Through ancient myth, this experiential workshop guides you on a healing journey of exploration into the landscape of your consciousness
Welsh Mystic and Psychic Energy Healer Sâde Gryffin deftly conjures the stories of his native homeland.
In this workshop, you will experientially explore, through meditation and ritual, the symbols and themes of the Tale of Taliesin. The Welsh Druidic and Bardic oral traditions are thousands of years old, predating the Christians and Pagans, yet the stories are still relevant and resonant. These ancient stories are known as teaching tales and are the Welsh sacred scripts, layered with powerful knowing that opens to those ready to seek it.
One of the seminal tales of Celtic lore, the Tale of Taliesin, is the story of Cerridwen, the powerful witch/goddess who brews for a year and a day her magical potion of Awen, to bestow the gift of all the knowledge of all the worlds on her son Affagddu.
After the brew is accidentally imbued by a young boy tasked with stirring her cauldron, she fiercely purses the now all-knowing Gwion Bach. The shapeshifting chase of Cerridwen and Gwion Bach ensues over land, sea, and sky as they morph into creatures of these domains, culminating in the ultimate transformation of Gwion into the golden-browed legendary poet Taliesin.
What to expect
The workshop incorporates guided Energy Healing Meditations and Welsh Earth-Honoring ritual practice.
No previous knowledge of the Tale of Taliesin is needed; this is for complete neophytes and for those who know the tale well. This experiential class is not meant as an academic investigation of the text.
You do not need to be of Welsh or Celtic heritage to benefit from this class, the spiritual knowledge is open to all who respect it.
Each person can participate at a level they feel comfortable at physically, emotionally, and energetically.
The workshop is a Queer and Trans* centered space. All are welcome to join.
A limited number of QTBIPOC scholarships are available, contact me for details.
