Sacred Source -Satyr/Herne

Home Order
Satya Sai Baba

Satyr/Herne The Intelligence of Nature. His secure, stolid, sexual presence reflects qualities of being common to vegetative and animal life forms unburdened by the human quest for rationality. This is the Wild Man archetype revived by Robert Bly. Horned, satyr-like, boldly ithyphallic, he is an allomorph of Celtic Kernunnos, or the randy Gaulish giant Grangousier. In medieval times he was identified as Herne the Hunter with Jack O' the Green, the sacrificial year king surrogate of harvest festivals; he shares qualities of fertility also with the foliate-headed Green Man carved into chapel cloisters throughout western Europe.
