A sound, practical introduction to a complex and wide-ranging subject. Danu Forest's guidance chimes closely with my own experience of working with spirits over many years. Integrating folk traditions, literary sources and archaeology with contemporary practice, Danu combines visually strong and spiritually apposite ideas with sensitive advice concerning our relations with spirit, as well as working with sacred sites. As Danu says, how we perceive the spirits we connect with as Druids does make a difference. Having been plugging the notion of Druidry as the native 'shamanic' tradition of Britain and Europe since 1974, it's good to see that it's increasingly catching on, not only amongst fellow Druids, but also amongst archaeologists. I believe we are heading in a direction that links us very firmly with the spirit of ancient Druidry. This is what I call rekindling the sacred fire of Druidry, and I believe Danu Forest's 'The Druid Shaman' will play a part in this rekindling. --Philip Shallcrass - 'Greywolf' Chief of the British Druid Order.


Covering the basics of Celtic shamanism, with reference to traditional lore and source materials through the lens of both ancient and modern Druidry and shamanic practice, The Druid Shaman is a well rounded guide, showing the seamless cross over between Druidry and shamanism in the Celtic tradition. It covers topics such as how to attain and work with guides and allies, understanding the spirit realm and interaction with spirits of all kinds, accessing powers of place, traveling the world tree and working with the seven directions and exploring and navigating within the Celtic Otherworld. With practical techniques, exercises and core skills, The Druid Shaman can be used as a practical manual as well as a valuable resource for practicing shamans and druids as well as those new to the subject.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A brilliant introduction to Celtic traditions 25. März 2014
Von Mike Williams - Veröffentlicht auf
They say good things come in small packages and that is certainly true of The Druid Shaman. In just over 80 pages, accomplished practitioner Danu Forest introduces Druidry and Celtic shamanism and explains how to build a modern practice drawing the evidence from ancient finds and contemporary folklore. It is an astonishing feat and this slim volume beats several considerably longer books hands down. Taking readers on a journey, Danu starts by defining Druids and shamanism and finds evidence for their existence in the Celtic past. Being so well researched, this is fascinating stuff but Danu also includes practical guides and exercises right from the first chapter, and these are the real gems within the book. Exploring posture, the working space, finding an ally, meeting the ancestors, interacting with local spirits, and discovering the otherworld of the shaman, Danu uses her simple, direct, and down-to-earth style to guide readers through their first steps on the path and much more thereafter. She is a natural teacher. A final chapter looks at Druid divination, including several techniques drawn from the Irish myths, which were new to me. For anyone who is curious about Celtic traditions, about Druidry, or about shamanism, this book has it all. I enjoyed every page and would thoroughly recommend it. Good things do indeed come in small packages.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great introduction 19. Februar 2014
Von Laura Perry - Veröffentlicht auf
I really didn't know what to expect from this book; Druidry and shamanism are two traditions that are not often linked, and as a shamanic practitioner, I'm far more familiar with the latter. But as I read, I was fascinated and impressed. Danu Forest makes the case for Druidry, in its original form, as the native shamanic tradition of the Celts. The shape-shifting and world-traveling heroes from ancient Celtic tales draw us into the customs and practices of the ancestral Celts with their music, their tools, their rituals.

While Ms. Forest gives plenty of background regarding the Celtic spiritual traditions, particularly those with a shamanic bent, this is largely a practical book. It takes the reader through the process of creating shamanic tools, finding spirit allies in nature, connecting with the ancestors, traveling among the worlds and seeking knowledge of the future through divination. I do recommend following it up with further training if you intend to continue with shamanic practice but this book provides a firm foundation for basic shamanic practice in a Celtic style and is an excellent starting point for those who are interested in this path.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Highly recommended 14. Januar 2014
Von Yvonne - Veröffentlicht auf
The Druid Shaman, as the title may suggest, looks at shamanism from a specifically Druid perspective, and its place as the ancestral shamanism of Britain and Europe. The book begins with an introduction to the Celts, Druids, what a shaman is and a look at the shamanic tale of Taliesin. Practical Druidic shamanic tools are shared, along with the very important basic tools of how to raise your own energy and power and how to create sacred space. The importance of the world tree and the need for balance reoccurs throughout the book.

