February Open Circle: Imbolc
Location: Portland New Church, 302 Stevens Avenue, Portland, Maine
These open circles are held monthly, generally on the first Sunday evening of the month (there are some exceptions). The intent is to provide a space for members of the Pagan community to come together to celebrate and create connection. The circle ritual focus will be different each month.
February Circle: Imbolc
In our circle this month we will celebrate Imbolc and the returning light. Imbolc is a holiday of the first stirrings of the return of Spring. Though the days here in Maine are still cold and snowy, the days are growing longer. Those who work office jobs may still see some light in the sky when they head home from work. If you are a gardener you begin paging through seed catalogues and may even start some early plants inside. The fire of creativity begins to stir.
In our ritual we will bless candles to represent the light of our own inner creative fire. Attendees are welcome to bring their own candles to bless but we will also have some on hand too.
Please bring yourself and a snack to share.
