Awenydd is a Welsh and Cornish word which means poet/seer/oracle. It is pronounced “ah-wen-ith” with a hard th, as in they, rather than the soft th of thistle. The plural form is Awenyddion. Awen is poetic/prophetic inspiration, put simply. I explain more, here.
My name is Lia, which I have decided is short for Folia (as in leaves and pages), or on some days when I’m feeling vast, short for Liakoura, the mountain where the Greek Muses, the Oracle of Delphi, and Orpheus lived, known as the home of music, poetry, literature, and learning.
I am a poet, anthropology/philosophy/botany student, bard, bookworm, artist, crafter, musician, parent, partner, and lover of life and beauty and darkness and the entire mystery.
Awenydd of the Mountains is my personal spirituality blog… for sharing my general spiritual musings. A larger gathering of Awenyddion can be found here.
Be welcome in my grove, be open-hearted here, and may we learn from each other.
