In the Celtic tradition, the wild goose is a symbol and metaphor for the ever present spirit that moves amongst us. Often loud, obtrusive and unrestrainable, the goose calls us by our true name and births life in unexpected places.From this new experience we are moved toward healing and wholeness.
"Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting --
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things."
Wild Geese, Mary Oliver.
