If you have been looking for a cup to dip into the deep well of Celtic spirituality, you have found it in this book. Carl McColman knows better than to try to quench your thirst. Instead, he offers such brimming sips of Celtic storytelling, hospitality, soul friendship, and earthly blessing that you are bound to set off in search of more.
Invitation - Celtic - Wisdom - Myth - Poetry
An Invitation to Celtic Wisdom draws on myth, folklore, poetry, and the tales of Celtic saints and heroes, to explore the spiritual tradition of the Celtic peoples — a tradition rooted in hospitality, love of nature, and a mystical sense of the presence of God. The Celtic way is more important than ever in our increasingly fractured and troubled times. It’s not just for people who have Irish, Scottish or Welsh ancestry — this is a universal wisdom for all people.
This book inspires us to say ‘yes’ to life by giving us tastes of Celtic spiritual treasures. Carl McColman is a true shanachie — he loves telling stories that make our hearts sing.
Book - Parts
The book is divided into three parts:
Part One: The Celtic Mystery: we begin by exploring the mystery inherent in the Celtic spiritual path with a brief discussion of the three streams of Celtic spirituality and an introduction to core ideas like thin places, holy wells, and “the edge of waiting.”
Part - Saints - Faith - Saints - Desert
Part Two: The Celtic Saints: we go deeper by discovering how the faith of the Celtic saints is rooted in the desert spirituality of the early Christian tradition. We look closely at several Celtic saints, including Patrick, Brigid, and Brendan.
Part Three: Walking the Celtic Path: How do we embody Celtic wisdom...
