Imbolc Celebration

The solar festival of Imbolc is the first festival of spring when the Celtic Brighid as the maiden goddess melts with her wand of fire the winter snows. It offers an opportunity to melt away any obstacles, opposition, inertia or coldness in your life and to mend any quarrels. Reflection, puja and chanting and the lighting of many candles to invoke the return of the sun and the rebirth of the goddess.
