To unpathed waters, undreamed shores.
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

The Winter's Tale, Act IV, scene iv

 

 

 

The white stag is a part of early Celtic mythology. Its appearance can indicate that the Otherworld is close at hand and that a mortal has trespassed on sacred grounds. Its appearance can also signify the beginning of a great adventure.

. . . Each journey and the challenges that come with it are unique to the individual. But whether you go deep into the woods to pursue the fabled white deer, as King Arthur did, whether you enter the Grail Castle, as Parsifal did, whether you push off from familiar shores as Odysseus did -- you must be willing to leave your home behind and enter the uncharted realm of your soul's wilderness.
