Brigid is the Irish Goddess of inspiration, poetry, bardic talents, healing, and forging. She is one of the main goddesses of Druid religion, and She was the first goddess that I interacted with during Imbolc 2002. With all complicated religious deities, it is unknown whether Brigid (and the many spellings) is one goddess or many goddesses, or if it is a title of spiritual energies (An Dagda and the Morrigan also have the title/deity overlap!). Each person who works with Her forges their own relationship, and She is one of the main deities I work with for healing within my shamanism practice. For those who are interested in learning more, especially the funny stories I have about Her, please send me an email and we can schedule time for a mentoring conversation over coffee or tea!
