Anyone able to reintroduce me to the "correct" path? I have forgotten so much that I can't even help my wife.

Cool! True you have to understand the story behind the story.

Tegwedd, I agree. I use the mabinogion tales all the time in my work and am very grateful to both Charlotte Guest and the Jones brthers for bringing them to light in Victorian times. But ... none of these writer had a handle on the real stuff that the taleswork with and so made the gids into charicatures. With Arianrhod, for instance - the Lady of the Moon & Stars - the whole cycle of Naming, Arming and Wedding are rites of passage, not sulky mother tales! The Victorians also skirt round Gwydion being Llew's father as it "wasn't nice". As for poor Blodeuwedd, the Queen of the Night fairs very badly! What Gwydion and Math do is to make a body from 9 flowers, symbolising the 3x3 of the Earth, which a goddess can inhabit to instruct a boy in the arts of kingship. His tannaiste, Gronw, gets a bad press too as the whole purpose of the tannaiste is not understood by the Vicotiran writers. I'm putting my own oar in with tales and workshops to change the general perspective on the Mabinogion :-).

Cool.  My favorite Welsh Goddess is Arianrhod.  I don't know why.  There was just something about Her that appealed to me.  I think She was very wronged by those who wrote about Her.

Hello Tegwedd, your name comes in the same ilk, fair one, doesn't it? :-) My practice? ... arrgghh! that could be a War & Peace length answer but I won't. Working the Threads, Elen's Ways (somewhat like the nordic wyrd) and listening to the Earth, all the time; asking her what she needs of me and then trying to do that. I suppose one thing might sort of show it ... we never give healing to the Earth without asking first if She wants it; if she says "no" we back off. Jung also said it very well in his adage, "Never know best and never know first", but then he was a shaman of his own way too. We listen, ask, ask permission then ask "how" may we help ... all the old Grail Questions.


As I suspect you know Awenydd translates as "spirit keeper".

Thank you Elen for teaching me that word.  What does your practice consist of?
Comment by Elen Sentier on July 8, 2011 at 4:36am

Hello, I'm a British native shaman (we say awenydd) living in the Welsh Marches in Britain. I've known Tira for quite a while, it's good to find you here :-).

warm wishes from between the two lights,

Celtic shamanism is such a great idea. That's what I am, besides being a witch. For readings, classes, or research, call 1-888-611-7982 916-455-2267 and head on over to
