2020-01-31 19:00 2020-01-31 22:00 America/New_York EarthRising Imbolc Ritual

Upcoming Ritual: “Imbolc” Friday, January 31, 2020 – 7:00 p.m. ​UUFP Sanctuary   Imbolc (alternatively spelled Imbolg) marks the halfway point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. Thus, it is a fortuitous time to take stock, assess supplies, physical and spiritual, cleanse and purify tools, and prepare ourselves for the year to come. Imbolc means “in the belly of the Mother”—that is where seeds are beginning to stir as Spring approaches. Some years, our Ritual focuses on the cycle of the winter season phasing into Spring. Other times, we aim the ritual more towards honoring the Celtic goddess, Brighid, in her many aspects as a deity of fire, healing, poetry, crafts and fertility. This is also a time of new beginnings and of purification, a fortuitous time to look to the future, clearing out the old, making both our outer and inner spaces ready for new beginnings.​ Planning for this Ritual will be on Friday, January 17, at 7:00 p.m., in the Sanctuary building.​ This is an open planning session to all of good will. We often state that the “Real Magic” takes place at our Planning sessions, as insights and ideas spark, kindle, and grow into inspiration and creation. ​ The Imbolc Ritual, will be celebrated on Friday, January 31, at 7:00 p.m., in the Sanctuary building.​ A pot luck feast and social time will follow the Ritual. EarthRising strives to be inclusive, fun and safe for all ages and abilities, respectful of the Earth and all her creations, and to provide meaningful opportunities to experience the mysteries of the Universe. Blessed be!
