Woman Spirit Ireland has been a torch-bearer in celebrating and researching the festival of Brigit for many years, and now that Brigit’s flame burns ever-brighter, 2022 is the last year before Brigit’s Day becomes a public holiday in Ireland, all thanks to the resurgence of interest in Brigit, goddess and saint. 

Saturday 29th January 2022 7pm to 9pm  GMT. Please research time zones in your area 

Tickets: Standard: €20; Concession: €10

This webinar interweaves strands from folklore, plant wisdom, traditional hearth prayer and healing on many levels with poetry, art and music to offer an experience of Brigit as Soulsmith, Poet and Healer.
