The Name

[vc_column_text]

Cerridwen is the Celtic deity of creation and education, who, like all Celtic deities, defies the dichotomous associations of light and dark and champions immersion, interconnection, and emergence over linearity and separation. Elements of light and dark, birth and death, pain and joy, are needed for the act of creation. Moreover, the very illusion of art and its deception to tell the truth has important educational qualities.
