"Keepers of the Flame Twenty Day Vigil & Journey with Goddess Brighid" with Heidi Wyldewood

Upcoming at Imbolc: a self led course for women that will appear in your inbox a bit at a time over the twenty days. All I know about it is what you see here.

This is from the "About" page:

Heidi Wyldewood is facilitator of healing journeys, mentor, priestess, walker between the worlds and a sacred activist.  She is a keeper and creatrix of wild medicine and womb wisdom traditions, living life from the heart, often with the soles of her bare feet on Mother Earth.  Her main areas of interest and understanding, which she weaves into her sharings, are Goddess traditions; womb wisdom, both ancient and new; Toltec, Inkan and Celtic shamanism; symbolism within fairy tale, myth and folk lore; Earth Magick; yogic philosophy; mysticism, female empowerment and sacred sexuality...

...Heidi is the creator of the Brighid Path Essences, the founder of the New Forest and Southampton Red Tent and currently the UK Coordinator for the Worldwide Womb Blessing.  She is also the author of the Red Thread Journal.

walking the wild, wise way

Mentoring, healing and education for women - teachings born of indigenous shamanic practice, earth magick and womb wisdom traditions

Join Heidi Wyldewood and Lou Hayden as they follow the tradition of priestesses keeping vigil over a Sacred Flame, the flame of Brighid.  Take a sacred journey with her, alongside a circle of sisters, learning some of her history, her symbols, songs and wisdom.

This self led course for women will deliver to your inbox throughout the days of vigil, inspiring you with meditations, songs, prayers, writing and self inquiry prompts, and crafting in a mixed media format.  You will also be guided though the Fire and Water of the Three Cauldrons for personal insight, transformation and awakening.  

This course also contains two energetic transmissions, one at each end of the course.  The first one
"Following in Her Footsteps" is linked to Kildare, where Brighid's Flame still burns, and the second one "I AM the Flame" is linked to the sacred Isle of Iona, where some of her priestesses  are said to have been trained.  Both transmissions are channelled by Heidi directly from the sacred feminine in her aspect as Brighid.

Join us as we honour and celebrate her triple aspects as Goddess of Blacksmiths, Healers and Bards.  Let us bear witness to the staying power of her sacred prescence in our psyche and hearts as she transforms from Ancient Goddess of the Celtic Lands to a much loved Saint.  Let us welcome in the Maiden and the springtime, and connect deeply to the Divine Feminine within and without.  Does she call to you to tend her Flame?
