About this book:

Imagine a man who influenced the likes of Alan Watts, was a friend of Krishnamurti, whose work was lauded by Henry Miller, and had the audacity to challenge the great psychiatrist, C.G. Jung, during one of Jung’s own seminars.  Also imagine that this very same man who authored thirteen books and countless articles on the relationship between psychology, psychotherapy, philosophy, spiritual practice, and Druidry was left out of the history books, and pushed to the margins of obscurity.  Who was this man?  This man was the early 20th-century British psychologist and Druid, E. Graham Howe.

Howe was a master psychologist but even more so a Druid, whom he described as being, “masters of the art of living.”  He was a Druid in psychologist’s clothing, a psychologist who used psychology and psychotherapy to convey his secret Druidic doctrine.  Like C.G. Jung’s Gnostically influenced Liber Novus (The Red Book), which was the secret foundation for all of his psychological writings, Howe’s Druidry was the secret foundation for his own writings.  Howe’s Druidry had one primary aim, which was to heal psychological suffering.  Whether he was referencing psychology, philosophy, or spirituality, Howe pointed to the art of healing in them all.

E. Graham Howe was one of the first psychologists to integrate spiritual practice with psychotherapy. Because he did so during a time when psychoanalysis was being established as a dogma, Howe was marginalized and even anathematized by the various psychoanalytic schools.  This book will situate Howe within the history of psychoanalysis, showing his work in relation to Sigmund Freud, C.G. Jung, and Alfred Adler just to name a few.  It will also provide a summary and reading of his metaphysical psychology, illustrating his views on depression, love, time, war, self-knowledge, psychotherapy as a way of being, and more.  The book will also present some Druidic foundations of Howe’ psychology, in the spirit of the 18th – 19th century Welsh poet, Iolo Morganwg, whose own Druidry, like Howe’s, was inspired, emphasizing more of the Druidic soul rather than blind allegiance to any tradition or belief system.

Included in this book are forewords by author and Druid, John Michael Greer, and Jungian analyst and author, Stanton Marlan.

    Anathema Publishing has always been one of my absolute favorites publishers, which says a lot considering how many are out there. The top notch quality of work they produce is always consistent, and this absolutely includes A Druid in Psychologists Clothing. The collectors edition of this title is stunning in itself, with quality material used to produce the spine/covers, beautiful silk like end papers, and smooth thick paper used for the text block. The content itself is also phenomenal. Ian Edwards is a terrific writer, providing us with deep philosophical insight into the thoughts and writings of Howe. I also love the section covering the 4th dimension as quantum mechanics has always been a fascinating subject to me when furthering my esoteric and occult studies.
