Jhenah Telyndru

Jhenah Telyndru  has always felt called to dance with joy in that liminal space which straddles the realms of history and myth, of individuality and collectivity, of the seen and the unseen. A creative mystic who loves science and values fact, Jhenah embraces the conscious co-creation of the future, while immersing herself in an impassioned study of the past. The path between, she believes, is where the mysteries are revealed and where true magic happens.

Jhenah Telyndru holds an MA in Celtic Studies from the University of Wales, Trinity St. David, as well as a BA in archaeology. She is the founder of the Sisterhood of Avalon and serves as academic dean and lead instructor of the Avalonian Thealogical Seminary. Jhenah teaches four day retreat experiences around North America and the UK, and facilitates pilgrimages to sacred sites in the British Isles and Ireland. She is a frequent presenter and guest speaker at academic conferences, religious symposia, Women’s Spirituality gatherings, and Pagan festivals. A priestess in the Avalonian Tradition, Jhenah has been dedicated to the work of Avalon for 25 years, and has been active in the Goddess Spirituality movement since 1986.

Jhenah is the author of Avalon Within: A Sacred Journey of Myth, Mystery, and Inner Wisdom (Llewellyn 2010), creator of a unique Avalonian Posture System demonstrated on the instructional DVD Trancing the Inner Landscape: Avalonian Landscape Postures, and has also produced a spoken word album of guided meditations entitled Journeys to Avalon: Immrama to the Holy Isle — a powerful companion to Avalon Within, which also stands beautifully on its own. Along with illustrator Emily Brunner, her most recent offering is The Avalonian Oracle: Spiritual Wisdom from the Holy Isle book and deck from Schiffer Publishing (2016).

She is a contributing author to several anthologies including The Scribing Ibis, Naming the Goddess, The Pagan Leadership Anthology, Which Witch is Which? A Concise Guide to Wiccan and Neo-Pagan Paths and Traditions and several annual anthologies published by Llewellyn. Jhenah’s writing has been featured in periodicals including Sage Woman, Witches and Pagans, PanGaia, The Beltane Papers, Circle Magazine, and The Tor Stone.

In addition to her formal studies, Jhenah has delved into hermetic science, kabalistic philosophy, transpersonal astrology, archetypal tarot, and depth psychology in an ongoing quest to further her understanding of the Universe as it manifests within and without.
