Avalon Within

A while ago I stumbled upon a book called Avalon Within written by Jhenah Telyndru - it is "A sacred journey of myth, mystery and inner wisdom".

And it is a very lovely book :-)

This book takes you to the Isle of Avalon where you can experience and utilise the magic and mysteries of the Priestesses of Avalon.

You are guided to connect with five Goddesses - Rhiannon, Ceridwen, Blodeuwedd, Arianrhod and Branwen working with the five elements and tying it all in with the sacred landscape of Glastonbury.

Taking you on a journey of empowerment and transformation to seek the Goddess within using Celtic mythology and the wonderful Arthurian legends.

The book is extremely well written and laid out with easy to follow pathways.

I have read the book through and am now going back over and working through all the details and exercises.

Jhenah Telyndru is also the founder and Morgen of the Sisterhood of Avalon.

  1. I really need to re-read this. I read it when it first came out and I wasn't at all impressed and felt a lot of what was in the book was super disconnected from what (I guess) I thought it was going to be about. I have tossed around the idea of revisiting it and I think I'll add it to my list for the Pagan Reading Challenge this year. :)

  2. Thanks for the write up - I've seen this book but wasn't sure about buying it.

  3. Rowan - I haven't started working with the exercises properly but it does look like it should be interesting, I shall blog about how I get on! Mary - you are welcome!

  4. Thank you for the review - I also have seen this book and thought of purchasing it.

  5. This is a very good book! When it first came out, I was fortunate enough to belong to a group of women who found out about it and we worked through it together.
