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.

I completely recommend this book, its nice to read a book relating to being gay and wicca/witchcraft/paganism. I feel this book would help many people regardless of sexuality. includes some beautiful stories, the author is direct and to the point, very informative and gave me a new outlook on my spiritual path
"An interesting look at pagan spirituality."
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.
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.
"Journey Down the Path of the Green Man"
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.
"informative and entertaining"
an all around great way to teach the pagan ways that makes us feel more welcome in a female dominated world of wicca.
this book held everything I was looking for and much I didn't expect. I particularly enjoyed the stories of the sabbats. it was comforting to feel the author walking through his own spiritual exploration. this book had me at the green man's gift to the horned god.. and of course again at the entrance of Pan. ^_^
Conceptual rather than practical, but a nice intro to these ideas for those unfamiliar with the old ways.
