About Awen West

What does the word "awen" mean?

Awen ("AH-wen") is a Welsh word that is formed by combining the two words, aw, meaning ‘a fluid, a flowing’, and en, meaning ‘a living principle, a being, a spirit, essential’.  

To me, this means putting inspiration, principles, ideas and the essentials into motion and helping them flow. This is what every individual and organization needs to reach their dreams and find success!
