    One thought on “A Circle of Stones”

    1. A Circle of Stones is a wonderful book by Erynn Rowan Laurie, one of the movers and shakers of the US Celtic Reconstruction movement. Though slender, it is packed with poetry, meditations and practical advice for adopting a Celtic spiritual practice into the modern world.The particular volume I read is the reprint of the original 1994 edition, the only additions being a Preface by the author, an addendum on Gaelic pronunciation by Caera Aislingeach, and some updating of the actual Gaelic used wi [...]

    2. Good introduction of the practical side of Celtric Reconstructionism. It describes making a sort of rosary/prayer necklace and includes prayers/meditations you can do at certain times of the year. Also explains making a home altar. Great read if you want to put your Celtic spirituality into practice.

    3. A nice advancement on celtic reconstructionism. This book would both a good introductary book to the path, and just a good further reading book for anyone who is already read up on the path. I can see why this is credited as being core reading for anyone interested in celtic reconstructionism.

    4. Very interesting, lots to think about. I'm concerned about possible errors--the introduction to this addition mentions that more information is available now than when it was originally written and that she would write it differently now, but no list of what should be changed.
