Cauldron Work: The Cauldron of Poesy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Three Cauldrons are discussed in the medieval Irish text: the Cauldron of Poesy, attributed to the mythical vision poet (fili) Amergin. We will talk about the nature of the whirlpool-like cauldrons and their turning in this wisdom tradition, the importance of our emotions in this tradition (which can turn the cauldrons), and techniques to scan for personal knowledge. To turn the cauldron of wisdom upright, even if momentarily, brings mystical insight. We will discuss the key technique of incubation as well; poetry, art, song, knowledge, wisdom are fruit of this work.
