WELCOME

Welcome Dear Sister, I am so delighted to have you here in this sacred spaced.  I created The Sisterhood of the Sacred Flame to help my sisters flourish in life.  This is a place of learning and growing with support of a sisterhood.  My first goal when creating this sisterhood was to create a safe forum for women to bond and support one another.  A place to share you dreams, your heartaches, your joys and your sorrows, and to know that there is never judgement amount your sisters, instead we are here to life each other up, hold space for one another and celbrate life toghether.

The Sisterhood of the Sacred Flame is a sub-division of Ord Brighideach.  It was Brighid herself that inspired me to take the Order one step further in creating an atmosphere of learning and sharing for sisters all around the world.  However it was important to me to seperate the sisterhood from Ord Brighideach because it's important that Ord Brighideach is welcoming to our brothers.  As one of the few flame keeping organizations that except men, I never want them to feel they are unwanted, because I very much appreciate and enjoy the men members of Ord Brighideach.  However my background in spirituality and teaching is very much geared towards feminine mysterious, and I feel it is important for women to form bonds with our sisters, to bring back the times when women lifted each other up, instead of standing in judgement or feeling as if they are in competition with one another.  This sisterhood will also be a way of providing the necessary funds needed to maintain Ord Brighideach without ever needing to charge our members dues, which is something very important to me.  

Over the next few years The Sisterhood of the Sacred Flame will be constantly evolving.  I have so many ideas, and so much knowledge and experiance, that I am so excited to share with you.  But in order to offer the very best to my sisters, I know I must take my time in each phase.  We will begin with opening of The Red Tent Forum, and then as time goes on a Priestess course and some live events to follow.

WHEN WOMEN COME TOGETHER

When women come together,

something magical happens.

It’s science, the mystical kind,

and it’s an unstoppable force,

to be reckoned with.

When women come together,

they connect,

on a deeper level,

both spiritually and cellularly.

Souls nodding in alignment, I see you.

Put women together for long enough

and their cycles will sync.

If that is not an example of the wondrous,

connective majesty of womanhood,

what is my friend, what is?

When women come together,

an unseen wall is fashioned,

built from the wisdom of the breaks,

we have all endured,

and the passion to scream louder,

so that those beneath us can hear,

and need not suffer the same.

When women come together,

and tell their stories,

the good and the bad,

the power created is a tsunami of strength and intuition.

Washing us all on to better things.

A wave of majesty, wisdom and connection.

When women come together,

we are, quite frankly, intimidating.

So watch out for those will keep us apart.

They are afraid.

We are not.
