blodeuwedd-cover3aFlower Face: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Blodeuwedd

Edited by Kelly Woo and the Editorial Committee of Ninth Wave Press

With a Foreword and Introduction by Jhenah Telyndru

Ninth Wave Press, 2016

Whether she is simply a legendary figure from Medieval Welsh lore, or is in truth a Sovereignty Goddess once worshiped in Celtic Britain, there is no doubt that Blodeuwedd is celebrated and honored in modern times as a Divinity in her own right.

As part of the movement to understand the deeper significance which underscores her myth found in the Fourth Branch of The Mabinogi, here then is a collection of essays and meditations; poetry and songs; drawings and photographs; scholarly research and experiential encounters, which explore the nature of Blodeuwedd in all of her facets — remembering her mythos, reclaiming her Divine Status, and renewing her role as an initiatory Goddess who empowers us to be free.

In addition to the foreword and introduction, Jhenah has several pieces in this anthology, including the essays “Reclaiming Blodeuwedd”, “Maid of Flowers, Made of Flowers”, as well as several pieces of poetry.

This anthology features over thirty authors, thirty essays, and decades of leadership experience sharing their failures and successes as leaders as well as showing you how you can become a better Pagan leader. Jhenah’s essay: “Creating Conscious Community: Avalon as Metaphor” appears in this anthology.

ibisfrontcover The Scribing Ibis: An Anthology of Pagan Fiction in Honor of Thoth

Edited by Rebecca Buchanan and the Editorial Board of Bibliotheca Alexandrina

Bibliotheca Alexandrina, 2011

ISBN 1466223278

He was Creation’s First Storyteller. To soothe a wrathful Goddess, ibis-headed Thoth spun tales of honor and greed, love and treachery, Gods and princes and pirates. Entranced, charmed, Her rage cooled, the Goddess returned to heaven. Order was restored.

And so it is in His name that we dedicate this collection. Here, modern Pagans and polytheists continue that ancient tradition, weaving stories of creation and loss, death and rebirth, humor and courage, transformation and destruction. From the banks of the Nile to the icy north, from modern-day Kansas to far future alien worlds, these tales sing of the grace and glory of the Gods, and Their place in our lives.

Jhenah is honored to have her short story “The Gallisenae” included in this anthology, which will be used to help promote the revival of the worship of the ancient Gods, with a portion of the proceeds given to a worthy charitable organization in their name.

New Page Books, 2004

Which Witch is Which? is that much needed informational guide to the histories, beliefs, and general practices of the most popular Wiccan and Neo-Pagan Traditions.
