Weaving Brigid Into Your Life

Kildare cross3 day workshop February 5th, 6th, 7th

Capture the first of the new blooming Spring with a few days of appreciation of the spirit of nature through the tradition of Brigid guidance.

Explore the sacred sites of Bride, share the crafts of Brigid, and join in the sharing of her teachings through our labyrinth, songs, poetry, stories, harp music and quiet reflection

Friday:

Exploration of the earliest reverence of Bride, of Brigid :

Ceis Coarran Mountain and caves, Morrigan’s mountain through which Bride was born and fertilised the land

Carrowkeel Cairns and viewpoint of references to the coming of Brigid each year through the arrival of the whooper (Brigid) swans and how that ancient symbolism is still so sacred with so many people today without knowing this most ancient of traditions

(I will also repeat this day on Monday February 8th for those who cannot attend on the 5th)

Saturday

The crafts of Brigid :

Introduction to her four colleges of instruction, through demonstration use in our labyrinth garden

Making of brigid crosses and brigid cloaks

An evening of connection to Brigid through songs, harps, poetry and candles

Sunday

Imbolc Reverence and the entering into Celtic Spring :

A tour of the sacred wells of Brigid’s “sisters”, Lasir the shepherd and lady of vision, and Attracta the lady of the healing plants, plus some time by the River Brideog where the first Abbess Brigid of Kildare, St. Brigid, is said to have spent her early teen years.
