Welcome to the official website of
Caitlín & John Matthews.

We invite you to step through and visit us!
Together we like to explore the myths of Britain and Ireland, uncover the Celtic and Arthurian mysteries, explore the shamanic possibilities and create rituals that honour the ancestral ways and tell the ancient stories that our descendants will remember.

Between January and May 2015, while Caitlín was writing The Lost Book of the Grail, a study of The Elucidation, she also kept a daily diary of her progress. Within these daily explorations of what it is to be a writer researching the Grail legends, Caitlín uncovers the art of writing, the fascinating depths of myth and the mystical imagination, and the very essence of the Grail quest from both the Pagan and Christian viewpoints. Myth, Arthurian legend, history, cooking, meditation and writing interweave to frame a window on a writer’s world, giving a view of rare intimacy.  

Writing from inside the Grail myth, Caitlín looks for the handholds and stepping places that pilgrims search for upon their quest. Many of these daily entries were first shared with Facebook friends and now the full diary, completely reedited and revised, is available for everyone to read. 

You can order this from Amazon as a Kindle only this late Autumn.
