Llyn -y-Fan Fach, Black Mountains, Carmarthenshire, Wales.


What This Image Means To Me...: The realm of the Lady of the Lake, Nimue also known as Nelferch the faerie woman and ancestor of the Physicians of the Myddfai. Her descendents became doctors, some say they still live on scattered throughout Wales. Camping here late last Summer, I had the most amazing dreams. Some very brave Pagans climbed the ridge where they performed ceremony. The lake has a translucent quality, still, calm and peaceful. A healing place for mind, body and soul.

  Yes, I see exactly what you mean about the meadowsweet, which explains the dreams! I like the definition in Cunninghams too.

When PCG delivered his talk he was about halfway through writing his new book 'The Plant Oracle' to complement his previous 'Animal Oracle'. (He wanted it to be called Herb Oracle but the publishers didn't think it as marketable so Plant Oracle it will have to be.) Hopefully we will be able to find some more specific information in there as to where this ancient meadowsweet was found. Sorry I can't remember when this book was due to come out.Embarassed

Holger, I've not found the burial ground but there is a standing stone circle on the left of this picture. I went to the nearby village of Myddfai looking for the legendary herbal healing gardens but couldn't find them either. I just love the story.

Yes, there certainly seems to be a close connection that the physicians of the myddfai had to Llyn-y-fan-fach. Last summer at Druid network's Druidcamp I listened to a talk by ,mighty' Philip Carr-Gomm on herbs that druids might have been using. First herb he mentioned was meadowsweet, remains of it were found in an ancient burial site at Llyn-y-fan-fach. No surprise then that the place gives rise to your most amazing dreams - carry on dreaming Heddwen!
