Not completed because it is a perpetual calendar. Absolutely priceless -- a treasure of wisdom and daily practice that I can't even imagine my life without.

Mid-July update: I am faithfully reading this nearly every day, having begun Jan. 1, 2022. And when I don't, I quickly catch up.. plus I admit I also HAVE to read ahead sometimes.

This is a TREASURE!!! Stories of knights of the Roundtable that I've never ever heard (not that I am all that knowledgeable to begin with), and best of all, powerful stimulus for ancestral awakenings and inspiration. Thank you FOREVER, John and Caitlín, for all you have given us, including this gorgeous wellspring of story and magic.

Final Update:
Oh how I hated to say goodbye on the afternoon of Dec. 31 (yesterday). What an absolutely mesmerizing daily practice this ended up being. I know that the Matthews wrote this decades ago, but of course that's nothing in comparison to centuries of lore and stories. And for me, it was a revelation -- filled with tales I'd never heard, names I'd never read, and imagination illuminated day in and day out for 12 full months of history and Mystery.

Again, my deepest gratitude to John and Caitlín for their diligence and scholarship. It has been a beautiful, sometimes harrowing, always magical journey. A gift of a lifetime.

I picked this up when I was taking a class 'The Celtic World'. The class was fascinating; debunking many of the myths and long held beliefs about where the Celts came from and where they ended up. The professor's particular bugbear was the so-called ancient Celtic spiritual rituals - rituals which have been created and/or developed in the modern world by people searching for a spiritual connection to nature.
This book is subtitled 'A Guide to Celtic Spirituality and Wisdom'. It is very silly. There are tidbits of actual history and actual legend to be gleaned if you dig hard enough, but - the bibliography is minimal and consists mostly of New Age Hipsters blathering on about distorted legends. In fact, of the books listed, 9 are written by the author herself. To be fair, she has included one or two historical documents, like Monmouth's History, but if she did read them, she took them as gospel, rather than fairy tale or mythical legend.
Don't bother with this.
