This collection of Adele Cosgrove-Bray's poetry describes how, at the age of nineteen, she entered an order known variously as the Eternal Companions or the Initiates of Ma'at, which was led by an elderly man called Thomas Joseph Walton, (or "T"). His philosophy was similar to that of GI Gurdjieff's.

"Entering the Grove" describes her seven years with this group. She hoped to find answers to a series of experiences which had haunted her since early childhood, as depicted in the poems "I Wonder", "Twilight" and "Love's Hermitage", but she gradually became disillusioned with Walton's philosophy.

In 1999, Adele joined the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD), and this heralded the start of a highly creative period. Yet she had still found no solution to the life-long mystery which haunted her dreams. What was this presence, this beyond-human entity, who had walked into her dreams all her life? A figment of a vivid imagination, or simply longing for an idealised companion? No-one had any answers.

As she moved deeper into the Ovate grade with OBOD, her inner journey took her along an unexpected route away from OBOD, as is hinted at in the last poem of this collection, "Dream Life".

ALSO INCLUDES the first chapter of Adele Cosgrove-Bray's forthcoming novel, "Tamsin".
