Restoring the Wasteland – Soul Healing and Spiritual Transformation through the Avalonian Mysteries

Renowned in legend and lore as a paradisiacal Island of Healing, Avalon continues to possess the power to uplift, empower, and transform. Drawing upon the rich heritage of Celtic British mythology and the rhythms of the natural world that turn within and around us, we will explore the Avalonian Cycle of Healing — a paradigm of inner transformation found at the heart of the apple and encoded in the initiatory symbolism of the Otherworldly Cauldron. Discover how to reclaim the quest for the Holy Vessel of wisdom, abundance, and rebirth, and to drink deeply from its depths so that we may enliven our inner landscapes with its healing power

The Ninefold Way of Avalon: Pathways into Sovereignty and Service
(from 10AM – 4PM)

Come learn how to walk the Ninefold Way of Avalon and to navigate the Avalonian Stream of Tradition by using the mythic map left behind for us in Arthurian legend, Brythonic mythos, and early Welsh literature.

Jhenah Telyndru has spent more than 35 years seeking the enigmatic Island of Apples, and founded the Sisterhood of Avalon in 1995. A formally trained Celticist with a master’s degree in Celtic Studies from the University of Wales, Trinity St. David, she has developed a comprehensive system of spiritual practice inspired by Classical accounts of priestess enclaves in Celtic lands, historical descriptions of Celtic holy women, Goddesses and Sovereignty figures in Welsh and Irish Mythology, and the Otherworldly women of Arthurian Tradition. This practice centers around the Ninefold Way of Avalon, a transformative journey of self-discovery and empowerment that includes the reclamation of Sovereignty, the quest for Awen (the creative spark of divine inspiration), and being in sacred service to the self, the world, and to the Divine.

Jhenah will share her insights on the power of these ancient traditions to inspire personal growth and social change, and how the Ninefold Way can serve as a roadmap for awakening to the truth of our authentic selves. Jhenah’s well-sourced research, empowering teachings, and sharing of time-tested practices assist in deepening connections to Avalon and its Otherworldly Guardians, helping to reveal the nature of our sacred service, while setting us solidly on the path to reclaiming our Sovereignty.
