“The Earth that is Wise and Old, dreams in her sleep, and stirs”
The Celtic fire festival of Imbolc is known as ‘first stirrings’ because at this time the frozen earth begins to melt. This brings opportunities for growth and transformation, a dissolving of the past and afffirmations of things to come. The word Imbolc means Ewe’s Milk, and it signifies the time of year when the lambs begin to be born, the first snowdrops appear, and at last the days are visibly beginning to lengthen after the dark of midwinter. So Spring is not yet here, but this festival celebrates our knowing that it will come!
In Part 1, on Sunday 31st January, we will work with simple Dances, Chants and Ritual to celebrate Imbolc, this time of reawakening. In Part 2, on Tuesday 2nd February, in our regular Zikr evening we will take the theme of Melting the Frozen Heart in the Fires of Love.
