United Kingdom of Great Britain - Alba
Why I wish to join The Temple & how I found out about it...
I am a previous member invited initially by the founder, Leila Raven - now returning after a lengthy period of absence.
About Myself & My Interests..
I am an 80 year old retired classical scholar, teacher & lecturer in musicology, recitalist & conductor but still involved in research, giving tutorials in Keltic Metaphysics on line and composing music (mainly choral & organ by commission). I have now been married for over 30 gloriously happy years to Sîan - a most wonderful, loving and caring lady whom I love most dearly.

Old Gareth lives in a wheelchair with no legs & multiple health problems but I'm still breathing and adapting well spacially so life can't be all bad. lol

It's 70 years since I had the old Welsh legends recounted to me as a 10 year old and my whole life has been centred around the major pantheon therein.

My website "Kaer Dathyl" has been on line since early 1990s - an exposition of the hereditary family of Y Plant Dôn - The Children of Dôn who revere the pantheon from the Fourth Branch Mabinogi. Those who choose to enter Kaer Dathyl may savour the Keltic spirit therein.

Now after considerable expansion, it may be seen at the following URL:- http://www.yplantdon.com. You will be very welcome to visit where you can meet "the family" and learn a little of this Welsh tradition with access to a lengthy taxonomy of the Major Deities, philosophical approaches and texts, etc. unique to Y Plant Dôn with some tangential references to Sanskrit & quantum physics.

It is a VIRTUAL TEXTBOOK on theoretical & practical Keltic Metaphysics! All are very welcome to visit and stay awhile.

I try to provide some inspiration to the few Kelts who study this website. It may be used, however, for the microscopy of other pantheons via the Metaphysical Law of Analogy.

I am neither a Druid, witch nor Wiccan (although I have had much interaction with the Sanders and one of Gardner's early High Priestesses) but class myself as a mystic & metaphysician. When pressed to hang a label around my neck, I usually say I am a Keltic Cosmotheist who works with his wife as a pro bono Consultant Metaphysician, hypnotherapist & hypnoanalyst.
My Teachers & Influences, What was it about them that influenced me?
The interest shown to me as an individual by college lecturers & tutors plus that important character trait owned by some - charisma.
Authors and/or Books I appreciate
The Mabinogion; Red Book Hergest; White Book Rhydderch; Black Book Caermyrddin and works on psychology (especially Jungian) and the works of the German philosophers. The Cranwell Lectures. Indeed when it was not only fashionable but also mandatory to be a Freudian, I was a confirmed Jungian!
Musicians and/or Music I appreciate
From the following Periods of composition:-
Baroque - Bach, Buxtehude & Handel
Classical - Beethoven & Gluck
Romantic - Wagner, Liszt, Brahms, Elgar & Puccini
Nationalist - Borodin, Cui, Balakirev, Moussorgsky
Rimsky-Korsakov (the Russian "Five")
Modern - Holst, Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Vaughan Williams,
Elgar, Menotti & Mahler

Big Band swing and Modern Jazz
New-Age Impressionism
Films and/or Film-Makers & Actors I appreciate
Kevin Spacey, Russell Crowe, Robert de Niro, Anthony Hopkins, Denzel Washington, Gene Hackman, Nicolas Cage, Morgan Freeman, Ian McKellen, Jack Nicholson, Jack Lemon, Michael Caine, Ben Kingsley, Sir John Gielgud.
Artists and/or Art I appreciate
Salvador Dali, Max Ernst, Maurice de Vlaminck

October 2014 - Our 30th Wedding Anniversary

The Dark Matriarch

Cimmerian of hue
Th’enduring Matriarch;
Corporeal yet incorporeal
Dwelleth She
In glorious mansions infinite,
Bedecked in swirling melismas
Of kaleidoscopic brilliance
And in deep dark wells
Whence none may egress find.

Her fingers yet caress
Each bright assemblage
That be Her jewellèd form
And venerated disposition - aye too,
In spaces all that linger well
As soundless sentinels
To bed Her children down
In quietude secure,
She lives Her lovely life.

Constant in growth She moves,
Outspreading All within The One,
An everlasting wonder iridescent -
Veracity in resolute perfection.

We see, we feel and understand
The pledge of life profuse;
And all our yesterdays,
Our years extant,
Yea all our firm futurity
Are bound as one
In ageless perpetuity.

Within my soul roameth She ~
My silent spirit Her sweet breath,
Until She summoneth me
From paths of consummation
To swiftly homeward steer
For Kaer Pedryfan,
The celestial bliss
Of Gwynfa Gorawen.*

(* Paradise of Rapture)
