Descrição do produto
-- Rupert Sheldrake
"Horses and the Mystical Path reveals the oneness of all life and how we humans benefit when we reduce the barriers between animals and ourselves. Animals have much to teach us, and we are healthier when we allow these communications to flower. Horses and the Mystical Path shows the universality of consciousness and the sacredness of all life -- a lesson our world desperately needs."
-- Dr. Larry Dossey, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things
"Strap yourself into a Celtic saddle for a stirring mystical ride into the horse-human relationship. The McCormicks take us on a provocative journey through spirit, time, and place, aiding our parched souls to soak up ancient Celtic and Sufi as well as modern Celtic-Christian wisdom for coming into right relationship with all living things. This book will open the heart of readers to the divine in nature, and in themselves, through one of our most ancient of teachers and most beloved of co-walkers: the horse."
-- Frank MacEowen, Celtic shamanic guide and author of The Mist-Filled Path
"An engaging, accessible exploration of ancient myths, modern psycho-spiritual theory, and profound personal experience. The McCormicks follow their horses into a deeper, more soulful realm, one where four-legged sages tutor, enliven, and uplift the human spirit."
-- Linda Kohanov, author of The Tao of Equus and Riding between the Worlds
"Adele, Deborah, and Thomas McCormick have given us a very beautiful and compelling book on Celtic mysticism. This cosmic, nature-based spirituality is deeply connected with horses, as well as other species, and explores their powerful natural connections with us and with life itself."
-- Brother Wayne Teasdale, author of The Mystic Heart and A Monk in the World

I felt a real heart sink as I read the first pages and the sentence " Even today, if one has an affinity toward the Celtic Way, one is indeed a Celt". Try explaining that to Plaid Cymru.
This book makes the unforgiveable mistake of confusing spirituality with religion ... page xii " we discovered that if we were to be effective in our work , we needed to use both pyschology and spirituality. We stood at a cross roads between pyschology and religion and could see that these two disciplines ...needed to be reintegrated'. .... ye gods...
The Religious Dogma within this Book with the Capitalisation of so many Words which the authors think of Special Significance is Intensely Irritating.
There is an essence of wisdom in the book, which basically is to let go of your ego (or even your Ego) to enable your true authentic self to be related to by the horse, but you can gain that unoriginal idea from the world of Horse Communication much more enjoyably by reading the books of the true pioneers in this field, such as Linda Kohonov than by wading through this poor attempt to re-write Celtic history through the looking glass of a re-discovered Christianity.
Make no mistake, this is not a history book about the Celtic love of the horse; Epona and Rhiannon and even the 1200BC Uffington White Horse don't merit a mention - because all Celts apparently spent their lives waiting for Christ and St Michael to come and Show them The Way (p78). Apparently the ‘Celts communicated with God in two key ways – through communion with Creation and through the Bible’ (p 79); presumably divine inspiration enabled the Celts to read the Bible during the 600 years of their existence BC, throughout the Dark Ages and also before the Bible was first printed in their own language in the 16th Century......
The authors complete lack of comprehension of Hwyl just compounds their poor treatment of Celtic history. If you make it towards the end of this book, you'll read that the "Omni-potent One can make (those) decisions on our behalf". Sadly he failed to help save my time and money in buying and wading though this book.
Hard, screeching stop.
What about "communion" with nature, the planet, the Goddes... there's zero mention of the Goddess — a well-known entity to Pagan communities.
There were a few gems of information here and there, but having spotted so many errors and slants, I feel compelled to seek out information that corroborates the statements and information in this book.
Bottom line, if you are coming from a Pagan orientation... take a pass on this book.
The professional backgrounds of the author and her daughter, who led the group seminar, dealt with severely psychotic types of patients. It seemed to have desensitized them to normal people and for what most of us spiritual seekers understand as spirituality. As a result, many of our group left feeling like the horses were beautiful, but the people were strangely promoting their seminars in completely the wrong category. They were using their gifts of horsemanship to further the sport that tortures for entertainment . . . bullfighting. This was NOT a spiritual/mystical retreat. It seemed to be a vehicle that fed their PhD egos but not their horses. One that was brought out accidentally, needed to be removed by the SPCA it was so starved.
During the last half of the last day, they began to defend their love for the ring. When I understood this, I almost stopped breathing at one point. I cannot remember ever leaving someplace with such a need to shake the dust off my feet and move on. Read the book and you run the risk of supporting efforts to resurrect a terrible sport that is outlawed in many parts of the world now, but for whom this group glorifies as noble.
Personally, I prefer autistic children and those who are disabled on the backs of horses, not those looking for blood. We are NOT in the dark ages anymore!
There are much better spiritual books through, I would look for them. Such as:
Zen Mind Zen Horse, Spirituality Through Horses
Tao of Equus
