It is an introduction to the Avalonian Tradition, written by Jhenah Telyndru, Morgen of the Sisterhood of Avalon.

Many of us found the Sisterhood via "Mists of Avalon", so it's natural to associate the two. :) After I finished reading "Mists", I wondered if there was an Avalonian-based spiritual path that I could become part of and that's when I found the Sisterhood. I have been a member for about 3.5 years.

This book is as much a very practical guided adventure in trans personal psychology as it is a journey in a very rich landscape of our mythic heritage. The meditations described are elegantly simple and yet require the kind of personal accountability that is present in any genuine spiritual or psychological path of growth. Indeed I found this book made me engage in my own personal journey of growth and good old fashioned "growing up" more so than many a visit to a therapist. I was surprised, per ...more

While this was a truly thought-provoking book, I did find it sometimes redundant and lacking in the implementation strategy. Telyndru does beautiful work with analogy (clearly) connecting Avalon and Glastonbury to an interdisciplinary set of concepts that can help any woman develop a stronger sense of self. I'll reference this book again, to be sure, but I'm disappointed that the implementation will require several things not housed in the book: researching elements that are referenced without c ...more

I don't really do magic or even consider myself pagan, but I really enjoyed reading about some aspects of Celtic spirituality and mythology and a lot of this book focused on Jungian archetypes and self-actualization which I related to, loved, and learned a lot from. I liked the questions the different sections of the book asked and wrote a lot based on them.

This is the second edition, and some changes have been made. It is more well presented and colourful, how ever less grounded in Depth Psychology, but still a good guide for any aspiring Avalonian practitioner in the modern circumstances.

Avalon Within provided information on the history of Avalon and the Celts. It also provided information on the myths and legends of the area. Then it went into how to discover yourself and come to terms with your own strengths and weaknesses. I would recommend this book.

I met Jhenah at Paganicon in MN, and purchased this book from her. She goes through the approach of the Sisterhood of Avalon in clear, easy to understand language without losing the sense of spirituality and connection that is part of the Sisterhood.

If you're interested in the self-healing work of the Sisterhood of Avalon, or just branching out on your own, this is a great guide.
