Mehr über den Autor

Steve Blamires was born in the West of Scotland where the Celtic culture and the Gaelic language are both still strong. He now lives in New York State but prior to emigrating to the States he lived on the Isle of Arran, Scotland, a place considered by the ancient Gaelic Celts as the mystical Otherworld. He has taken a passionate interest in his indigenous Celtic culture since his early teens. Steve has published several books to much critical acclaim on Celtic mythology and belief. His most recent book is a biography of the Scottish writer William Sharp (1855-1905) who also wrote under the name Fiona Macleod. He has made numerous radio and TV appearances on both sides of the Atlantic, gives regular presentations and workshops throughout the US and UK on all aspects of Celtic culture and tradition. When he is not enjoying his home in the Hudson Valley he travels the world as a historian, presenter and tour-guide on National Geographic expedition ships.

He and his wife Jennifer run The Wee Tour Company - a tour company that designs and leads unique, tailor-made tours of Scotland for small groups with special interests, such as mythology, Celtic culture, photography, wool and yarn, whisky etc.

Synopsis

"Glamoury" refers to an Irish Celtic magical tradition that is holistic. This guidebook offers practical advice and modern versions of philosophies that should expand potential into areas previously closed. The reader may: view and experience the world in a more balanced, meaningful way; meet helpers from the Otherworld who may become valued friends; and live in tune with the seasons and gauge inner growth rates in relation to the Green World.

The exercises in this book are a lot more practical and more sensical than typical neopagan practice because whereas Wicca is basically just a lot of quirky rituals, the exercises in this book are instead otherworld journeys where the the practicioner creates their own personal otherworld in their mind and then populates it with characters for them to communicate with and places to explore. I found this to much more meaningful than Wiccan practice because the Glamourous world that you create is completely yours, and the lessons you learn seem to be a lot more effective than just doing a ritual. The book primarily consists of two key elements, meditative and concentrating techneiques, and an anthology of Celtics gods, goddesses and myths. By combining the mythology with the meditative practices, the practicioner thus creates their own otherworld. In many ways, you'll feel like a child again because you're basically just travelling through an imaginary world, but when you apply true-blooded Celtic myth to it, you can really understabd where and how make believe influences us. And to the true poets out there, the people who can grasp the lessons in life as they are taught through fantasy characters and experiences, this book will be an invaluable map for self enlighenment.

Part history, part mythology, with a liberal sprinkling of magick. Glamoury provides an over view of Irish Celtic Magic. Though Blamires himself admits that the book is only intended to give a basic grounding in the subject, there is certainly enough information to help you decide if this is the path of personal and spiritual growth for you. Glamoury is a "life-affirming, holistic, magickal system that will break down the barriers between you and the natural world." It is based on natural cycles and also the archetypes found in the cycles of myths of Celtic traditional stories and tales. Blamires is eminently qualified to present this material as he is one of the world's foremost Celtic scholars, and founder of the Celtic Research and Folklore Society. This book contains a plentiful bibliography and additional resources to allow you to continue delving into the subject.

This is a great book for research. The myths and origins of the Celts are represented nicely. I don't, however, recommend this book if you are looking for Spells or Rituals.
