Celtic Shaman: A Practical Guide by John Matthews
   
                         
   
This book is a series of conversations with the people of the Sidhe (pronounced SHEE) and the Faery Realms which John began some years ago. What the Faeries have to say to us is of great relevance to our present times. This book provides a powerful way of contacting the realm of faery for yourself and comes with several key exercises.

This extraordinary book has been praised by many, including Celtic teachers Frank MacEowen and Tom Cowan.
     
Tracks include: Caitlín’s own songs Grailless Lands, Troytown Carol, Mabon’s Journey, Sacred Companions, Wildwood Chant, Song of the Spindle as well as traditional folk songs like King Orpheo and Sheath & Knife, and sacred carols of the land: Corpus Christi Carol, The Leaves of Life. With R.J. Stewart on psaltery and many other instruments.
     
These ten Celtic Love Stories include original stories by Caitlín of the Three Gwenhwyfars, the love story of Liadin and Curithir, and a reconstruction of the British myth of Caswallawn and Fflur who was stolen away by Julius Caesar, as well a retellings of Deirdre, Thomas the Rhymer, The Loathly Lady and Gawain and many others.

Lovers noble and ignoble, successful and tragic are revealed in this fine hardback book. Only published in USA and never available in UK.

Learn to work with the spirits, to relate to the festivals of the Celtic sacred year, to journey to the Celtic gods and goddesses. Read about the mysteries of the ancient Celtic world and see how these can be applied to our own 21st century lifestyle.

Celtic Wisdom Oracle by Caitlín Matthews
   
                         
   
For all who love shamanism and the Celtic worlds, this 40 card set depicts the three realms of the otherworld and its inhabitants: animals, divinities, places, objects. The cards can be used for meditation, as journeying gateways or destinations, as well as for divination. In this new edition, the original art of Chesca Potter is restored to new life again.
     
This year-long pilgrimage helps you connect the cycles of your soul to the circle of the seasons. From Samhain in the winter half of the year, through from Beltane in the summer months, here are mediations on the gifts and blessings of life to the insights and promises of the soul, enabling you to complete your own sacred circuit of the turning year. Each daily meditation includes a practical task to implement.  
     
This book explores the seership traditions of the Celtic peoples, from the professional divinatory techniques of the ancient fíli or vision-poets, to the everyday omens sought by gifted seers from the world of nature. The art of seeing the invisible through faery lore, prophetic vision and the omens of the natural world derives from a unified understanding of the inspirational cosmos and the locations and spirits of the otherworld. Throughout there are suggestions for deepening personal vision.
     
This oracle was created in 1990 as the basis for our Walkers Between Worlds courses, and is now available as an ancestral oracle where you can ask the ancient ones and forerunners to guide your questions and bring advice. The 40 cards can also be used for ancestral healing rituals and meditation. Each of the 8 divinities and the 32 Celtic ancestors form a council of help and wisdom that can bring resourceful insights to your issues and questions. Sit in meditation and learn from your deep ancestors.  Currently out of print

The Spirit of Nature Oracle, by John Matthews, with 25 cards by Will Worthington (of The Druid Animal Oracle) draws upon the wisdom of the trees and ogham lore.  Each of the cards represents one of the ogham trees and is painted in such a way as to look alive and watching the diviner.  There are certainly real tree spirits looking out of the cards! The accompanying book draws upon the lore of the trees and the wisdom of the Green Man.
