INTERVIEWS

Unlocking insights

Through these interviews, I got the opportunity to delve into discussing water as a vital resource, and to explore the many ways in which it impacts our lives and the world around us. I often mention our own responsibility in caring for the water

"This story was inspired by a woman I met on a sacred hill in Ireland. I couldn’t explain why I was so strongly called to Ireland, but as soon as I met her I knew that I was there to remember. The land here is feminine, like the goddess herself is speaking up through the hills and holy wells. It was an initiation into honoring the divine feminine, remembering the priestess path- a path I didn’t even know I could walk. The priestess has been lost to memory. We must look back into the recesses of subconscious for archetypes of powerful femininity, for they’ve been written out of history. Yet there are those in the world who’ve kept the mystery traditions alive, who still speak the light language of ancient magic, passed through thousands of years of tradition bearing. This is about one of them. "

REALITY OF SOUND

Saraí Humble is a sound healer, yoga teacher, and Irish activist focused on environmental stewardship and indigenous rights. (See Topic Timestamps below) Saraí and I spoke on many topics during the interview, which was edited down to 1 hour, comprising two parts. The first part focuses on sound healing, including how she was called to the profession, experiences with participants and more. In the second half of the interview, Sarai talks about sacred sites in Ireland, her work with the holy wells of Ireland, and her current project All is Well. I hope you enjoy this session, packed with insights, stories, and knowledge on sound as well as Irish culture. See links below for more information on Saraí and All is Well.

Last Sunday was the birth, travels and tales of the woman who became St. Brighid. This Sunday Sessions focuses on the goddess traditions that are said to have inspired the life, crafts and teachings of Brighid of the Eternal Flame. Many people interpret this as the Earth Goddess called Bhride, Bride, Brighid, and other similar names.

During this Sunday Sessions we will focus mainly on water, the earth goddess springs, the so called holy wells, water bearing, births, and the overall Rites of Spring Birth.

Where I live, there is usually snow fallen on St. Brighid's Day, at least on the hills and low mountains around Carrowcrory. By the sidereal timed point of Imbolc, a few days later, this snow is melting, going down the geological swallow holes, and then underground, picking up minerals and chelating them on the way underground, and appearing in the natural springs, replenishing the wells, and bubbling up into the turloughs, the temporary lakes in fields at low levels during February. After February this water has gone and fertile meadows grow. Waterbearing and natural birth flows over the land.

During this Sunday Sessions I will be doing very little talking, for a change, but have invited women guests to share their inspirations, visions, quests, 'water bearing' and guidance that flows through them from Imbolc.

This Sunday Sessions will be like a mini Wise Woman online festival.
