In ancient times, the druids were expected to be able to inform their community with crucial information about future events by means of divination. They would look for signs and oracles in nature in order to predict the best time to for instance plant and harvest crops and more generally to align themselves with the natural flow of the world around them. In this book Jon Hughes delves deep into the subject of pre-Celtic divination, where he dispels a lot of modern myths and introduces these ancient practices in a new light. We learn how to divine with staves, water and slate scrying, and how to develop the druidic skills of mediumship and prophecy. Hughes himself is a fourth generation Welsh druid, and bases most the material in this book on his own practices and the oral tradition of his forefathers.
