Book Review: Ogam, The Celtic Oracle of the Trees by Paul Rhys Mountfort
Ogam: The Celtic Oracle of the Trees is a comprehensive and clear introduction into using the divination practice of Ogam. It begins with a brief history of Ogam and the cultural changes that have occurred around the practice. The second section of the book describes each Ogamfew in detail. The final section describes how one can cast and understand the Ogam readings. Every topic is easy to understand and provides a great amount of information for a introductory book.
I loved the second section of the book about the Ogamfews. Each Ogamfew included a bit about the name, keyword, a picture, visualization, meaning, natural characteristics, storylines, and magic and folklore. Almost every learning style is used to help readers get a strong lesson on the message behind each Ogamfew. This style also lends itself well to quick reference questions and lengthy/detail orientated study.
This is going to be such a fantastic reference book. I’ve already enjoyed it so much!
