Book Review Monday – Pathworking Through Poetry by Fiona Tinker


Buy it here: Pagan Portals – Pathworking through Poetry:Pagan Pathworking through poetry: exploring, knowing, understanding and dancing with the wisdom the bards hid in plain view.

I urge you not to overlook this book just because the author may not be involved with the same pantheon as you. The skills taught in this small volume are valuable to any person who is interested in communicating with Deities who may have been ‘forgotten’, so to speak.

The author has selected a bunch of poems and not only demonstrates how to use critical thinking and poetry analysis skills to find hidden meanings and clues, but also how to use the concepts and stories as meditations/journeys to communicate, worship and journey to various Deities.

This book impressed me with the subtle details – like how Gods are NOT spell ingredients, but actual People who should be approached with respect, and the easy to learn skills that are easily lifted from the examples given and put into practice elsewhere.

Although, if you are from an Irish/Scots or Druid/Celtic based tradition, you will find this especially useful.

  1. I love how it opens up the possibilities of poetry, working alone with pathworking is tough – keeping track of the journey, but a poem can hold that for you. really glad you liked it too.
