ON DEMAND – Imbolc: A Celtic Festival of Light

Imbolc, also known as Candlemas, is a time to set goals, make promises and resolutions.  It is symbolic of the first stirrings of life in the frozen seeds that were planted in the autumn, and also represents the first stirrings of life in the commitments we make to improve ourselves.  Join us in this workshop which will share Imbolc lore, traditional customs and ceremonies and a guided meditation to empower you to renew your New Year's resolutions along with any other commitments you've made for the coming year.

“Deep beneath Her frozen surface, Mother Nature has a secret so precious that only She can be trusted to keep it. There is a subtle stirring within the seeds that Autumn left behind in its hurry to flee Winter’s deathly grasp: And as this treasured secret struggles to be known, Her promise of the first stirrings of new life is at last fulfilled” Photo credit: Christian Orlov


Timing is everything!  Imbolc (February 1) is an ancient festival that has survived for centuries.  This precursor of Valentine’s Day has been adopted by several spiritual traditions and also has become a secular holiday.  It is the celebration of the first stirrings of life in the seeds that lay frozen since they were planted the previous Autumn as well as signifying the “quickening of the heart”, as our ancestors considered the heart the seed of the human organism.
