This is Brigid - Goddess & Saint is an informative read on the
essence of Brigid in both identities as Goddess and Saint.
From a historical perspective we can see how Celtic Irish
society venerated the divine feminine as well as other gods
and goddesses. Out of this society emerged Brigid: Ireland's
most cherished female deity who is still considered today to be
the triple goddess of Poetry, Healing and Smithcraft amongst
others. Information is presented on Brigid as daughter of the
Dagda, partner of Bres and mother to Ruadan. Her eternal
presence is explored in the four elements of Fire, Water, Earth
and Air, in the natural landscape all around us and in the various
stages of womanhood witnessed in Maiden, Lover, Mother,
Queen and Crone.
As Catholic Saint her early life and her many miraculous feats
contain similar undertones to that of the Goddess. In her lore
as Saint we see examples of a strong, independent woman who
knew her own mind and followed her own heart and life path.
Who is Brigid? Goddess or Saint or both? In what expression
of her do you find connection? How does she relate to a
modern audience? Learn about Brigid in her
two distinctive but overlapping considerations
and find ways to see her aliveness and ever
presence in today's world.
