Reveal the secrets of the esoteric druidic alphabet and unlock its potential as a powerful magical tool.

Writing systems have been used for magical power and mystical insight in spiritual history throughout history, and the Coelbren Alphabet is no different. 

Originally devised by a famous Welsh poet, the Bardic Alphabet, known as the Coelbren, has always seemed to hold great promise in the esoteric world. But because of its impenetrable nature, the capacity of the Coelbrean Alphabet as a system of divination has remained hidden, simply a relic of a bygone era. 

However, in this revised and expanded edition of his classic book John Michael Greer illuminates the power of the Alphabet and shows you how to implement it to full effect in your magical studies.

The book provides the name of each letter, alongside the Welsh keyword, meaning, symbolism and pronunciation as well as the divinatory interpretation of each letter, showing readers how to use this unique system for divination and magic.

It also provides sample readings, scrying, meditation techniques and tips for making your own Coelbren set. 

The new edition includes a chapter on gematria, as well as expanded chapters on the symbolism and magic of the alphabet.
