Take a voyage in the company of Celtic heroes to find your life's direction. The Celtic Book of the Dead is your guide to the mystical realms of the Celtic Otherworld, where the fullness of personal potential becomes clear. This is not a morbid journey, but a voyage to islands with plenteous salmon, feasting halls, and pillars of silver rising from the sea. There are challenges too, but each has its lesson for our lives today.

-Deck of 42 beautifully illustrated cards
-Book explaining the background to the Celtic Otherworld and how to use the cards
-Celtic Cross spread-cloth
