Rhiannon Ryall is well known for her book West Country Wicca, which is primarily concerned with the overt/public face of Wicca. This new book brings some of the inner mysteries to those interested in the Pagan Path or Tradition. The tradition Rhiannon describes here has its roots in Western Ireland. Inevitably the Druidic Path crosses that of any genuine Gaelic Tradition of Wicca, so this book contains much Druidic lore. Background material pertaining to the Druids is also included as this explains much of their way of viewing the world and it enables the reader to understand more fully their attributions in general and their rituals in particular.

The book is divided into five parts: Chapter 1: Casting circles, seasonal sigils, wands, woods for times of year, Celtic runes, the Great Tides, making cones and vortices of power, polarities and how to change them, the seasonal Ogham keys and some Ogham correspondences. Chapter 2: Old calendar festivals and associated evocations, the Call of Nine, two versions of the Six Pointed Dance", Mistletoe Lore, New Moon Working, the Five-fold Calendar. Chapter 3: Underlying fundamentals of Magical Working and some related matters, Magical squares and their applications, use of the Oghams, the Diamond Working area, ancient Saxon curse and the East Anglian Shepherds counting system. Chapter 4: Five initiations, including a shamanistic one, some minor calls, some little magics. Chapter 5: Background information on the Celtic path, the Arthurian myth and its underlying meaning and significance, the Three Worlds of the Celts, thoughts regarding the Hidden Path, some thoughts and final advice. A veritable treasure trove for anyone interested in the Celtic path.
