Healing Magic of the Celtic Goddess Cerridwen

 

In the times of the Celtic people the Healers were chosen from the very young, who showed the aptitude for the Craft. Often at age 5 the children would start to train for 20 years and only finish 20 years later, to graduate as a healer of their tribe. However, that was not the end of their journey….


Most notably it would be the girls who would excel as gifted healers although there were also some male healers.


Wether trained by their own mothers, as Cerridwen trained Creirwy, or if they were fostered away from their homes for many years, never to see their families again, the young women were honoured on their accomplishments in this work. 

Cerridwen is the Brythonic Celtic Goddess of Healing, Herstory tells us about the way She brews Her cauldron to make a special elixir. This tells us that she was a healer, She looked after the people of Her tribe. 


She guides the trainee healers through their journey of learning the efficacy, the magic and the responsibility of becoming an Ovate. 


In this talk I weave the few facts we have about the way the Celtic Healers were trained from a young age, with the legends we hear about their healing powers, to the myths about the healing Priestesses who lived here in Avalon as a legacy of the Ovate caste. Including the way these legacies have been picked up by modern day Druids and Priestesses/Priests.
