Join Heidi Wyldewood and Lou Hayden as they follow the tradition of priestesses keeping vigil over a Sacred Flame, the flame of Brighid.  Take a sacred journey with her, alongside a circle of sisters, learning some of her history, her symbols, songs and wisdom.


This self led course for women will deliver to your inbox throughout the days of vigil, inspiring you with meditations, songs, prayers, writing and self inquiry prompts, and crafting in a mixed media format.  You will also be guided though the Fire and Water of the Three Cauldrons for personal insight, transformation and awakening.  


This course also contains two energetic transmissions, one at each end of the course.  The first one "Following in Her Footsteps" is linked to Kildare, where Brighid's Flame still burns, and the second one "I AM the Flame" is linked to the sacred Isle of Iona, where some of her priestesses  are said to have been trained.  Both transmissions are channelled by Heidi directly from the sacred feminine in her aspect as Brighid.


Join us as we honour and celebrate her triple aspects as Goddess of Blacksmiths, Healers and Bards.  Let us bear witness to the staying power of her sacred prescence in our psyche and hearts as she transforms from Ancient Goddess of the Celtic Lands to a much loved Saint.  Let us welcome in the Maiden and the springtime, and connect deeply to the Divine Feminine within and without.  Does she call to you to tend her Flame?
