Journeys of the Soul — The Life & Legacy of a Druid Chief
by Philip Carr-Gomm
Hardback, 220 pp
Ross Nichols was one of the key figures in the revival of interest in Druidry and Celtic Spirituality in modern times. The Order of Bards Ovates and Druids, which he founded, is now the largest Druid group in the world. Journeys of the Soulvividly describes Nichols’ journey through life in the first complete biography of this enigmatic and influential Druid Chief, allowing us an intimate and controversial glimpse into the life and mind of one of the founding figures of the modern Pagan movement.
Photographs, sketches and colour reproductions of his watercolours are included with the letters and diary excerpts of Nichols’ own journeys, continuing the theme of Philip’s biography with stories of travel in evocative places: by the pyramids in Egypt, in the mountains of Bulgaria, in the ‘House of Mysteries’ at Pompeii.
In these travel journals, Nichols weaves impressions of the countryside and the people with historical and archaeological information, psychic impressions, anecdotes, jokes and poetry. As we follow a historian and spiritual teacher on his journeys, we, too, are taken on journeys of the soul.
