The Path of The Blue Raven is the story of a struggling man who all his life has wrestled with questions, searched for meaning and discovered it in unexpected places. Although representing the beginning of a new adventure in one man's life, this book is not just his story for it also offers a beautiful and breath-taking collection of real-life stories of others who walked a similar path and have found great healing and blessing through nature based spirituality. To many cultures, the raven was and is a symbol of initiation into a new path. In sharing his own journey, the author introduces readers to a world of like-minded people who have stepped off the mainstream path onto the path of personal magic. As the ex-Catholic monk Thomas Moore says, 'The soul has an absolute, unforgiving need for regular excursions into enchantment. It requires them like the body needs food and the mind needs thought.' This book offers pilgrims (of any path) a way back to the rich and deep inner magic of childhood dreams.

Review quote

It is a wonderful quest romance, a story about the nature of religion, magic, England, modernity and many other things as well. (Professor Ronald E Hutton.) It is a journey that is both literally true and profoundly mythic. It is a magical journey. It is a journey that will speak to the hearts of many. (Revd. Simon Small, author of From the Bottom of the Pond.) Prepare to look at the world in a whole new light. (Drew McAdam, The Interrogator from TV's Trisha show.) Enjoyed it very much! (Cherie Blair.)
