Walking The Tides. Seasonal Rhythms and Traditional Lore in Natural Craft.

£49.99

Product description

Nigel's follow-up book to the widely acclaimed Treading the Mill. This book aims to give the reader an overview of the great rhythmic tides and flows of energy that animate the Land throughout the year and the natural happenings that occur along the way. "Walking the Tides" describes holy days, celebrations, Saints' days, animals, birds, herbs, trees, weather and star-lore that are featured in the natural calendar of the British Isles and the uses to which many of these things are put in traditional practice. It takes the reader on an intimate journey into the heart of the Land and shows what actually occurs, rather than what is supposed to, enabling the reader to understand the rhythms and tides of the Land around them and to formulate their own celebrations and observances of these tides and their significant points, based on a clear understanding of the world around them. Much of the information given is taken from Traditional Craft practice, but also from old British folklore, the lore of the Farm, the author's own experience and even Church tradition, blended into a whole to give the reader a greater and deeper appreciation and understanding of the seasonal flow throughout the natural year and their place in it.
The book is in very good condition.
