Interview with Edward Durand

Edward Durand is inspired by the ways in which nature can fire his imagination and often conveys this by putting pen to paper. He has spent two decades studying the wisdom traditions. By following a bardic path he was able to touch the Imbas, the spirit of inspiration. His poems are mystical journeys of transformation into the heart of nature and spirit, inspired by profound glimpses of higher truths and a reverence for nature. He has a poetry book published of poems based on the wisdom of the Ogham tree alphabet. Edward is now running a holistic healing and retreat centre in Ireland with his wife.
