Imbolc is one of the four annual cross-quarter festivals of the pagan year - a fire festival, a time to kindle what wants to be lit in our hearts for the phase to come.
At this time, though it may seem like the doldrums of winter - we see the first tendrils of the light of the year shining through. Imbolc is the traditional first festival of Spring and a time for initiating new projects, and sparking inspiration for all that comes with the light of the year. It's also the feast day for Bridget.
The Celtic goddess Bridgit is the mistress of healing, poetry, and smithcraft. What wants to be healed in your body and heart? What song of life do you have in you to sing? What will you forge in the fires of your life? Brigid invites us to questions like these, and more. Her body is alive and potent on this and neighboring islands.
In this workshop we'll enjoy yogic movement as a part of an Imbolc ritual... we'll cast of circle of potency for the light of the year, bless our projects and ventures, offer song, and feast in the way of love and beauty with morsels from the witch hearth of Chef Heather Umlah. Expect an afternoon of love, inspiration, and friendship, with time to ask questions of Leila and Heather about life practices to integrate back home after our time together.
