The Ancients envisioned the entire cosmos in the form of a tree whose roots grow deep in the ground, branches reaching high into the heavens. Britain was once covered in extensive oak forest, and reverence for Trees is at the heart of Celtic spirituality. Druids had their teaching centers in the midst of Oak groves, and the words for wood and wisdom are similar (Welsh gwydd and gwyddon). The Celtic Druids, priestesses and healer-women encoded their deep knowledge of trees and herbs into an ancient cryptic Tree alphabet - an Ogham ciper — Beth Luis-Nuin.
Yggdrasil is the World Tree of Norse Mythology, the Giant Ash tree that links and connects all the known worlds, the earth below, and the heaven above. Also known as the Tree of Knowledge, the Tree of the Universe and the Tree of Fate, Yggdrasil is the axis, the center of the creation of the Universe. Three roots connect the World Tree to the three wells that flow beneath. The well of Mimir whose waters are the source of all wisdom, the Well of Fate - Urdarbrunnr, guarded by the Norns, the well of Hvergelmir - Roaring Kettlle, the source of many rivers that nourish life. Within Celtic tradition, the Great Oak tree is most revered, and the Druids are said to have worshipped amongst the ancient groves.
