They love the book! I want to thank the author for this lovely gift. I'm eagerly awaiting her next publication.

I find this book to be thoroughly enjoyable. I bought it on a friend's recommendation and then had the good fortune to actually meet the author. It was a pleasant surprise to find I had already met her years ago at a workshop when she was just starting on this project. I am so happy Sharlyn finally finished her book.

It is easy to read, is clearly laid out and very user friendly. I have several books an trees, but this one really speaks to my heart. I like that while it gives some historical background, it is not a history book, but is a book about building relationships and living cohesively with our tree and plant allies. I find the guided meditations to be very thought provoking and the few I have done have given me some very interesting journeys to contemplate and journal about. It has been an uplifting book to read.
