Ancient Goddess? Christian Saint? Neo-Pagan Deity? Who is Brigit? How do we know? Where can you find reliable information about her, and materials which take an approach that’s right for you?
The Irish goddess Brigit and Saint Brigit are inextricably tied together, yet each plays distinct and powerful roles in the daily lives of people around the world. Mael Brigde’s introductory class, Discovering Brigit, teaches some of her basic aspects and offers tools for learning more about her and exploring the idea of welcoming her into your life. A full Brigidine Well Meditation rounds off this short, lively course. Discovering Brigit is open to people of any gender identity, creed, or race.
