"Gwilym has an extraordinary academic command of this material, yet allows space to imagine into the unknown spaces beyond the texts, resulting in learning experiences which are rigorous as well as meditative. A valuable teacher.”

"Equally academically solid and inspired by turns, Gwilym’s work is fascinating, highly detailed and easily accessible at the same time. . . . I am so delighted to have found this wellspring of ancient literature, lore and insight."
