It is a hard task to meld Druidism and Buddhism; the Celts believed in animal sacrifice as a sacred act (and shared the meat with their tribe afterwards) to re-create the world by sending energy back to it. Buddhists are very often vegetarians. Buddhists believe in “Ahimsa” or the principle of doing no harm to others. Druids, historically, lent their battle magic to squabbling rulers and sometimes fought duels with swords to claim Druidic titles such as “Chief Poet”. The book advises against the use of intoxicating drinks and yet these were very much a part of ancient Druidism, used to sanctify oaths, boasts and toasts. Any promise made over a cup of mead was to be kept or else you were expected to die trying to keep it!
That said, meditation is a vital art that every Druid should know and we all need it to get through life, no matter who we are and what we are going through, and this well written primer will be a useful guide.

I love the concepts of harmony with nature, and it is a big part of my fledgling belief system, so this was an ideal book for me. The author gives you a lot of positive reinforcements throughout her writing and helps you to see that you can turn negative forces in your life into positive things. The writing is beautiful and uplifting and made me want to learn more about these things and share them with others.
I would certainly recommend this book to others looking to expand their knowledge on these topics. This book not only teaches you, but us also interesting to read. Great job by the author.
