The Sacred Path
Patrick M McCollum
Are you ready to discover the underlying secrets hidden deep within nature-based, spiritual Magic? Would you like to understand how you can leverage ancient wisdom to magnify your deepest prayers and intentions?
For centuries, spiritual seekers drawn to nature-based spiritual wisdom, have walked the Sacred Path in order to learn the mysteries of nature and the Magical traditions of our ancestors- the indigenous people from Northern European lands. Until recently, these mysteries were passed on through oral tradition from teacher to student through the practice of walking together in the forest and sharing the Magical lore. As modern times evolved, many of these mysteries have been lost... to all but a few.
In Courting the Lady, Rev. Patrick McCollum takes you on a journey that shares these elusive mysteries. By literally placing the readers on the Sacred Path with him in his life's adventures of nearly fifty years ago, he reveals amazing truths about nature and the principles of spiritual Magic in the tradition of Old Way; through stories of his experiences that bring this journey to life.
Venerable Reverend Patrick McCollum has walked the Sacred Path since 1965. This story begins with his near death experience at age 15 and the discoveries that lead him to become an initiate and High Priest of one of the nation's earliest covens. Patrick has worked diligently to keep alive the mysteries and magic passed down by predecessors through oral tradition for centuries. He has been active as a teacher of the Old Ways for almost fifty years and is known for his world peace work and interfaith ministry.
