A handbook containing information of interest to gay men who want to know what paganism and Wicca are, how these traditions speak specifically to them and how to go about beginning to explore pagan spirituality as a rewarding spiritual path. The Path of the Green Man is composed of two parts, arranged in alternating chapters. The first part is a basic primer on paganism and Wicca, on spiritual practice and beginning to play with the tools of spirituality. The second part puts all of this information to use in a practical guide to living the pagan year.

Yes, most definitely. I already have listened to it multiple times.
I love the stories in between the chapters, plus I found the explanations very easy to relate to. I love that its geared towards gay men.
I love this book. I found it to be the best place for me to start. I am still a beginner, but I keep coming back to this book over and over. I feel like for the first time I've really found a spiritual side I can really relate to.
I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."
One often associates witches and women with Wicca and Paganism, but where do gay men fit into this ancient tradition?
It turns out that there is a long history of gay men in Wicca, and there is a deep well of meaning to be found.
A combination primer on Pagan spirituality and practice, and how it relates to gay men, and account of Ford's own personal journey, The Path of the Green Man is a keeper for anyone wanting to deepen their understanding of Wicca.
This was a very pleasant read, it was nice to hear about modern pagan spiritualism from a gay man's point of view and about a spiritual path that works for many gay men.
