This year has felt like an eternal Winter. A constant state of hibernation, of survival, of seeking warmth and protection. As the calendar year draws to a close and we are entering the depths of the Winter season, Denise and Brónach talk about their understanding of the Winter Solstice, sacred sites on the island of Ireland that you can visit this time of year and certain rituals or practices that they themselves have practiced to beckon in the return of the light again. Please leave a review on whatever platform you listen to this podcast on, a comment or a message goes a long way! Happy listening x
04. Where we got our podcast namesake, the Goddess Brighíd, triple goddess tattoos, Pagan reformation to Irish Christianity, and a call out for Hozier to join in on our conversation?
2020 Nov 281h 47s
This week Brónach and Denise discuss their mutual love for the Celtic Goddess Brighíd, as she is one of the things they bonded over when they first met. From their love of fire to their triple goddess tattoos, they discuss Brighíd’s Pagan mythology and with a couple of anecdotes along the way discuss the Christianised version of the Saint Bridget that we have come to know more freely today. Our love of her is so strong that her myth and story has come to be the basis of our podcast name, “Tending the Flame.” The inner intuitive flame, the outer flame of the community and keeping the strong fire burning.
03. Wellness: surviving, thriving, and our experiences with taking care of ourselves.
