Celebrating the earth womb, water bearers, and births of spring
Last Sunday was the birth, travels and tales of the woman who became St. Brighid. This Sunday Sessions focuses on the goddess traditions that are said to have inspired the life, crafts and teachings of Brighid of the Eternal Flame. Many people interpret this as the Earth Goddess called Bhride, Bride, Brighid, and other similar names.
During this Sunday Sessions we will focus mainly on water, the earth goddess springs, the so called holy wells, water bearing, births, and the overall Rites of Spring Birth.
Where I live, there is usually snow fallen on St. Brighid's Day, at least on the hills and low mountains around Carrowcrory. By the sidereal timed point of Imbolc, a few days later, this snow is melting, going down the geological swallow holes, and then underground, picking up minerals and chelating them on the way underground, and appearing in the natural springs, replenishing the wells, and bubbling up into the turloughs, the temporary lakes in fields at low levels during February. After February this water has gone and fertile meadows grow. Waterbearing and natural birth flows over the land.
During this Sunday Sessions I will be doing very little talking, for a change, but have invited women guests to share their inspirations, visions, quests, 'water bearing' and guidance that flows through them from Imbolc.
This Sunday Sessions will be like a mini Wise Woman online festival.
