Spiritual understanding of the Irish Druid Path
Here are my Druid novels:
'Druid', already written.
'The Morrigan and The Dagda', being written now and it's planned sequel:
Llugh, Lord of Harvest'.
See the novels page for my other novels and my spiritual guidebook.
The first of my Druid path books is the novel: Druid
published in 2014.
Aislinn and Finn are called by destiny. They embark on a fearsome journey of love, healing, magic and courage. Despite all the odds, they seek to restore Corra to Ireland’s sacred mountain and renew the Druid heritage of the sacredness of the Earth.
When Saint Patrick set out to convert Ireland, he spent forty days in fasting on Ireland’s Holy Mountain, the mountaintop Croagh Patrick. He fought Corra there, as goddess of the Mountain. He called her a ‘she-demon’. He defeated her, and he consigned her to the lough below the Mountain for eternity. The Irish then lost their language, their forests and their sovereignty.
Can Aislinn and Finn now truly connect to the ever-flowing energies of Spirit? Can they restore the strength, power and beauty of the ancient Irish heritage? Can the energies of the Irish Gods and Goddesses shine forth? Can the Druid Path connect us to our true essence?
Spanning six millennia, the quest encompasses faith, courage, love, the use of power and contact with the Goddesses and the Gods.
The Morrigan and The Dagda
Due out in 2017, my forthcoming novel ‘The Morrigan and The Dagda’, records how the Gods and the Goddesses of the Tuatha De Danaan guide their people to reclaim their homeland in the West of Ireland, where they had been driven out by oppression centuries earlier. The Tuatha are people of fine skill, surpassing inspiration and great magic, and in their homeless travels they had found the deepest learning and had outstripped all teachers. But now the people are mortally tired of their homelessness. When they return to Ireland they burn their boats. But can they hold the land they claim? Can the alliances they seek support them? Will the effort of defending their heritage be so great that their special qualities will be harmed?
Will they be able to preserve a place on the face of this Earth, or will their survival depend on retreat to the Otherworlds until the time might be right for their return? To preserve the gift the Tuatha can make to humanity, a young woman of the people, the daughter of Cairbre their Chief Druid, bravely travels forward in time. She finds a son of the Irish, a young man of our own time, whose path is vision and healing. They are inescapably caught in the epic struggle for the Gods of the Tuatha to again be received in this world and together they prepare the gateway of vision and ritual and special knowledge through which the Tuatha can return to walk once again among humanity, to once more share their shining light, when the time is right for the inspiration of the Irish Gods to again be received. This novel is set in the time of the coming of the Tuatha Dé Danann to Ireland and the First Battle of Moytura. It's planned sequel 'Llugh, Lord of Harvest' is set at the time of the Second Battle of Moytura and all that happened as the outcome of that.
