Imbolc

Imbolc seems to be the least-known of the eight major Pagan sabbats… or at least it is here, where attendance is usually lower than any of the other holidays. We had 26 at the Denton CUUPS circle last night, which for Imbolc is pretty good. We were probably helped by unseasonably warm temperatures – it was 74 yesterday.

Our Imbolc circles tend to be contemplative, and Dolores led a wonderful guided meditation to Brigid’s Forge. I can’t speak for everyone, but I received a message that was loud, clear, and I think, helpful. We’ll see how things go over the coming weeks.

If you’re in the DFW area, join us on February 13 for our bi-monthly Adopt-a-Spot cleanup as we put our faith into action and care for our little corner of Mother Earth. Our next circle will be the Spring Equinox, which we’ll celebrate on March 26.

I write as a spiritual practice. It helps me organize my thoughts and work through ideas and concepts. It helps me evaluate my beliefs and practices against my core values and against what I know (or at least, what I think I know) to be true. It helps me interpret my experiences (religious and otherwise) in ways that are both meaningful and honest.
