Description

A Zen approach to the World, the Universe and Everything.

Many of today’s disenfranchised pagans in the West appear to be seeking a spiritual connection to life without feeling the need to become a witch, a Wiccan, a shaman, Heathen, or a Druid.  Here the Shinto approach fulfils the basic need for a belief system based on what we would define as simple animism and ancestor worship in accord with the world’s other, authentic, animistic traditions such as the Australian Aboriginal and Native American way of life; while Zen provides the intellectual stimulation rising from the simplicity of basic folk-belief to elevate the soul to a higher level of mysticism.

“…her take on Zen is completely unexpected and totally original.  I don’t think she has ever failed to surprise and often startle me in her previous books.  This one is no different….” Alan Richardson, esoteric author.

Melusine Draco trained in the magical arts of traditional British Old Craft with Bob and Meriem Clay-Egerton.  She has been a magical and spiritual instructor for over 20 years with Arcanum and the Temple of Khem, and writer of numerous popular books.  She now lives in Ireland near the Galtee Mountains.
