Brigid, whether you view her as goddess or saint, is a deity who covers a lot of territory. She’s a goddess of so many things in life: the herd, the kitchen, the garden, healing, midwifing at both ends of life, fire and the hearth as well as the forge, writing, and warrioring. I’m sure I missed a few things. She fulfilled just about every goddess role in the ancient Celtic world. This book covers them all.

Weatherstone is a long time priestess of Brigid, and has done mountains of historical research, but she didn’t take this huge task (250 pages) on by herself. She enlisted 19 other women to add their unique takes on Brigid. Because paganism can be largely a do-it-yourself religion, I appreciated this as it offers a much more rounded view of Brigid and how she is being worshipped/prayed to/invoked today. There are ways shown to integrate Brigid into just about every part of one’s life if one should so choose. The book is written in an easy to read style without the dryness that many religious texts have. ( )

Filled with rituals, exercises, and meditations, Tending Brigid's Flame presents the beloved Celtic goddess through three aspects of her sacred flame:

Hearth: The Welcoming Flame opens the door to receive Brigid into your home, to protect and make sacred all the activities of everyday life. Food magic, hospitality, and house-blessing are some of the ways Brigid keeps your home fires burning.

Temple: The Devotional Flame explores Brigid's allies, seasons, symbols, and sacred places. You'll meet Brigid's sister goddesses, both Celtic and worldwide, and learn about the timeless custom of flamekeeping and other ways you can offer your devotion to Brigid within the temple of your heart.

Forge: The Transforming Flame 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.

Brigid has brought Celtic spirituality close to the hearts of people worldwide. Tending Brigid's Flame celebrates your own personal connection with Brigid and her place in your world.
