Institute was in existence as an auxillary of the Church of Y Tylwyth Teg,
Inc. from 1975 until 1990 at which time operations ceased from lack of
interest. It is presently an auxillary of the Celtic Church of Dynion
Mwyn, Inc., a Georgia non-profit religious corporation and church.
Bangor Institute currently is inactive, has no students and has no
The intention of Bangor Institute is to activate the Institute in the near future and offer an graduate and undergraduate program in Religious Holistic Health and Religious Metaphysics. Bangor Institute will be primarily a school for: Religious oriented programs of theology, divinity, religious education, and ministerial training.
Bangor Institute will be composed of various Departments administered by "Facilitators," who are recognized in their field. Their teachings will be marked by a different concept: they will teach not so much what to learn as how to learn.
The philosophy of the religion of Dynion Mwyn as expressed in Bangor can best be described by Kahil Gibran:
"What is it to work with love? It is to build a house with affection, as if your beloved were to dwell in that house. It is to sow the seeds with tenderness, as if your beloved were to eat the fruit. It is the teaching of the heart."
|Although Bangor will offer
training in Religious Holistic Health, Religious Psychology and Religious
Metaphysics, it will be primarily a School for of theology, divinity,
religious education, and ministerial training. Bangor Institute
will teach a holistic philosophy... that all parts of the universe are
interrelated... "As above, so below."
Education is a part of everyone's life: true education is not something you experience and then forget. It is a way of traveling your life pathway properly. Education at Bangor Institute will draw on all traditions, both ancient and modern for training the Whole person...Body, Mind, and Spirit alike. Development of intuition will be given equal weight with mastering the subject matter, and specific disciplines are the context in which the pathway will be traveled.
This technique of training the whole person will rely on the concept of learning excellence. Excellence requires balance: An Archery expert, when instructing her students in marksmanship, teaches that the arrow will not hit its mark if the mind of the archer is disoriented and confused. An arrow's path is a good indication of the state of mind of the archer...an indication of how much the student has learned about the subtle balance of Gentleness, Strength, Relaxation and Control.
The tremendous beauty of this philosophy is that it shows us a pathway back to an understanding and appreciation of nature as a way of life. By integrating the various dimensions of ourselves, we remain healthy.
This description of life as a living balanced system suggests a new concept of "Spiritual Health," which can be summarized as: "The ability of a living system to respond adaptively and positively to a wide variety of environmental challenges."
The Welsh Bardic Tradition, the model for Bangor Institute, is an ancient one. It derives from the ancient Celtic Bardic College System that flourished in Wales and Ireland from before recorded history through the third century A.D. This system provided a focus for all areas of learning current in the British Isles at the time: Religion, Philosophy, and the Arts and Sciences. Like the Celtic College System, the educational philosophy of Bangor Institute will emphasize the many fold development of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of the whole person. This development of the many aspects of humanity also involves the intuition.
Intuition is not an easy sense to describe. It is the act or ability to "know" without the use of rational processes; an immediate cognition of basic truths. While the methods of training your intellectual, emotional, and physical capabilities may be obvious, the training of your intuition and spiritual qualities are not.
At Bangor Institute, intuition and spiritual awareness will be learned through contemplative practices such as Meditation and Martial Arts. These practices develop a balance between strength and gentleness which is the mental environment where intuition and spiritual awareness can flourish.
This systematic development of intuition stems from the teachings of Taliesen, who was a Druid teacher and celebrated Bard in Wales. He developed his mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects through both study and contemplative practices. In doing so he became truly wise and was revered as a sage and bard. He taught using the ancient Celtic Bardic System.
The form of instruction which we have developed from this ancient learning system is the foundation for what we call the Five Fold Path. Students in all areas of learning will be taught and evaluated in five basic ways:
awareness is built on the willingness of the student to see and acknowledge
without judgement, the psychological experiences of his or her life.
Second, the student's psychic, intellectual and intuitive insight is developed by specific scholarly and artistic disciplines as well as contemplative practices.
Third, the student develops an appreciation for the cultural context and tradition within which a specific discipline has arisen.
Fourth, the student develops the ability to truly communicate with others. This includes appreciation of the value of the experiences, insights, and viewpoints of other people; relating to them with openness, honesty and curiosity; and finally:
Fifth, the student develops the ability to take effective and positive action in the world at large, whether it is in the area of study, family or job.
|A teaching system
based on holism may seem unlikely, but throughout life we see that when this
principle is applied, people become more balanced with nature, themselves
and other people. The training of intuition and intellect at Bangor
Institute will bring forth each student's creative abilities and has a
positive impact on the way various disciplines are taught there. Whatever
the course of study, each student, as well as the faculty and staff members,
takes delight in the educational pathway on which they travel.
