As the wheel turns toward Samhain, we begin to embrace the dark. It is a time of rest and introspection. A time of releasing and letting go. A time of death and rebirth. This is the time of year when the Goddess Cerridwyn most calls to me. This is my retelling of the Tale of Cerridwyn.
This story about the sacred fool hails from ancient Greece. There is very little historical text written about Baubo, so this tale is a compilation of what research I could find and my own imagination. I first told this story during a ritual in September of 2017. I hope you enjoy this retelling of the Baubo myth!
