Welcome to the Carnutian Nemeton, also known as Tegos Carnution (House of the Carnutes) or Tegos Branorunânon (House of Raven Secrets). This is a space dedicated to Gaulish Paganism, Gaulish Druidism, all things Druidic, and the exploration of spirituality and culture. As a Druið, I am inspired to honor our Ancestors, Gods, and Spirits, and to reconnect to Gaulish customs, culture, spirituality, religion, and the cosmos.
My personal journey is guided by the philosophies of Alchemy, Stoicism, and Liminality, which serve as my torch to inspire and illuminate to help guide others to their own paths. As Priest of Awen, I want to help illuminate the Awen within the individual. I am a Druið of Drunemeton and Galatîs Litauiâs and a Delgaunos of Touta Nouiogalation. Additionally, I am a Grand Grove member Druid of the Ancient Order Of Druids in America (AODA) and a Deacon in the Gnostic Celtic Church (GCC).
The Horned Raven and the Wheel – My Symbols
The horns on the raven are seen as a symbol of the third eye or inner vision, representing the ability to see beyond the limitations of the physical world and to access deeper levels of consciousness. In this sense, the horned raven represents the process of psychological integration and wholeness, as well as the idea of spiritual transcendence. The Horned Raven symbolizes the power to transcend the limits of rational thought and connect with the mystical and intuitive aspects of the psyche to bring spiritual illumination.
The wheel has many meanings but truly, that of the journey of the soul through the Cosmos.
The Three Laws, known as Trirextoues, are a set of principles in Gaulish Paganism Given to us by the Senodruies (Ancient Druids) They are: Dugie Dêuûs “Honor the Gods”; Gneie ne drucon “Do no evil”; and Delge āxtam “Hold your behavior”.
