Flower Face: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Blodeuwedd
With a Foreword by Jhenah Telyndru
Ninth Wave Press 2016
Blodeuwedd. Flower Face. Keen-Eyed Hunter in the Night.
Dwelling for centuries in darkness, flying on owl wings along the liminal boundary that straddles superstition and sacred symbol … this world and the Otherworld … archetype and Divinity… the essence of all that is Blodeuwedd is venturing once more into the light of consciousness.
Simultaneously Flower Bride and Owl of Wisdom, Unfaithful Wife and Lady of Sovereignty, this complex figure holds many lessons for those who seek to know her, and through her, learn to shed the fragile petals of illusion wrought by the expectations of others, in order to birth the authentic Self that is able to see Truth with owl-wise eyes.
Whether she is simply a legendary figure from Medieval Welsh lore, or is in truth a Sovereignty Goddess once worshiped in Celtic Britain, there is no doubt that Blodeuwedd is celebrated and honored in modern times as a Divinity in her own right.
As part of the movement to understand the deeper significance which underscores her myth found in the Fourth Branch of The Mabinogi, here then is a collection of essays and meditations; poetry and songs; drawings and photographs; scholarly research and experiential encounters, which explore the nature of Blodeuwedd in all of her facets — remembering her mythos, reclaiming her Divine Status, and renewing her role as an initiatory Goddess who empowers us to be free.
