 'Awen' derives from the Indo-European root *- uel, meaning 'to blow', and is the same root as the Welsh word 'Awel' meaning 'breeze'. Awen is the breath of inspiration, wind of the spirit, or breath of the divine which gives inspiration. There is a parallel word to 'awen' in Irish, 'ai', also meaning 'poetic inspiration' which derives from the same ancient root.
