Discover an Ancient Goddess’s Wisdom in “Brigid: History, Mystery, and Magick of the Celtic Goddess”
If you are Irish-American, then you probably grew up hearing tales about the legendary St. Brigid, but did you know that the Catholic saint shared her name with an ancient Celtic goddess? High priestess and author Courtney Webber’s new book Brigid: History, Mystery, and Magick of the Celtic Goddess explores the myths surrounding this ancient goddess and shares her wisdom with readers.
Weber starts off by exploring the origins of the ancient goddess and explains how she is honored by modern-day Pagan. Instead of focusing just on Paganism, the author makes sure to offer readers an in-depth explanation to Brigid’s ties to the saint of the same name and the Voudon Loa Maman Brigitte. For Pagans who are interested in spicing up their daily magical routines, Webber also includes guided meditations and exercises that allow readers to tap into Brigid’s healing powers on their own time. Webber also makes sure to add her own personal insights on the goddess. She does not merely parrot dry academic tones but weaves in her own spiritual experiences that is sure to fascinate readers, even if they are not Pagan themselves.
Whether you are a Pagan devoted to Brigid or simply someone who enjoys reading about mythology, Brigid: History, Mystery, and Magick of the Celtic Goddess will leave you with a new appreciation for Ireland’s most popular deity.
