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.

There was so much wonderful information in this book. Everything seemed very well researched and i want to try the cycle of healing. Like any esoteric mystery there are things that are discussed later in the book that will help with the rituals of the cycles. I felt happy to know that there is something alive of Avalon, even if it is pieced together from many sources and mystic experiences. So many women are hungry for the Avalonian experience in our lives. Thank you Jhenah for making this possi ...more

Oops! I bought this without realizing it was a women's tradition. It was certainly interesting to read though. I have passed the book on in hopes that someone else will get use of it.
I think it's a decent book for anyone getting an intro to paganism but if you're looking for advanced stuff, look elsewhere.

Though I did enjoy the book I personally felt this book was written exclusively for women and that I kind of wasn't supposed to be there in a way. The writer does have talent for sure though and i will read her next book.

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.

Jhenah Telyndru has always felt called to dance with joy in that liminal space which straddles the realms of history and myth, of individuality and collectivity, of the seen and the unseen. A creative mystic who loves science and values fact, Jhenah embraces the conscious co-creation of the future, while immersing herself in an impassioned study of the past. The path between, she believes, is whe ...more
