Imbolc is the time when we start to see the very first signs of spring. It is still winter, yet this is the time when ancient people celebrated the ewes coming into their milk just before the lambs were born. The earth is still cold and frozen, yet renewal is beginning. The days are getting longer and the land will soon awaken.
Join Paumanok Island Protogrove as we celebrate this Imbolc together as a community! We will be honoring Celtic deities in this ritual.
All people of good will are welcome to our rite! Family participation is encouraged.
We will meet at 1 pm for a pre-ritual briefing. The rite will begin promptly at 1:30. This rite will be held indoors.
At the conclusion of the rite a fellowship meal will be held. Please bring a covered dish of shareable food for this time together. Vegan and non-vegan foods are both acceptable.
There will be a $10 per person charge for use of the facility. You may preregister at the store. This money is going to directly to the facility. Please send a private message to us if this is a hardship for you so that we can make sure no one is turned away for lack of funds.
Please feel free to bring personal offerings for the ancestors, nature spirits, and deities. If you have any questions please contact us! Information about ADF may be found at www.adf.org
