Reviews

A gorgeous history [and] a journey with the goddess herself: a journey through ritual, meditation and magic. Weber does a masterful job. If you are a fan of Brigid this is the book you¹ve been waiting for. --Jason Mankey, managing editor, Patheos Pagan-- "Reviews"
Weber's debut is less a discussion of Brigid, the Celtic goddess and namesake of the Irish saint, than a user's guide to understanding a particular take on the goddess along with insights on how to interact with the aforementioned goddess in the context of modern neopagan practice. The author is a self-proclaimed priestess and witch as well as the creator of a witty photographic take on the tarot deck using New York City faces and locales, Tarot of the Boroughs. As with many books on spiritual practice in any tradition, one must believe before beginning, but once the hurdle is reached, this book is complete with illustrations, rituals, exercises, and spells. Verdict: This is not a scholar's book or a beginner's introduction but instead a hands-on manual for the neopagan believer with a powerful interest in Celtic spirituality. --Library Journal, Graham Christian, formerly with Andover-Harvard Theological Lib., Cambridge, MA-- "Reviews"
