Banyen's Description: 

Brigid is worshiped worldwide—and especially in Ireland—as a source of inspiration, protection, and blessing. In Tending Brigid’s Flame, Lunaea Weatherstone presents the beloved Celtic goddess as a true soul-friend for women today, exploring her legends and lore, attributes and allies, holidays, symbols, and sacred places. Filled with rituals, exercises, and meditations, Tending Brigid’s Flame shows how to welcome Brigid into your home and make sacred all the activities of everyday life, from food magic to faery traditions, and from scrying to personal healing. Using the symbolism of fires that burn in hearth, temple, and forge, this breathtaking book sends you on a journey through the transformative power of one of the world’s most revered goddesses.

Brigid crosses the borders of theology, appealing to those who worship in both grove and church, circle and convent

Celtic spirituality is very much an earthly path, connected to the daily and seasonal cycle of time, as well as the timeless of poetry, creativity, and magic. The supernatural and the mystical have never been lost. The Celtic tradition honors many deities, both local spirits of a particular place and those who bless a wider realm of universal understanding. Of these holy ones, Brigid shines brightest. Her influence is invoked to bless all aspects of life, from midwifery to metalcraft.

I am a priestess and flamekeeper vowed to Brigid. The purpose of this book is to present her as a fiery force in the world today, specifically as in inspiration in the lives of women. 

With illuminating reflections from nineteen wisewoman devotees of Brigid, this book shares ways in which Brigid transforms and inspires through craft and creativity, healing of body and spirit, the power of words, and tempering your skills into personal excellence.

It is my hope that you will know Brigid not only as a goddess to be worshiped but as an anam cara, a soul friend.
