A Brigit of Ireland Devotional -
Sun Among Stars
“Sun Among Stars…is at once contemplative and deeply personal, educational and reflecting the evolution in understanding and belief that we all go through over time. For this alone it is an invaluable addition to the corpus of material on Brigid… Let the goddess or the saint or simply Brigid speak to you through the author’s words as you step into a deeper understanding…”
Morgan Daimler author of Pagan Portals: Brigid - Meeting The Celtic Goddess Of Poetry, Forge, And Healing Well

I am so glad the book is almost ready to be presented to the world. My absolute favorite presentation through Land Sea Sky was your poetry reading. It resonated so deeply in my soul and brought such surges of power, visions and many tears.
Priestess of Brigit, Kells, Ireland
Poetry is sacred to Brigit, so I can't imagine a more lyrical or lovely way to enter into her heart. Meet these devotions with a contemplative spirit, and allow their wonder and joy to sing to your soul.
