After the story, Marisa explores:

  • She closes this season of KnotWork Storytelling as she opened it: with a solo episode and her own story that is inspired by Irish lore, but is entirely her own invention.
  • The origins of the Celtic Sovereignty Goddess and the meaning of Sovereignty in Irish and Celtic culture. It’s not about toxic individualism or nationalism!
  • The tendency we have to “orphan” our creative work and move on to the next project too quickly
  • The question “what do women want” is drawn from the Dame Ragnell story from Arthurian legend. You’ll find a retelling of the story in The Sovereignty Knot.
  • Why, in these difficult times, we need mythology and goddesses like these more than ever.
