Welcome to the Light!
Imbolc, also known as Candlemas, marks the middle of winter and holds the promise of spring. The days are suddenly getting longer. At this time of the returning of the light, our ancestors lit bonfires and candles to celebrate the rebirth of the land. We look forward to warmth and new life.
We will celebrate Imbolc by lighting candles to represent our intentions and desires for the coming year, and with offerings to Brigid, the Celtic goddess of our hearths and other fires. This celebration will support us to look inward and reflect on anything we want to leave behind as the spring approaches. It will also support us to plan how to direct our energy in the months to come.
Please bring any readings, songs, seasonal foliage and a candle. You might want a pen and some paper upon which to write.

Imbolc – Celtic Celebration
Enter into the experience and meaning of Imbolc through this short, meditative video:
Falling midway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, Imbolc is one of the eight Celtic festivals in the year. It happens around the beginning of February and signifies the rebirth of the land and the coming of spring.
