The Celtic Shaman (Practical Guide) by John Matthews

The Celtic Shaman (Practical Guide) by John Matthews offers a varied and easily followed plan of self-tuition for anyone interested in Celtic mythology and the Western mysteries.

Celtic Shamanism derives from the native traditions of North-West Europe including Britain, Ireland, Scotland, The Isle of Mann, and Wales.

The shamanic contribution of the Celts and their predecessors has been overlooked until recently, and is one of the last shamanic traditions to be explored.

While Celtic Shamanism shares common elements with American, Australian and Siberian teachings, it derives entirely from Celtic source material.

I have found this book to be very helpful as well as useful. It is a practical guide to delving into Celtic Shamanism.