Whilst there is no attempt by the author to teach shamanic journeying, through a series of guided meditations/pathworking exercises the reader is gently encouraged to learn to make contact with their own Druid guides and indeed the very Earth itself.

I have worked with Shamanism for a number of years and as such it was fascinating to read Forest Danu's Druid Shamanism whilst comparing and contrasting it to my own form. Of particular interest to me was the section on divination and as with other areas of shamanism, it was interesting to read about divination from a Druid perspective. As someone who has recently become a student of the OBOD I also enjoyed her explanations of some of the myths, legends and figures that accompany Druidry.

This is a well researched book, written by someone who clearly has both the theoretical knowledge and practical experience. The book is also well referenced and has a good reading list for follow up reading. I would highly recommend Druid Shamanism to anyone with any interest in Shamanism in general and in particular Celtic and Druid Shamanism.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Well done and thank you Danu Forest! 27. Juli 2014
Von Flick-M - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I am both a Druid and a practitioner of shamanic drumming and journeying (I won't specifically call myself a shaman), so I was intrigued to see how the author put the two subjects together. This is probably written partly as a beginner's book, and some of the basic information about the seasonal festivals, and exercises in visualisation, bear this out. However, there is always something to be learned from fresh material on even a familiar subject, and Danu Forest presents the year's wheel poetically and evocatively. I found the background information on the book's content and the history of the Celts and Druids authorative and well researched. Basic techniques are well covered, giving a foundation for practice, and more advanced ideas are offered in a way that invites exploration and inspiration.

In a field that is flooded with books on Native American shamanism, it's refreshing to find a book on European practice. Well done and thank you Danu Forest!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Workbook... 25. November 2014
Von Chapel Witch - Veröffentlicht auf
For the explorer of the Celtic otherworld, this is an invaluable guide and workbook. Danu Forest shines the ‘bright knowledge’ of her own experience from these magical realms straight onto the page and prepares the student for journeying (the basis of all shamanic practice) into this multi-layered and deeply spiritual territory.
As with any journey, signposts are important. The Celtic-Irish and British ancestral roots of Druidic lore are clearly set out and Shamanism as a method of finding healing and balance for the soul (practised by our ancestors) is explained thoroughly.
We know where we’ve come from.
The Celtic Shaman is viewed through a 21st century lens as a modern term with reference to Taliesin the great poet, as guide and initiator from history (mortal) and the mythic (otherworld) realms, giving he of the ‘radiant brow’ ample room to shine.
We know where we are.
Learning to expand awareness, to venture beyond physical boundaries to receive inspiration and instruction from the spirit world via guardians and allies is described as the shamanic state of consciousness…
Now we know where we’re heading.
In fact there is no stone left unturned by this writer as she lays the foundations for journeying with sound advice on tools and techniques from posture to divination.
How to raise energy in the tree posture is particularly useful as is also a thorough explanation of the soul - central to all shamanic work. As a keen yoga student I found the Kundalini ‘fire in the head’ piece particularly interesting as confirmation of the inter-connectedness of All Things, no matter where the origins – east or west.
And for anyone who gets themselves into a pickle with circles (more than you may think!) circle - casting is made easy with simple instructions and correspondences that make sense. A variety of illustrations throughout the book serve as an additional guide which is helpful.
This is a must-have for all shamanic students and teachers alike. One never stops learning and benefits are always gained from paying attention to the basics of any subject.
All good teachers lead by example… Danu Forest does this in The Druid Shaman, presenting her subject well and with the confidence of one who has travelled the landscape many times. Her confidence is infectious and carries the hallmark of good instruction and in acting as intermediary between this and the Otherworld; she shows us how our journey can be safe as well as magical.
Exploring has never been so enjoyable.
An inspiring and informative read.
