This year at Sacred Space I spent a lot of time working on the process of moving on from the numerous instances of loss I've experienced (friendships breaking down, an intense and difficult break-up, my Grandmother's death). I felt a powerful need to call upon the energies of the Morrigan - somewhat for her fury in the beginning, but mostly as a source of strength and self-empowerment. I wore my raven earrings for much of the conference to help me in this. It gave me a great deal of self-confidence in talking to people I didn't know and building upon new friendships that had just begun.

I found this song "Innocent Wind (Wind God Girl)" by a group called Morrigan. It's not a pagan band - in fact I'm pretty sure it's from the soundtrack to a video game - but I listened to it and it speaks to me of the Morrigan and her birds.
I am still a bit burnt out from the intensity of the weekend, so I will be writing one or two posts with my thoughts on the conference later this week when I have more of my brain back. In the meantime, enjoy the music and have a lovely week!
