What a great idea. I think I'll try this next time I'm in Barnes and Noble. And I'll offer to guard their cafe pastries and hot chocolate as well. Wouldn't want any of those to disappear...  Wink

Forgot explanation, found their homepage Wink

http://www.treadwells-london.com/index.php

Yeah, that place is AMAZING.  I bought my copy of the de Cleene and Lejeune there.  I had a great chat with Christina, the owner, as well; we were both drooling over the awesomeness of the collection -- it's probably the BEST collection of European plant lore in 400 years -- and bemoaning the fact that there really is not much work being done on magical plant lore these days.  (Outside of ethnobotany, which is more focused upon studying folk practices with the aim of finding workable medicines.) 

The shop is GORGEOUS -- just what you want an old bookstore to be, with creaky floors, old shelves crammed with all kinds of cool stuff, and a big squashy couch in front.  They've got a fabulous mix of academic work, popular press work, and antique/rare books; one of the aims of the shop is to bring together academic work and spiritual work.  So academics and and Pagans and magicians -- who are sometimes the same person! -- will hold book launches, give talks, and so forth.  It is a great tragedy of my life that I don't live in London and visit that store every week.

I'd like to look at the spiritual meaning of trees and working with them from different angles. So if you know a good book trees play an important part in I'd love to hear your recommendation regardless from which path it is coming, but there should at least be some European trees in it.

Maybe someone can give me a suggestion which meaning trees have in different paths? I know there's the world tree in nordic traditions and there's a tree alphabet in celtic paths, but that's it. (I consider looking into books about those things, too.)


John Matthews (Author) and Will Worthington (Illustrator)'s Green Man Oracle is pretty good. It's based on Ogham, but focuses on the trees "associated" with Ogham, not specifically on that system. In other words, useful for tree lore, not so much for Ogham. It goes into a lot of Celtic associated mythology and lore. http://www.amazon.com/Green-Man-Tree-Oracle-greenwood/dp/0760747016

*sigh*
That sounds wonderful. London is not that far from here (two hour flight) but still too far to visit on a regular base.
I wish I could have a store like this.

What comes to my mind are :
Ogham: The Celtic Oracle  illustrated by Peter Pracownik

and :"Baume helfen  heilen" by  Manfred Himmel unfortunatelly this book is in German and I've got no idea whether it was translated into English, tried to find it but with no results. English title would mean Trees help to heal.

Thanks, I'm just trying to read through that one. I can read German a bit. Wink

Have you read it? I've always found books from an anthroposophical perspective interesting although I don't like the way he makes that stuff sound like an exact science. But otherwise it has a lot of interesting stuff in it.

Yes. I've read the book and I find it worth reading though it can be annoying at times.
