Yearning for the Wind: throughout the ages, shamans and mystics have recognized that all created things share some level of consciousness, and that the ordinary and non-ordinary realities interact. This book by a well-known Celtic-American shaman explores those interactions and interconnected pathways, looking at the interdependence of our material life with our inner life and that of nature. Each chapter is a small window into the mysteries of nature and soul as they infuse daily life. Cowan draws on the teachings of medieval mystics, fairy legends, Celtic songs, present-day poets and seekers, and Native American stories. From these strands, he weaves a Celtic knot of Spirit, beautiful and strong.
