Ian Corrigan has been learning and teaching in the Pagan community for over thirty years. He is a Third Degree Craft initiate, now an Archdruid Emeritus and a Senior Priest of Ár nDraíocht Féin (ADF). We met so many years ago and White Light Pentacles distributed his books and recordings for many, many years. When we first acquired this book, it was printed in Ian's hand of write. Later it evolved into its current form, and then intagrated into a larger work.
On the back cover:
The Portal Book is a grimoire of the Celtic Craft. It offers a solid foundation in modern pagan ways that will be useful to beginners and experienced Pagans alike. A discussion of the basic teachings of Celtic Witchcraft, including Celtic God/Goddesses, the Wheel of the Year, and Magic. Ian teaches the initiate personal training through lessons and rituals of Simple Devotion, Self Blessing, Hallowing, and a New Moon Rite. Basic Prayers and simple spells are also featured. While many guides to Wicca focus on tools, seasonal rites and spells, The Portal Book is aimed at building the skills that support any kind of Pagan spiritual work.
The Portal Book was written for new students of a working Coven of the Celtic Traditionalist Craft. Now it has been edited and made available to the wider Pagan community. Beginning with descriptions of core Craft symbolism, the student is led to deeper practices that allow true worship and effective Magic. The Portal Book includes:
The Five-Fold Pantheon
The Eight Holy Nights
The Home Shrine
Solo Rites of Worship
Making the Spirit Wand
Practical Magic (less)
From the Author
I'm a Neopagan of the Druidic sort, interested in Celtic polytheism as it might manifest for modern people in North America. I'm also an occultist, broadly interested in arcane and magical systems and ideas, from medieval grimoires through Hindu Tantra and Asian shamanism to Thelema and Chaos Magic. I'm a fan of the folk music of the British Isles and its modern inheritors as well as of fantasy and horror lit, especially the work and legacy of HP Lovecraft.
