May 2008 – A Druid’s Herbal of Sacred Tree Medicine

Today as I write it is May 19 and the hawthorns on the mountain haven’t even begun to bud. That means it isn’t even Beltaine yet! Apparently my publishing schedule is right in sync with the weather. A Druid’s Herbal of Sacred Tree Medicine was supposed to be out around May 1. Now it won’t be out until June 9! but the good news is it can be pre-ordered (just go to the publications section of my website which takes you to Amazon.com). Fans of the book Tree MedicineTree Magic (now out of print) will appreciate the new book which covers the trees of the ancient Irish Ogham alphabet in detail, with herbal, spiritual and magical uses.

It has been a hectic time, I have a new job and a book signing every single weekend through June! (but no new book!) Happily Priestess of the Forest: A Druid Journey has been getting nice reviews.

Also I just got back from the Florida Pagan Gathering where I met some very nice folks, led a Druid ritual and did some talks. I want to recommend a fabulous band from Australia called SPIRAL DANCE. They dedicated a song to me called “The Oak” at the Florida gathering. I plan to use that song in rituals. Find them online here.

All blessings of a happy and peaceful summer!
