This exploration of the Welsh-Celtic myth of the prophet/poet Taliesin and the witch/goddess Cerridwen takes the reader on a transformative journey. It introduces them to core Celtic philosophy and magic, then embarks on a powerful, experiential foray into one of Wales’ most profound legends. Readers will gain a deep understanding of the myth that is the heart of Celtic mystery and become wellversed in a magical ritual for successfully working with one of Celtica’s most esteemed goddesses: Cerridwen.
Author Kristoffer Hughes, a practicing Druid and scholar, examines the historical development of the Taliesin myth, provides an engaging in-depth analysis of each character’s archetypal role in the story, and presents practical applications, including a year-long magic ritual. As lyrical as it is practical, this unique guide offers readers the tools and understanding to fully immerse themselves into the mysteries of Celtic magic.
