Awen 22

Over the last few months I’ve been posting up a series of thoughts on Awen, which is the term used to describe creative inspiration and divine blessings in Druidry. Here is the last posting in this series:

Awen is milk of the Goddess, seed of the God: divine nectar, flowing creative inspiration. It is like the Amrita of Hinduism, but a little different, like the Grace of the Christians, but a little different, like the Tao of the Taoists, but a little different.

Imagine you can drink Awen – after all Gwion did. When you sip mead from a chalice in a Druid ceremony, imagine that you are drinking the Awen from Ceridwen’s cauldron.


  1. The Awen posts have been terrific! Alright, I’ll say, they are most inspirational. I’d love to see a book with your ideas, experiences, and some exercises and meditations to help become aware and develope a personal relationship with Awen. Thank you!

  2. Thank you Abaris! I’ll see what I can do! Blessings, Philip
