Book Review: Ladies of the Lake

Ladies of the Lake by Caitlin and John Matthews
Amazon Link: Ladies of the Lake

This book identifies nine women from Arthurian legend and coordinates them with Celtic mythology and goddess forms. It’s an easy read, if you’ve got a basic understanding of Arthur and some idea of goddess mythology. It is devided into nine main sections with an introduction and summary section.

Basically, the authors trace the lineage of the stories of each woman and relate them back to Celtic mythology. They also offer meanings and messages that the stories carry on that level. At the end of each section they provide a detailed visualization for working with these women in their guise as goddesses. Overall, it’s an interesting read, especially if you want to explore the feminine aspect in your life.
