The madness of Merlin with Penny Billington
In times of crisis, what sustains us?
The figure of Merlin could be a rich and textured resource for modern Pagans; but not if we’ve limited our understanding to make of him a stereotype rather than archetype. What do our sources tell us about the nuanced nature of this demi-God? Prophet? Psychopomp?
Together, we’ll explore just how relevant working with his legend may be to our spiritual life in these troubled times.
