Imbolc (Womyn Only Ritual)

February 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Dear Sisters,
We will be gathering on the new moon, Feb. 4th, to celebrate the turning of the wheel. This Holy Day of Imbolc is traditionally a time of initiation and a celebration of the great Celtic goddess Bridget, or Brigid. Life is returning to the earth, lambs are bouncing in the green fields, the first fragile crocuses appear. The days are visibly longer now and we feel a stirring of life force energy in our souls.
As Bridget is the goddess of poetry, smithcraft ( or any of the making arts) and healing, we will celebrate her, and ourselves, by taking a metaphorical trip to her sacred healing well and blessing ourselves with her healing waters. We will light candles, sing songs and share poetry to honor the sacred fire without and within.
This will be an intimate ritual in close quarters, since the Garden Club was unavailable, we will be circling in Ruby’s living room. Carpooling is strongly encouraged. There will be some parking available in the driveway that should be reserved for sisters with mobility issues. There is also parking on the street, but when folks park on both sides of the street it can become too narrow for neighbors with large trucks to make it home. So please be mindful of others as you park.

Please feel free to bring a song or a piece of poetry to share. There is much wonderful poetry, inspired by the sun, in this year’s We’moon calendar. If poetry isn’t your thing, you can bring something you’ve crafted to place on the alter. Of course, snacks are always welcome, but coming empty handed is OK too.
We gather at 7:00, ritual begins at 7:30. Call Ruby at 541-461-4051 if you need directions or have questions. Blessed Be
