Singing with Blackbirds is an investigation of the survival of primal Celtic shamanism in later folk-traditions of Gaelic speaking peoples. This is an insightful and intelligent work that brings together areas of study not normally combined.
'Singing with Blackbirds
reveals the ancestral riches of shamanic consciousness and practice among
the Gaels. Stuart Harris-Logan invites us to study the resources of our
native tradition and hear the song that is forever singing.'
not believe that a book has existed about Gaelic Shamanism that has not only
been written by a native Gael who is an interested and well informed
academic, but also an experienced shaman… until now.
