    The Way Was Thrilling

    First, I am not one to be taken in the Welsh Nationalist extremists, by the nasty people who seem to dislike the author, by con artists or shysters, including those who warned me not to read this book. So I did a great deal of research over the past months since first reading a used copy of this book. I have also looked at the documents and information generated by Taliesin einion vawr and Gerald Gardner. I have also explored Barddas and other documents written by Old Iolo. I have researched the bards of Prince Llewelyn (which this book is supposedly based upon). I have explored the University of Wales Library in Cardiff and in Aberstwyth. The following is a summary of the results of my research: 1) Llewelyns Bards were descendants of Druids. 2) Llewelyn was favorably drawn to Druidism 3) there is evidence that Llewelyn was a Knights Templar 4) There is evidence that his wife was a member of a mystery organization in France. 5) I found out who Taliesin enion Vawr was and where he was born. 6) I found out who Sarah (Rhuddlwm Gawrs teacher was 7) I interviewed a member of Dynion Mwyn in Cardiff Wales who witnessed Rhuddlwm Gawrs initiation 8) I actually visited the area near Betws-y-coed where Rhuddlwm met his teachers. AND found it at the direction of a member from Cardiff. It is not quite as recognizable as it is in the book, but I believe that could be because of the long period of time between Rhuddlwm Gawr's Welsh experience and when this book was written. Does it contain some similarities to Gardnerian practices. Of course. Most Witchcraft in Wales/Scotland/Cornwall comes from similar backgrounds. I looked at the Witchcraft that was practiced as late as the 1600s, that which was practiced in the 1800s and that which survived even into the 1900s. It is all very similar in its practice. This Book is no exception. Read it for the story of someone who became drawn into the Craft and "Old Religion" as the Americans say.

    This book is an inspired work of NON-fiction, but I am sure the Wiccans will attack it, the Christians will attack it, and the "Welsh Nationalist Critics will attack it. Don't listen to them. Listen to your heart as you read excerpts from it. It is not only neat, it is valuable as a good introduction to how a family tradition is practiced. In fact, its story has been copied by a great number of "Initiates" who claim to be Welsh Witches" but only read the book. Great Read!!!

    An Intermediate Book describing the journey of a High priest of Welsh Witchcraft

    This review will be short, not because I am unfamiliar with The Way. I have read it over fifty times and still refer to it today in teaching and rituals.

    It is an excellent Intermediate book which teaches Welsh Gwyddon or Welsh Witchcraft. Buy it for your library and read it for a revelation of hidden mysteries.

    Excellent Book
