Imbolc Blessings from Chinook Hills Grove

We met Sunday afternoon inside a beautiful home for our Imboc Celebration, Ritual and Feast. This marks a full year of our group getting together for the 8 Celebrations, and what a good time we had!

We honoured the season and Brigid by making Brigid's Crosses to use in the rite.  It is much too early for the first green shoots to appear here, in Calgary,  however, some sprouting Paper White bulbs stood in for Snow Drops.  We have learned that there is a variety of Snow Drops that can possibly be grown here... something for next year!


After the ritual and the fabulous feast, everyone left with a tea light candle from the ceremony to light at home, as well as a green ribbon to hang  outside tonight as Brigid's mantle. 


Some plans were made for Alban Elier  and an upcoming drum making workshop. Thank you to everyone for the delicious pot luck and good cheer!

Blessings of the Season
