Imbolc is this week and we are exploring different ways to celebrate and to knowing Brigid. Cairelle Crow and Laura Louella, editors and creators of Brigid’s Light share with us the journey of creating this book, exploring a personal Brigid practice, and methods of honoring Imbolc. We also explore walking in grief and the misnomer of Brigid being a “beginner Goddess.” Digressions include “Shank-uary,” an ugly bra, and our hacked IG account. Plus, what we’ll be teaching at the TWL Mini-Con! A listener is curious about reusing the herbs in our spell kits. On Patreon: Our full conversation with Cairelle and Laura, plus Courtney reads her essay in Brigid’s Light, for the first time since she wrote it!

Our Guests Today:

Cairelle Crow has walked a goddess path for more than thirty years, exploring, learning, and growing. She is a priestess, genealogist, wanderess of wild and holy places, and co-foundress of the Sanctuary of Brigid and its flame-keeping circle, Sisters of the Flame. She lectures locally, nationally, and internationally on the blending of genealogy with magic and is dedicated to connecting magical people to their ancestral truths. She also organizes Divine You retreats that introduce magical women to sacred travel experiences. When she’s not roaming the world in search of grandmothers, quirky art, and stone circles, Cairelle is home in New Orleans, where she lives joyfully, loves intensely, and laughs frequently with beloved family and friends.

Laura Louella is a priestess, certified Pilates instructor committed to teaching the strength that lies within, and the owner of Goddess Pilates, where she blends the art of sacred movement with the beauty of the goddess. She is also the co-foundress of the Sanctuary of Brigid and its flame-keeping circle, Sisters of the Flame. Many days, you can find her tending her garden, taking long walks through the forest, sitting by the river, or creating a quilt on her 1936 Featherweight Singer sewing machine. Laura lives in the Cascade Mountains of northern California.
