A Thin Place at The Thinning of the Veil

Cader Idris (The Gateway to the Otherworld)

Throughout the world there are dotted special places. Places where the ethereal veil that hangs between this world and Otherworld is that thin that it can be easily traversed, especially by those whose senses are developed.

These places, unsuprisingly, are known as ‘Thin Places’ and Cader Idris is one of them. She is also known as ‘Dragon Mountain’ and ‘The Gateway to the Otherworld’.

There are also three times throughout the turning cycle of the year that the veil between the worlds becomes thinner than normal; Samhain (the beginning of winter & the darker half of the year), Midsummer’s Eve (the time around the Solstice) and Beltane (the start of Summer & the light half of the year. These times are ‘Ysbrydnos’ or Spirit Nights.

The Otherworld (Annwn) is home to ‘Y Tylwyth Teg’ (the Faer Folk) and their King Gwyn ap Nudd is leader of the wild hunt. It is also the abode of Elementals (nature spirits),  and the home of the ancestors (in this area the Ordovices).

The Ordovices were an indigenous British tribe before and into the Roman period whose territory covered much of Mid-Wales and across into England.

Spring Earth Camp will work with several bronze-age sites across the plateau of Cregennan (the location used in the film Merlin – Excerpt video below). The connection at these sites located in a ‘thin place’ should be amplified at a ‘thin time’.

The Cregennan area was a major focus of funerary and ritual activity for the Ordovices (pictures surrounding) – a complex that would have been a focal point for a wide area & includes a communal bronze-age cemetery (Hafod Dywyll, Islaw’r Dref cairns).

The camping grounds for Earth Camp are located on the lower slopes of Cader (the hunting grounds of Gwyn ap Nudd) and connections with the Otherworld and its residents are strong at any time; we cannot wait to see what experiences can be encountered at a time of the ‘Thinning of the Veil’. 

The Spring Camp dates have been chosen specifically to enable the greatest connection possible from the ‘Thinning of the Veil’ at Beltane in an already ‘Thin Place’.

Evenings are spent around the communal campfire with storytelling & drumming (bring your own) as a tribal gathering.

In Welsh tales & legends Annwn (pronounced ah-noon) is described as a classical Celtic Otherworld Paradise – an ‘un-world’ – a mirror image of the place that we call home. It is the abode of the Gods and Goddesses and home to the Tylwyth Teg, the Faer Folk.

Merlin (TV Mini-Series 1998) filmed at Cregennan Lakes – near the location of EarthCamp & the site of many standing stones, cairns & hillforts.
