Caer Sidi, The Fortress of the Fairies
is mentioned in the Book of Taliesin (Lewis Spence).
That Caer Sidi (Camelot) was the Seat of rituals and initiations for Healing and
Divination of an extraordinary vitality and importance to
the Celtic psyche is no new thesis . But that it can be
re-awakened today, simply through a comparative
experiential study of Grail
Lore and Himalayan Tantric Shamanism
is a testimony we want here to share with
One of the Island of Crystal, or Caer Sidi, is the Celtic, Cathares, and Knights Templar sacred
archaeological Mandala situated at the entry of the Gorges du
Verdon, some 150 km northwest of Nice, South-of-France.
the seat of rituals and initiations for healing and divination
practices, which originated from the Black Sea (Wisigoths and
Scythes Central Europe) and the Asian Steppes (Kelts and
Huns), and continued into early Celtic-Roman times and later
Holy Grail Mary Magdalene Lore.
(also spelled Sidi, Sidh, Sid, Sith ...)
may be regarded as the standard term
in the Gaelic tongue of Scotland , Wales and Ireland. While
some reliable authorities further stress that Sithide
or Sithde is the genitive of Sithd, a female
fairy, Gaelic records Sidhe as also implying "hill"
or "mound". Mounds and hills often are both graves and
abodes of the elves.

synthesis of the Tsa-rLung, Yogas and Keltic Archetypal Healing practices.
It will include numerous references
to the Grail and Keltic Christendom Lore Mythology giving Keys
for the practices (Wolfram Von Eschenbach) in relation with the
