The Lake of the Maidens


Core Team member Afric recently visited a little village close to Porthmadog in Wales. On her visit, she made a pilgrimage in the rain, into the clouds, at the top of the Roman steps near Llyn Cwn Bychan. She walked up the mountain steps and as she reached the clouds she veered to the left to visit the beautiful mountain Lake of the Maidens. Nestled amidst the clouds, this lake is spoken of in the Mabinogion as it is where Blodeuwedd is chased to before she was turned into an owl. It is truly a wild and sacred place. As Afric stripped off clothing and dipped in the lake she truly felt a Wild Woman and blessed with the beauty of the land and the sisters she swam with.
