Celtic Christmas: Arthur and his Ladies Travel Guide

Welcome to the Celtic Christmas Arthur and his Ladies travel brochure.
Here you can read where we are going the twelve days of Christmas:


In the first night we will meet Ragnell whose male counterpart is Gawain. Ragnell is a shapeshifter, Gawain is a noble man, nephew of King Arthur and his challenge is to understand the greater connections between visible and invisible worlds. Her brother Summer dances with his sister Ragnell: Midwinter in a cycle to celebrate the changing of the seasons in the cycle of life.

And in the last night, to complete our journey around the Lake we will search for our inner Grail.

 

 


The Grail, as round as the Lake we have traveled, is a symbol of our true Self. And you must have grown aware of the fact that our true Self is full of flaws. But only a bright light casts a big shadow. I hope during the year you will revisit the Lake, enjoy the company of the Ladies and take a sip out of the Grail.
