"The Bardic Book of Becoming is a book modern Druids have needed for a long time. Deeply visionary, it offers a look into the spirituality of modern Druidic practice and the underlying beliefs and ideas which sustain it. I would recommend this not only to Druids everywhere, but to all those wishing to know more of this growing spiritual practice."
"This book is a paean of love for the Earth from a great smiling bear of a man. Such was Ivan McBeth. There are as many types of Druidism as there are Druids in this world, and in this book Ivan outlines what I call "Druidry of the Spirit", the path of the Heart from an English Druid's perspective. Anyone who wants to learn about modern Druids will benefit from this volume as will those following the path of Nature Spirituality. After reading the book they will never look at the Sacred Land the same way again."
"Ivan McBeth, has always meant three things to me: good friend, thoughtful wisdom, and world's foremost stone circle builder. Bigger than life, he needed two chapters in my book Stone Circles: A Modern Builder's Guide. He wouldn't fit in one. But it's the thoughtful wisdom, a lifetime's worth, that Ivan's posthumous book is all about. If you want to take up Druidry, or are curious about how it would grace your life -- and that of Gaia, our planet -- this book is the place to start."
"The Bardic Book of Becoming bubbles with vibrancy and creativity, as did its author. A book of Druid basics, it glints with deeper wisdom. I don't agree with every word, but wholly concur with its shimmering intention, its cry for personal responsibility and inspiration."
"Ivan McBeth was a great teacher, guide, and a good friend. His view of the world was magical, visionary and shamanistic. This book is a wonderful gift and legacy to leave us all. Highly recommended."
