  • The Lost Book of the Grail

    Caitlin Matthews

    Product Code: BZIDX
    Paperback
    Reveals the long-forgotten prequel to the Grail mythos and how it has profound resonance with modern times Unveiling the long-forgotten prequel to the Grail quest stories, Caitlin and John Matthews examine The Elucidation of the Grail, a forgotten 13th-century French text, and show how it offers the key to understanding the sevenfold path of the Grail and the deeper stories beneath the Christian Grail narrative. Beginning with a new translation of The Elucidation by foremost esotericist Gareth Knight and Caitlin Matthews, the authors provide a complete commentary on the poem, revealing a startling alternative cause of the Wasteland and the Grail quest, one which has a profound resonance with our own times. They examine the forgotten story of the Faery Wars and explain the Faery Accord, an agreement that once existed between humans and the Faery and upon which the spiritual and physical health of the land depends. The offering of the Grail and its regenerative powers by the Maidens of the Wells--Faery women--was part of this Accord. King Amangons and his men violated the Accord, through their abuse of the Well Maidens and other evil actions, causing the wasting of the land. The Knights of King Arthur seek to avenge the Well Maidens and rebirth the Grail to restore access to the lost paradisiacal "Courts of Joy" held in ancestral memory. On their quest, they encounter the Rich Company whose greed keeps the Knights occupied in long wars of attrition, yet their quest to restore the generous hospitality of the Wells--the true Grail, the Faery Grail--continues. In addition to the Faery Accord and Knights' quest, the authors examine the Seven Guardians of the Stories, the Rich Fisher, the Courts of Joy and paradise lost, and the otherworldly Land of Women. They show how this lost book of the Grail reveals themes familiar to the modern world and offers hope of healing the rift between the worlds of Faery and human as well as restoration of our natural belonging to the land.

  • The Ancestral Oracle of the Celts

    Caitlin Matthews

    Product Code: BYZPF
    Other
    By the renowned Celtic and shamanic expert Caitl n Matthews, this is the only oracle that uses the archetypes of the Celtic world to connect us to our ancestors, allowing us to consult them for guidance and insight, and to respond to their questions to clarify our thinking. With an 88pp guidebook and 40 cards (beautifully illustrated by Wil Kinghan) embodying archetypes of the Celtic world, this fantastic interactive oracle offers a way of consulting and communicating with our ancestors, whatever our race or culture. Two sets of cards make up the Oracle: 1. Divine Ancestor Cards: these eight cards represent the ancestors from whom everyone alive is descended - the matriarch (goddess) and patriarch (god) archetypes whom we all recognise. 2. Clan Cards: these 32 cards represent the circle of Common Ancestors, who stand behind our more recent forebears and hold a huge collective of wisdom. There are four clans: Truth, Honour, Sovereignty and Wisdom, each one based on a category of Celtic society (farmers, warriors, nobles and artists/craftspeople). You can draw cards in different ways: a single card for immediate guidance, or spreads of between three and eight cards for a more in-depth reading (these are covered in detail in the guidebook). The oracle given by each of the Clan Cards enables you to make decisions, navigate challenging situations and follow your highest path, while the questions posed by the Divine Ancestors question your attitude to the issue you're asking about and help you to understand your own deeper motives. These ancestor cards are also perfect for approaching problems within a family or social group, including those passed down from our recent ancestors as well as those generated in the current era. Celtic tradition is an enduring source of cultural and spiritual inspiration for many, making a bridge to the wisdom of our ancestral heritage, whatever our origins. Throughout, Caitl n has been inspired by rich stories of Celtic mythology and legend, which help express the meaning of each card.
