So, I'm attracted to shamanism (particularly Celtic) but I'm finding my own path with impulse and instinct.
I've always been intuitive/empathic and highly connected to nature, but it took me this long to see it was more than my imagination, as I was raised in a pretty Christian family. I've been delving into metaphysics and magic as a "purely academic" interest, and that's allowed me to get this far.
But, I'm kind of starved for people to talk to about magic and nature and spirituality in a serious context, so here I am.
Kelly McCullough's "WebMage" series, Rob Thurman's Cal Leandros series, Stephen R. Lawhead's "Hood", and Mary Stewart's Merlin trilogy.

Something I perhaps should bring up here is I'm unorthodox. In everything. I guess that's what comes from following my own ways, and those are formed from multiple sources, some fictional, some fluffy and questionable, some reputable. But I'm a firm believer in exploration, and I feel it's never a bad thing to look in all corners, even if only to get a feel for what you know isn't right.
...I think the lines from Mary Stewart's Merlin says it best: "When you're looking for...what I'm looking for, you have to look in strange places ... there is nothing in this world I'm not ready to see and learn, and no god that I'm not ready to approach in his own fashion." This is more or less my own personal philosophy as well.
