'Singing with Blackbirds reveals the ancestral riches of shamanic consciousness and practice among the Gaels. Stuart Harris-Logan invites us to study the resources of our native tradition and hear the song that is forever singing...' -- Caitlin Matthews, author of Encyclopaedia of Celtic Wisdom and Singing the Soul Back Home. 'This seamlessly written exploration is a compelling and thought-provoking journey through the terrain of our Celtic shamanic inheritance. The binding threads of this book are a rope strong enough to tie to the past, and bring the power of these ways more fully into the present and future.' -- Frank MacEowen, author of The Spiral of Memory and Belonging. 'I do not believe that a book has existed about Gaelic Shamanism that has not only been written by a native Gael who is an interested and well informed academic, but also a experienced shaman... until now. This work is well overdue and may well have come in answer to the prayers to the Universe of many genuine seekers, wishing be led to a Gaelic shamanic path...' -- Fionntulach, (Fiona Davidson) Head of the Ceile De Order.
