Two New Brigit Courses (with Mael Brigde)

I can't believe I forgot to post these here! I have launched two courses on Brigit with Goddess Ink and the Mystery School of the Goddess. The first is a brief introduction which lays the groundwork for the second, a thirty day activation course. Next year I plan to launch a longer immersion course as well.

Something you might want to know before signing up: Discovering Brigit (the intro) is $15 US, but if you follow the link at the end of the course to sign up for Stepping Into Brigit you will receive a discount of $13. Not a bad deal.

It was very rewarding putting these courses together, despite this being a difficult year in other ways. Returning over and over to Brigit and her lore and traditions in the midst of loss gave me sustenance and joy. Now I get to share those efforts with others; a real blessing.

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.

If you…

– are new to Brigit and want an introduction to her traditions, scholarship, rituals, and resources
– are familiar with Brigit but have read contradictory statements and want to navigate her story with clarity and confidence

Included in this course of five modules (plus “The Next Step”) are:

· A grounding in the mythology of Brigit, goddess and saint
