The Spring Equinox – March 16, 2013
Pre-ritual briefing at 3:15. Ritual to begin at 4:00.
We will gather at the Kripalu Yoga and Wellness Center in Adams, NY, to celebrate the arrival of new life in the land! Although Imbolc officially kicks off the spring season in Celtic countries, it’s not as obvious in Northern NY until around March. Join us as we wake up the land, honor the Nature Spirits, and bless seeds and gardening equipment for the growing season ahead! Feel free to bring something small for our gardening altar for this blessing – a packet of seeds, a hand shovel, a potted plant, a photo of a tractor or special tree.
There will be a time in the ritual for drumming, so you are invited to bring your drums or other percussive instruments. There will also be a time to make offerings to the Nature Spirits. Suggestions include birdseed, oats, herbs, flowers, poetry, or song.
Potluck to follow. This High Day potluck challenge is to make traditional Irish or Irish-inspired food! Please see the potluck thread on the Facebook event page for more information.
