Ever Ancient Ever New Celtic Spirituality in the 21st Century
by Dolores Whelan
About the Book
The Celtic spiritual and wisdom tradition is both ancient and new. It brings to light a new way for humankind to be in the world. Dolores believes that the deep truths held within the soul and psyche of our land are now ready to re-emerge. Her work endeavours to support this awakening, both within the land and the people.
Crucially, this book is not nostalgic. It uniquely explores how this ancient wisdom can form the basis of a value system upon which a new society can be built. It challenges us to integrate this wisdom into all aspects of our daily lives, reflecting the beliefs of our ancestors that there is no real separation between the spiritual and secular worlds.
“In this book Dolores Whelan, speaking with a sure voice from her own Celtic and woman’s roots, introduces people in a non superficial way to some of the depth and breadth of ancient Celtic wisdom. Drawing on her own work and appreciation of the Celtic calendar and the Celtic love of the land, of the seasons, of the Divine Feminine and more, she leads not only the reader but the Celtic tradition itself into the rich and profound ways it can contribute to healing humanity in this critical twenty-first century. Very readable, very insightful, very timely. A “must” book for all who are searching for a deep spirituality today.”
