There are many books on Druidry out there and many books on meditation as well. Given that meditation is such a core practice of Druidry, I'm surprised a book like this that puts them together hasn't come along sooner!

It does so very well however. The book explains meditation from a primarily Druid perspective and give the Druid many techniques from the tool box from which to choose. I think this book would be valuable to anyone on an earth based path however, it's use is not just limited to druids!

Nimue writes the book in her characteristic take you by the sleeve and speak casually style, so that the experience seems more like a one on one conversation. She goes over many topics of use to druids and pagans alike, finally from their own perspective. Inside you will find instructions for walking meditations and connecting with the earth, plants, and animals as well as the 4 classical elements. Also, and extremely valuable addition I thought was the section on how to connect with spirits, which is something that one hears individuals talk about all the time, but is often hard for new comer to get specifics on.

She also goes into the basics of pathworking, contemplation, and joint opening exercises as well as more standard Druidic concepts such as shapeshifting, drumming, chanting, connecting with places, and connecting with your ancestors. The book ends with group meditation work, which was less valuable to me personally being a life long solitary, but a valuable addition to the book none the less considering many druids practice in established groves. The book is relatively thin at 163 pages, but packs in a ton in what's there.

One of the best features of the book, in my opinion, is also the most intangible.

I have been looking for a book on druidry meditation for years. I had to settle for more of the zen style, it was good but not exactly what I wanted. This is great for pepole like me who are concidering the posibility of druidry well now it is easier to explore druid meditation and see how you like it.

This is a good book for beginner pagans on the Druid path. Brown's explanations are thorough and thought provoking. Some of the reading can be a little dry in large doses, so reading a bit and doing a few exercises was what worked the best for me. This book also focuses on visual meditations and pathworking a lot so definitely pick this up if you're interested in that.

Although not a Druid, I am interested in that way of connecting with life. This was so well written, easy to follow and empowering! It was an act of meditation even reading the book and the wonderful way Nimue Brown has of weaving words into images and emotions. If you are looking for a new way to meditate and connect with nature and yourself, this is the perfect book for you.

Druidry and Meditation by Nimue Brown is pretty fantastic! Whether or not you identify as a Druid, the instruction Nimue gives on meditation fits right in with any Earth/Nature centered spirituality.

I'm the kind of person who isn't really into solitary celebratory ritual at all, and I can easily use this info to develop Earthtide, Suntide, and Moontide cycles of meditations (group ritual is fun, I'm just really not into solitary role play lol).

Very highly recommended.

It is so hard to find Druidic and Western forms of Meditation in such a condensed and easily approachable format!
Nimue Brown has performed a great service to the Earth-Mysticism communities by sharing her insight into Awareness Living.
This was one of those books that I consumed quickly while nodding emphatically. I loved practicing the exercises recommended by the author as well as contemplating the philosophical and ethical commentary she provides.
I can't begin to recommend this book enough, though I have done a video recommendation on my youtube channel. Link below:

I meditate. Quite frequently, in fact. Its my way of finding my center when life tosses me an unexpected curve ball. Its my way of de-stressing after 45 minutes to an hour or more in traffic. Its my way of connecting to the world around me. Its my way of communing with the Gods and the Spirits of the Land. Meditation is a useful tool for me.

I also follow a personal Spiritual Path of Druidry. So Nimue's book was of interest to me. I was not sure what I was expecting. A self-help book? A how-to on Druidry? A how-to on Meditation? What I found was a very useful tome on how to approach meditative techniques from a perspective of Druidry.As Nimue points out several times in the book, Meditation techniques are different for each individual. For instance, I do my very best meditations when I am walking in the forest. Not sitting, but actively moving. For others, sitting in the classic lotus position works best. And so on. But taking a Nature-based approach requires some fine tuning of the mind, and the attitude prior to starting. Nimue presents a wonderful approach to the inner Sacred Grove, as well as a splendid chapter on facilitating group ritual - which requires a far different mindset and approach. She also adds some wonderful little exercises in the book that I think are wonderful starting points for those interested in meditation techniques, but unsure of how to start.
