Imbolc Open Ceremony
Saturday 3rd February 2018 1:30pm
Open ceremony to honour and celebrate the time of Imbolc. Gather at Ardington Woods car park near Wantage at 1:30pm and process to Ardington Millenium Stones for 2pm start.
We will honour the first tentative signs of spring – as the sap imperceptibly begins to rise the first tender new shoots and buds appear, snowdrops push through the still cold mud of the land and nature begins to stir after the cold dark months of winter. Now is the time for us to nurture those seed thoughts we have held and tended through the dark months – we will spend time recognising how we have coped through the winter months and how our seeds of intention have fared; we will honour the quietly rising tide of spring and spend time honouring this time of the ancient goddess Brigid, goddess of birth, of poetry and of the flame.
Please bring biodegradable offerings to the spirits of place, a small candle, drums, rattles, and deep respect.
Offerings of bread and mead (or similar) for the ceremony gratefully received! All welcome.
Car park is to the east of the road from the A417 to East Lockinge, opposite School Road
