Review:

"The Bardic Book of Becoming is a book modern Druids have needed for a long time. Deeply visionary, it offers a look into the spirituality of modern Druidic practice and the underlying beliefs and ideas which sustain it. I would recommend this not only to Druids everywhere, but to all those wishing to know more of this growing spiritual practice." --John Matthews, author of The Druid Source Book and Celtic Shamanism

"Ivan McBeth, has always meant three things to me: good friend, thoughtful wisdom, and world's foremost stone circle builder. Bigger than life, he needed two chapters in my book Stone Circles: A Modern Builder's Guide. He wouldn't fit in one. But it's the thoughtful wisdom, a lifetime's worth, that Ivan's posthumous book is all about. If you want to take up Druidry, or are curious about how it would grace your life -- and that of Gaia, our planet -- this book is the place to start." --Rob Roy, director of Earthwood Building School and author of 17 books including Cordwood Building, www.cordwoodmasonry.com

"This book is a paean of love for the Earth from a great smiling bear of a man. Such was Ivan McBeth. There are as many types of Druidism as there are Druids in this world, and in this book Ivan outlines what I call "Druidry of the Spirit," the path of the Heart from an English Druid's perspective. Anyone who wants to learn about modern Druids will benefit from this volume as will those following the path of Nature Spirituality. After reading the book they will never look at the Sacred Land the same way again." --Ellen Evert Hopman, Archdruid of Tribe of the Oak, and author of A Legacy of Druids: Conversations with Druid Leaders from Britain, the USA and Canada, Tree Medicine Tree Magic, and other volumes

"The Bardic Book of Becoming bubbles with vibrancy and creativity, as did its author. A book of Druid basics, it glints with deeper wisdom. I don't agree with every word, but wholly concur with its shimmering intention, its cry for personal responsibility and inspiration." --Emma Restall Orr, author of Living With Honour, The Wakeful World, and other books on Druidry and animism

"Ivan McBeth was a great teacher, guide, and a good friend. His view of the world was magical, visionary and shamanistic. This book is a wonderful gift and legacy to leave us all. Highly recommended." --Damh the Bard

"Ivan fully lived and embodied the Spirit of the Lord of the Dance and the Greening Power of Nature, and his joyous creativity is a testament to the simple wisdom and truth at the core of his beliefs, practices and teachings. I commend Ivan to anyone who would dance with the sun and the moon and the web of the world and find joy there." --Dr. Patrick MacManaway, author of Dowsing for Health, Cultivating the Light Body, and Keys to Grace, and is the co-founder of Circles of Peace

About the Author:

Ivan McBeth, a Druid in the Order of Bards, Ovates, and Druids (OBOD), founded the Green Mountain Druid Order, a modern mystery school based in Worcester, Vermont with his partner Fearn Lickfield. Ivan's passion was the creation of sacred space, especially stone circles. A founding member of the Circles for Peace project in the United States, he was co-responsible for the Burlington Earth Clock and 25 other full-sized stone circles around the world, including the large Swan Circle on the site of the Glastonbury Music Festival in the UK and the Kinstones in Wisconsin. Ivan died in 2016.
