The Ancient Wisdoms,
Old Welsh Prose from 21 Lessons of Merlyn: a study of Druid Magic & Lore by Douglas Monro. The ancient wisdom refers to the wisdom of the Ancient Druids and bardic tradition in Wales. The mythology of the Welsh Druids is often associated with the name of Taliesin, Merlyn, or Merlin, the wizard-like figure that J.R.R. Tolkien uses as a model for characters like Gandolph the Grey in Lord of the Rings. The ‘Wizards’ or Druids were actually the poets, philosophers, scientists, seekers and all- round wise men of their time. They have associations with other ancient sects such as the Pythagoreans and both were famous for keeping no records of knowledge.
Everything they learned was committed to memory, much of it was encoded and passed on verbally in song or poetry to preserve the sanctity of the words.
The Pythagoreans believed that number was sacred, for the Druids, it was the letter.
Consequently, they developed an intricate relationship with the alphabet. Each letter would have a plethora of associations and when each of those meanings combined in the word, it had tremendous power.
On Summer Solstice 2017 I would like to share with you Selections from Eternal Echoes by John O’Donohue. A Celtic Shaman, O’Donohue writes on the longing of the soul, our spiritual relationship with ourselves and others, and belonging. Blessings are selfless wishes and these are my wishes for you, that you may find self-love, that you may see the light in yourself and others, that you will open yourself to the shadows too, and embrace the danger of freedom, love, and renewal.
What elements are essential to the changing self? Vehemence and emergence is about self-recognizing and self- exploration aiming for the the synchronicity and wellness of our bodies, minds, and spirits; this means that change is an essential component, but what makes change in the Self?
John O’ Donahue’s book Anam Cara was my first introduction to Celtic Wisdom and since that time, over a decade, now I have encountered and explored many other wisdom traditions, now including, the Yoga Sutra and the spiritual teachings of yoga. While I appreciate and am grateful for a comprehensive viewpoint, I consider the Druidic and Celtic perspective to be my home base. In that light I would like to share with you Samhain; Etymology, Philosophy, Traditions, as well as a Special Samhain inspired Yoga Sequence, Shaman Music Ritual, Guided Meditation, and Samhain ASMR.
