Come celebrate Imbolc. This is the Sabbat of blessings of the Goddess Brig. The old year is past and now we look forward to the new. It is a time to create the corn dolly, which would be brought door to door to be venerated and to bestow blessings. The candles would be lite to welcome the returning sun. It is a time to cleanse your house and your ritual space for the new season.
For this event, please bring a broom or a staff, if you have one.
If you have anything you would like to charge at this time, please label it and an area around the altar will be available.
Food for this event is potluck. Please use our Food Page as a way to tell everyone what you are bringing and a way to get ideas of what you can bring. The number of people registered is at the top.
