About this Event

Featuring Facilitator Mary Condren, The Centre for Gender and Women's Studies, Trinity College Dublin - Dublin, Ireland ; Founder & National Director of WomanSpirit Ireland

And presenters:

The importance of empowered women to our planet is more critical than ever before. Today we face many complex and pressing issues, from climate change to social and political injustice to the concentration of wealth and power into fewer hands. For a new world to emerge, we need a set of values that will challenge the systems from which these struggles arose. We need our courage and passion to be twinned with wisdom and compassion so we may engage in sustained and hope-filled action that can regenerate our wounded world.

With this Brighid Festival occurring during the season and energy of Beltaine, we will also spend time exploring that each of us is a daughter of both human mothers and Mother Earth. We come, literally, from their bodies. Many of us are or will also be mothers ourselves- some physically, some spiritually, and others in chosen relationships. Mother Earth groans under the neglect and failure of modern societies to honour Her. Relationships between human mothers and daughters can be compromised by shadow qualities. Transformative tools are needed to help create understanding and shift these entrenched patterns so that Brighid’s Flame can be passed between our generations with grace, honour and possibility.

The Circle Women’s Collective for Spirituality, Activism & the Earth warmly invites you to come nourish yourself by exploring these topics, alongside the stories and myths of Brighid. The spirituality of Brighid stretches back from our own time to predate organized religion and taps into the universal figure of the Sacred Feminine, the Great Mother and wisdom traditions found within many cultures. Come and experience powerful ritual, play with song and movement, take part in creative workshops, lectures, teachings, and discussions with by our amazing team of facilitators led by Irish thealogian Mary Condren. Delight in the bounty and beauty of sharing meals and our own stories, and join in the fun of our Saturday night céilidh or celebratory evening. This weekend will provide you with the opportunity to reconnect and re-member, to be en-couraged, enlivened and inspired. Together we will generate the wisdom, the energy, and a sense of community to fuel us, as women taking our place in transforming the world.
