For many people Dionysos is an obscure Greek god of wine and theatre. For others he is so much more.

The Dionysian Spirit examines, in an easy and accessible form, the essence of what Dionysos is all about, both as a deity and as a cultural and social force. It looks at the relation of Dionysos with his opposite number Apollo. The twin gifts of Apollos and Dionysos are ekstasis (ecstasy) and entheos (enthusiasm) and have informed and enlivened our lives and cultures from ancient times right to the present day and beyond.

The Dionysian Spirit – like the art of a good party – has always been with us and now, in many ways, we need it more than ever.

Seán Fitton

Seán has been a practising Pagan for more years than he cares to remember and a follower of Dionysos for about 15 of those. He lives in the wilds of north Manchester with his wife and carer, Sara, children and pets and runs a local house moot. This is his first book and he intends to write another if he can squeeze it in between acting and musician jobs.
