Ordinary Women. Listening & Loving.

Heroes didn’t leap tall buildings or stop bullets with an outstretched hand; they didn’t wear boots and capes.
They bled, and they bruised, and their superpowers were as simple as listening, or loving.
Heroes were ordinary people who knew that even if their own lives were impossibly knotted, they could untangle someone else’s. And maybe that one act could lead someone to rescue you right back.”
~ Jodi Picoult

Empowered Women, Empower Women.

All the myths of gods and goddesses live within us, symbols for our many parts.  As we share our experiences with one another, we see our similarities and see our separation melt away.  We also become empowered appreciating the energy inherent in our life cycles.  We see our lives are filled with decisions, directions, and corrections as we constantly create the persons that we are.  We are on a journey, a gradual path that takes us back to our unique selves.  Along the way we get glimpses of our true beauty, that ability to express our inner lives in harmony with the outer self.  This balance of all our qualities, gives us a durable and gentle power, a power and beauty that comes only when we are faithful to ourselves.

~ Lucia Bettler

Real beauty is about our legacy, how we shape our lives, and the character of our spirit.

Started by Lauren Santerre, the Brigid’s Place “Woman of Beauty” initiative is in an on-going celebration of
the true beauty of women from the inside out.

Join the dialogue and experience transformative moments that will enliven your spirits, bring you closer to the Divine, and allow us to love ourselves and each other in more profound ways.

Women Of Beauty

The Brigid’s Place mission is to provide education, dialogue and celebrations that foster the personal and spiritual transformation of women.

We imagine that you might have a few moments of surprise, a couple of tears, and even a jolt of discomfort, yet,
we also promise it will be worth your time.

So come, grow with us in community. Remain in the tradition of St. Brigid that honors learning, rejoicing, living, and experiencing life together!

It will be great, and you will be loved.

Brigid you were a voice for the wounded and the weary. Strengthen what is weak within us. Calm us into a quietness that heals and listens. May we grow each day into greater wholeness in mind, body and spirit.

As women, our lives are seasoned with blessings and challenges. The Brigid’s Place Prayer team can offer the supportive power of prayer to heal, to grow, to find peace.

Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or slow to do the humble work.
