Lynne Marie Rowland is the author of two books, The Gnosis of the Salmon and A Compendium of Shaman Animals.
Lynne is inspired by a wide range of mythology and spiritual practices. Her particular interest in the Gnostic Christian tradition was sparked by the groundbreaking work of Carl Jung and led her to travel to spiritual centers exploring and reading original materials from Nag Hammadi in Egypt and the Dead Sea Scrolls in Israel. She has studied the Celtic Shamanic tradition for many years. To augment these studies, she visited sites of Celtic lore and myths such as Brittany, and lands imbued with Shaman traditions from China to Chile. Her travels have ranged as far as Antarctica, India, Africa and Japan seeking spiritual growth through many varied faiths and experiences. She has also studied forgiveness extensively in both Eastern and Western philosophical traditions.
Lynne still believes in magic.
