From the ancient sites of Albion, to the mysteries of the Templars in the Czech Republic, via myths, ley lines, dragons and the Slavic deities, to the strange and unsettling encounters with the work of a shaman in the middle of Brno, G. Michael Vasey shares his journey back to the Goddess, the Divine Feminine, whose balancing influence is so often lacking in a patriarchal society.

He tells his story in a simple, chatty, personal way that gives the book a lot of energy. You can empathise with his initial feelings of alienation and personal hurt in the opening chapter, and appreciate the ways in which he overcomes this, thanks to the innate magick he finds within the Land.
