An excellent book The premise of this Pagan Portals volume is that Zen teachings and Druidry can combine to create a peaceful life path that is completely and utterly dedicated to the here and now, to the earth and her rhythms, and to the flow that is life itself To begin, the author gives a brief yet comprehensive overview of Zen Buddhism while pointing out that the precepts of Zen need not be associated with a particular religious tradition and Druidry Her simple and eloquent writing style is [...]
I picked this up from s Kindle bookstore, thinking that the small 74 page size, and the relatively low cost of the book would make it something close to a pamphlet rather than a book Was I ever wrong While the 74 page size made for some really quick reading, the material is extremely deep and powerfully full of meaning The start of the book steps into the concepts of Zen and then walks the reader through the concepts of Druidry Neither are extremely detailed, but rather very well thought out int [...]
3 stars.I had very mixed feelings about this little book I enjoy the author s blog, and I find her writing style very approachable and easy to read I appreciate her easy description of what Zen Druidry is to her, and how she lives it every day I found most of the explanations of Zen Druidry easy to understand, and some of them I would like to incorporate into my own way of living I think living in the moment, instead of in the past or in the future, is incredibly important and something that wo [...]
This is a fascinating book that lays out the core concepts of both Zen and Druidry, exploring the points of overlap and the ways in which these two traditions compliment each other The writing is precise, lucid and beautifully accessible whilst managing to put across a vast amount of information in a very small space I would say that even if you aren t attracted to the idea of Zen, this book is still well worth your time, because of what it shows through the contrast between the two traditions J [...]
I admit, when I picked up the this book from the Kindle store, I was hoping for some profound realization, something that I hadn t run into before I was hoping for something novel and exciting.What I got was as the Buddhist saying goes nothing special That s not to say that this disappointed me, far from it in fact The blending of Zen Buddhism and Druidry that van der Hoeven does is as simple as being totally present in this very moment.Because, when you get down to it, this very moment is all t [...]
A small, heartfelt but frustratingly slight book On the other hand, it sent impelled me to go off back to a couple of suspended, heavier reads and to look at new ways of incorporating my existing Yoga and Buddhist practice the latter admittedly rather minimal into my ongoing exploration of paganism.
This little book gives an outline of druidry, what it is and how it works, followed by an introductory tour of Zen teachings and then shows you how to bring both traditions together to form Zen Druidry Very intriguing concept, well written and interesting for anyone on a spiritual path.
