Discover a simple and gentle way to connect to the sacred through reflection inspired by the cycles of the year and the rhythms of the day. Sign up to receive the Daily Sacred Act.
The Daily Sacred Act is inspired by seven women who I have named Sacred Warrioresses and whom I have studied and worked with closely for years. These women highly influence teaching that I do around the sacred feminine, the warrior woman traditions, Irish and Celtic spirituality and herbs for healing the whole body: mental, physical, spiritual.
THESE REAL AND MYTHOLOGICAL WOMEN, MY SACRED WARRIORESSES, INCLUDE:
Brighid of Kildare: an Irish goddess of healing, smithcraft and poetry and saint in the Christian tradition. One of the 3 patron saints of Ireland. Known as Mary of the Gaels, midwife to Mary and foster mother to Christ.
The Morrigan: an Irish goddess of battle, death and transformation who often appears in the form of raven.
Hildegard of Bingen: a 12th century Benedictine abbess. An herbalist, mystic, composer. Recently sainted by the Catholic church and designated as a Doctor of the Church.
Mother Mary: Mother of Jesus.
Maeve, Goddess of Sovereignty: Sovereign queen of Ireland, a gateway to the kingship of that and and a warrior woman. A woman of the great myth The Cattle Raid of Cooley.
Sheela na Gig: an Irish and Celtic icon of fertility, life and death. A symbol known to appear over church entrances and windows with mysterious origins. All similar in the fact that Sheela is holding open her womb.
Mary Magdalene: Friend, consort, disciple of Jesus and a leader and visionary in her own right.
Thank you for joining me and these beloved Sacred Warrioresses on a journey of intention, staying connected to the sacred who dances within us and without.
