In ancient Britain, the natives followed a religion based on the Goddess of the Moon. When the ancient Druids came with the Celts to the British Isles, they brought with them solar worship of a Sun God. Rather than force their beliefs onto the people, they combined the two, becoming the Priests of this all-encompassing faith. Today, what we base on these ancient traditions is called Celtic Wicca or Witchcraft.
There are many books written by scholars about the Druids. The Lost Books of Merlyn is also written by a scholar of the ancient teachings, but with one difference: Douglas Monroe presents the information so that you can use it today, for personal transformation and growth.
There are three sections or "books" here which are derived from an ancient manuscript called "The Book of Pheryllt." He uses the ancient texts to recreate the lore and legends of the ancient Celts. But this is not just a book of stories. Within each story is the wisdom of the Druids.
When the Druids roamed the Celtic lands, people knew the meanings within their stories. Today, much of that knowledge has been forgotten. So at the end of each section Douglas includes explicit instructions you can use to transform your life. He includes oracles and protection rituals, healing herbs, and musical secrets, how to tap into the energy of the earth, your own energy and even how to work with your dreams and astral project. He also reveals the ancient ways of evocation and the secrets of plants, herbs, and the sources of the Charms of Making (popularized in a movie).
Isn't it time you went back to the source? If you're involved or interested in any form of Celtic Wicca, I think you're going to love this book.

It gets its name from the pre-Christian Celtic Bealtaine, which... read this article
